John: Knowing your dyslexia issues, I assume you meant cross-country cruising, & not cross-country cursing?I love your products and you Jim, and if there is anything I can do to help you succeed, just let me know.
I may not know gyro's but I do know business and I hope this helps...
I’m willing to bet $5K if you asked the creditors in this suit and all the customers why he did not deliver or pay them back on time they will all tell you, that he is not a thief or dishonest in anyway.
They will all tell you it’s because he keeps making changes to improve his products until he feels they are perfect before he will deliver anything.
Because of his perfectionist nature Jim products are all the best, never heard anyone say anything different.
Being a perfectionist too, I understand, it was the hardest life lesson to learn to ignore my nature of it has to be perfect to “Sell it to those customers as soon as the product meets their BASIC needs and sell version 2,3,4 which will meet even more customers’ needs with each improvement”
Over the past 7 years answering the phone for PRA the only complaint I’ve ever heard about Jim and Sport Copter is he’s late delivering because he keeps making improvements.
The San Diego court often appointed me as a receiver in bankruptcies or reorganization. I became the professional management and made several of the companies profitable by forcing the owner to sell what he has, as is, to those customers that the product will meet their needs.
This is just an example and may not be what he’s currently improving.
My best advice would be:
In this case I would survey the customers with deposits asking are you going to use the M2 for mustering requiring much more power solution or for cross country cursing? If the 915iS works for cross country then we would finish all those customers with what works for them. And take new deposits for all products you can deliver today with a 915iS. Then use that profit from the 915iS's to develop the 2nd mustering version and deliver them went it meets their basic needs. Then start working on version 3 of the mustering version.
