Another classic from designer Joe Bridi, the UFO 65" is the next generation of Pattern Ship following on from the successful Dirty Birdy, in the unending quest for perfection!
The UFO features a swept wing and stabiliser for better roll performance, and a thicker anhedral stabiliser to make the tail more stable in some manoeuvres - along with a deeper fuselage and larger fin and rudder to help with knife edge flight. There is also more room for retract installation.
The kitset includes a vacuum formed canopy.
- Wingspan: 65" / 1651mm - Number of channels: 4 - 5 - Recommended engine size: 60 two stroke or electric equivalent - Includes full sized rolled plan and the original construction article

We can package up a complete wood kit including all of the materials in the required list for an additional NZ $152.00.
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.
* Note that the picture of the complete aircraft is indicative of it's completed appearance. The kitset requires building and supply of all finishing materials & hardware.
