F.R.O.G. TUTOR

The FROG Tutor was one of only three IC powered models still available from the company in 1960.

Designed for 0.8-1.0cc diesels (specifically the FROG 100 MKII and FROG '80'), the model was seen at the time as unnecessarily complicated to build but with a very strong airframe and great flier. Our replica kit has a few modifications to the original stamped wood for ease of build, but in most respects is a faithful copy. The kit does not include a motor or motor ancillaries.

The Tutor is an obvious candidate for conversion to electric RC.

YOUR KIT

This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original FROG Tutor. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing.

This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.

KIT CONTENTS

Pair of 1 1/2" plastic streamlined wheels.
Acetate sheet for cabin.

UK SHIPPING

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

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 Nest Working Day.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

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.
