Well it was my lucky day today.
Our neighborhood garage sale was today and I hit it big.
My wife and I where just driving around when I saw a table in a yard and on the table was a couple of small engine..How did I spot this,you can have any engine for just $5
my jaw hit the floor.

He had a brand new McCoy .35 on the table along with a Medallion .049 , a Pee wee .020 and a couple other R/C motors.

I started talking to the gentlemen and he had mention he lost his pilot.
with turn out his son lost interest.
he said I have some built plane if you like to look.
sure I i would like to take a look.

down stair and in the back room he open the door...and again my jaw hit the floor.
50 airplane all sitting on a table collecting dust.
take what you want.Sure I would love to take them all but I cannot afford to buy these.
He reply's .they need to go.or there going in the trash..
sure you can't do this.
Long story short I ended up with a Cosmic wind with K&B Stallion .35
A sterling Ringmaster Bipe plane ,never built
baby Flite streak never opened.
a ringmaster with a .049
a have another plane with a Forseter .29 not sure what the plane is.
a lil Satan .049
and he want me to come back to pick up more...all this for only $20
and a friendship..I feel the good lord was with me today.
Will post pic soon.
The Cosmic wind need restoration as all fabric is torn up on these planes.be still what a find.
