FLYING ACES ELF

The Flying Aces Elf is a version of the KK Elf we have produced as a "special" for the Peterborough Flying Aces Nationals, taking place on Sunday 3rd  September 2017 at Ferry Meadows, Nene Park, Peterborough, PE2 5UU.

Identical to our standard KK Elf replica, this edition has parts cut from lightweight, graded balsa and includes a sheet of Esaki japanese tissue.

YOUR KIT

This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original Keil Kraft Elf.

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.

Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed".

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

KIT CONTENTS

Balsa wood sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood.
One 150mm diameter plastic propeller.
One pre-bent motor hook and shaft.
One low friction plastic nose bushing for the propeller
Pair of 22mm plastic wheels.
Acetate sheet for canopy.
Piano wire for the main undercarriage.

F.A.I. 3/16" rubber motor strip.
