Good morning!
I'll get some photos up tonight Kits are starting to go out, some guys should be receiving their kits in a week or so.

Did you receive the Neos fuselage yet?

Rick, Hong Kong is slope heaven, but I'm ashamed to say I haven't really been to the slopes yet! Maybe this summer

What kind of prices are we looking at for a kit? And would you ship one to Australia? They look quite good! I'm lucky enough to have 2 decent thermal fields and a decent slope within half hour drive from me

Cheers,
Ben

David, think you'll like what you see

Ben, you can take a look at prices here (www.armsoar.com/naneos). Shipping to Australia will be no problem at all! We ship world-wide. You're more lucky than me, the thermal field I fly at is across the Chinese border and about 1.5hours from my place! Although..there is a small grass field about 20 minutes away where I can practice once a while

Two new kits ready to roll out the door

Tip reinforcement is extended inwards a couple CM, and is tapered more gradually to ease the loads. Flaperons now extend to the tip of the wings for better efficiency.

Hardware kit includes control horns, aileron pushrods, wire for making 2 hooks for the pull spring, wire for pull spring, a Kevin Caldwell curved blade, and bias FG for the wing joint.

I haven't recieved my fuse as yet, it cant be too far away. So does he do a full carbon wing ? I'm not fussed on weight , but prefer super stiff.

We've been working on doing a dbox and full carbon wing with the available 3K CF cloth, but the results were not as good as we hoped (cosmetically, and weight). Ofcoarse, the 3K full carbon wing is super stiff, but is around 150-160grams which we feel is too heavy, even for high winds.

As soon as I get back from my break starting this Saturday, we will experiment with the R&G spread tow that everyone loves. Hopefully with that nicer cloth we will be able to meet our goals.

(Though if you don't mind the extra weight and slightly less 'refined' look of the 3K cloth, shoot me a PM!)

Everybody knows what people are up to while they are in DongGuan . lol

We may gather in GuangZhou in April. Depending on the other guys.

Have a good trip~!
