FAI Competition Starter Set


This kit is an entry-level kit to allow you to compete in parachute, streamer, and helicopter duration flying under FAI rules.  FAI rules for duration events such as parachute, streamer, and helicopter duration are different than NAR rules in that the airframe has specifications for length and diameter.  The SK 369 is designed to meet these specifications.  It can be used for S3A (A parachute duration), S6A (A streamer duration), and S9A (A helicopter duration) events flow with 13mm Estes motors.  The airframes are made from cardstock and standard body tubes and are prefabricated.  Fins are laser cut from 1/16" balsa and only require sanding and attachment to the airframe with adhesive.  Use of our FAI Fin Jig to do this is highly recommended.  A vacu-formed nose cone, ejection plug, and Kevlar shock cord are included.  No recovery system is supplied.  No finishing is required.  The completed kit without motors or recovery system weighs 12 gm. The FAI Fin Jig is an inexpensive but efficient tool to aid with building the SK369 FAI Competition Model Kit. It allows you to attach three fins that are 1/16" thick on a BT-5 body tube. It also provides for an offset of the fins from the end of the body tube to allow for motors to be taped to the tube. It is 3D printed with the same smooth finish material that we use for our scale parts. 

This starter set contains two SK369 kits and one FAI Fin Jig.
