About HA Kits

Thank you for visiting Hughes Aircraft kits.

Although we are a  new business  we have over 40 years experience of building model aircraft.

We have tried to bring all this knowledge and experience together to produce Kits which are a pleasure to build and fly.

The kits are designed to be practical but maintain a scale outline and incorporate features to make them easy to assemble and satisfying, not frustrating to build.

Please see our range of kits below. We’re always adding to our range. If you have any queries, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help and advise.


Our shoestring kit started the trend, proving a very popular ‘builders’ kit for the modelling enthusiast.

At 78″ wingspan and requiring a 25-35cc engine (electric conversion is an option, enquire for more information) and only requiring 6 servos (plus an optional choke servo) it’s the perfect ‘smaller’ large model. Key features are as follows:

  • 78″ Wingspan
  • 6 Servo Setup
  • 25cc-35cc petrol engine (electric optional)
  • AUW off less than 9kg
  • Hardware pack options available
