3.4M Electric Full house Glider - Masala

I have a brand new 3.4M Electric Glider. Its called the Masala. Nitro planes currently stocks these. All items in box has been inspected and is 100% Clean bill of Health...
This is a very large glider and requires experience. Not a beginner glider. Glider has never been assembled and its current status is still an arf.....
The Wing is mostly built up Balsa with Monokote Covering. Very Strong Wing.
its too big for me so im currently looking for something slightly smaller....so this is going up for sale....this glider was recently purchased so im not about to loose too much money....

$240 Local Pickup.........Shipping can easily be arranged but buyer pays shipping....

This can't be fully molded. Does it have a foam core sheeted wing?

That is one tempting offer!

The one's I have seen are foam core plank balsa wing. Never saw one fly but it seems like a good price to me. - Randy

it's Mostly built up Balsa with Monokote. I saw very little foam. The Wing doesn't have that feel. it seems more stiffer. This Glider originally cost $600 when it was first made. Just for the Arf back in Japan. I don't know how Nitroplanes inherited the Arf's but apparently they was able to lower the Arf price under $300. So this is for sure a High end Glider. Everything is so nicely constructed. Also the Elevator Stab is connects by Rods and the whole stab moves up and down...I'm really impressed. if it doesn't sell i may end up keeping it. The more i see it in my Living Room the more i wanna Keep...for now it's still available.

We have 4 of these here in our club. They all use 25 size motors and 3 or 4 cell lipos. I have the Big foot 25 from Nitro and hand launch it myself. It thermals quite well, not like a gas bag but quite acceptable. It's not high end but is a great value for the money. Don't glue in the spars where they tell you to, just use the screws supplied to fasten so they can be replaced.

I would not hesitate to purchase another one when the inevitable does happen.

I would be a lot more comfortable buying from you than Nitroplanes. I need to be a vastly better pilot than I am to get something like this, but it's awfully attractive...
