The H-King range of Glue-N-Go foamboard kits makes for flying fun with a huge range of different planes (and other flying objects). They are easy to assemble, easy to fly and exceptional value!
If you prefer flying off snow or water than the Arctic Cat Water Plane is an easy to build plane for you. This great looking plane has a large wing area making it a very stable flier with the ability to glide in for an easy landing.
The Arctic Cat is made from foamboard and it has been laser cut for precision assembly and is supplied with carbon fiber reinforcing, metal push rods and a plastic motor mount. All it requires is a 2212 to 2216 (2200 to 2400KV) brushless motor, 40A ESC, 6” propeller, 9g servos and 1800 to 2200mAh 3S lipo battery. This is a great scale looking plane.
You’ll have heaps of fun flying off snow or water (or even grass) with this unique plane.

After a few weeks of flying all I can say is... This is the most fun I had with airplane after a long time! Solved some problems with CG and aileron trim and now I have the most awesome plane.
At the beginning I was a little disappointed with the first impression of airplane. But now I wouldn't trade it for any other.
Today I had a fun flight with a colleague. He got me a little distracted and I lost sight of airplane which resulted in nose dive with full throttle. Got me scared there for a few minutes and I my mind I was already ordering a new one. To my surprise the plane was there like nothing happened. Only the battery was pushed all the way in the nose, but nothing else so I was back in the air in a few seconds.
In conclusion this is an awesome plane that you just really must have.
But be advised if you buy it... You probably won't have any more time for other planes.
Happy flying!Nice looking airplane with some problems.
Pictures in instruction manual are bad quality and size of pictures is too small which means a lot of guessing. But on the plus side the plane can be built with mostly hot glue gun and foam safe CA glue. A big issue is with control surfaces which in my case were all partly separated form wing / elevator and during the build they got completely separated. Unfortunately due to the smooth surface I could not use tape like on most of my planes. So I had to install them on plastic hinges. And I still don't know how are you supposed to assemble rudder on vertical tail with only parts that are in the box?!
Today I had my test flight... They say any test flight is a success if you can walk away from it. Had some problems with plane being nose heavy, though the CG was spot on. I have noticed that the airplane needs a lot of elevator and is very sensitive on ailerons. Unfortunately the flight ended nose down in a field of turnip near me. During a straight flight with app 70% throttle the plane rolled on side, for no apparent reason and went straight to the ground. To my surprise there was no bigger damage, just some glue separations of parts... so thumbs up for a weary durable plane.
In conclusion - not for beginners and be prepared to improvise with some parts, but you will get a very nice plane.
