The average design time runs from 1500 HRS to 2500 HRS depending on the size and complexity. It will be estimated and half this estimate is required up front and the rest provide before the final plans are sent.

The price ranges from $1000.00USD to ±$2000.00, dependent on the size; single or multiple engined, and complexity. It gives the builder the right to build as many models as he desires, but not sell or give out the plans.

We try hard to incorporate any detail that would enhance your chances of having a truly exceptional giant scale R/C aircraft model by spending almost as much time data collecting as drafting. All products start with a 3/6-view drawings, done to scale, and every detail we can identify and accurately detail are shown. The plans do not include rivets and panel lines.

 

Hardware details are designed for the large scale R/C model are done as closely as possible to the real aircraft.
