10% off EPP Holiday sale, carbon fiber, and UPS update

10% off EPP Holiday Sale

From now until the beginning of 2019 we are offering a 10% off holiday sale for all our #1.3 EPP foam.  The current sale price already reflects the 10% off sale.  If you are buying in bulk, please contact us for better pricing.  Now you can build your project out of EPP sheet foam and save money in the process.  Click HERE to start shopping now.

Here’s a tip for sorting.  Due to the service we use for listing our products on the website, we can not easily sort by size, however there is a trick you can use.  Since the foam progressively cost more as the size increases, you can sort by price low to high to get the foam to sort by size low to high.  Hope this helps in your search to find the foam that will best fit your project.

UPS update

I believe we have things sorted out with UPS.  I think the shipping rates are finally fixed, so what you see should be what UPS is actually charging us when we go through our account and pay for the shipping labels.  If there is any difference between what you pay and the actual price, we will refund the difference to our customers.   You welcome to contact us at any time if you would like us to verify the actual shipping cost.  Currently the best way to reach us is through our Facebook page.  You can find us by searching for Wind Catcher RC or click HERE.

Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber strips and rods were added to the website recently (LINK HERE).  We have limited sizes, however we plan to expand as we find out what is most widely used.  We can offer a bulk discount on orders over 100.  Please contact us if you need more carbon fiber or sizes that we don’t have listed on the website.  I have access to quite a few different sizes, but with limited funds from starting up my own business, I can not carry everything in stock.  I can beat most retail prices. Currently the best way to contact us is through our Facebook page. We hope to add a form to the website eventually, but for now you can find our Facebook page HERE.

Carbon Fiber, UPS, and Spec Wing kits

Carbon Fiber

Some carbon fiber strips and rods were added to the website today (LINK HERE).  We have limited sizes, however we plan to expand as we find out what is most widely used.  We can offer a bulk discount on orders over 100.  Please contact us if you need more carbon fiber or sizes that we don’t have listed on the website.  I have access to quite a few different sizes, but with limited funds from starting up my own business, I can not carry everything in stock.  I can beat most retail prices.

UPS

We are still working with UPS about our rates. We resolved one issue today which helped reduce the shipping charges our customers see. An issue still exists between what our customers are being charged and what we actually pay when we ship directly from the UPS page. Our UPS representative is currently working on this. We hope to have this resolved soon. We will refund any difference between what our customers pay and what we pay to UPS.

Spec Wing

The Spec Wing kits are getting closer to completion. Bob and Donny over at Thrust FPV did some crash testing and found the wing held up very well. We are still working out the details for the motor mount and winglets. Once this part of our R&D is finished, we’ll have the kit up for sale. I know this is taking longer than expected, however we want to sell the best product we can possibly make.  We are almost there!

UPS shipping

UPS shipping rates are not displaying properly on check out.

I have a message to my UPS representative to figure out what is happening.
I signed a new contract with UPS recently and since then my actual rates have dropped when I get a shipping label, but for some reason the UPS plugin for the website is overcharging people. If you place an order and get over charged, I will refund you the difference between what you paid and actual. I will get this figured out as soon as I am able.

Update, 2″ EPP is here, and Spec Wing

2 inch EPP

I picked up a pallet of new EPP foam.  It currently sits in the back of my enclosed trailer waiting to be processed and cut down for sale.  If all goes well, I will have 2″ foam (LINK HERE) back in stock and ready for sale by Friday evening (Nov 2).Foam in trailer

Spec Wing

I am nearing completion on the Spec Wing prototypes.  I sent another prototype out for testing 2 days ago to Bobby at Thrust FPV.  Both he and Donny plan to assemble, test it, and give feedback.  I am hoping to start producing these in about 2 weeks.  Part of the foam order I picked up yesterday has foam set aside for Spec Wing kits. These FPV wings fall within the specifications listed at the FPVWRA website.Spec Wing

Update

Things were a bit crazy here over the last several weeks.  We had a family emergency which put me behind on a lot of work I need to do with both the foam and other things.  If you didn’t know already, I also have a 1 acre garden and also a wood working business.  We produce primarily Asian vegetables for personal use, however we also sell to people in the Asian community.  My wife returned home to Thailand just as we were harvesting which left the majority of work for me to get everything in before the first hard frost killed everything.  We purchased 10 acres over 1 1/2 years ago which has the 1 acre garden. Eventually we will pay off the 10 acres and have our new workshop and house built out there.  The 10 acres is currently a hay field. The wide open space provides the perfect location for testing new designs and having friends over to fly.

I’m finally back on track with everything.  I still have a few custom back orders to take care of, however I’m back to designing and hoping to have three different planes kits available by the end of November.

2″ EPP and Carbon fiber

I am currently out of the white 2″ EPP.  I had a large order come in that cleaned me out.  I have more on the way and hope to have it back in the store before the end of October.

Also, I am working out a deal to carry Carbon Fiber.  I should have more information about this by the end of the month too.

Thank you to everyone for your business.  Please spread the word about Wind Catcher RC.  I need all the help I can get.
