Time to move some stuff I'm not flying.

The first to go is the Hobby Lobby Executive Jet with mechanical retracts. I have clocked this over 80mph. It flies great, and glides forever.

My biggest problem with this is even at 80mph, it looks like it should be going so much faster. It's had one rough landing that ripped out the main landing gear once. Not so much a problem with the gear or landing, as it was the wood support that wasn't glued very well at the factory.

There is a small piece of foam near the edge of the aileron that was broke off on that landing. It has been glued back in place. There is also the usual hanger rash associated with foamies.

As indicated on the included battery, I only have 5 flights on this.

It includes:
Hobby Lobby Executive Jet
HL executive jet retracts.
2 E-flite 3800kv BL420 outrunners
2 Hobby King 40a ECS's
Turnigy 30-40c 3S4500
4 Turnigy 1160a servos (2 for retracts, 1 rudder, 1 elevator)
2 HXT900 servos (ailerons)

I think that's it. I'm well over $325 into this, even if you're using the "on sale" price the plane is now listed at. I'll let this one go for $200. That's just the price of the plane and motors.

Let me know if you want more/different photos.
