you know I've been amused by the header of this thread for some time.
when you consider the absolutely critical nature of the things I'm
damned if I'd be buying the cheaper ones if they were available.

they are the most non redundant parts of an aircraft that uses them.
buy the best, you are seldom around for a warranty claim.


I am amused by those who equate price with quality. )))

every time I pass up a $4 set of chinese drills for a $17 set of
sutton or frost drills I too am amused by those who believe that
quality can be had for $4. (australian $) and that drills made in mild
steel will be ok if tungsten coated.

in aviation though you get mightily sick of the price impost of
insurance and those who prey on the acceptance of it.
a $us17 spruce 4" tailwheel regularly retails in australia for $aus80.
$aus1 = $us0.72

As well as those who just use "Product Liability" as an excuse to gouge
customers. To wit - the price of new Cessnas. Adjusted for inflation, should
be around $60,000 U.S. Congress has already passed significant tort reform,
but the price is $160,000.

Truth is, they make more profit per dollar of investment building Citations.
Liability has little to do with their decisions.

Default High Price of Flying Wires?

Wondering why the price of a set of Flying wires for most HB Bi Planes cost
3k or more? Not trying to argue, just wondering what drives the high cost.

Thanks- J. Wolfer






Hello. I have a set of flying wires that may suffice and I will sell them for
considerably less than you have been quoted. It's worth a shot anyway. If you
are interested please provide dimensions including maximum length to this
newsgroup and I'll see if what I have will work for you.


try Russ Ward www.vintageaero.com in New Zealand. They have been making flying wires for over 10 years and have an excellent track record.
