Default BlackStar TSTO kit options

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am trying to get a feel for just how many people would be interested in buying my BlackStar TSTO model if offered as a kit. The full build thread is posted here. Photos of the most likely configuration are attached below. It would be a single motor version of the prototype. Recommended motor: Aerotech F25-3W or 24mm Cesaroni F30-3.

Option 1 - Full Kit -

Everything needed to assemble a flight ready model.... except: Radio gear, batteries and motors.

Option 2 - Short Kit -

Plans, instructions on DVD, all vacu-molded parts and printed decals. Plus, hard to find or expensive materials (when ordered in small quantities). Examples would be small neodymium magnets, short pieces of graphite tube or rod, nitinol wire, rail buttons, parachutes, and small specialized hardware. There would be no balsa or depron foam sheet included.

Option 3 - Support only

Instructions on DVD plus e-mail tech support. Plans would be free, downloadable online. This is more of a license fee than anything else. No license no support.

Thanks for Playing


DJ Miller
