My Fourth Space Kit - The Imperial Star Destroyer!
There is literally nothing cooler on the planet than seeing the ISD fly by. I built my first Star Destroyer several years ago and I was amazed at how cool it looked. This design is the one that had the most people build from my original plans. It was a cool plane and looked great but it was not very scale. So in the summer of 2011 I decided to redesign the ISD to make it more scale and to improve a few things that i didn't like about my original design.
The plane uses a 3 channel system with Elevons and Throttle so any 3 channel or higher radio will work with a Delta Wing mix capability. It is fully aerobatic and with the recommended power system it can go vertical right into space... just like all my other planes :)

Here is a video of the Prototype Maiden Flight.
I am offering this plane as a CNC Cut Foam kit out of the White Model Plane Foam. There is a very detailed build guide that comes with the kit that explains every step of the build in detail including pictures that show the progress.
The kit goes together very easily with as there are not very many pieces to the kit. You will need to provide all of the build hardware: Carbon Tubing, Carbon Flats, Gorilla Glue, and Pushrod wire.
The recommended hardware uses the very popular and low cost Brushless Motor, 1300mah to 1800mah 11.1v 3s Lipo Battery and 9g Hextronic Servos.
The build guide provides links for all hardware that is needed.
I am now offering this kit with custom designed printed skins - Ready for applying! The skins are printed on tissue paper and designed to be applied with the "decoupage" method. This makes a beautiful highly detailed plane that has a nice glossy finish.
Full Skin Set will make this thing an amazing looking plane.
