Finally, I can release two new NoCal kits that I’ve been working on. As you might know, one of my “production requirements” is that the design must prove to be fly-able. This is a carry-over from my days of selling plans – nothing gets sold if it can’t fly.
Within the last month, we have been able to test and fly these two NoCals: The Cessna Centurion and the Aircraft Designs Turbo Stallion. When I look for a subject for NoCal, I look for a few things and some of these are: High Wing (for stability), Retract Landing Gear, and no Wing Struts (both for simplicity and weight savings).
Both the Centurion and the Turbo Stallion meet these requirements. I’ve designed laser-cut parts for all of the “curvy” parts. This leads to rapid construction. And both kits have proven to be stable fliers. They are designed for Outdoor flying – that is, they should be strong enough to take out into a little bit of a breeze.
They are $10 each; you get full sized plans, a laser cut parts sheet, and you can find them in the Basement.
