Wind Catcher RC operating as normal.
Starting tonight at midnight, our governor of Michigan issued a stay at home order. Luckily, I run Wind Catcher RC out of our house and work shop behind the house.
Last week in anticipation of something like this happening, I picked up another large order of EPP foam from my supplier. I have #1.3 in white and black, #1.9 in white and black, and #2.8 in black (experimental right now). In the next week or two I will process the foam and have more sheets available in the foam section of Wind Catcher RC (click here).
If you would like custom thickness sheets of EPP, please let me know so I can cut it for you.
UPS stated on their website today that they will continue to pick up and deliver. Here is their statement: “UPS operations are considered to be critical infrastructure by the Department of Homeland Security and will continue to pickup and deliver, even in restricted areas.”
As of the moment I wrote this, USPS did not have any notice about service disruptions in Michigan. Please see USPS for up to date information about deliveries in your area.
Before the pandemic, I worked out of my house and workshop staying at home 95% of the time. My exposure to the public has always been limited, so for me, this is business as usual at home. If you are concerned about the transmission of COVID-19 when receiving things being shipped to you, please see the CDC’s recommendations. You can also research how long the virus stays alive on surfaces.
Shipping your items out might be delayed by a few days due to unforeseen circumstances here at our house, workshop, and in Michigan. I will do my best to get orders out as soon as possible.
Stay safe, wash your hands, stay hygienic, and we’ll all get through this eventually.
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.
