SLO ZAP CA Is called a thick formula. The thicker the formula, the slower the cure time, that’s why we call it SLO ZAP. Although it is thick it is still a liquid and will flow. Penetration into porous materials is very minimal. SLO ZAP is an excellent gap filler and provides extra time when positioning wood parts. In modeling its ideal for laminating wood parts and forming fillets. Because its thick, it will not run, it forms a very clean even fillet around all types of joints. The high cured strength means it works great on higher stress areas.
VERY HIGH VISCOSITY FORMULA
SUPER THICK AND SUPER STRONG
ALLOWS PART POSITIONING FOR APPROXIMATELY 30 TO 40 SECONDS

Extend the functionality of your SkyBuggy to include water sorties! Laser cut float kit designed exclusively for the Stevens AeroModel SkyBuggy (S300). Float kit includes all laser cut parts, pre-bent struts, mounting hardware, and photo illustrated build manual.
Very nice and fun build. Super cool looking little bird... I decided to give it a try with a little dihedral. Now...wow, what a joy! Super fun, even rolls nicely. Can be manhandled into small areas, tight turns with full control. My suggestion to other flyers: try a little dihedral, and you'll have one of the best flying parkflyers around.

This is an excellent kit. The laser cutting is the best I have ever seen. The parts fit together very smoothly. I was able to frame up all the pats in one evening. The instructions are also excellent and have pictures for each step. This kit comes with everything except Tx/Rx, servos, esc, motor, covering and tires. They include all other small bits and pieces down to magnets for the hatch, ez connectors, control horns and everything else needed to get it flyingIf this is an example of the kits, I see myself ordering many more from StevensAero.
I give this a solid 10 out of 10.
Rene Wallage (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Great and very complete kit with excellent instructions! A very relaxing build, followed by a very relaxing maiden flight. Highly recommended. The build can be done by an absolute beginner.
My next kit will very likely be another Stevens AeroModel...
I really like your website! I have enjoyed all of the models I have gotten thus far. The LiddleRod is a great model, sporty and fun to fly, and the QuickOats 100 was great, more fun than I expected!
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!!!
