First I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Also a reminder that today is the last day to get the discount of 10% off on any of the individual packages or the complete kit. Several of you have taken advantage of this discount already! Also just to let you know that you have 60 days to receive the shipment.
Changes in Individual Packages
Starting tomorrow the BD-4C will be sold in five (5) packages. Those packages are as follows: Fuselage Package, Landing Gear Package, Wing Package, Control System Package and the Finishing Package. We have changed some of the packages around for several reasons. One for example is that the skins used to be included in the fuselage package and as we all know they are not really needed until the end of the assembly process. The skins just sat in the box, so now they are included in the Finishing Package. Another example; the Wing Package now comes with the ailerons and the flaps included. When assembling the wings it is easier if you have the brackets for the aileron and flaps to install them at that time. But the wing tips are now included in the Finishing Package, which is again an item that you install at the end. We will be changing the price list on the website in the next week. However if you go to the Bill of Materials on the website you will find what the changes are for packages except for the Finishing Package.
Update Mod Service
We are offering a new service to update BD-4's at our shop. We have a customer in right now with an older version BD-4 that was flying, that the customer is having our shop install the new landing gear box with the S-Ply struts, and we are converting this aircraft over from the conventional gear to a taildragger version. We are also building and installing the new all metal wing for his aircraft. If any of you are interested in this service please give us a call or email us and we would be happy to give you a quote.
Photos of our Facility
Lately I have got some requests from BD-4 Enthusiasts to include some photos of our facility. So starting this month I will start including photos. This month is a photo of what is included in the Fuselage Package. The only items that are including in the package that are not pictured are the firewall, the floor and the center section. The firewall and the floor are shipped directly to the customer from our Vendor. The center sections are stored in a different part of our facility. The service that we used for this Newsletter only allows so much space for pictures therefore I can only post a couple at a time. I thougth that this one is a good one to start with because you can now see all the individual angles that come precut and predrill that comprises the Fuselage Package.
We have a good supply of the BD-4 Hats with the LED lights left which would make a great Christmas present!! They are on sale for $20.00. We also have the BD-4 T-Shirts available and those are on sale for $10.00. Starting November 24th through December 31st we have a special running on the individual packages or the complete aircraft package; it is 10% OFF. However this does end December 31st, so get your order in soon!!! We now also offer financing on the fuselage package. The interest rate is 5% and if anybody is interested they can give Stacey a call or send an email.
