The Puppeteer Mk2 FL1001
 is an updated version of the ever popular Puppeteer of which we have sold over 10000. The new plans and instructions are fully detailed with isometric drawings showing all stages of construction.  The front fuselage incorporates a greater use of die cut components and the engine now mounts on beech bearers.  The external shape of the "Pup" remains the same and the flying characteristics continue to be docile enough for the Sunday flyer.
Like the Magnattila this aircraft can be fitted with floats for even more interest. We have flown it off water with a standard 40 s stroke and it performed superbly.
