2meter glider For Sale. LPU

This comes with much regret but I would like to sell my Frank Weston Waco
Mirage Two Meter glider.

This was the very first wing I vacuum bagged. This has a spruce spar and
has fiberglass skin over a High Density foam, something like 60psi. This IS
a winchable model. I flew this model a few months ago and she is RTF as is.

The tails are fiberglass and are pull-pull actuated.

The pod/boom are Kevlar.

The radio gear is mounted to a stick that slides in the nose underneath the
opening under the wing.

I built this in the mid 90's and she flies fine. I'm not a fan of V-tails
or the smaller size model and am funding some CarboWeave for another
project(s).

All up weight is 29.4 ounces.

There are four JR 341 servos and a FrSky receiver for Futaba FASST system.

Asking $250 OBO with the servos and battery. The receiver is negotiable.

There was slight wingtip damage when it was shipped to England, it was
easily repaired and I never bothered painting it:

There is also two cracks on the fuselage that need a little carbon or kevlar
fabric applied to the inside of the fuselage to repair.

I know this is a little late but I did fly the scat cat and the wild thing, they both fly like champs and I am very pleased with both.
