Mini -D hlg (kitted again)?

Hey All,

Is there any interest in this lil glider if it was produced again obviously from someone else?

If so, I'm going to be making a few kits for myself and possibly a few for sale to offset the cost.

If your interested, give a shout-out. Please see post #3 for more info.

Regards
Bill

Yes it is, with a few tweaks.

I am starting a list of folks that might want one and I can add your name to the list if you would like. You are in no way obligated to buy anything by placing your name on the list. It's just to give me a sense on how many I need. No payment is needed until it's ready to ship. At that point, I will PM you telling you your kit is ready to ship. If your still interested then you can make a payment.

For everyone,

I know someone made these before and skipped out on a lot of folks and I understand you might be trigger shy. For those folks, If you provide me with something from Paypal saying you were ripped off, or you have posted on RC Groups that you where ripped off by the previous person making these, I will ship the kit to you BEFORE payment is made, but the date of your dispute has to be before today's date. Once you receive the kit, you agree to pay for the kit within 24 hours.

Tail feathers are cut, beveled and hinged and I'm making wings tonight but I'm waiting on a couple of other items and I should be shipping very soon.

Regards
Bill

Would you be able to ship to the UK and how much would the total cost be??

Could you add some pics to the thread?

Thanks

Excellent.
And good thinking about accommodating the folks who were screwed by the previous guy.
I know two of those people and will forward this thread to them.
Hopefully the pay-after-receipt will be incentive enough

Are you planning the same with the mini Opteryx DLG?

Hi Chris,

As far as shipping to the UK, ... I'll have to check on that for you.

And the pics.

Yeah, It fly's great.

I was having issues with the launch in my front yard, but after checking with the fine folks here, a launch flight mode with 20% right rudder fixed that.

I mostly slope so I started staring at my roof, ... Hmmm, I chucked it up and started sloping my 1 story roof with a 3mph E wind. I was at it for about 4 minutes and the alarm went off saying, ... Time to go to work.

The price is going to be around $48.00 shipped. I might be able to get it to $45.00 or less but I wont know until after this weekend. I have made a few tools over lunch hour today to get her kitted with the least amount of time involved which is the key to bringing the cost down.

I'm not looking to start a business, nor am I looking to get rich of of fellow hobbyist, just trying to build a few planes for my son and myself and offset the cost by selling a few. Plus this will give him a quick education on all things involved as he will be helping me.

Regards
Bill

Nope, ... Hobby King makes a very similar item. The Bird Plane. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...00mm_PNF_.html
