Golly, and I thought that they came across a land bridge from Asia about 10,000 years ago.

My favorate part of this thread is the "defenders of free enterprise" that want to restrict imports of cheap foreign goods.

Been to a Wal-Mart lately?

I requested some info but got no answer yet. Maybe that's because they give lots of priority to the US inquirers. Or, who knows, tey're late due to SARS?

Megas and Jeti are Czech. motors, aren't they? Mark-

I only hope the company, if this is a REAL company, can make it through the market.
Read this month's (May) french magazine "Fly" with an article covering the "China Model Expo". No information was provided at the date the fair was held but, in one fotograpah, a Feigao sensored brushless motor was shown.

I got 250K miles on my 1976 Civic. The body had rusted away, but the engine & tranny were still great. I rebuilt the engine at 150K miles for the fun of it one summer. The cylinders were still within factory shipping spec (I had run AMSOIL). Basically I just cleaned the engine, re-ringed it, and changed the lower bushings.

I gave the engine to a boat racer who flipped the boat first time they took it out with that engine - it had never run as fast!

And my very favorable experience with Honda is why I bought a Hyundai. They are in the same QC/price spot as Honda was in 1976.

So American Indians evolved here w/o genetic material from anywhere else, eh?

Thanks, but no thanks. I'm a Native American: I was born here. My mother, OTOH, was born in Germany. My father's family came over a generation or so before. THEY were imported, not me.

YOU might be a hyphenated American, but I'm not. I'm just a plain old American.

PS - I don't believe in evolution anyway.

Czech Republic

I have some Jeti and Model Motors and Hacker products. I also have a couple MPJet props and a gearbox. This isn't a third world country. The country had one of the highest standards of living prior to WWII. Currently people work very hard there to get by, but it's not as bad as Hungary (where the AUDI TT is assembled).

The reason they make all this model plane stuff is probably the proximity to Austria and Germany. In Austria there are modelflugplatz all over the place.

Query the dollar amount spent on this hobby. I am always amazed at the breadth of products available for such a small group of consumers. Lessee: If there's a million RC fliers worldwide (which I doubt) and each spends a grand a year(a high figure) this makes it a billion dollar industry.

I figure the real figure is more like a fifth of this. If there are any industry moguls who have more accurate info, please chime in.

Your estimates of how many R/c modelers there are in the world may be off but when all phases of aeromodeling is taken into account your estimate may be somewhat low. Keep in mind freeflighters and control line fliers spend money also. Your total estimate of the monetary value of model aviation in total may well be correct.

Just my $.03 (inflation)

Getting slightly off topic but, one of the main reasons we see a lot of Czech stuff is in part due to the fall of communism. They have a lot of real high quality engineers who used to work in areas such as aerospace etc, with all this industry gone a lot of cottage industries have sprung up, utilizing those high technolgy skills. Aeromodelling also used to be state sponsered activity.

The labour and exchange rates make the country as competitive as the far east was a few years ago. Many of the ARTF's available are now built there.

Czech Republicans

So your telling me that the Czechs can fly as well as make good stuff for short money. I question if the stuff in China is as good because I doubt the people who make it fly too. And "Made in Taiwan" is your assurance of quality. Do they have state sponsored aeromodeling there?

My question pertains to a vendor who is selling stuff from Japan that is made in Czech Republic, but at prices generally less than the competition. And the Airmail is a bargain and quick to boot. Amazing!!

The question is, how long will it last?

Been to Slovakia? More like the poorer cousins, I guess.

Not long at a guess, their economy is rapidly getting into shape, they are on the list as potential new members of the EU etc, which will bring changes into the market place.

I imagine that at some point the prices will be equivalent to Hacker et al.

The current prices on some of this stuff is amazing, what amazes me more is the fact that I can buy a German Hacker or Czech Axi is the US or Japan cheaper than I can here here in UK.
