20" KK CHAMP
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. Precision laser-cut, with all parts pre-formed, that will get 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.

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
