We are about to release a newly designed, radio controlled 50" Minimoa to replace this replica of the KeilKraft original.
The new kit is inspired by the old kit, but has no common parts.
If you are a member of the Vintage Glider club and want to build the old model as part of the club competition this year, please contact us by email or phone and we will try to get a kit out to you.
The KK Minimoa is a stunningly beautiful scale model of the truly classic gull wing sailplane.
Not a beginner's model, but would be a great vintage project for the more experienced builder.
An excellent flyer, our replica kit features top quality laser-cut parts to aid accurate, speedy construction.
The model can be launched by tow line or bungee rig and could be converted to two channel, lightweight R/C.
This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK model of a Minimoa glider.
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.
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.
