Apex have gone bust ie they are in Liquidation. Having said that, they wound by voluntarily (see company's house website). Perhaps they may resurrect themselves or the Liquidator has stock to sell.

Spoke to Tim last week. He does pick up his messages . (can take a few days though). He has produced excellent decals for me in the past

I have two spare kits. Happy to sell one if any one wants to build one . May also be able to lay my hands on a used OS 48/52 four stroke to go with it.  Please PM.

Well it did bring a smile to make up for a rather overcast Monday (not a favourite day!)

Anything special about it?

Just noticed a Laser 75 on Ebay ( it does come with a Super Tiger carb) for a mere £350 (or best offer!)

Not too sure how to show a link to it.

David. Having gone through a similar scenario , you have made a good decision. I have very much enjoyed the magazine "under your helm" or should I say with your hands on the stick and rudder. Wish you all the very best and hopefully will look forward to the odd jottings from you in the mag. Take care and all the very best.

Very sorry to hear that David. Annoying thing is lack of communication and then having to go through the hassle of Paypal dispute, then waiting 10 days to be resolved prior to getting a refund!

21/05/2018 14:49:08

Paypal have confirmed that they are refunding my payment. (Still no response to my subsequent six emails and contact form via their site .Such a real shame that it had to come to this , especially as there are such few model shops about. From my own experience Apex Models are to be best avoided .

Bob sent you PM

60 will nearly prop hang on the 6 S . Ive actually flown mine off the ground and carried out some pretty basic aero's on a duff motor . Which having stuck it on the watt meter was reading 35W per lb! So to answer your question . I don't think you will have too much of an issue with a .46 . It should give you all the fun with slow grace . Might even go vertical ! wink Take care.

Just been looking at your proposed motor . Cant see much info on the net on it. I'm using the Eflite Power 60 470KV on 16x8 APCE . Pulls about 1300W on sub 75 amps. Let me know if you want pics etc (I cant seem to upload those but could email them to you )

Hello Bob. No real issues re the electric conversion kit from Ripmax. Mounts were fine but you may need to tailor to your motor for fit. I'm using the standard Ripmax bits, with exception of having to widen the hatch area to fit my 6s 5000's . Worth making a copy of the battery tray as easily misplaced . I changed the captive bolt to 6mm (only because i had loads of  nylon screw/bolts . Had two so far and both have been firm favorites.

yes V Funny!

I must admit going into panic mode on first reading about the demise of Solarfilm on this forum and pretty much bought at least ten years of supply . Wonder if I could have my body wrapped in any unused Solartex . Might save on the cost of a coffin!

They have royally cheesed me off and I will be adding my views to Yell and Yelp too (I should have read those beforehand!). I should add that I do understand if mistakes are made ie if the item was out of stock and the website had not been updated. I chased up a week after the order was made to enquire to its whereabouts. I got an apology for the delay (no reason given)  and advised it was being posted first class. Emails sent again subsequently with no back at all. . The rest as they say is history!

However on the plus note and having got fed up off with no response from Apex (supposed 48 hours to respond advice had elapsed by several working days) . I ordered the same item via Nexus yesterday afternoon and it arrived today,hooray for Nexus! A very different experience to Apex. I have instituted a "claw back" of funds and hope Apex will pull their finger out and refund my money.

Regret still nothing. Tried ringing . Phone picked up and put down ! No response to emails/ contact via Apex's website. Have asked for full refund . I have managed to find another at Nexus. Hopefully that at least will be with me tomorrow.

So very disappointed.
