Featuring laser cut fins, water slide
decals, 24mm power and a unique look all her own, the Morning Star
has that retro feel with a modern look!
Other features that enhance her appearance
are the 5 forward swept fins, the use of toothpicks to enhance the
fin-tips, the merging of the strakes into the shroud adapter and
her large size.
Commemorating the 6th anniversary of
the beginning of FlisKits, the Morning Star is a proud addition to
our fleet and is sure to be for your fleet as well.
The Morning Star began as a small
(12") tall model that Jim first designed and flew in the
1980's. When preparing to kit this design changes were
to the body tube lengths to make us of existing FlisKits
inventory. After a proto type was built it was suggested
that a 24mm version may be a more exciting version of the kit.
With that in mind, we built a second
proto type up scaling the model to take a 24mm motor. We
then flew both versions at a recent club launch and let our fellow
club members vote on which version they preferred.
The 24mm version you see here won
overwhelmingly and that is what lead to the final version of this
