New Product
AMPED "505" Temujin DLG

Had some inspiring comments from Customers concerning our AMPED "505" Ronin HA wings. So....why not improve it a bit, throw it on a one piece 2.4 friendly carbon fuse, add our new solid core molded tail parts, and sell it for some really stupidly low price.
So here it is. AUW 9.5 oz. ish with digitals. Lots of carbon, little kevlar. Our proprietary SV sections all around. Slick as........
The tail parts are CNC machined solid core construction. Steve Situm came up with 9 beautiful sections for each stabilizer half!! The tips are so thin, I had to throw more carbon it there also. Full HM Carbon LE. Solid, section true TE. Straight hinge-line for optimum pull-spring resolution, full symmetrical sections. I even was inspired enough to add a slip on feature for the fuselage.
The wing has of course been around for about a year now. It's been updated a bit, nothing drastic, just a modernization. Still made from 1.7oz. Hybrid Carbon Kevlar fabric wrapped around a small planform change from last years model. A diet of Disser fabric reinforcements helped shed some unwanted weight as compared to the older reinforcements without loosing the ridiculously rigid structure. Full redesign of the tip structure to accommodate harder throwing, and upcoming optional molded T-peg. Still very RDS friendly. Still shipped in two pieces, to ensure that stupid low price I mentioned.
Fuselage is, well minimal is a good description. This is our AMPED version of the Salonit fuselage. Outside it is very nice to look at, with it's plain weave carbon finish. But inside... all HM uni-carbon. Very stiff, very skinny, very durable. Yes, you can let people squeeze it a bit.

I will put up more info in the next few days. Web site will open with the release of the APOC kit (yes I finally have that done) but for now, if ya want one you going to need to call me, PM me, or use a smoke signal. Mike Seid will be at the memorial event this weekend. You can get him to to help you make an order also. And hopefully check out the APOC kit he will have. If he can find some black goop CA to stick it together.
505-455-6693 is the shop cell.
PAY-PAL, money order.

Oh, that price. Well this carbon beauty is going to set you back $450+$24 shipping CONUS for the basic kit as shown. Includes basics like carbon control horns, springs, and line for the pull spring system very cool anodized aluminum screws to hold the stuff together. Add $35 we can throw in a set of RCBuilder RDS units. And yes, if you must I have rudderless kits available.
For now, going to stick with the usual 14 days to your doorstep delivery time.

I Like I Like, I will call tomorrow. I am new to rc flying and newer to soaring and I have been picking Greg McGill brain for the last few days on what to buy.
I do have a silly question, one I didn't ask Greg, I assume I need a 4 channel receiver and I run Futaba Fast, would 1.4" x 0.8" x 0.3" receiver fit?

Thanks, and looking forward to talking with you guys on the phone

Andrew

Thanks, I just thought of a handful more questions to ask, but I will wait until I call.
