Quoted from Hammerhead:

While you're swapping out your fighter planes, can someone be so kind as to provide the missing dimensions in the attached sketch so that I can fabricate a mounting bracket for my own fighter plane.
Much thanks!

Which ones do you need? All of them? I could take some pics with a tape measure next to it if you like? I can do that this weekend....

Thanks, just the metal bracket that supports the fighter plane.

I know that. You have a million measurements in your sketch. Which of those measurements do you need?

#704 1 year ago

I would like to thank those of you who made payment last night. Some of you even included a tip which was very much appreciated. I'm still missing 3 payments. I would like to ship this Saturday. Just a friendly reminder that I need all payments to be made before I head to the post office tomorrow morning. I'm shipping all or none. I don't plan to make several trips to the post office, sorry I just don't have the time. Please check your PMs! Thanks!

Just my 2 cents but I would think it would be fair to ship all of those that have paid and make anyone who hasn't paid wait until batch #2 is going to be shipped. No big deal to me as I'm in batch #2, but if I were one of the people whose planes were going to be shipped on Saturday and now they aren't because someone else didn't pay, I wouldn't be happy. Just sayin....

Yes Glen, I know that. I work Monday-Saturday. I requested Saturday OFF just to ship the planes. So it's not as easy as you might think for me. I can't make it to the post office during the week because they close at 4:30 and I get off work until 5:00. I work on Saturday too. This is the reason why I wanted to ship all of them at the same time.

I never charged a penny for my services until now that the planes are ready to ship. I do expect payment to be made in a timely manner. I've been posting about this for a couple of days now. I'm sure all payments will be made by the end of the day. If not, we'll see what we can do.

All of them. I need to make a bracket from scratch and have nothing to go on.

Believe me George... I'm 100% with you! That's why I was saying they can wait until batch #2 is done. Tough noogies.

That might be a bit cruel don’t you think?

No worries, only one left to pay and he already contacted me. All good! Planes take off tomorrow!

#715 1 year ago

Before I forget: Guys be careful with the wires. It’s solid wire, not stranded. Solid wire is less flexible and can easily snap off on the ends if you are not careful.

#716 1 year ago

Made it to the post office!

#717 1 year ago

All packages shipped! Will PM tracking information soon

George, you are a beast. Thank you for your effort!

You...you may have changed the world.

#723 1 year ago

very excited about the planes! i am deciding which flashers to hook these up to and had a question for yall. I just recently got my idol/ruins flasher working and wanted to see if it is working properly. the only times it flashes for me is the following:
1. when deciding if you want the superball or not
2. when dogfight is going it flashes about every 5 seconds or so
3. when i hit a lit right ramp and it feeds back to right flipper (only when the gate to POA is CLOSED)

that is all i have noticed. Next time people play can you keep an eye on this and let me know if you notice more. thank you!!

#724 1 year ago

Batch 2 folks, allow me a day ot two before I continue working on your planes. This last all-nighter I pulled, hit me really hard and I’ve been in and out of bed since. I need to recharge my batteries!

Batch 1 folks, all Tracking numbers have been sent. Please track it and don’t allow the mailman to take the box back to the station just because nobody was there to receive the package or because your gate was closed.

For the most part, They won’t leave big boxes sitting outside and they just take it back to the station.

I need for you to open them up (carefully) the day you receive them. Don’t leave them inside the box any longer than necessary. There’s a lot of glued and moving parts to these planes.

Any questions? Let me know, I’m here to help

The flasher should go off when you lock a ball too

Tiger moth list: It's time to make your deposit. Please look for my PM. Thanks!

#731 1 year ago

I've been waiting by the front door today looking for my planes to fly in

#733 1 year ago

FYI, Any payments including the deposit for the Tiger moth are to be made friends and family only! If you don't trust me, PM me and I'll cancel your order. Sorry guys, I spend too many hours working on these planes.

Some sent their tiger moth deposits via goods and services and paypal is requesting the tracking numbers which I don’t have. Deposits have been refunded

#734 1 year ago

Hey Guys... it was me in Batch #2, who yesterday, sent George the $$$ via PayPal and selected the wrong way to send it. My Bad!

George, again I'm sorry... I don't use PP and really didn't know there was a difference

Planes landed and look great!

Didn’t totally unpackage everything but does the fighter have two sets of connectors? Still bundled up.

Anyone do the install yet? What was the easiest and cleanest looking?

PSW,

Yes, it has the LED harness connector and the propeller wires.

Please unpack the planes....carefully

#738 1 year ago

My planes came today, and wow were these ever perfectly wrapped with care. I can really tell kornfreak28 put love and care into each and every one. I don't have time to install them until this weekend at the earliest, but I was able to carefully unpack them and move them into my arcade room. They look stunning! I can't wait to put these in!

Great to hear that! Can you confim the chrome in the biplane propeller looks OK? The chrome is the only part that wasn’t clear coated. It turns into an ugly grey...

#740 1 year ago

Got my planes today. Man they look great. Chrome looks good, still nice and shiny. Very carefully packed. I'll be installing them in the next couple of days. These are gonna look great in my game. I'll post pictures soon.

Great to hear that! I’m so glad I went for the plastic container now. Tiger moth will look even better! Thanks for your feedback!

#742 1 year ago

For the most “action” for your planes, connect them to the ruins flasher. That seems to be the flasher that spins the propeller more often than any other flasher. The dogfight flasher is OK but doesn’t get that much action. The right ramp flasher is my least favorite.

#743 1 year ago

For batch 2 my approach will be a little different. For batch 1, I did all the planes at once and shipped them all at once (for practical reasons) disregarding the order people got on the list.

That will no longer be the case. Now, I will go down the list and make 2 orders at a time. Once those 2 orders are done, I’ll ship them out and move on to the next 2 and so on and so forth. That, in the long run, will save time and even the guy at the very bottom of the list should get his planes a lot sooner. I’ve already started work on the first two orders.

If you are on batch 2 and you ordered a tiger moth, I will try my very best to ship all 3 planes at the same time. Tiger moth will ship in it’s own box....yeah, it’s that special

If you are in batch 3 and you ordered a Tiger moth, consider yourself now at the bottom of batch 2

There’s some people that are still pending the tiger moth deposit. FYI, If you fail to make the deposit in the next few days, you will be replaced. I’ve gotten so many requests for a tiger moth so, that won’t be a problem at all. Thanks!

#744 1 year ago

Got 'em installed today, very happy with them. Only thing I wish I could improved is to have the propellers spin in short bursts for a second or two instead of jerky movements when the flashers flash quickly. I wonder if incorporating a capacitor might help.

[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Where did you hooked them to? Which connector?

#746 1 year ago

I don’t have that issue at all. No capacitor is needed.

#747 1 year ago

Some flashers will only give you very short bursts, some will give you full spins. You must also have a snug fit inside the connector. Did you use the ruins flasher?

#748 1 year ago

Who here can post a video for me?

My planes arrived today and they look awesome.

Thanks
