New GWS Slow Sticks


Grave's in Orlando has 150 new Slow Sticks. They are $25.19 at their website, but I was charged 37 for one.

Best thing is they come with a can type motor mount, not the usual GWS geared drive.

Whats with the shipping cost ?

Was going to order 3 and cheapest shipping was $77. I'll pass.

Edit; So I went back and put in a order for 1 to check shipping cost, cheapest $25.77. Are they nuts ?

pull up -- PULL UP!!!
Aloft "owns" the new Slow Stick line now. Prices are mid-$30s with a motor and mid-$20's without. Aloft has charged fair shipping on my past purchases, but never a plane so I don't know.

I just spoke with Lisa at Graves and they had a glitch on their shipping cost. She has since fixed this and the shipping cost is better. Best thing to do is call her at 407-294-0012 and let them know what you want and they will fix it up for you. Awesome service.

Just FYI.

also if you click their discount section and order more than 100 worth you can use the coupon code and get 10 bucks off the purchase! I plan on ordering 4. Lisa will credit the difference in shipping cost after purchase. You will get the money back on your payment the same day. In my case it will be a 34.86 credit. That works and makes each kit 44.75 after shipping and discounts. Not too shabby.

This is better than Aloft

Glad to see some revival on the GWS line. Shipping costs have gone up everywhere, but you can't go wrong with Graves or Aloft.

YAY! The king is back! With a CF fuselage upgrade even. This is definitely the best thing to hit the market in the last couple years.

$10 price increase. Must be a result of inflation over the course of one day.
