All laser cut Deluxe kit for a great building experience and perfect results
Not all laser cut kits are created equal, some only have the ribs laser cut and that's it. Some have a few of the more complex outlines pre-cut. The Deluxe Telemaster 40 ALL Laser Cut Kit brings kit building to a completely new level of ease and precision. Just about every piece is precision laser cut and ready to assemble, every part fits the first time without modification. A unique parts alignment pin system is provided to assure perfect part orientation and to speed the assembly.
The fuselage is entirely pre-cut and is of tab-and-notch design, making it nearly impossible to build a warped or twisted fuselage. Kit includes a universal motor mount that accepts most any appropriate outrunner motor. A .40-.46 glow motor can also be used with the addition of a motor mount. There is a large hatch on the top of the fuselage to access the battery/fuel tank. Options abound, you can build your Telemaster 40 with conventional tail wheel orientation or build it as a tricycle gear airplane, even the option of building the airplane for float operation is covered in the instructions. An optional float kit is available (TEL1425).
The wings are assembled over the full size plans with the pre-cut ribs dropping into place on the pre-notched spar, the sub-leading edge and sub-trailing edge are pre-notched for perfect alignment to the ribs. Even the premium quality balsa sheeting is pre-cut to shape and ready to glue in place. The wing design includes flaps and ailerons and is set up for standard size servos that install directly in the wings. The wing design is one piece that bolts in place on the fuselage, gone are the days of installing the wing with rubber bands.
The horizontal and vertical tail builds very quickly and is designed as a bolt in place unit, removable for easy transport.
Every laser cut part is part numbered and the complete photo illustrated step-by-step instruction manual leads even the novice builder through the process in a clear and precise manner. It has never been easier to achieve professional results in the building of a wooden aircraft kit. Each kit includes one full laser cut kit, full size plans, photo-illustrated instructions, aluminum main landing gear, hinges, pushrods, hardware. For the tricycle version you will need DUB153 nosegear and DUB614 axel. To fly the Telemaster off water the TEL1425.
and the New Telemaster 40 Kit V2
. Because of the broad range of building talent within our customer base, we created three different levels of the Telemaster 40 kit.
The Deluxe Kit
is ALL laser cut and designed for modelers that may have limited building experience as well as those with a lot of experience. This particular design and building approach is not possible to duplicate in conventional construction. We have taken the precision that is possible in laser cutting and used it throughout the kit, even the wing sheeting is pre-cut to shape and size. The fuselage construction incorporates tab-and-notch construction that makes it nearly impossible to build a twisted or banana shaped fuselage.
The Telemaster 40 Kit V2
is the more conventional version and is closer to the original Tele 40 stick built kit while improving it greatly with a lot of precision laser cut parts to speed the assembly and improve the end results. The wing and stab ribs as well as the front fuselage are laser cut as are the fuselage formers, firewall, hatch and motor mount. These parts make this kit a much easier to build project than the earlier kit, but at a higher cost. This version of the Telemaster 40 will build into a lighter version than the Deluxe kit due to the balsa stick construction rather than the lite plywood construction of the Deluxe.
The Ribs and Plans Kit (TEL1499) is our final version for the very experienced builder, one that has a shop full of balsa sheet and sticks. This version is just the laser cut wing and stab ribs along with a new and updated set of plans. The modeler needs to provide all the rest of the parts. Many experienced builders still like to do a lot of the build themselves and really enjoy it. Many of them still would prefer to purchase a perfect set of wing and stab ribs than to cut them themselves. This is the kit for them.
Each of these options gives our customers the ability to choose and pick the option that best suits their interests and abilities. Perhaps one of these will work for you.
