HobbyKing is now taking orders for the Karden Ultimate. It's only $199.95 plus shipping. It's not on the website yet, so you have to call....

I again spoke with Dennis last weekend about the Ultimate. He has toooo many things on the burners and trying to keep up with production. With the recent balsa supply issues he has been challenged with keeping top quality balsa on the shelf. So another kit in the mix at this moment would be another challenge. He has not abandoned the plane but just back burner to simmer a little longer. Keep the faith, it will happen at some point. I also have a 150 that needs a good home and am patiently waiting.

Is there even a second prototype? If you read the flight report from the first one it kind of leads me to believe that there was one built but I could be wrong about it. I know he has a lot going on with trying to keep up with balsa and all, so I would rather not bug him about it because he knows that we want one! If I had my rathers I would want them keep the quality in what they have before strechting them selves out with another project to keep up with.

Default Carden Ultimate

Hey Guys, the ultimate on page 61 is not the actual Carden kit. Dick and Don did build the prototype a couple years back. As you all read the test flight report on the Carden site, it had issues. Dennis has not gotten back to the Ultimate redesign and until further notice is on hold. I believe the Ultimate that you see in Model Aviation is a scratch build most likely using remnants of the prototype and their own efforts.
