Awesome shop Sean! A clean shop makes the building process a lot more pleasurable too, so hopefully you'll enjoy it more now. Nice work!

Hi Sean,

I read somewhere that you've stopped producing
the pterosaurs due to a problem with one of them.
Is that true ?

I hope not - of all your designs, I like the pterosaur
best .

Cheers,
Patricia

The tables on the right are for regular parkflyer assembly.

The shop is still a mess...over 10 years worth of accumulation...but I made a significant dent and I think it will make a positive impact on my production speed. I'm leaving as it is for now until I get a bunch of kits shipped.
umm ,,, I like to be that kid in that candy store ..

Good job

Khaled

Hi Patricia,

I didn't have a probem with them. Mine flies great and the video shows it... but Lorinorm did and sent his back so I sat on production of it until I could figure out what was wrong with his. I need to get on that so I can send you yours.

Tell Carol I'll pick some flowers from the field and send it her way if she does.

G-LO,

Are you sitting down? Your neon yellow Lazy Hawk wing shipped yesterday!
woo-hoo huh?

That's the good news. The bad news is I didn't ship any parts out with it.

Hi Mr Sean

Would you please check your email .... when you have the chance ...

The aluminum spacers that are press fitted inside the bearing of the new con-rods have larger inside diameter than the screws ,,, the screws wiggle inside .... so what is the best way to resolve this issue ... I have the correct size spacers ... but I'm can't get those larger inside diameter ones outside the bearings ... they are really stuck in there ,,, and I don't want to damage the bearings....

Any suggestions ... ??!!!


Thanks a lot

Khaled
