    This is the company that went on to become Heathkit and they had kits for just about any electronic device you could think of. If I remember correctly, the owner of Heath died testing one of his kit planes…..

    @ MitchA – Well it all depends on who builds the kit, but a home made transmitter is safer than a home made plane.

    “lands on any field or highway” – a sign of the times, that Heath could assume highways would be empty enough to land an aircraft on them.
