Both the original Moose and Super Rebel aircraft have a well earned reputation of being both robust and versitile airframes. It is also the case that given the type of service these rugged aircraft are engaged in, and the significant horsepower now being made available with our LS3 engine packages, some important and cost effective fuselage upgrades are being offered as well..

Horizontal Strut Brace Kit for use on either the Bull Moose or Super Moose: $300.00
NOTE: With the exception of the Heavy Duty “V” brace and engine mount carry through, all of these upgrades may be installed in a completed Moose or Super Rebel airframe. Information will be provided with each kit describing best practices for installation of each element to be installed. To install the HD “V” brace and carry through hardware to the engine mount in an existing aircraft, it is necessary to remove the wings and windshield, so obviously much easier to do doing a regular build process. FWIW...I have done it in a completed airframe...a bit of a chore but most certainly worth the effort for the results it provides.
Further note: Most if not all of the Super Moose upgrades may be applied as well to the Yukon airframe.
Generally speaking we can ship a fuselage upgrade package within 60 days of receiving a 50% deposit. Order will ship or be available for pickup with payment in full. We do accept PayPal and use that as our preferred means of payment for engine and fuselage packages.
As always...feel free to call with any questions.
