Commonly Asked Questions
What is a "Laser Parts Kit" ?
Commonly referred to as a “Short Kit. Typically there parts that are too detailed to cut by hand. Wing Ribs, Fuselage Formers and Doublers can be some of these. Additional materials such as Sheeting, Sticks, Cowls, Canopies & Undercarriage are not included.
Do you supply a Full Wood Kit" ?
In the past we have supplied Full Wood Kits. Unfortunately we have chosen to suspend them in the best interest of the company and are focusing on the quality of our Laser Parts Kit.
Can I get a kit cut from a set of plans I already own that's not listed on LCKA's website ?
This service has now ceased and we only sell from what is listed on the website.
Can you copy plans ?
Only if you prove if they aren’t being supplied by other company’s and aren’t under copyright.
Can I pick up locally ?

How long does it typically take to ship my kit out ?
A new Laser Parts Kit from scratch usually takes 4 weeks, if its something we’ve done before is about 2 weeks. Sometimes this can stretch out due to things out of our control. Typically all kits arrive before the estimated times.
What types of materials do you use for your kits ?
A harder grade of balsa is used for laser cut parts which is acquired from Balsacentral.com. We typically use a Russian Birch and Aircraft Ply for structural applications and non-structural we use a Bass or Poplar Ply.

Yes you can. We do specify CAD guidelines on the website from the Home page.
