FINALLY found some time to get dusty and get this puppy finished. I still need to install the battery, tailwheel and aileron servos, but other than that, she's ready to go...
Cylcon Mini Elite (400 watts at 78g!! :eek
Jeti Spin 44
E-Power 2200mah 3s 20C lipo
HS65HB's on ailerons
HS81 on elevator
HS81MG on Rudder (set up for pull-pull)
Covered entirely in Microlite with GP Smoke trim tape
Cowl was painted with 21st Century paints
Haven't had a chance to weigh her yet. I'll get that done as soon as I get the rest of the guts in it.
It's PUNK in drublik. An album by NOFX in the exremely early nineties. It's also a play on "drunk in public". Having been in the college bar biz for over 17 years and growing up on punk music, I could relate
It's not PUNKIN!! That's something you call your 4 year old daughter. It's Punk, or Brian
#2. ARE YOU A HOBBY SHOP?
NO! I make carbon fiber landing gear for a living. www.rcsupergear.com
I just trade a lot. I do use my position in the hobby business to get dealer pricing on a few things, but I don't buy large enough quantity to get that with most companys. I'll always try to help you guys out on a deal whenever possible.
#3. DO YOU FLY??
YES, LIKE A MANIAC!! I've been addicted to this hobby for 16 years now
I've got everything from micro brushless to 35% Scale. Speed, EDF and 3D are my things
#4. DO YOU BUILD??
YES, again, I love to build. I have a good 75+ kits under my belt and consider myself to be an experienced builder.
Nothing beats balsa and fiberglass
Please don't be intimidated by this. I only put this in because of a very few problem members I've dealt with in my 1000's of transactions here. If you're one of the good guys (as the majority of you are), you can probably just skip it. Thanks
#1. DELIVERY TIMES - I can only ship once or twice a week, so PLEASE DON'T FREAK OUT if you don't see your item in 7 days. If I receive payment right after a trip to the PO, you can most certainly add a few days to the delivery date. Sorry, I have a real business, and that comes first...
#2. SHIPPING METHODS - Unless stated in my posts, I ship small stuff via 1st class and larger stuff via Priority Mail or FedEx. If you have a problem with this, please make this clear in your offer. I will ship anyway you like but I will also pass on the costs to you.
#3. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SELL TO WHOM I CHOOSE. I will usually work on a first come first serve basis, but I reserve that right in special circumstances. I WILL ALWAYS HONOR MY WORD.
#4. I am always willing to entertain offers, but if you ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS or HAGGLE, please don't expect to be the first considered just because you were the first to contact me. As soon as somebody says "I'LL TAKE IT", the item is sold. I certainly don't mind answering questions, but a quick sale is what I'm really looking for.
I absolutely hate haggling, but still feel free to make offers, ya never know. I rarely get my actual asking price, so it does pay off.
Okay, so I get a hard time for using a sailplane tray. I don't even own a sailplane
I gotta say, this is the most comfortable flying I've ever done. I retrained myself for 3 finger flying about a year and half ago and haven't regretted it a bit. So much more control and "feel" as to where my sticks are.
Now that I've found the spacebox, I'm getting spoiled. My Tx seems heavy now since I never have to hold it anymore!
