Niether Draganfly not the club have any plans to get these made at the moment but it is something that perhaps we should be looking at. nPattern making can now be done for about £500 by laser scanning and 3d printing. The casting is not expensive, perhaps £30 but machining is still not cheap, perhaps £70 - £100 each, based on a qty of 10. Higher quantity of course = reduced costs. Primary cases for Slopers have been made in recent years by at least 4 parties, so we ought to be able to make some of the more common ones. Presumably the inners are required as well. Doug Walker has made a pattern and a prototype casting for the 1937-58 SQ4 case but I don’t have any costings for that. Really it needs someone desperate enough to pick up the ball and run with it…..
