Welcome to Fly2Build.com. This site and our kits were created to inspire people to enjoy the rewarding hobby of hand-building and flying radio controlled model airplanes.

The aircraft kits we produce were all designed and CAD drawn by either Mike MacFarland and/or Sky Greenawalt.  Using these CAD files, we produce a kit of model airplane parts, carefully package them with the printed construction plans and specific accessories, and ship the kits worldwide.   

In 2014, we invested in a complete rebuild of our (now) 150 Watt CO2 laser cutter with 24” x 48” cutting table. The power increase has meant more material versatility, with less charring and higher cut quality.

The designs and kits that we produce are ones which have fascinated, challenged or inspired us in some way. Subjects for production are not chosen based on what will sell the most kits like the major model production companies are forced to do. As a “cottage industry”, we are able to cut and ship on a “one off” basis.

We maintain a large inventory of pre-sorted, weighed and grain-selected balsa that is hand selected and cut specially for your kit.  

You will find our prices are reasonable, and our quality of materials very high.  We uphold high standards of service, and if there is ever a problem, we will stand behind our product and make it right.  

We look forward to doing business with you.
