Default Old Timer ARF?

Well, I found a couple more OT's, in an unlikely place; NorthEast Sailplanes. Yes, we know this company for their extensive line of ARF Gliders, E-Gliders, Aerobatic models and Trainers. But they recently added one OT ARF (in two versions) and an OT Kit, that's right, unbuilt, or as some like to say, a box of sticks!
The ARF is the Coronet 400, the "scale" version is a balsa rendition with polyhedral, built and covered in transparent iron-on. It has a 53.5" W.S., Wing area 464 sq/in, weight 23 oz, wing loading 7.2 oz/ft, with a flat-bottom wing airfoil. It's listed as using a "Speed 400" motor (not included) but I'll bet few are flown with that powerplant! Price $ 159.95.
NES also sell a Coronet Acro version, this has a flat (no dihedral) wing of 56" span, 518 sq/in, weight 25 oz for a 7.0 oz/ft loading. Flat bottom airfoil, suggested power is a geared or brushless 400. Price $ 149.95.
Now we come to the kit. The model is a remake of the well-known Cleveland Kit model the Li'l Viking. Wingspan 50", Wing area 315 sq/in, weight 18 oz, wing loading 8.2 oz/ft, airfoil "undercambered" and is designed for a "Speed" 400. It may also be flown with a 1/2A glow motor and is SAM-Legal for 1/2A Texaco competition. The wood is laser-cut, it comes with hardware and both (laser-cut) electric motor mount and Cox motor mount, sponge wheels. Price $ 59.95

That Coronet is a sweet looking bird. The Viking is a Spirit of Yesteryear kit. Both are pretty birds IMHO.

Another place to go looking is BMJR Models. (www.bmjrmodels.com)

He has many of the SOY kits in stock as well as some nice, albeit not OT, kits of his own.
