I won't be fooled again.
Yep. Got royally screwed on a mcpx v2. I paid $179 plus tax. No more impulse buys.

No, really, I have bought planes, flown them for a year and sold them for about 85% of what I paid for them. Used is awesome. Case in point - Anyone want a PZ icon?
how much you want for it?

I would sell the Icon for $70 BNF. I paid $85
It is a little rough LOOKING, but flies great. The previous owner added flaos, but when I got it, one flap servo was dead. I never felt it needed the flaps, so that servo is still there - dead.

I can shoot some photos if you want. I would also trade for planes in the same size range.

I sold it to Pecan and went into a Dynam PBY, was disappointed with it and went to other projects...

I would still love a FunCub on floats, but this is about as fun as any.

@Patrick~ If you still got it, Ill pick up with cash at your next opportunity

I would prefer cash over a trade PcPhill...
Bradley - we can try to meetup this week sometime if daddiozz doesn't want it. $70 is a hell of a deal.
