The Arrow by Laddie Mikulasko is a simplified version of the North Star.
Capable of flying off water and land, it has a great speed range. The Arrow can burn up the sky while performing high speed passes, but it can also be slowed down to almost a crawl during landing.
Any glow engine from .35 to .60 can be used to power this model. Or how cool would a conversion to EDF look!

The laser cut short kits include all of the shaped parts in balsa and ply which would normally require the builder to cut them from sheets. Items such as formers, wing ribs and other shaped pieces are all precisely laser cut. This leaves you to purchase only the sticks, spruce or balsa sheets you need to complete the kit, some of which you may already have on-hand.
All kits are proudly made in NZ! We hand select our wood stock for each kitset from the best Balsa Wood from Papua New Guinea and European Plywoods.
