The Phantom Mite is a smaller version of the classic KK Phantom for 0.75 - 1cc (.049 - .06cu.in) diesel and glow-plug motors.

Strong and dependable, with all laser-cut precision parts, making a quick to build trainer, that will stand up to plenty of hard flying.

Another KK classic, well suited to modern PAW diesel engines.


This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Phantom Mite.

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.


Full-sized plotted plans
Balsa wood and ply sheets with precision laser-cut parts
Engine bearers and balsa sheeting
Vacuum-formed canopy
Pair of 1 1/2" streamlined wheels
Piano Wire for undercarriage and lead outs
Bellcrank assembly
Cloth hinge material

I think the phantom Mite appeared around 1949, I know I built one in about 1950.
I believe it was a Keil Kraft Kit and came with sturdy balsa wings that needed shaping and a very strong fuselage.
I fitted a 1cc ED Bee Diesel. Unfortunately the power was down and the performance was poor. A glow engine would be better and engine mounts unnecessary if the engine could be mounted to the bulkhead. This would reduce the weight, but the bulkhead would need to be re-inforced.
I have just built another Phantom Mite and realised that it has a Spitfire profile, the Phantom merely being a larger version.
I think any undercarriage is undignified and just adds drag. The Phantom Mite makes a good first control line model because its strong and forgiving. It will need fuel-proofing but is well worth the effort. It is very easy to build and looks good in Black with Invasion strips


Thanks Philip - we'd love to see some pictures of your finished build!
