Hello dear model builders,
finally there are news from Tony and me again from our model making workshop.
Tony and I spent the last two months mainly on our university degrees. Accordingly the work was suspended.
From mid-July on we are back again and have a lot of great models in the planning for the coming months.
But there are also new offers in the accessories section this week.
Many customers have asked for a larger selection of receivers.
We have answered this request and from now on we have two more receivers of the SFHSS class (only suitable for the Futaba brand - TJ6, TJ8, TJ10 transmitters) on offer as a test.
We also have an excellent 1.5 gram linear servo in stock.
Here you find the list including pictures for all new accessories
1.0 mm Plug JST:
Propeller 138 mm (no Motor)
New model Göppingen Gö-3 Minimoa available end of August
Tony continued to work on our latest model while he was at university.
Our Minimoa prototype was completed in early July and now the final tests are following.
We have dated the start of production on 10.08.2020.
Also professional pictures of the new "bird" have already been taken.
Some facts about the model plane:
wingspan: 1422 mm
Scale: 1 : 12
Total weight without electronics: 150 grams - the weight is a real masterpiece from Tony for this class of construction.
We have also already taken most of the pictures for the manual and together we will have it ready by mid August.
Pre-orders are possible, I have already been contacted by some interested customers.
The selling price is not fixed yet, we plan to sell it for between 90 - 120 EURO.
All pre-orderers will get a 10% discount. Just get in touch with me.
New supplier for balsa wood and plywood
Furthermore we are trying to improve the quality of the kits. After we bought the new lasercutter in April, we had to change our supplier for even higher quality construction timber.
Our new plywood components will no longer warp and can therefore be stored better.
Now I can look forward to the winter season without humidity problems.
Expansion in Europe
In addition to Germany, we are now also listed on the Amazon marketplace with all model aircraft in Great Britain, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.
So we can offer you all models without shipping surcharge.
The KITs are all shipped with prime shipping.
Only the safe storage at Amazon is a challenge for us.
But I am already working on a solution and have wrapped the KITs thickly in bubble foil before sending them to the mail order company.
Tony was on a maiden voyage with his A6M2
Tony is also busy building models in his spare time. Here you can see his latest model.
That's our little update for the last months.
We hope that all model builders are well and that they can continue to fly their models regularly.
Tony and Sebastian
