I am a disabled veteran with limited mobility. I have been building balsa wood models for years, Guillows in particular. I read about Stevens AeroModel in one of the RC forums. So I found a hobby shop about 60 miles from me that had your products and bought one, in particular the Taylorcraft with “Duane Cole” on the side. It has always been my dream to build a balsa wood model and then convert it to an RC plane and fly it. I have tried with no success with the Guillows models to convert them to RC.
I have been working on the Taylorcraft for about three weeks now a few hours a day taking my time on ever aspect of the model and now I am almost done I have all of the electric parts ready. This has been One of the most gratifying and fun projects I have ever done in my life. The sense of accomplishment I am getting from this is beyond words. I even subscribed to the Balsa Builder Magazine and just received my first copy and it even came with plans to build a model, The Squirt and SportStik. I am excited to finish my Taylorcraft in the next couple days and I am even more excited to buy a new kit and start a new project.
I am so satisfied and fulfilled building your models I just had to tell you how I felt. Thank you guys, you have literally changed my life for the better!! I will let you know how my next build goes, which ever beautiful kit I start next.
