This a great little item. Sanding block is made from very high density foam and features fine 240 and extrafine 120 grit papers. This block won't deform and cause waves in your project like those cheap hardware store sanding sponges.
Greetings all, I wanted to tell you all that we really like the A.R. My firend built his very similar to the stated design with a 5800 KVA inrunner. I put a small 2100 kva outrunner on mine that turns a 5x3 prop. They seem to have just about the same amout of speed and authority. Fantastic design and really fun to fly.
I'm the friend Randy mentioned. I first bought the AR as a home for an unused GWS brushed motor that came out of my Pico Stik. It flew great on that motor, but I wanted to see what it could do with a brushless. I bought a Feigao 1208425L, running a 450mAh 7.4 lipo, a 6 amp speed controller, and either a GWS 3x2 or 3x3 prop. It's an absolute blast to fly. Above combination seems perfectly matched, and I get about 4 minutes of pure fun.
I don't now Randy or Frank but I love this plane. Setup w/ Medusa 5300kva, tbird 9, 11.1v 700mah lipo, GWS 3*3, I'm not sure if I'm hitting 85mph, but it's rock solid and really fast. Sounds like a turbocharged mosquito buzzing the field! Now I just need to get braver and keep it on the deck.
Great little plane, and fun to build for me who has only built foamies and ARF's. My setup is a Turnigy 1230 4500 kv motor with 3x2 prop, 6A esc , HXT500 servos and 3 cell Nano 450. Setup worked great, allthough I didnt break any speed records with it.
I recieved one of your kits wanting to get into building them and i was amazed!!! It was so easy to assemble and is a great looking plane!! I liked it so much that i have already ordered another one!!!

Some of the best plan details I have seen with clear instructions. The laser cut balsa is a dream to work with as the parts fits perfectly with no adjustments needed. (I remember the balsa kits I worked with in my younger days with pins and glu...

I LOVE your site, as well as the quality, attention to detail and passion that you put into all of your products and kits. You are lightyears ahead of everyone else in this niche and are the reason I got back into building! Thank you!
Whether is shredding up the skies with the G480 or floating around at sunset with the Toon Rocketeer, Bill's kits are the most satisfying kits to build and fly. Keep up the great work!
— Scott Stevens
I finished building the Fly Baby, only thing I need is the radio block. This was another enjoyable kit to build, ...and am thinking about picking up another kit to start on. Good job guys, keep up the good work.

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 bought a SHAFT 400 and had a great time building it. Flying it for about a year… Lots of fun. Great plane. Love it!

I have built everything from the catapult launched ThunderChuck to the Pterodactyl and Frede 2X and in every case find the same commitment to quality, performance and customer satisfaction. Stevens provides the highest value for money, best mater...

I love your models. In 2015, I have built and flown your 1911 Caudron, and am currently finishing the build of your Shaft 400. I purchased your Fullhouse for my winter project and was surprised to find your logo ball cap in the box. THANKS! It’s...

I have to say that the MBP program is one of the best hobby investments I have made.
