Product Details


The KK Champ is a very simple, quick to build, surprisingly robust control line trainer for 0.75 - 1cc (.049 - .06 cu.in) diesel or glow-plug motors such as the ED Bee and PAW 06.

Precision laser-cut parts will have you flying in only a few hours.

A real classic, which has stood the test of time and will get you through the early stages of learning to fly control line.


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Champ. The KK Champ is a pre-fabricated control-liner and was originally intended for the ED Bee, d. c. Spitfire or Mills 0.75 diesel motors, which all featured integral fuel tanks. The motor mount has been redesigned to fit the popular and very suitable PAW 06 (1cc) diesel motor but is suitable for other engines too.

Models shown above, expertly built and photographed by Brian Lever and Steve Hailes, feature decals, paints, motor and propeller not included in the kit. Brian has also provided some tips for trimming and flying the Champ that are included in the kit.

Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.

We are in the middle of nowhere and so our Royal Mail collection is at around 1pm.


An order placed before 12pm on Monday should be with you on Wednesday.

An order placed after 12pm on Monday should be with you on Thursday.

For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.


An order placed before 10am on Monday should be with you on Tuesday.

An order placed after 10am on Monday should be with you on Wednesday.

For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.

Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Next Working Day.


Royal Mail considers Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands and UK Islands as part of the UK and so does not charge a premium for deliveries.

Pretty much all other UK couriers have surcharges for deliveries to the following postcodes: IV, HS, KA27-28, KW, PA20-49, PA60-78, PH17-26, PH30-44, PH49-50, ZE, BT, IM, TR21-25

If you live in one of these postcodes and the parcel size of your order is outside Royal Mail's dimensions, you will have to pay a surcharge.

Our system is not clever enough to work this out and so if your order attracts a surcharge, we will contact you before despatch to see if you would like to pay the surcharge and proceed with the order or cancel and receive a full refund.



Smaller items

Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.

For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.

A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.

The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.

Larger items

For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.

These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.

For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!

This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.

I built a kk champ my first control line model when I was13 in 1965 I also got a Davis Charlton .75 quick start engine learnt to fly it second go what's special is I've still got it and it still works I've got lots of other models and engines from that time in the loft but it's time to let them go the champ was the most fun so not bad value for 4quid
