The kit includes all the wood, the wire landing axle and pre-formed tail spring, bamboo wing-hold dowels, transparent iron-on film for the windows, and highly-detailed 3-page plans, and the To Build a Bee instruction book. The plans have templates for all the parts, even the covering. The kits and their instructions have gone thru a long evolution of improvements based on the constructive criticism, ideas and suggestions from many of the modelers who have built it. I have been told many times that it is a pleasure to build.If you have any questions, please contact me. The Lazy Bee is a versatile slow flyer for pilots of all skill levels. It has almost magical flying ability.
Modelers from beginner to expert have enjoyed flying it. It performs very short take offs and landings.
The sprung landing gear allows it to fly from very rough runways. It's oversize control surfaces and lightly loaded wing give it extreme maneuverability.It can be set up to be docile and relaxing, or very responsive and sensitive. It works well with a huge range of electric and combustion power plants. The plane can be set up as a super light, super slow flyer or as a highly overpowered hot rod or anywhere between the two extremes. It has flown with all types of electric motors. It flies well using low power systems with power ratings as low as around 75 watts, or more powerful motor systems up to 20 or so ounces for the combined weight of the motor, speed control and battery pack. Using combustion power it is light enough to fly on low powered fuel-endurance. 049s, but strong enough to handle power plants as big as. 30 size glows, diesels and four strokes. It has been used as a basic trainer as well as a 3d trainer. Its airframe is super light in weight and yet exceedingly strong. The Bee is quite durable.
Its also easy to repair. The wing, motor, and tail are mounted with rubber bands (bolt-on wing is an option).
