Aztech

Hello all, my name is Grant. Azhar was a good friend and I have taken over Aztech Aeromodels to keep it going in his memory. Was just informed of this forum thread and will try to continue it as best as I can.

Product suggestions

I am looking for feedback on new product suggestions or current product improvements.

One thought I had was longer turnbuckles on the Secraft wire tensioners. Have had complaints (also had it happen to myself once) of the pulling out of the ball links.

What are your thoughts?

I didn't care for the fine threads seacraft has on their turnbuckles. That's the problem I had with ball links pulling out.

"Some" of the Secraft turnbuckle threads are undersize on the o.d. .......I've had both, those that were ok & those that were not......those of the proper o.d. seen to work just fine......the others, not so much.......Azhar was aware of this, as he & I had discussed the issue.....

Thanks guys. Going to check my stock this weekend. You are right that it is the thread size that makes the difference. Definitely have noticed a drop in quality control lately. It really waivers from batch to batch. Will keep you posted on what I can find out from them. May look into getting my own made as well.

Thanks for the well wishes tande.

I like the 3.5 and 4 Flywheelz, but the tires are terribly short lived. A couple of weeks of summertime flying, and raw foam is exposed. If more durable replacement tires were available, I would gladly purchase them

Couldn't agree more fellas. Wheels are great but the tire part leaves something to be desired. Rest assured I am working on that issue.

Does anyone know if the new EF 95" wings will fit in the 25% Spot-on bags?
It would be ideal, but I am uncertain... The plane is closer to 30% in size.

I like the looks of the 25% much better than the 30% square bag.

Couldn't agree more on the looks thing. Unfortunately they are too small for the 95" wings. 75 - 80" is the largest they can handle.

You may want to look into 35% wing bags. i think those wings would be pretty big for even 30% class bags.

Unfortunately those are no longer made.

What a bummer... I have favored SpotOn bags over all others, I wish they still made the 35%
