All New SkyFX Kits

#1
I figure this new product line needs its own thread. Very excited to see this coming to fruition.

This week we got a color profile dialed in and were able to ptint some test sheets. I could not be happier with the results.

Today, I did a quick assembly of the kit minus the electronics. We are very close, just need to make some tweaks to the print position.

Fully printed laser cut kits are hassle free, just assmble as you would a normal kit and you are done!!

No added weight, no handcutting of skins, no heavy spray glues. UV ink is water resistsnt so no need for applying waterproofing chemicals.

Here is a video of us doing our first run, some build pics and phots used for design..

These are now surely the perfect build it yourself RC kits. Hope someone stocks these in the UK - would love to build a few! Fantastic work - well done everyone involved.

Wow that looks beautiful! And no special coating required is awesome. Its a slower process than I pictured but 3 planes in 11 minutes aint bad. It beats the heck out of painting. 100x better "paint job" than anything I could do in a weeks time :D. Hard to imagine anything better than that!

The actual printing process when manufacturing will be very different. I haven't done the nesting yet, but we will most likely be able to do a dozen or more planes in the same amount of time.
