MG kites makes the designs for the products.
Most of the products are not produced by MG kites but by specialized companies.
For example for the weldings we use a company that is specialized in roll cages for all kind of cars and also make trikes for paragliding.
These products must be made with high accuracy.
MG kites has made around 230 kitebuggys and among these buggies we had about 8 downtubes (Aero model) that had defects on the weldings.
To give an indication this is 3,47 %.
Of course this is not good and not allowed. It is not known what went wrong but from a certified we may not expect this.
The customers that contacted us with these defects we offerd some solutions.
Think of replacement, repair or some compensation for own repair.
Not all customers accepted our support or solutions, we regret this.
For the future downtubes we took some actions and we accepted some support from a welding institute.
Here below you can see some checks of a new downtube.
It got two extra plates in the upper angle to give some reinforcement and extra surface for welding.
From a series of 13 we cut 4 downtubes to check the weldings.
Here some pictures of the results.
We hope that we informed you that we do take care for our products and that we aspire for better products.
