It's back from the 1960's! The Skinny Bee was a popular New Zealand design, a 3 channel aircraft, promoted as "A top contest flyer yet suitable as a trainer". It was New Zealand's answer to the Ugly Stik - A tough Sunday flyer that you could bring out for some fun any time, and keep it together with number 8 fencing wire & duct tape.

So we're bringing the Skinny Bee back with modern materials and laser cut precision. The Skinny Bee 48" is a complete wood kit, so all wood components are included to complete the build.

The only items required to complete the build is a length of 10 SWG Music Wire (K&S 3/32" #506), a pair of 2 1/2" wheels, control hinges & pushrods, motor mount & some fibreglass cloth for the wing joint.

We do production runs daily, so any kitset will generally ship within 1 to 2 working days. We ship locally or worldwide, with worldwide delivery generally between 7 to 21 days. All pricing on this web site is in New Zealand dollars.

If you are visiting from overseas see our International Web Site for pricing in US Dollars & other currencies with swift worldwide shipping options.
