Pls ask your current supplyer to booking order for you through a normal distribution.

However, if they are unable to provide this service to you, contact GWS:
service@gws.com.tw

jce,

One of GWS dealers in Switzerland probably stocks EPO birds NOW.
Would you contact info@gws-rc-models.ch to see if you're lucky.

Hi Jce,

Would you send it again to service@gws.com.tw as I'm afraid that someone might have taken care of it already. I'll try to find it out from the mail account.

gws-rc-models.ch reports that he received a few EPO GWS-15 models in this post

I hit another tree today and the tail plane came off my EPO GWS T-6 because Super Glue failed under shock load. The model fell 4 meters, out of the tree, and a wing tip struck the ground first followed in quick succession by the tail plane . There was no foam damage. I would suggest that the tail plane be attached using Gorilla Glue to withstand shock loads.

Ken,

Thanks, he'd be one of the early EPO bird vendors in Europe.

Sorry to take so long to answer Mr Lin but I have still been evaluating the EPO foam model.

I think that a dedicated EPO Glider would be a good idea. Not as big as the Multiplex Easy Glider. About 1.3 to 1.5 meter would be a nice size. Make it in three forms. "RTF", "RTF minus the transmitter, the battery and receiver" and "Assembly Kit" .

Stumbled across this thread, HAD to bump it. Such an incredible amount of negativity towards EPO 10 years ago, and now it's the standard. Read the posts and have a good laugh.

10 years ago there was good reason to be negative about EPO. A lot of development and improvement has happened over the years.

I've got an Easy Tiger EPO 63" B-17 ( with 3 hear retracts & opertional bomb nay doors) I'm guessing almost 10 years old now, about 5 1/2 lbs with battery, STILL flying after all this time, even after a couple of really bad takeoffs (1 second flights, wheels NOT the first part to contact ground upon 'landings'), still all original parts (sure wish I could find some replacement props tho).
It flexes a lot on windy days, but it's still all in 1 piece, and it flies slow enough to appear VERY realistic. LOVE EPO, no more 'ding' repairs.
