RC Pylon Community,
We are formulating a plan to resume production of the Nelson N-40 motor for use
in 422 and 428, meaning the N-40 would be commercially available again. We have
been machining replacement parts for these motors and are ready to make
the commitment to manufacture complete engines. It will be a large investment
for us to tool up to make all the parts. Before we make this commitment we wish
to determine how the market and contest board will respond if we decide to do
Our plan, is that all parts will be machined at Aero Precision Machine with
Henry Nelson. Also we will be assembling and testing all motors to guarantee
performance standards. Customers will order motors directly from Aero Precision
Machine, we will handle all sales and interfacing with customers. Complete motor
availability would be 4 to 6 months from project start date. The motors will be
priced at $425 each.
For anyone not familiar with Aero Precision here is some back ground
information. We are a machine shop located in NC that has been in business for
20 years. We currently service many industries with a focus on machining parts
for commercial and military aviation,pharmaceutical industries
, and various
components. OurCNC machines
are on the leading edge of technology and are more
then capable to machine N-40 components. Also we have been hosting pylon races
at our flying
field Old Julian Airport and I have been involved with model aviation on and off
Our goals are to:
1. Provide a motor that mirrors the performance and consistency that Henry
Nelson has provided the RC community for the past 20 years.
2. Provide excellent customer service and maintain inventory to meet
customer demand for many years to come.
3. Promote all facets of pylon racing and support the community.
We are taking pre orders for 422 and 428 motors now. If you want motors for the
NATS get your orders in. We will be basing our production numbers on pre order
levels. Place orders by sending email firstname.lastname@example.org
