Ralf-So do you have a long waiting list for the kit, or are Christmas deliverys possible?
Have you prototyped one of the all molded wings yet? How does the weight look?
|Dec 06, 2001, 04:43 PM|
I do have several "spare" ones, without a name on it, on the shelf, I can send one your way, right away...
and so is the reply to: PlaneCrazy...xmas delivery IS possible,
I can get kits for the states together, say, next week
No, no prototype for the moulded wings yet, the moulds are just being CNC-3D-routed!!! Damn expensive, but saves time which I don't have! And I will have even less next year (main job asking, captain upgrade on the Challenger for the MOD )
But I calculated the weight and it will come even with the foam wings incl. glassing of the surface = including retracts!
If you're really interested in ordering please mail me under firstname.lastname@example.org or klick on the link under www.rd-jets.de
so we could arrange payment and shipment.
I intentionally didn't post in US$ as the exchange rate to the EUR changes, just calculate the daily $-EUR rate.
Sorry, but payment would have to be in EUR over here.
AFAIK import taxes into the US would be 0, as the kit falls under "toys" and they're taxfree, I will quote the # on the parcel.

c'm on, don't waste your time with that bungee launched toys .
Congrats for this awsome plane with its spectacular performance . If it only had retracts ...
So please put me on the waiting list for the fully moulded version with retracts.
