    Description:

    Trexler size 6 pneumatic latex balloon wheels.  Product Inflates 2-1/2 to 2-5/8 in. diameter, sold in pairs, and are suitable for free flight and light weight models with a maximum airframe weight of 10 oz.  Made right here in U.S.A. just like they always have been!

    Trexler do's and don'ts:

    DO NOT -  Inflate using your mounth.  Moisture from your lungs/mouth will cause the valve stem to seal rendering the product useless.

    DO NOT -  Leave inflated while in storage, again the valve stem may seal due to moisture within the tire.

    DO NOT - Over-inflate tire with pump as tire will rupture or blister.  Trexler wheels (#1-#6) are best inflated using a glue syringe.

    DO NOT - Disount tire from wooden hub as you might damage or puncture the tire.

    DO NOT - Use on models heavier than specified by Trexler.

    DO - Store in a cool, dry, dark place.

    DO - Inflate tires prior to use using the Trexler inflator or large capacity syringe.

    DO - Deflate tire after each flying session and leave the valve stems open.

    DO - Adhere to the suggested carrying capacity of the tires when sizing to fit your model.

FREDe was my first Stevens Aero. purchase and I've been hooked ever since! The kit was an absolute blast to build, just like a giant 3D puzzle (except the parts fit together nicely!). I've been flying mine for 3 years now and he has never once disappointed. It is such a lovely experience to fly a FREDe in the circuit at a RC rally or buzz up and down at the local paddock. Fred has featured in the New Zealand 'Model Flyers World' magazine and you can see why, everyone just loves it when Fred is about!
So grab a FREDe 300 and enjoy flying again! I've been looking, with wide eyes and drooling, at the 2X Fred for a while now, if its anything like the 300 it must be just brilliant!

This is more than just an interesting airplane. The kit is superb with all the pieces fitting beautifully and the finished model turning heads with both its looks and performance. It's fun to build and fly.

This was my first laser kit, everything fit well and the balsa was very well chosen(I design and build my own flying things, I know good balsa when I see it).
K. Walker
I received the FREDe kit and covering in the mail yesterday in good shape. Having looked through the kit contents and "digested" the instruction manual, I must say that I'm impressed! Easily the best overall quality of any kit of its type I've seen to date. I'm also impressed that there are only a few pieces of non-laser-cut wood in the kit (wing turbulator spars and LE), with even the entire tail surfaces built up out of ALL laser-cut parts.
