The HeliumMG represents our efforts to modernize the vintage motorized
glider platform that gave many of us our first taste of powered RC
flight. The Helium 2MG is a piece o'cake to build thanks to thoughtful
design and interlocking precision laser cut components. This stable,
predictable, featherweight (22-26oz Flying weight) glider sports a
cavernous fuselage which makes it ideal for outfitting with various
photography and FPV gear. Portability and flying site adaptability was
a high priority when designing the HeliumMG as such we've designed the
HeliumMG with 3 peice wing and given the fuselage a removable
horizontal stabilizer to allow it to pack down flat making it an ideal
travel plane. Shock mounted landing gear protect the underbelly of the
HeliumMG from the ever-present rocks and scrub found at un-improved
2 Meter span Rudder, Elevator, Throttle control motor glider with optional Spoiler
Easy access to cavernous equipment and battery compartments
Simple interlocking precision laser cut components and rapid assembly with CA glue
Beginner friendly modified S7055 airfoil keeps speed in check without sacrificing penetration
Ultralight flying weight assures success even on light lift days.
Carbon fiber reinforced spar and flat center section build strong
and allow the Helium to carry FPV and aerial photography payloads with
Optional barn door spoiler allows for operation from small fields with confidence.
Optional rubber-band on wing (cannot be used with spoiler) allows the Helium to function as a primary motor glider trainer.
Easy to transport 3 piece wing assembles/disassembles in minutes at the field
Removable horizontal stabilizer allows fuselage to pack flat for transport
Shock mounted, removable landing gear

Outstanding! I just finished the Fokker D7 and gave it a test flight. I had not worked with balsa since I was a kid(too many years ago). Yours is the best kit I have ever seen. I purposely took my time because it was so enjoyable and I especially ...

I can't believe the quality of your kits! I've been building models since the early 50's and have never had the pleasure of something as enjoyable as your S-POU kit. The parts fit is astounding, the plans are first class and the engineering is a...

Been building balsa kits for 68 years and your FredE and Sky Buggy are the greatest, most fun to build kits I have ever built.

Hello, I am writing to let you know that my Water Board is the coolest thing ever. I would also like to thank you for getting it to me before the holiday weekend like I asked.

I built balsa planes from kits when I was a lot younger (Keil Kraft kits at the time) and I recently got back to building. I'm on my third Stevensaero kits, just completing the Archaeopteryx and have already ordered my next. The kits are of very h...

I bought a helium a year ago built this plane and flew it for about a year and love it. It was fun building this plane and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to build an fly it has been fun.

I recently aquired the FREDe2X kit and have just finished building it. It was an excelent and well enginered kit and I really enjoyed building it.

I have been trading your (micro) kits to a young man (12 years old) for yard work. I think I've created a new model builder !!! He loves it. Another friend, who only flew 3/D worked together with me building your "Helium MG2" glider. We couldn...

You guys are to be congratulated on the quality of your kits - outstanding!
— Gary McCord
I completed the Baby Ace and went straight on to the 1911 Caudron. These have been the best kits I have ever built. Absolutely loving the builds. I took a leap of faith based on your feedback page and bought 4 kits. I am about to start the Fokker ...
