ABOUT OUR COMPANY
Welcome to KAM AERO – Introducing the new HIGH TECH competition aerobatic aircraft!
This is our new Giant Scale R/C Competition Aerobatic Aircraft – the KAM Aero Extra 300KK –
We are pleased to announce the introduction of a new giant scale R/C competition aerobatic aircraft kit being produced by a totally new aircraft kit manufacturer. Our promise to you is providing the highest quality possible combined with obsessive engineering and computer controlled digital manufacturing processes!
Our new company is called KAM AERO. Cam McCausey is the owner and Kurt Koelling is the designer. KAM is a double play on both of their last last names, “Koelling And McCausey”, and their first names, “Kurt and CAM“. Our goal is to produce the finest quality kit aircraft available on the market with the best possible flying characteristics.
The new aircraft, the KAM Aero Extra 300KK, has a 125.5″ wingspan and a 120.5″ fuselage length with more fuselage side area that provides excellent lift on knife edge for beautiful rolling characteristics. And our exclusive wing root and wing tip airfoil profiles offer both better high and low speed snap and stall performance.
Browse the following pages for more information on this great new giant scale R/C competition aerobatic aircraft including info about the founder’s, the aircraft design rationale, the aircraft specifications and build quality, as well as pictures of the aircraft. You will see why our kit is a proud product of our exacting standards for High Quality and Precision Tolerances. You will see exactly what makes our kit the HIGH TECH aircraft in the precision aerobatics arena.
We also have purchase info for the awesome new Team KAM AERO T-shirts we have available. These great T-shirts are shown under the SWAG! menu tab. We also added some great Team KAM AERO hats that we have available in three color combinations as well. And there is complete contact info to link you directly to the KAM AERO owner, Cam McCausey. Cam will be happy to answer all of your questions concerning our great new aerobatic aircraft, and he can also hook you up with the awesome Team KAM AERO SWAG too. Give him a call today!
Now that May 2020 has gotten here, we have updated our Customer Gallery. And while updating it, I realized of the 20 new photos I posted, that three of the KAM Aero Extra 300KK owners each have three (3) of our 300KK’s that they are flying, as well as building, or having built currently. This means we now have three of our 300KK pilots who will each have three of our aircraft. And one of them owns two 300KK’s. Quite a testament: buy the first KAM Aero Extra 300KK, love it’s flight characteristics, material quality, design points, and it’s overall awesomeness; then buy another one (or pair) to go along with it. And so was born The Triplets Club. So go take a look at the Customer Gallery to see their newest flying aircraft.
So far we have had two top builders (Tom & Ron of RTR Aerocrafters) build a pair of our 300KK’s for clients, and after seeing first hand the design points & material quality during the builds, each sold their current aircraft and went on to build a KAM Aero Extra 300KK for themselves. And we’ve had other master level builders build one for themselves, and then after seeing up close and hands-on the 300KK’s design points & material quality, followed by then experiencing first hand it’s flight characteristics, then deciding to build themselves one or two more. And the Unlimited IMAC competition pilots who after flying their first 300KK aircraft going on to have one or two more 300KK’s aircraft built. The IMAC Unlimited class pilot who did our awesome online Build Manual went on to build a second 300KK (thanks TY!) competition aircraft.
That is absolutely the greatest compliment and best indicator of our aircraft’s design, quality, and most importantly, it’s flight characteristics. That these accomplished competition pilots and skilled builders have gotten rid of their other brands of competition aircraft and now own two or three KAM Aero Extra 300KK’s!
UPDATE: January 2021 – This is a large update. Over thirty photos have been added: on this Home Page (shown just below here), in the Customer Gallery, plus in the RTR Aerocrafters area. So go check them out! The KAM Aero Extra 300KK fleet is really growing and there are some really great looking 300KK akro machines that have just been added…
UPDATE: June 2021 – With this update we have added more photos to the Customer Gallery, plus done some other tweaking throughout the website as well. We’re happy to say that KAM Aero Extra 300KK kits have been selling really well. We have also noticed a trend where more buyers are buying additional kits so they have pairs or triplets of the 300KK aircraft. Some buy multiples right upfront, while others get one and then call us for an additional kit or two. That trend is the same for both builders and for buyers who have the kits professionally built for them. In any event, THANK YOU! That tells us you really like our kits!
IT’S MORE TRIPLETS!!!
December 2020 brought us a New Member of our The Triplets Club – That’s right! The fourth (4th!!!!) owner of three (3) KAM Aero Extra 300KK aircraft is elite level Akro Meister Cayden Bruce. He took delivery a couple weeks ago in December 2020 of brand new Cam McCausey built 300KK’s #2 & #3, to add to his hangar which already houses his initial Cam built 300KK he flew so well in competitions during 2020. He is now busy preparing all of them for the upcoming 2021 competition season. More on this elite level akro meister soon! Cayden’s first KAM Aero Extra 300KK is in the Customer Photo Gallery if you want to ogle it’s awesomeness, and we’re hoping Cayden sends us some pix of his newest #2 & #3 300KK’s so we can add them as well.
WOW! Four top level competition pilots – 12 KAM Aero Extra 300KK aircraft. And several more competition pilots who own pairs (so far). What more can we tell you about how awesome our kits build & fly???
And speaking of those KAM Aero Extra 300KK’s delivered to our latest The Triplets Club member, take a look at these photos of a van we sent from our KAM Aero shop in Michigan southwestward all the way out to Arizona just a few weeks ago in December 2020. Read about it in the details below these photos –
SIX (6) KAM Aero’s! That is what we placed inside our delivery van for this very long trip Southwest. You are looking at what four (4) complete 300KK kits plus two (2) completely built, covered, painted, & finished 300KK aircraft look like in VERY cozy proximity to each other. And still room for our driver & passenger! We sold the pair of completed aircraft to our newest Triplet Member & Akro Meister Cayden Bruce, and sold the four kits to four other pilots. The five of them then went in together and paid for the delivery which saved them some money (particularly for the built aircraft owner versus paying crating & trucking costs for two crates traveling over 2,000 miles one way), guaranteed them fast but totally stress free delivery, and was overseen by our KAM Aero delivery specialist who is a giant akro pilot himself, and treats all of the KAM Aero kits and aircraft he delivers as if they were his own. And no – this wasn’t his longest trip as he had already taken a newly completed 300KK way out to California a couple months earlier for us. So if you need custom delivery service, be sure to ask us about that. Now you know that KAM Aero really goes the extra mile – literally!
RTR Aerocrafters – Our good friends Ron & Tom still have a couple build slots open for builds this winter. Remember, you can save shipping cost on your 300KK kit since they are located nearby the KAM Aero shop. Cam’s build tables are busy with several 300KK builds for the next several months. So the fastest way to have a KAM AERO ready for Spring 2021 competition is to have RTR Aerocrafters do your build, plus you will very likely get to watch your 300KK’s build progress in one of RTR’s great build threads on FlyingGiants. Call Cam and he’ll get you hooked up!
It seems that COVID-19 has really spurred KAM Aero sales over the past several months. Apparently more builders need something to do at home for fun and entertainment this winter, and what better way then to build a KAM Aero Extra 300KK while you’re bunkering at home. And when the Spring 2021 flying & contest season starts, flying R/C is a great way to be outside in the fresh air and enjoy flying while still social distancing. We have not raised our pricing even though the tariffs have hit various parts of the industry (including our kit materials). We have also just recently laid in an extremely large load of the high quality, top grade balsa wood that we’re famous for among experienced builders. We’re doing this to assure you of the same very high quality kit components that you have come to expect from KAM Aero – and we’ve done that all while holding the 300KK kit price steady! Call Cam today for your kit or your build.
By the way, we have had some questions and want you to know that build wise we will build to any level you need from simply sheeting the wings and stabs for you, to “in the bones” (all wood work done but uncovered), to covered, to painted, to a “turn key” with all equipment & engine expertly installed, that is completely finished and ready to go fly. Whatever you need, just call and discuss it with us, we’ll be more than happy to help you get it just your way!
ARE YOU BORED OF BUNKERING?
It’s the beginning of May 2020 and I know most of you are still hunkered down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But flying season is upon us up in the northern part of the U.S. We’re finally starting to get some warm and sunny days again. And it looks like being outside flying may be one of the safest hobbies right now since it makes social distancing easy and gets us outside in the fresh air. Tired of the sameness of working from home and watching TV on the couch day in and day out? We can help! We would be happy to ship you a KAM Aero Extra 300 kit for you to work on (or we can have one custom built for you).
HEY! IT’S ANOTHER SPECIAL LIGHTWEIGHT FOAM DELIVERY FOR KAM Aero!
We now have quite a few KAM Aero Extra 300KK aircraft that have been completed, as well as many more in various stages of construction. We have kits going out to our customers all the time and we are adding customer photos of the finished kits as we receive them. Just click on the “CUSTOMER GALLERY” tab in the menu areas near the top & at the bottom of each page in the website to see these photos. We even have photos from the three kits that went down under to Australia….
Announcing our newest gallery! RTR Aerocrafters have built so many KAM Aero 300KK kits that we have given them their own photo gallery. You’ll find it in our page menus – go check it out!
NEWS FLASH! KAM Aero kits have invaded the Southern Hemisphere! See photos of the Aussie builds right here on our customer gallery page. Australia will now have three KAM Aero Extra 300KK’s flying this season!
For current info on kit availability, please look under the pricing section of the Specs & Kit Pricing page for our most recent kit availability info. That is where our current updates will be located now.
Also be sure to check out our growing Build Manual page – it is accessible through the menus at the top and bottom of each page. It features PDF files for each component build (i.e. Motor Box, Fuselage, Hatch, & etc.). It is clearly explained, is nicely illustrated, has photos, as well as helpful annotations at critical steps that will answer many questions you may have about the kit build or structural details. We revise & update this manual as needed instead of the typical poorly “one & done” style of manual, or worse yet, a single sheet of cryptic instructions. Also remember, the KAM Aero owner (a Master Builder & IMAC Unlimited pilot) is ALWAYS available to help you anytime you need it, whether to discuss building, adhesives, covering, equipment selection, set-up, or whatever. Yeah, you can even ask him about his favorite 2-stroke oil!
UPDATE: There is also ANOTHER great build thread of ANOTHER pair of KAM Aero Extra 300KK kits built by our friends Tom, Ron, & Ralph over at FlyingGiants. This makes kits #3 & #4 for them as they built the first pair in the winter of 2017/2018, and the second pair in the winter of 2018/2019. What sets this 2nd kit pair apart is that they built the second pair of Extra 300KK’s for themselves! That’s an awesome testimonial of what they think about our kit. They have added the second pair build thread onto the initial build thread for the first pair. The RTR Aerocrafters team not only know how to build a great aircraft, they also know how to do a great build thread! The link to their FlyingGiants thread is located right here at the RTR Aerocrafters photo gallery page – so go on over to FlyingGiants and check it out!
NOTE to our potential new customers: We understand these aircraft are a sizable financial expenditure for you, and that you are probably tired of getting little to no info on the design decisions, quality of the materials provided, company background, or manufacturing capabilities (besides the usual brief 3 or 4 airframe specs) from aerobatic kit manufacturers during your pre-purchase research. So we have gone in a different direction for you. We want you to have ready access to all possible info & specs, including building info, a proper build manual with the most up to date written/illustrated/photographed information which we revise and update as needed (instead of a poorly “one & done” manual or instruction sheet) & builder tips, and most importantly, to also provide you with easy and direct access to the owner himself. Manufacturing these aircraft is not a hobby, a sideline, or a part time job for us.
And we will be adding more information, more pictures, great builders tips, and a video interview with Kurt Koelling discussing the background of the new aircraft as well as it’s flight characteristics. We will even be adding a blog to keep you updated on all things KAM AERO, as well as on competition aerobatic flying. And of course there will be links to our social media sites added here soon. So check back often!
