Love the SAABs! Hey, photo request: anyone built both versions of the Phoenix? 2.6 and 1.6? just want to see the size comparison. Thanks!I have flown the Krypton on an SU E30-4, straight as an arrow, good deployment and landed with just a little ding on the nose cone point. The other kits are still being finished up and waiting for good weather to fly. These kits are easy to build and inexpensive. I have built them stock - boring - but they are light, strong and stable. Those witch hats roll to such a sharp point they will put your eye out. All you need is a dowel, mousepad, patience and my method of moistening the paper by simply breathing on it - a porn method but it works. A bit of squadron putty on the nosecone is all the filler I used. Laminate the balsa fins with lable paper and they are plenty strong. Wick in some CA on the boat tails, sand and 2 coats of primer are all that are needed. Easy paint schemes with lots of vinyl tape and letters and you can really crank these kits out.
