We've noticed that a few more traditional kits have been appearing over the last few months. Nothing to stem the ARTF tide of course but enough to make us sit up and take note.
 
The kit above is one such example from Jamara, a 40" span Gee Bee racer from a German manufacturer and one of a new five-model line up that includes a Mew Gull, DHC-2 Beaver, Bonanza and Pitts Special. Designed for electric power, it's entirely laser-cut and supplied with a few items of hardware and a canopy screen.
 
Jamara suggest a 2820/6 outrunner, 2500mAh 3S Li-Po and a 40-50 amp ESC for the model along with four standard micro servos. First impressions are good but this is one for those who've built from a kit or plan before as the instructions are vague in places. RRPs for the Jamara models are attractive and vary between £59.90 and £69.90 with the Gee Bee priced at £69.90.
