I'm situated in Norway, and have struggeled ALOT to get hold of the acrylic tubes needed in the openrov build.
plexiglas-shop charges about 100euros for a single set of parts included shipping!
mcmaster-carr wont ship to norway
localy in norway: extremely expensive, and you only get full 2meter lenghts, and an astronomic cost for cutting.
I found www.upag.eu after some googling, they have very low price on the acrylic, and they gave me a quote of 2euros per cut and 40euros for shipping (up to 30Kg) for 40euro.
But you must buy full 2meter lenghts that they cut for you.
So are anyone interessted in doing a group buy?
i dont need 10pcs of main tubes for myself, and certainly not many prop shrouds.
I would take no handling charge, and there would be full disclosure of all involved costs.(facebook/google group for all involved persons)
because of extreme shipping charges in norway to other contries, i would initaly limit this group-buy to within Norway. but i'm open to check specific charges to diffrent contries.
i've attached their quote to me. my initial idea is similar to the kit with regards to the main hull and the prop shrouds. but i've changed to a bit bigger tubes for batteries, and put in a rod of pvc to machine battery-caps.1659-Angebot_331243.pdf (71.6 KB)
