New EPP Flying Wing Kits

We have a new range of EPP Flying wings kits that we are putting together and we are looking for a couple of you to Beta Test these kits for us.

We will supply you the kit at a reduced price, and all you need to do is build it, fly it and record a log for all to see with your opinions.

These kits are still in their infancy, so your build skills will come into play as certain parts may be redesigned based on your recommendations.

These wings are an all EPP construction and will range from 24 inch to a whopping 80inch monster.

So if you are interested in being a Beta Tester, and we only need a couple, PM me now and I will get some details from you. We are looking at having some kits ready in about 3 or 4 weeks (just in time for the Xmas break ).

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!!

Hey mongre, you can't even spell mongrel (in other words there is an L missing from your link)

More beta testing;

Your website page title has a typo, mis-spelt welcome as 'weclome'.

Also using IE7 I cannot open product details for any of your EPP planes just get an error.

Nice design though, bit nicer than the usual osCommerce sites with no work on the template/graphics.

At this stage yes - We are looking for people who have had a bit of past experience and can add their 2 bob's worth to help us improve our products.

Later, we will then ask for some people not so experienced to have a go, so that we can get an idea from both sides of the equation.

Eagle Tree Eagle Eyes pre order

Hello all,

Eagle Tree has announced the Pre-Order for the Eagle Eyes unit. If you are in to FPV and you have the Eagle Tree OSD, then you should check this baby out.

Deliver is around mid Feb, and if the OSD Pro is anything to go by, they will be gone in flash.

The features are impressive - with Diversity and Antenna tracking, it is certainly going to be a great addition to the Eagle Tree range.

We are taking pre orders now, and am happy to answer any questions you have.

We have special running here for while the pre-order is on. So grab a bargain while it lasts.

G'Day All,

I hope you all had a great Xmas. I must say I am looking forward to a good New Year.

Just a short not to let you know that the Eagle Eyes Antenna Tracker pre-orders are being snapped up. We don't have a very big allocation, so if you want one, order on our site so you don't miss out.

We also have the new V4 of the Eagle Tree GPS too.

Fat Sharks are coming in the new year... oh it's all happening!!

It's the start of a new year and lots happening in the world of Mongrel Gear. Below are just a few announcements.

The FlyCamOne3 continues to be popular and we still have it in stock for a crazy $199. We also have the TX/RX kits available too!

Eagle Tree Eagle Eyes pre-orders are going well.
With the release date of the Eagle Eyes looming, the pre-orders are being picked up. If you want one, don't wait until release date, as we do expect there to be a wait for the second batch.

Antenna Tracker System
The Antenna Tracking System that works with the Eagle Eyes is also selling well. As these things are built to order, you will need to pre-order if you want one at the same time as your Eagle Eyes.

10Hz Eagle Tree GPS
We have completely sold out of the new GPS units from Eagle Tree, but have another order about to go in, so if you are after something from Eagle Tree, then now is the time to let us know, and we can include it in the box!

Fat Sharks are getting closer
Our sample set of the new and improved Fat Shark goggles are in the hands of the couriers, and should be with us soon. We hope to have some more info on the web shortly, and will have pricing and availability as well.

EPP Flying Wings
This has been a slow process, but we are progressing with this little project and will have more news in the not too distant future.

Around The World with a FlyCamOne2
For those of you that don't know, we have set out on fantastic mission. To send a FlyCamOne2 around the world to as many places as possible. The response has been terrific and now I am proud to announce that ACME, the manufacturers of the FlyCam range of products have jumped on board to sponsor the whole deal. They are happily supplying the camera that will make the journey.

Details here...

There is SO much happening that it is hard to keep track of. Oh Yeah... one last thing...

If you don't like the prices on our website, or have seen it elsewhere cheaper, then ask us for a better deal!

Cheers all
The Mongrel
