LensRc Closing Shop-Thanks to All


I have decided to close up shop at LensRc. After having to go back to my old career to keep the bills paid, I hoped to be able to continue on the wholesale level, but soon found that I had no time for family, or for my club responsibilities. Both are more important to me than my motor biz.

I want to thank all those that have been loyal customers, and the dealers who have stuck by me. I enjoyed the past two years very much, and would not trade the experience for any other. I intend to spend my free time now having fun with my models(something I have not had much time for!), giving more time to family, and dedicating more time to the Kansas City Flying Circuits. As many of you know we just had our third MIFF, and I consider it a huge success. We learned a few lessons, and will apply them in the future. Our preliminary plans for next year are even more ambitious than this year, and will require a lot more of my time.

Thanks to all for a great two years!

Thanks, guy's! I'll be around here on RcGroups! But, I hope to be posting new creations, instead of giving motor advice most of the time!

Thanks for the great service Len. Your motor was my first brushless experience and I'm still flying it in the same plane today. I'l cherish my LensRC motors even more now.

I hope you enjoy the hobby more and get some quality family time in.

Len, one of your motors was also my first brushless. I got it about 18 months ago and it's still going strong. Your quick email answers to my questions about prop savers for my motor helped me get it into the air quickly. Thanks for a great product and best of luck at whatever you do next!

Man Len everyone loves your motors. Most of my customers have said nothing but good things about them. And then all the posts. I thought your sales were good?

Sorry to see you go!

Sales were good, and could have been much better. I just did not have any capital to invest in streamlining, and expanding production, and the level I was at was a little shy of keeping the bills paid. I just could not produce any more. Kind of a catch 22 situation. I went back to the Hot Rod shop (never burn your bridges!), and tried to keep it going wholesale, but alas, I had no life. I am glad that I could leave with a good rep, and on a good note.

Gotta admit, I had a fair amount of pride when I saw the post for that creation!
