Ever since I took over this business in 2012, there has been a continual demand for the Blue Ridge Special. Why do people want them? Because they are quick to build and they fly like stink! You might have seen my recent video showing how high it climbs on minimal turns (I’ve posted the video at the bottom). Unfortunately, the most recent kit went out of production and I only ever sold a few, even though people wanted them.
This summer, I came to an agreement with the previous owner of the kit. I now have the rights to Phil Hartman’s Blue Ridge Special. I have developed a set of laser-cut pieces for the kit based on the work the past owners did. And I am happy to say I will be offering this plane in FULL kits and SHORT kits.
TODAY – the Short kit is available for purchase. The short kit contains the original plans, original notes, supplementary short kit notes, laser-cut wood, and two propellers. TWO propellers because, as I laid out the wood, I realized that I could supply enough material for TWO airplanes! The full kit will be the same way – enough for two planes.
In addition, since I know clubs want to buy several of these, I have built in a 10% discount for purchases of 10 or more. And – I can provide an additional discount for School Projects. (I am sending 10 short kits out to Maryland today for a school!)
You can find the Short Kit RIGHT HERE for $10. I will have the Full Kit available as soon as I get all of the material collected to start packaging. It will be $20 for the Full Kit (enough material for TWO planes).
P.S. this is now a Provisional One-Design Event in the Flying Aces Club (much like the Phantom Flash) and eligible for a Kanone!
