KEIL KRAFT AJAX

The KK Ajax was one of Keil Kraft's earliest rubber powered kits, designed by Louis B Heath in 1939, and redesigned by Albert Hatfull c1946.

The Ajax featured in their kit line for so long as a direct result of it's fantastic flying and duration performance.

Traditionally built with simple construction, our replica features top quality precision laser cut parts to aid speedy and accurate building and makes an excellent beginner's first flying model.

Definitely one to add to your stick and tissue building bucket list!

More experienced builders can easily modify the Ajax to take a lightweight electric motor and 3 channel R/C equipment.

YOUR KIT

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

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. (Some modellers may prefer to use a mylar under-covering for strength and lightness).

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 traditional FAI flight rubber. 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.

The Ajax brings back memories of the fifties, as I have arthritis in the hands
the laser cut is a blessing.
Vintage models is a first class co.
