Hi everyone,


THE FUTURE

Recently we sold the last of our assembled Silver Spring arms. We are currently manufacturing a new batch of 50 arms that will become available within 6 to 9 weeks.

There will be a substantial discount on our current price for those customers who order a new arm prior to 15th September 2008.

Unfortunately there must be a price rise with the new arms caused by the increased costs we are all experiencing.

At the moment we have one demo Steadyrig ?Silver Spring? arm available to fly, this arm is currently in the United States.

We will attach some photos here of the ?work in progress? of the new batch of arms (after we trim them down).


THE PAST

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who showed me consideration during the last 18 months when I had some personal matters that took me away from the business for a while. I was still here for the most urgent of sales and support issues, but for the most part the business was idling.

For those of you who were not aware, last year my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer?s Disease which progressed quickly and she required full time care up until her death from cancer. A considerable amount of my time was needed during her treatment, and then after her passing, to finalise her personal matters.

I have also had to devote my time to my wife Elizabeth who was diagnosed with breast cancer late last year. Elizabeth has had surgery and has now completed her chemo and radiation treatments. All of the doctors involved in her treatment are very happy with her progress and for now it is back to a ?normal? life.

This means that Steadyrig is now operating fully and we will be here to answer all your questions and attend to all your needs.

Thank you again for all your interest, patience and support in the past.

Regards,
Hugo.

There has been strong demand for a number of our components, some of these are in production now and I will be posting updates and photos here as production progresses. In reference to the Top Stage I will keep you posted.

Hugo.
