HN Extreme

Hi Guys,
I'm putting up my HN Extreme to fund some other projects, I picked this up a little over a year ago and have put several flights on it including one at Eagle in 60+ conditions (fully ballasted of course) with no ill effects. Alvaro Corzo reconditioned it just before I got it and it still looks great. It's an excellent flying plane and plenty fast. There are a few scuffs (no scratches or dents) on the bottom of the wings, all of which I think could be buffed out and one small scratch on the nose. It has 761's all around and everything is still pretty tight (pull for up on the elevators). It comes in at about 86oz and has an additional 31oz of steel ballast (so you could go more with brass, lead or TG). All in all it's an awesome plane that anybody would be proud to fly.

Edit, in the bottom view I was asked if there were repairs or if it was just light reflections, it's just light reflections

$1000.00 + shipping. (Paypal + 3%)

Thanks for looking,

Thanks for the comments! Like I said the only reason I'm considering selling it is to fund another project. Otherwise I'd just continue to enjoy it, it really is a great flying plane.

Just an FYI, steel and brass are roughly the exact same weight.
Brass costs a little more but doesn't rust.
If the ballast is round, its pretty easy to get brass or copper tubing the right size, and pour lead into it.
That should weigh about 30% more than the steel.
