3. Management - The above 2 reasons, PLUS: They've discontinued several popular designs for no apparent reason (Pico Tiger Moth, Beaver, etc.).

4. Where are the GWS heli & quad-copters? HELLOOOOO ?!?!

I do not see the logic behind any of this, and it's entirely THEIR fault. There are plenty of Horizon & Great Planes products in the air, how many GWS designs do you see flying?

I knew of a guy who contacted Mr Lin about building micro edf's using a motor he developed, the rest is history and so is gws.

MIRACLES!!!

I just picked up my Shipment of Micro Slow Sticks , including the NPS version!! We also received Motor mounts, Props, & a few other items we have been out of!!! Woo hoo!!

The local guys have been green with envy over my brushless Micro SS flying in the gym and have all wanted one. Now we won't have enough room to fly them all.

Good, then Mr. Lin, you should really consider a 55 inch E-Starter.

They just relocated and from the looks of things should be back on track.
I attached a google image of what the place looks like. It's right next to the airport.
