You can email me using the “Contact Us” link on the site menu at the top of every page. Emailing me directly from your personal email may end up caught in a SPAM filter somewhere. Use the form as I receive these messages.

Just like most of you I have a life and a family. Unfortunately, these things take priority over my part-time hobby business. My plans business is something I do on the side for enjoyment and wanting to help others build, it is not my full-time job. I will try to answer your emails as soon as possible but sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day so please be patient.

Also, sometimes emails get stuck in SPAM filters. If you have not received a response try emailing me from another email address.

Ordering (3)

I want to save you as much money as possible, so in order to do this I will pack multiple items in one box and select the best shipping method. I want you to get the best value for your money.

Plans and accessories are shipped separately and will arrive at different times. An order for plans and accessories is considered two orders as they are shipped from different locations.

Plans are run and sent when an order is received. It normally takes 2-3 days from receipt of order to get them in the mail. Plans are sent rolled in a mailing tube. Allow another week, within the continental United State for delivery. Plans sent overseas may take as long as 30 days to arrive to the customer.

Canopies are normally kept in stock and shipping time are similar to the plans.

Fiberglass parts are made to order. It may take 3-4 weeks for the fabricator to make your part depending on his workload. If you live in the United State he will send it directly to you. If you live overseas, he will send it to me, and I will then send it to you.

Unfortunately, we have to process orders from outside the US manually, so it is best to either contact us via our contact us form or order from one of our agents listed on vendor page.

Plan building is a bit different from building a kit that gives you step by step instructions. The goal of the plan is simply to allow you to build an accurate shape and flyable model that YOU “tweak” here and there. To plan build you need a few “kits” (not ARF’s) under your belt so you understand the basic building process. Once you understand this, there is really nothing harder about building from plans than a kit. If you need help you can visit a great website like RCSCALEBUILDER.COM for assistance from other modelers.
