PEL-AERO KITS (PETER LLOYD AUSTRALIA)

PERFORMANCE MODELS WITH THE WINNING EDGE

HIGH FLYER
Span 16" (40 cm), Length 16.3" (41.5 cm) - A no nonsense beginners model that requires the minimum of tools to complete. Preshaped components made from carefully Selected Contest Grade Balsa added to a minimum of supervision can create in 4 hours a fun flyer with contest capabilities. Suitable for school recreation activities or club fun days - £8.00 plus post.

WAMIRA 18 ver 3.1 (YOUNG EAGLE)
Span 18" (45 cm), Length 19.4" (49 cm) - Based on the former Australian record holders' model, this design (now with a carbon reinforced fuselage) allows the beginner to expand their building skills or for the experienced modeller a budget price contest model. It takes longer to build but the results are worth it. - £11.00 plus post.

EPSILON 21 ver 3.0
Span 21" (53 cm), Length 21.6" (54.8 cm) A "No holds barred" competition model designed for those finicky conditions when size matters! A fashionable 6 piece wing featuring built in wash-in for snappy launch recovery is added to a carbon/balsa composite fuselage and to bring your master piece back safely; full details to construct the "Broken Back" D/T system are provided. A perfect compliment to the Wamira. Not a beginner's kit. - £19.00 plus post.

KATAMAX 3.0
Span 18" (45 cm), Length 19.3" (49 cm). Created for the growing interest in catapult launched gliders, this kit has evolved to feature a "Pop-up" wing dethermaliser and introduces a carbon reinforced fuselage. This model allows you to discover the thrill of flying a hand launched glider without physical discomfort. As a potential contest winner, this design offers the best of two worlds. Not a beginner's kit. - £13.50 plus post.

POT SHOT
Span 16" (40.6 cm), length 18.8" (47.8cm). POTSHOT is a unique model, designed not only for the fast growing outdoor catapult launched glider scene, but for the use of carbon fibre as an integral part of its construction and a "Tip-up" wing D/T (the only kit available to offer these features). Reviewed in the June 2003 issue of MODEL FLYER and recommended for fun flying or competition you can become a "Hotshot" with a POTSHOT. Not a beginners kit. - £12.00 plus post.

ZEPHYR
Span 18.0" (45 cm), Length 15.75" (40 cm). Welcome to the fascinating world of Jetex/Jet-x powered Model Aircraft. These simple reusable solid fuel motors coupled with the ZEPHYR offers the avid sport flyer an exciting low cost introduction to rocket powered flight with the added bonus that the ZEPHYR can be built as a Catapult Launched Glider Created for those who prefer a more simplistic approach.

CUSTOM KITS
I am regularly asked what items do I need from the list to make a particular type of wing, fuselage or complete model. Please let me know your needs and I will see what I can suggest. We can discuss these needs and I can produce a customised package of parts. I have put together a package of items for both F1A and F1B flying surfaces see Custom Kits

LASER KTS
The laser cutting of parts in small volumes and to a high quality has now become a practical proposition. Leon Cole of BELAIR is now producing a range of kits that include a number of free flight models. See Laser Cut Kits of Parts for more details. Leon has kitted a number of models from plans in the Free Flight Supplies catalogue. Details of plans below. Others are in the pipeline.
