Rapor Sales
I wonder how many Raptor sales Ace/TT has lost already because of the parts problem.

the Wasp - might be right
If HiroboEric does not want to say any news about Ace on this board, then it has to be bad news. There wouldn't be any problem if it was good news.

Oh well, time to retire my Raptor and buy a Sceadu.

Funny how so many are crying about parts availability... so what is the part that no one can find this time??

There are even retailers posting on this thread that they have the parts!

That link on Ron Lund's site is what.... 4 months old??

Looks like alot of people are looking for a reason to change to another brand of heli. So, just go ahead and get what you want people!

I like my Rappys, they treat me well, and I have never had to look too hard for parts.

I'm sure ACE is fine! Everyone gets behind sometimes. Is there anyone out there that has not had to wait for an X-Cell part??? Sheesh!

It's flying and crashing season
I think the parts aren't available because we are all in the middle of the prime flying season and there is alot of crashing going on! Supply can't keep up with demand.

When you do find parts buy 2 or 3 at a time - that way you won't get stuck.

Ace
The truth about Ace (as best as I can tell), and I CAN speak for Eric is that the current domestic demand for the Raptor parts has caught Ace by surprise and that Taiwan could not produce enough parts in the short amount of time (and get it shipped) required to keep up with the world wide demand. Raptor sales have grown, as has this hobby over the last year.

A Fury is a good example of what demand can do to parts supply, especially if you are ill prepared.

We deal with Ace on a day to day basis and I have no concerns of them going out of business.. Not going to happen. Growing pains perhaps, and an acquisition by an off shore company (TT) can pose problems in it self, especially in a growth spurt.

Parts are coming available, but there is also the responsibility of the dealer to order enough parts (when available). Demand and intuition will teach us....

Best Regards,
