Were bringing back the model that started K&A Models 30 years ago.  The Mini-1 which many will remember is a very fast an agile plane that is fully aerobatic.  The light wing loading allows you to fly on even the smallest of slopes. The Mini-1 is right at home in winds as light as 10 mph or as strong as 30 + mph.  The Mini-1 makes for an ideal compact sloper.  Small in size but big on performance.   Requires two channel radio with 3 micro servos such as HS-55's and a mini receiver. Kit comes complete with pre-straight edged wing sheeting keeping the building process quick. We have included top harware with the kit, 1/2A nylon control horns, EZ connectors for control horn connections along with CA hinges and music wire for the pushrod setups. There is also instructions to add an optional canopy hatch much like our fiberglass version of the Mini-1. We have updated the ailerons using two independent aileron servos instead of the original one servo setup. We have hotwired the aileron servo bays and servo leads in the foam cores for you.

K&A Models is proud to bring you their new PHOENIX fast build kit for the slope enthusiast.  We designed the PHOENIX with the wing mounted midway on the fuselage and a full flying stab.  This makes the PHOENIX less susceptible to wing or stabilizer damage for those landing sites that are not so ideal.  The PHOENIX is very stable in flight and can perform nice clean aerobatic maneuvers with the best of them.  This airframe is also very comfortable flying inverted.  All of the main components are hollow molded fiberglass and are pre-painted for you.  Just a few simple steps, apply your favorite trim colors and your ready to go fly in just a few hours.  The light wing loading allows you to fly on even the smallest of slopes. The PHOENIX can perform in winds as light as 10 mph or as strong as 30 mph.  The separate fiberglass canopy allows easy excess to your radio gear. The PHOENIX makes for an ideal compact sloper.   Requires a two channel radio with 3 micro servos such as HS-56's and a mini receiver.

K&A Models brings you the new IMPULSE slope glider. The IMPULSE was designed to appeal to both the sport flier as well as the high performance fliers.  With no ballast the IMPULSE is very comfortable flying at those light lift inland sites.  Once loaded up watch out!  The IMPULSE is no slouch for speed and maneuverability.  This plane loses very little energy throughout maneuvers.  The IMPULSE performs aerobatic maneuver with ease and is very comfortable in inverted flight with little pressure on the stick to maintain level flight.  If your in the market for a mid sized sloper that can be flown not only in light lift conditions but 25+ mph winds then the IMPULSE might just be your ticket.  Give the IMPULSE a try, it will most likely become one of your favorites to fly. Requires two channel radio with 3 micro servos such as HS-56 and mini receiver.
