Aeroworks did not manufacture the planes. Some anonymous factory in China did that. Aeroworks imported and sold them.

As for parts, there is always the classifieds here, lots of other forums and ebay.

The company in China was called All-lu. I have heard that they are also out of business, but even if they are not, and if they had parts, which they probably don't, the cost of shipping from China would be prohibitive. Finding a new kit or used airplane on ebay or an rc site would be cheaper.

I just find it hard to believe that no one is buying this company up an continuing supplying us with the awesome aircraft that was provided. And no parts to fix the ones we all did purchase.

I had heard that the factory in China where Aeroworks had their planes made was in serious in trouble or even forced to close. I don't have any privileged information, but I know for a fact that the last longshoreman strike really put the hurt on Aeroworks as a company, I don't believe they ever fully recovered from that. They (Aeroworks) paid for their product, and that product was manufactured, shipped, and then sat where they were not able to have it delivered to them for months, all because some jerk longshoremen wanted to use their (and many other businesses) time money and product as a bargaining chip

I think it was case business got so bad they had to move on. I know my LHS use to sell a lot of them but he hasn't even had an inquiry in over 2 years.
