Default F3a Unlimitted

Has anyone heard from or talked to Chris Moon at F3A Unlimitted over the last two months? I have been trying to reach him since early December. I have left messages on RCU, Emailed him, and called and left messages on his phone? Does anyone know if he is still in business? I need to order some things but want to talk to him first.

Dick,

I ordered goodies from the site four days ago and received the order yesterday; so I know that he is still in business. Also heard from others they have had difficulty getting through to Chris either by phone or email. BTW,hve youtriedthe "contact" dropdown on the website?

Regards,

Mike

I agree, Gary!
On the flip side, when I had my shoulder rebuilt (only slightly more expensive than rebuilding a YS 4-stroke ), I was thinking about flying only an hour or two after regaining consciousness - it was a really nice day that day... what a waste.

Hey All

Chris called me this afternoon and said he is on the mend but really behind on getting new inventory. He said he hoped to get caught up over the next several months. He is feeling better but still doing physical theropy as a result of the car accident.

I hate to hear that.
I hope he does great in his recovery.
It is difficult enough to build a successful business around a customer base as small as our pattern fraternity.
I have been happy to see Chris be successful. It's a real shame to have it slowed down by a car accident.
Good luck Chris

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes. I am slowly mending and the backlog is almost 99% caught up and F3A Unlimited is definitely open for business. We have new shipments of batteries coming in late Feb both the lightweight Power Unlimited ones and some new 35C packs. A container of planes from BJ Craft is leaving shortly for us and will have Monolog 400(new version), Monolog 110 (new version), Monolog 140, Prolog, and Nuance models. More products are on the way from Gator RC as well so we have a lot of new stuff in store for everyone this year - just a little behind schedule due to the accident.

PS- please don't text and drive or talk needlessly on the phone, the guy that hit me was doing that and was barely paying enough attention to put on his brakes for a line of cars waiting at a stop light. Unfortunately I was the last car in that line.

Glad you are recovering Chris. It always sucks when bad things happen to good people.

Cell phones really change the way I think about riding my motorcycle. It was fun on the open roads of Vermont, but now I'm in a 'city' I see people doing the dumbest crap while they drive [&o]

Hi Chris,
Best wishes from all here in the Emerald Isle.
Get well soon.
You need just a little of the 'luck of the Irish'. Then again at least he was'nt flying a 747 or something like that at the time.

Texting while driving completely changes bicycling or jogging along roads. It simply isn't worth your life to do that anymore. A jogger was ran over yesterday here in Atlanta. I stay on the sidewalks no matter what the rules are.

A couple of years ago, we had a kid down here decapitated when he ran his car under a stopped school bus.  Unfortunately, there are no do-overs in life.
