No Ordinary Kit!

Sequoia brings engineering to r/c model aircraft construction kits - and not a little art as well! Materials are innovatively used to get the best from their intrinsic properties, made possible by using our own British made Sequoia high precision CNC router-millers.

The Sequoia FInch Kits are designed and manufactured in Britain as arguably the finest construction kits ever brought to market. A rapturous reception of the Greenfinch234 would indicate that many would agree that this has been achieved. The Goldfinch138 follows on from the Greenfinch234, and is a 38" span 'could-be-scale' mid 20th century two seater tourer/aerobatic trainer, for electric or i.c. power. The model follows many years of design and development, and expands on the experience of previous successful Finch kits since the mid 1990s. It offers an extremely special building experience, constantly rewarding the builder with a work of art that commands attention, a fine flying performance and intrinsic rugged durability.

Over 600 ultra high precision CNC machined components, (mostly high quality birch ply but also balsa, epoxy glass and aluminium), build into a self-jigging modular structure with the aid of comprehensive, beautifully laid out drawings and instruction manuals illustrated with hundreds of colour photographs.

The Goldfinch138 is aimed not only at the discerning flyer - handling sympathetically for conservative flying but responding well for experienced pilots - but also those who simply enjoy building and admiring a beautifully crafted and thoroughly engineered static model.

Special features include unique independently hinged and internally sprung u/c legs, plug-in but resiliently mounted wing panels, detailed cockpit including pilot's seat, scale hinged shrouded ailerons, all flying and control surfaces easily removable, a custom universal electric motor mount, and a convenient but precise CG balance system.

Each kit has a cockpit fitted serial number data plate and is supplied in a wood box complete with all parts and linkages, except covering, radio and power systems.
