2019 Prices and shipping
UPS increased shipping charges for 2019 which will effect shipping EPP sheet foam. Recently UPS contacted Wind Catcher RC informing us of an increase in the price to ship foam in 2019. We have no control over shipping costs, however we decided to lower the prices of our foam to help our customers continue to afford EPP sheet foam for their various projects. The 2019 price for foam is lowered by 10% compared to the 2018 prices. We hope this helps and we hope you consider Wind Catcher RC for your future EPP foam and Carbon Fiber.
Please spread the word about Wind Catcher RC.

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.
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 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.

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.
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!
Happy Independence Day! I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday while celebrating our nation’s freedom.
UPS is now available as a choice for shipping. I found that the smaller packages under 6″ tend to be cheaper using USPS, however once we hit around 6″ in thickness UPS seems to be cheaper. This also might vary a bit based on your location/zone. I always have local pickup available too, or if you live close enough, maybe I can meet you somewhere with your order. Contact me for more details.
BTW, I don’t live far from Toledo, so if you are attending the Toledo show in April, I can meet you there too.
I am still working out the details of the Citabria. I hope to finish a prototype of the wings today and tomorrow. If this work out, I’ll have pictures of the wings up here by the weekend.
