cheers

Hi dave
Cheers for the info mate i'll have a look.
Sadly no reply i read the other reviews on the speedwing site and i'am not on my own,others have had the same problems in the past.It's a real shame i was so looking forward to get this little wing,this guy should close his shop and let someone else sell them who would give a better service.I would have thought in todays money crysis in the us and over here in the uk , he would of been glad of the money coming in, and that people still want to buy his products from him .

ya that sucks it must be very frustrating from what I've heard from the builders is that they are not making any money so they are giving up or in so far i have been lucky with my orders from other company's Its a lot of fun making your own planes there easy to replace if they fly strait into the ground at 80 miles an hour like i did with the plane your tying to get all the info is out there to do it yourself I use the KISS (keep it simple stupid) technique when I'm building this technique is available to anyone that wants to use it and have had great results and you could always ask me any questions about how i built the same plane and the larger version which flew into the ground at about 100 mph ( i like flying close to the ground and sometimes that's not a good idea) these planes are fast and the roll rate is intense

I hope your package comes
Dave
