OVERVIEW


 

The Sakota can cross country or dice it up with crisp akro figures. The small but potent wing gives it high performance in short take-offs and 120 mph cruise speeds. The tapered wing reduces drag and enhances handling as well as overall performance. A bubble canopy and large under wing windows offer exceptional visibility. Comfort for two in the 37" wide cabin with well upholstered bench seat. A quick build kit with style and sporty looks and handling.

 

Fly aerobatics solo and cross country with 2!

PRICING & ORDER FORM


 

 

TERMS OF PURCHASE


 

THESE TERMS OF PURCHASE REFER TO ALL RANS AIRCRAFT KIT PURCHASES.

 

DEPOSIT
A 50% deposit is required and 100% on Props & Engines, to confirm an order. This initial deposit can be made with a certified check, wire transfer, money order, company check or personal check.



 

FINAL PAYMENT
The balance of your payment is due prior to ship out. RANS will make every effort to contact you plenty of time in advance of the ship out date so that this final payment does not hold up your order. Final payment should be made with a certified check, money order, or a wire transfer.



 

SALES TAX
Sales tax is not added to shipments that are shipped out of the state of Kansas. Shipments within the state of Kansas will be charged sales tax at the rate of the delivery destination. For out of state customers picking up a kit at the factory, the customer must complete a notarized sales tax affidavit that defers sales tax to your state of residence.



 

ENGINES
With the purchase of a RANS kit, you are entitled to buy the Rotax engine directly from RANS. We do our best to keep the price as low as possible. The price will be our published price at the time of purchase.


The warranty period (6 months or first 100 hours whichever comes first) must begin within 1 year of delivery. For many home building projects this is not an adequate time frame to be finished and flying. And even for those folks who plan to finish in a short period of time, unexpected circumstances sometimes change these plans. Order your engine about 12-14 weeks before you will be ready to install it. Customer pays freight charges on all engine shipments, no matter if shipped with the kit or shipped separately later.



 

DELIVERY DATES
Depending upon production demands, delivery dates vary. Please inquire at the time of purchase about current delivery times. Kits (without any pre-built or quick build options) are usually shipped in 8-12 weeks. However, during high demand times this time can run longer. Quick build kit delivery times vary widely and are strictly dependent upon the number and extent of projects already on the schedule. An expected delivery date will be given at the time of order.

 

However, this is not a guarantee and is subject to change.



 

ORDER CHANGES
Our inventory and production emphasis are based on what is ordered. Therefore, it is difficult to change an order once confirmed. Custom made or ordered items cannot be changed without cost. (For example, changing the color scheme after the skins are already sewn.)



 

CANCELED PAYMENTS
Due to custom nature of our product, orders are transferrable, but cancellations are not allowed and will result in loss of deposit.



 

BACKORDERS
We make every effort to send out your order complete. However, experience has shown that this cannot always be the case. Many items we use are highly specialized and many are supplied by only one vendor. When a vendor without warning changes a lead-time from 3-4 weeks to 3-4 months it means we might not have this item in stock. We do send out backorders (not including engines, see #4) at our expense as quickly as we receive them. In some cases back orders are sent F.O.B.



 

MISSING PARTS
We check and re-check and are 99.9% certain that if we say we shipped it, we did. The first task in building your kit is to inventory the parts using the packing list provided. It's your job to keep all parts organized and accounted for upon receiving your kit. We can not provide ìmissingî parts cost free after 60 days.



 

PROPELLERS
Because we deal with several vendors of props (Warp Drive, and Sensenich), all propellers are considered special orders and cannot be returned or exchanged! Because of variations in engines, flying conditions, function of the RPM gauge, variations in the prop itself, and other numerous factors, performance can vary considerably. We will do our best to provide the information you need to order a prop that will do the best job. However, because of variations, we cannot guarantee performance.



 

RETURNED GOODS
A RANS kit aircraft is purchased as a complete kit. The only exceptions are kits sold less engine and less firewall forward. RANS will not accept for credit unused items from the original kit.



 

GUARANTEES
We cannot guarantee continued supply of any items outside scope of our manufacture. This includes, but is not limited to engines, props, instruments, and sensors for instrumentation, wheels, brakes, tires, and so forth.

 



This policy pertains to the purchase of the aircraft kit. Parts and options ordered later will be handled on an individual basis. Any part that is shipped that is incorrect will be exchanged free of charge. However, all returns must be authorized by our Parts Department.

 

RANS Designs, Inc. reserves the right to make changes in prices, specifications, or models, or add improvements at any time without notice or obligation.
