XP-4/4.5 DLG- RTF-champion pedigree- super nice!

I have sold a lot of DLGs on RcGroups, but this one takes the cake. This is one of the best condition and best assembled DLG's I have had the pleasure to sell. This sailplane is owned by a local pilot, Dick Proseus. I am selling it for him.

For those of you who have been around sailplanes on the East Coast may know that this guy is a serious R/C nut and TD, 2M, and HLG pilot from WAY back. He's ranked 6th on the ESL league for handlaunch this year. You can often find him in the winner's circle at contests up and down the East Coast.

"Why does all this matter?" you say.

Well when Mr. P puts a plane together it's done right. You don't have to worry that some power pilot slapped this one together and hoped for the best. It was built for a single purpose. To win DLG contests.

This DLG started life as an XP-4, but recently an XP 4.5 wing was installed. The condition of the fuselage is great, the boom is unbroken and the tailfins are in excellent shape. The wing is beautiful, no dings, or delams. The leading and trailing edges look super.

Radio gear is all included except the xtal. The servos are GWS Pico fast BB's connected with super light and tight linkages. The battery is a 350mah Nimh. The rx is a JR 555 micro (positive shift) with no case and the antenna is linked to a fine wire running outside the boom. Switchjack included, of course. 10.5 oz. AUW

"Yeah, but does it fly?", you say.

What was he flying when he won the 2006 Polecat Challenge? This DLG. 'Nuff said!

Price is $490 RTF or $460 without the rx, shipping included. It will ship UPS insured. Paypal only!
