Hi there everyone!
We are very pleased to announce that we have completed the development and manufacture of the Sawn Craft Mini Mana-Tee and it is now available to purchase!
Don't be fooled by the name, this aircraft is more of a shark in combat flights! Perfect for small fields and indoor flying, the powerful motor combined with large control surfaces makes this an extremely capable model.
Well, we couldn't have asked for nicer weather today! There wasn't a cloud in the sky and though around noon-time the thermals brought some wind, for the most part the air was full of planes! There were some amazing WW1 and WW2 models being shown and flown!
I was able to get in a handful of flights on my Hangar 9 Sopwith Camel and Freewing SBD-5 Dauntless as well as my Micro F-22! Here is a video of one of our club pilots flying my Micro F-22:
The attached photos show the list of generous sponsors that donated to the event raffle that all proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Foundation. Today's raffle raised over $600 for the charity! The second photo is of just a small portion of the planes in attendance with the AT-6 Texan in the foreground that won Best In Show!
We'll be back tomorrow for what is forecast to be another perfect day for flying! Come join us if you are in the area! For more information about the event, visit www.NCRCC.org
This journey that we've been on over the past year, getting Sawn Craft up and running, has taught us quite a bit. Two weeks ago, though, I spoke with a gentleman on the phone that requested a product catalog. Hmm. At that point in time I had never even thought about putting together a print catalog of our products; why should we since we have a website? Well, we've worked to get the print document to ship to this gentleman and any others that request it.
I'm just very thankful that I've been able to work with some great customers that are willing to suggest things that they'd like to see! With any luck, we'll have many years to come of happy manufacturing and even happier customers just as long as we remember that the world still does appreciate the value of a print document and a hand-written letter!
We went to the Big Biplane Bash today in Farmington, CT. It was a good-sized event with probably 35 pilots and close to 100 multi-winged airplanes! It was a last minute decision to attend this one, but it will surely be on the calendar for next year!...Continue Reading
I have arranged some time so tonight I will be running some cutting tests on a Universal Laser 80w cutter!
I've used this machine to cut some test cuts last year, but this time I have a variety of materials, (DTFB, EPP, Depron, balsa, basswood, plywood, and poster board) and a truly scientific test method so the results should be repeatable for future production runs!
Stay tuned to find out more about the new projects that I'll be finishing up in the coming weeks!
