Will try to add on!

I know that Dave Sleeth of Sleeth Hobbies here in Springfield ( http://www.sleethhobbies.com/ ) is very interested in carrying your products. How does he go about buying from you direct (right now he goes thru Horizon and has had lots of trouble getting your products from them). Thanks,
Eric

Mr Lin,
There are many LHS that would carry GWS products, but have difficulty working through your distributor chain. Profit margins in this hobby are pretty thin, and some of the distributor/hobby shop "arrangements" simply make the GWS products unprofitable. It would be nice to see a GWS "package" offered to the LHS that would cover the needs of the hobbiest. It's great to be able to buy a kit, but what about spare props? Too often, they have the kit, but none of the backup parts that keep us flying. There is a reason so many of us buy over the internet. We can do a stock check sitting at our computer, order what is needed, and in most cases, have the items three days later. Contrast this with driving 20 miles to our nearest LHS only to find that he's "out" of anything we need! Obviously, there are exceptions, but it is too often the case. Sorry for the rambling, but there isn't a simple answer to your question.

Mr. GWS4CEO

---I was in San Diego a couple of weeks ago and went into a hobby shop that stocks some GWS parts and asked for a S1 and a S2 7.2 dual motors. They said they would like to sell me and a lot of other modelers the motors but they can't get the motors. I didn't ask if they just couldn't get the motors or if they couldn't get an adequate supply. Sounds like a distrubitor problem to me.

Mr. Lin,
Gerald at www.officeshops.com
Perry at www.aeromicro.com
John at www.allerc.com

These are the three people that get a tremendous amount of traffic from Zoners and non Zoners. If my LHS www.winderhobby.com does have it, these guys are my next call.

Mike

Mr. Lin:

Could you add the Hobby People chain to your dealer list? It is my selfish request because they have a store that is close to me.

I am fraid due to Hobby People and Horizon in business not very much. I check their shops in LAX, can't find GWS airplanes displayed.

They have OEM logo with some of GWS products. But not very much items.
