I think Hobby Hangar is having problems!

I wanted to buy a Windfree kit from Hobby Hangar.
They were out of stock.......I waited about 3 weeks till I was notified the kits were back in stock.
I was told the kits were made in lots of 100.
So I called Hobby Hangar and placed an order for two Windfree kits over a week ago.
I noticed no charges were made to my credit card.
I sent them a email inquiring if there was a problem.
No response.
So I tried to call them yesterday......and the phone number listed on there site is now a fax line only.
I called this morning.......same problem.

I will give them a fair reasonable amount of time to process the order.
In the mean time Im going to order some CF spar cap strips.
Hopefully this order will go through.

Don't get discouraged. I think they might be a one man operation. It took me about two months to get mine and they don't charge your card until they are ready to ship which is a good thing. If you e-mail them, they are pretty quick to respond.

Thanks Ken for the info. I am not going to sweat it. Ive done my part its up to them.
If the kits don't show I will pick up a set of plans and scratch build a Windfree. I think you can still buy Windfree plans from RCM.

Hey Kickace that is what I thought at first. But I dont think Ray sells the Standard Windfree kit anymore.
Thanks for the update on the WF-XL I didnt know he had some kits available.
I like Rays Kits........I have two of his Oly3's

Hey guys I got two of the kits I ordered. Apparently if you place an order with them.......just sit back and relax.
They don't give you any clues as to whats happening but you will eventually get your stuff.
The kits by the way are very nice quality and worth the wait.

Windfree CF spar cap strips

What size CF strip did you use and where did you order them from?
