About Flutter wing tabs...
« on: January 17, 2021, 04:39:15 AM »
I was wondering if there's a demand for the little coloured plastic tags for the Flutter Pony wings so they fit properly in their mechanism or if I should just hold onto them for a later project? Thanks for your help, all!

I wouldn't get rid of them!  I am thinking about using a 3D printer to make wings, those tabs might come in handy...

I would hold them for later, don't toss 'em. I don't think there's much demand for them but if you have a lot of them may be worth throwing online for cheap/auction.

I'm not an advocate for repro wings, but in terms of the real ones, it is actually easier to fit second edition wings even to a pony with first edition slots than try to fix the original wings to the original slots. I would still keep them or sell them rathere than throw them, but the second edition wings have a different kind of wing fixing that makes it easier to add or remove wings, and that means the tabs are different and not coloured.

It's much easier to repair second edition wings as well. All my flutters have real wings, but some have repaired second year wings.

TBH as much as I love flutters, I really hate the first edition fixings. You basically just have to look at them for them to break.
