FS: Sioux RTF "full-house" Sailplane

FS - Sioux 2.6 model, Sailplane RTF! $350

Call it your light air sloper, or medium air ripper. Either way it's cheap for a lot of fun. I fly before the zagi's at Torrey Pines on the light days. Just put in a little camber and you're up and away. Or crow 'till you land with negative ground speed.

Valenta has been known to offer extremely high quality sailplanes from the czech republic. for details visit: http://www.valentamodel.cz/index-aj.htm

It's a fullhouse sloper/hi start/winch plane (ailerons, flaps, rudder and elevator). Two hooks on belly with added fiberglass patch inside fuse. D-Box construction. I'm selling it because I'm building (funding) a new plane, plus i have 4 slopers.

The Sioux flies awesome, thermals great and is as stable as a true 3M. The two piece wing connects with a dual composite wing rod/spar system. The foil is fast but slows down very nice with the crow or when using camber in flight. Last week I did three hand catches in a row. The fuse is rock solid so it can take a ballast tube for the windier days on the slope. It has a beautifully molded rudder and upswept molded tips.

Also Included: 5 hs81's, 1 hs55 (elev), 1-8 channel hitec rcd rx (dual poliarity for JR/Air/Fut/Hitec), 1200mAh NiMh, charge switch, servo extensions etc. Save lot's of $$$ and time when you buy this ready to fly model. Charge battery, insert your crystal and you're flying.

airfoil: MH32 (inner wings) and RG15 (outer wings) AUW is 43oz.

FAQ's:
1) this model has been crashed once (tony!) and professionally repaired.
2) the entire fuse/rudder is one continuous unit (fully molded)
3) the only difference in this and the electric version is, the e-version's fuse is cut to accomodate the spinner/prop assembly.
4) shipping will be around $25 (+ or -) plus insurance.
