Sure the Cutie will do some basic aerobatics, but that isn't the point of the Cutie. It
was designed so you could taxi out, start a takeoff roll, lift the tail, and do a
smooth climb out. Play with the breeze and the clouds, do touch and goes, and nice
smooth landings. Help someone to learn how to fly or just sit back and watch the
silhouette of the Cutie against the sky. This is what flying used to be all about.
If you're an old time flier, you'll love
the Cutie. If you've never built a model airplane before, the Cutie is for
you. Besides the computerized design, CAD engineering and MicroLaser cut
parts that make the Cutie practically fall together, the Cutie
comes with a 104 page instruction manual that not only covers the Cutie's
construction, but also its covering, power system installation, radio
system installation, and flying.
- "I just
had to write to say what a joy this kit is to build and fly. The
quality of the kit is SUPERB, and COMPLETE. The instruction manual is
very well written. There are little "notes" included that
show Larry has made a mistake or two in his building career, but has
learned well and is willing to pass his knowledge on to us. Don't let
the 104 page manual scare you; I followed EACH step carefully and
completed the plane in 26 hours, including covering and radio
installation, ready to fly! They sure came through with a great kit
again. The first flight was a true joy. I couldn't resist and started
to put it through the basic maneuvers including loops, barrel rolls
left and right, wing overs, spins and finally short, level inverted
flight. The next 5 flights were as pleasant as the first, and the
aircraft required NO trim adjustments, truly a great flyer right of
the bench. I flew again tonight and put it through all those basic
maneuvers and then, I shot touch and goes, and that on a grass field.
New flyers or old timers can enjoy the very pleasant flight
characteristics of this great plane. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it
a 10 plus 4 stars. Flight times were between 7 and 9 minutes,
depending on the wind speed." John "Jay" Hudak

You can't go wrong with Ultracote. It's easy to work with and looks great.
It will only take one roll to cover your Cutie. We stock all of the popular colors. Black & White 1" checkerboard Ultracote is $25.95
A 5/64 Allen Wrench will work fine with the socket head screws, but a
Ball Driver makes it soooo much easier!
