Models for sale at the JR Aerotow 2010

I haven't flown these models in seven years, so I guess it is time to sell them. I will come up to the JR event this weekend and bring them with me.

I have an EMS 5.3 Meter Duo Discus. Never crashed or even a hard landing. It has a detailed cockpit and an Axel Pilot in the front seat. It is a fantastic flier!! It will soar out of sight, then do four point rolls from one end of the field to the other.




I hate to sell it, but I have lost interest and I would rather see someone else tear up the sky with it than let it collect dust in my basement!

Also for sale is my Townado tow plane. It towed almost everything at the JR Aerotow in 2003, even one of Tony Elliot's monster ships. It is 100 inch span and has a 3w85 twin. It was a kit that Robin Lehman brought into the country and is what inspired John Derstine to design the Pegasus tug.





Both of the above models have dual battery systems, tied together with an EMS Battery Backer. Neither has seen a charger in seven years so, I would absolutely count on replacing them in both models.

I have no photos of it, but I also have a Rosenthal 1/3 scale Duo Discus kit for sale. It is a Glass Fuse, Styro Obechi wings, FG wing rod, FG parts to make up the interior and comes with the retract. As I recall it is 6 plus meters when finished.

I have not decided on what I want to sell them for, so if you are interested look me up at the event and I'll make you a bargain!
