Anyone know if Brian Huffemeier is still building Cardens? He has built a bunch of awesome looking Cardens!
We used to fly at the same field before he moved to Arizona.

Just to prove many people's points on here, I am flying a Huffemeir built Carden that is around 12 years old. People ask me if it is new all the time. When correctly built they fly awesome, and last a looooong time.

Wang,
Get in touch with the real problem here, your tightee whities are one size to small and the boys are in a bind.
Carden can sell or not sell to whoever or whatever they wish. I got lots of kits and ARF that I want and can afford but can't buy because of availability or some other reason.
Grow up, buy a pair of boxers, set the boys free and quit complaining. Fly what you got and enjoy the hobby. You could take up golf and die a frustrated old man.
Personally, I'm like Cramer on Cheers "living free and loving it!" and waiting for someone to release a first rate 100cc sized Yak 54 kit.

BMACK991's Carden is a gorgeous plane. Here is a small video I took of it with my iPhone.
