Title says it all really...
 
I now they briefly reappeared a year or two back an then vanished again.
I had a Kadet and loved it.
 
I'd like to get hold of a Kloudrider plan if anyone has one I can beg steal or borrow to copy.

Thanks Andy
 
That address is a PO box from 5 years ago - long gone I'm afraid...
 
Someone must know what happened, or who owns the copyright now...

Hi Ben, I know what happened and I also now hold the copyright.
Kamco was owned by my father and due to a number of reasons had been in limbo for the last few years.
Sadly he passed away last year and it passed to me. I have taken this long to get round to doing anything with it.
I am currently going through everything to see what can be used and what needs doing as I plan to relaunch it.
I know I'm replying to an old thread, did you ever get hold of a kloudrider plan?

of course I will Andrew, There's a lot to go through before we can start getting kits out again, but we might be able to get some of the old plans out fairly soon.

It seemed such a shame to leave it laying there doing nothing, it was so much part of our lives when we were kids (holidays revolved around the shows!!!)

I for one would like to see Kamco resurrected. I still fly a Kloudrider which I've had for many years and would like to get hold of a plan as I got the model second hand. My favourite trainer model was the Kadett and I still have the plan for that somewhare as well as a plan for what I think was a Kavalier low wing model which I haven't yet got round to building. Must do it before I kick the bucket.

Well, I've just committed myself to making a go of this venture....just bought myself an A0 plotter!!

(the missus had a head-fit when I put it up in the middle of the living room to run off a test print smiley)

Good luck with the venture. Learned to fly back in 1975 on the Kadet in the UK and when we emigrated to South Africa we imported the Kossack Bipe, great plane with a .40 up front and the standard 10 x 6 prop. Still have the plan for that back home in SA, now reside in Dubai and would welcome the chance of flying the Kossack again.

Thank you smiley

I'm planning to bring back the kadet, Kavalier, Kloudrider and Kossack (I think that'll be more than enough to start with). Still lots to do, a lot of the old dyelines havn't aged well so I want to drag it all into the 21st century and get them put onto disc.

I also want to replace the old die-cuts with laser cut parts, so I've got lots of people to talk to yet.

Keep an eye on my website for updates...probably on here too.

BTW...I learnt to fly on a Kadet too!!

Yes, thanks for that Peter, I have seen that site before, he has the old Kadet and Kavalier plans on his files, He is one of the people on my list for getting them put onto disc for me. I have to contact him anyway to let him know we're back.

Hi Kamco Kid...Can you post a link to your website please.......and just a thought.......an electric option might be good if the plans are to be brought up to date.

Hi Kamco Kid.....I've just corrected your link....URLs can sometimes mess up the page so we ask that you use a hyperlink rather than write out the full address.....for "How to" details please see here

Good luck with the Kamco revival venture....retro is very much in vogue right now...thumbs upwink 2
