I believe this is Ray's second FK. Before getting this kit, he wrote:
"Hello Bruce. I goofed big time, I sold my Flyin king last year, and although I am into scale, I sure miss the ease of flight and the enjoyment of the aircraft."
|Johnny in Georgia
"The King met and exceeded everything I had read about the model. I built it as a tail dragger (your pull-pull rig works perfectly) and have included a tow release so that I can haul sailplanes."
Model built by Ken Roberts
"The colour scheme derives from Macintosh’s Toffees,because of course it is toffee/candy bomber. Don’t you love the tuned pipe?"
|Warren in Alberta
"Hi Bruce, My Flying King ready for its maiden flight which was a joy. Photo also seems to be proof that the earth is round. Thanks for a great kit!"

A few builders have converted their Flyin' King to a low-wing configuration, but this has to be the sleekest one yet. I love it! Sorry, no conversion plans are available from BTE.
|Roland in Michigan
"The kit was excellent and I will recommend it to anyone who is interested."
|Frank in New York
"This is my second model of this plane, and one of the best planes I have ever flown. After a mishap with my first plane, I decided to change the tail feathers a bit.
"I got a lot of oohs and aahs on the maiden flight last week."
