Wanted
Electric/ALES 3m Glider (Grafas, Albatross, Mystique, ect)

Before i go an order something brand new i thought i would check if anybody has something they are looking to sell and save me some money in the long run. The models i have looked at recently have been the Grafas (or Gracia), Albatross, Mystique (RES and FH). Just wanted something around the 3m mark. Please give me a price shipped to 30102 (just north of Atlanta, GA)

Please no foamy models thanks.

I have the following: http://www.arthobby.com/index.php?pa...ry=50&item=295

The hard part is done, i.e. wings built and covered. The pod and boom needs to be assembled and your choice of servos need to be installed. Package will include complete kit, spinner, and prop. $475 shipped. If interested, send me your email address and I will send photos.

Jim

You can't go wrong with a Gracia. Been flying it for almost a year now and it's one of my favorites. Floats well, turns on a dime and lands where you put it. - Randy

XZ - The Gracia is not for sale, just making a comment in this thread that the Gracia is an excellent ship. The Albratross is also an excellent choice. - Randy

Responded to the offers i have received so far. Still nothing set in stone on what i am going to buy. I may just head to Atlanta Hobby tomorrow and see if they have the Mystique RES in stock at their store.

Thanks for the heads up Randy, i assume you fly out at NASA? i may have met you there when i have been flying DLG's occasionally
