we are expecting 5 models in the next two weeks, these models are supposed to have all the changes we made incorporated into them, Once we can confirm the changes we will be placing a large order and will accept pre orders at that time.

Only one or two of the 5 coming in will be available to the public

Thanks

Bill

All Steel gear servos wanted for the JW?

Hi Guys,

Was just checking out the new JW thread and thought I'd mention that I have some of the latest (unavailable) Volz Micro Maxx X XPs with new ALL steel gears and latest carbon brush motors. At 6V they put out 80oz of torque. Sorry only have 12. Also have 18 of the latest Wing Maxx XP also ALL steel gears and new motors. 10mm thin and fast 60oz torque. The steel gears are cut to a lot closer tolerances than the brass, and the teeth don't peen like brass.

As most know Volz went to only industrial business, so not available to the RC hobby but I got the okay to let a few go for DS guys. I still have all the parts and do repairs for the hobby...as part of my hobby.

$120 shipped if you are interested. I'm not in the business of selling servos but thought guys getting this ship might want some serious servos. Mount pairs are $30.

Happy Holidays!
Gordy

I wish I could afford a $120 servo for some of my other projects but I wouldn't suggest a micro-sized servo for the molded JW when full-size servos fit.

Bill, any updates?

Jason, I am in need of a set of plans for the Charlie Richardson "Saveron". I understand you have a set of the original plans.

What would it take to get a copy?

Thanks much.

We hit a snag with the wing mold, we discovered a warp, this caused a back and forth with the manufacturer.

While this was going on our main contact left the company.

The descision was made to cut new wing molds, new wing molds should be done soon.

Fingers crossed, JW's will be here soon.

We have been told that the new molds are finished. Even with this news we don't have a solid time line. We will post updates as Bill and I get more news.
