GWS and the MiniBipe Go the Way of the White Rhino

Posted by Jodi A. on 5/3/2018 to Planes

SlowBipe Air has announced that they are discontinuing production of the MiniBipe. There are currently no plans to produce any other designs. As of this writing, we have just a few left and no landing gear. We are currently exploring opportunities with other plane kit suppliers.

With no warning, it appears that GWS has finally gone belly up. We placed an order in early April and communicated with our contact there, who assured us that our order would ship in a couple of days. Since then, we have received neither an invoice nor any response to emails. We tried contacting them by phone but both numbers are out of service. Obviously, we will have to discontinue carrying their products. We will sell out of what we have and seek out other suppliers of lightweight propellers.

We will keep you updated as we get in new products. Follow us on Facebook for up-to-the-minute announcements.

Consider replacing the MiniBipe with the Fancy Foam EPP EzFly , it is an EXCELLENT plane for beginners ... and has a protected motor/prop . I'm guessing Mike would love to have another distributor .

That is sad about GWS, they had in their prime, so many really great planes and products...I horribly miss the loss of the Slow Stick planes and now the props... Should leave some elbow room for a new company to bring these products back.
