UPDATE! Due to health reasons, I have sold the rights and all production tooling for both the Telos and Crossbow kits to Michael Georgia in Southern California. I offered this package for sale on RcGroups and he was the only one willing to visit my Oregon shop to review production techniques. He stayed with us for almost a week where we layed up several fuselages and I instructed him on the many details I've used over the years like laying the glass at a 45 degree angle (triangulation for strength, and surface finish techniques. We also went over vacuum forming and feather cut foam wing cutting processes. I was impressed with his skills and attention to detail and his eagerness to reproduce the quality kits you have become used to from me. He can be reached at: email@example.com.
