This is a stretched version o' t' FlisKits Thing-A-Ma-Jig. A simple, matey, easy quick build for beginners and educators. In fact, t' only kit simpler t' build is an RTF!
I didn't start this one out intendin' t' do a review on it, but after t' smoke cleared--pardon t' pun--I decided t' do a quick write up on it. I bought three of them from Jim at t' NERRF II launch because I wanted somethin' for me 12 year old daughter and 7 year old niece t' build together. Avast!
T' build went quickly. They were finished in about 45 minutes. Dad/Uncle Drake (that's me) wanted t' do somethin' different so I used a 32" tube for t' body rather than t' 16" tube supplied. Ahoy! Nay wantin' t' be outdone, the girls insisted on followin' suit. Luckily I had enough tubes t' go around.
T' interestin' thin' about this kit be t' way t' fins go together. Well, blow me down! They have laser cut slots and tabs formin' a triangular box put together like puzzle pieces. Begad! Their assembly is so intuitive that t' girls had them together without discussion.
Flight and Recovery:
We launched these several times on several motors rangin' from A8-3s t' C6-5s. Each flight was flawless, however, Dad's ended up in a pond after only two flights.
A simple, easy, me hearties, and quick build for beginners and educators. Well, blow me down! In fact, me bucko, t' only kit simpler t build is an RTF!
