Flying and tail wires

Postby HC85 » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:29 am

Okay, so I am getting real close to needing flying and tail wires......Ouch!

Is there anyone else wanting to order them soon?

I guess if 5 or 6 folks order them, there is a discount?

Please give a shout out if anyone would like to pop soon for the wires, or has info on discounts etc.

Thanks!

Yes, 5 was the minimum to get the discount. Steen Aero is the US distubutor so you would work through them. Historically the discount ran 800-1,000. You'd have to get in touch with Steen to see what the current prices are. They have all the Hatz specs so you just need to specify CB1 or Classic.

Give Steen a call and tell them what you want to do and they'll help you out. Good folks.

Thanks for that information Doug! Great to know!

I will surely get in touch with Steen.

I plan on ordering the wires within the next 6 months at least.

If anyone would like to get in on a group order for the flying and tail wires, please post! My email is rfs1260@yahoo if folks want to use that.

Thanks !

Rick,
Don't forget about Vintage Aero in New Zealand http://www.vintageaero.com
He supplies to the local market and I think he may have advertised on Biplane forum.
His wires are on a Sopwith Snipe flying here.
Cheers

Roger that, I will be asking them for their price as well.

So far I have (2) folks and a "maybe" for an order. I hope there are more committed builders out there! I have yet to post on the Biplane Forum.....I'd better do that too.

Thanks!
