World Record Attempts and other information

We are nearly finished moving into our new workshop space.  We are unpacking and organizing our inventory onto new storage shelves so packing your orders will be faster than before.  We will also have more space to increase our inventory.  After I get back from Denver, I’ll process more EPP foam and replenish our stock and keep our inventory up so you don’t need to wait so long for our next batch.  I apologize for the inconvenience and delays in getting our EPP back up on the website.

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Fun Fly August 5th.  Overall it was a great success with quite a few people who showed up to fly in our community of RC aircraft.  Thank you to those who demonstrated with their special aircraft like the turbine powered Pilatus, sail plane, large helicopters, and others.  Congratulations to all of our raffle winners.  And hope you enjoyed the taco bar for dinner.

This year Wind Catcher RC sponsored several activities and aircraft.  Another sponsored build we did was Ben Harber’s A-26.  Wind Catcher RC cut out the entire plane for Ben.  He designed it and built it.  We also provided the batteries, carbon fiber, and some other parts.  Ben is hoping to maiden the plane very soon.  Good luck Ben!!

We have also been working closely in secrecy with Joshua Finn from J&H Aerospace for over 9 months on a project.  We are attempting multiple world record attempts through several organizations with an aircraft.  The aircraft is already built and test flown a few times for trimming.  It’s truly amazing!  More information on this after our event and we can report on real numbers and what this all means.  Until then, we’ll allow you to speculate based on the 3 (2) view found below.  Wish us luck in Denver!!

Summer 2020 Updates

Wind Catcher RC is moving! Hurray!

We are excited that we'll be expanding our work space by over 4x. The papers will be signed tomorrow for our new property which will give us 10 acres, three out buildings for the business, and a larger house than what we currently live in. The location for the new property is only a few minutes away from our current house, so the move will be fairly easy, however there is a significant amount of things we need to move. There are several improvements we need to do to the new space before we move in.

Out of Stock?

You might have noticed the website is out of stock on several items. These will be replenished as soon as we finish our move and get settled into the new location. I have a trailer currently completely full of foam that will require processing down to the needed thickness. It is our hope to have all of this done by the middle of September. If you are in urgent need of foam currently not available on the website, please contact me to see if I am able to get it cut for you and shipped out. All colors and densities in larger blocks are sitting in storage or in my trailer.

Any order placed from the website will be fulfilled as quickly as possible and shipped out within 2 business days of the order.

Carbon Fiber

A new order for Carbon Fiber is being placed with our supplier by the end of the week.  I hope to have this order here by October. Carbon Fiber has been taking a while to get here from my supplier due to shipping difficulties because of the virus causing fewer flights from China. If you are in need of a size we currently do not list, please contact me to see if I can get it into the next order.

New Kit - The Gladiator

The Gladiator is the next kit we'll have available soon.  It is currently being beta tested and in the hands of several people. This plane is being designed to be rugged and a great second plane for the newer pilots. The Gladiator is a flying wing with a wide flight envelope to allow for slow flights up to 60 mph. It will fly on a 3s – 1300mah battery on an APC 7x5 or 7x6 prop. The build process should be fairly easy for the new builder and a breeze for those who have built foam planes in the past. We are building this plane be strong enough to withstand full contact combat.  While no plane is indestructible, the Gladiator should hold up well to abuse and easy to repair.
