A few details about our CAD-generated full-size building plans we send with the kits. As already noted they are clear, digitally precise, and also more detailed. We provide full-size plans, but unlike some other kit makers, ours allow accurate building directly on top of the plans. We accomplish this by providing you with two different sets of building plans for the fuselage construction. Build the fuse sides accurately on one set, then switch over to the second set for top view with more details and proper dimensioning that prevents you from having the wrong length when pressing the rear fuse sides together at the tail end. No more coming up short! Another small detail that we’ve thought about, but one that makes building the fuse quicker, easier, and to the correct dimensions.
We have gone to great lengths to source the absolute highest quality building materials available for all of our kit materials. Our materials cost us more, but they increase the overall quality, strength, and durability of the completed KAM Aero Extra NG airframe. Those are important features we’re sure you’ll appreciate.
PLYWOOD – We specially source our aircraft plywood: All parts of the motor box are produced using hand selected specialty plywood. Each sheet is tested for deviations of thickness, moisture content, tensile strength, gluing strength, bending rigidity, torsion test, immersion test, and boiling test. The quality requirements for plywood used in our kits are significantly more stringent than either standard ply or light ply used in many competing kits.
BALSA – We specially source our balsa: Our balsa is first painstakingly hand-picked and picked for the best possible qualities. Each sheet and stick of balsa is then individually weighed and checked for grain type and quality. Our balsa is then carefully matched by those qualities. All balsa that does not meet our industry-leading quality requirements is rejected. You will not find better balsa in any kit on the market. All balsa sheeting is premium grade edge-trued sheeting which reduces your building time.
FOAM – We specially source our foam: All foam used in our kits meets strict density, compressibility, and uniformity specifications to produce the lightest and sturdiest aircraft foam on the market. The foam density used in our kits is strictly controlled to our exacting specifications and is significantly lighter than the standard grade of foam used in other manufacturers' kits.
FIBERGLASS – The fiberglass Cowl, Wheel Pants, & Cuffs: The cowl, wheel pants, and landing gear cuffs are produced to our exacting specifications by a company with over 30 years of experience producing fiberglass composite parts for engineering applications. The quality of the fiberglass lay-up is outstanding with a beautiful exterior surface that requires minimal preparation for painting. The cowl plugs used to produce the cowl molds were manufactured on a 5-axis CNC machine for accuracy.
LANDING GEAR – Lightweight carbon fiber landing gear featuring our specific lay-up design included with the kit.
CARBON FIBER – Wing & Stab Tubes: Both the carbon fiber wing and stab tubes are produced using our specific lay-up design consisting of unidirectional carbon fiber (at 0, +45, -45, and 90-degree weave directions) to optimize rigidity and strength.
CANOPY – The canopy plug was manufactured on a 5-axis CNC machine for perfect accuracy, and symmetry. The canopies are being formed on a professional-grade vacuum forming machine used for producing optically clear parts. This build process adds up to exceptional quality canopies.
We have also gone to great lengths to maintain the absolute tightest possible tolerances across all of the kit’s materials through the use of high-quality materials, computer-controlled CNC manufacturing machinery, and digitally generated precise CAD plans. We are truly the HIGH TECH aircraft kits!
CNC ROUTER – The motor box is produced from 4×8 foot sheets of select plywood. All plywood parts are produced on a state-of-the-art Laguna CNC router.
CNC 4-axis HOTWIRE FOAM CUTTER – All foam parts are CNC hotwire manufactured with a very high level of accuracy. When the CNC hotwire cutters currently available on the commercial market failed to measure up to KAM Aero's specific requirements for precision cutting of the foam parts for this kit, we sourced a unique purpose-built 4-axis custom hot wire foam cutting CNC machine. This specialized CNC machine also allows us to design more sophisticated airfoil designs with unique root and tip profiles for better high and low-speed snap and stall performance.
