The theiving bastid's apparently somewhat knowledgeable of 'Things R/C' -- methinks there's a good chance in passing by he saw & recognized the packaging on your steps, & went for it. Since he's selling other planes(?), I gotta wonder how he came by those! One thing's for damn sure -- I'd do some checking & find out if he was a member at any local clubs, and make sure their members were aware of what happened. Post 'im up in every local hobby shop too.....name, address & phone nr.

With people like this yes turn him in .... if you don't teach him a lesson he will do it again and maybe next time he will get hurt or killed! So don't look at it as getting him in trouble but more like saving him from himself

Yeah, this add http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/tag/3771251747.html is by the same guy who stole your plane. Same phone number. Go talk to him and report him to the cops. He is still selling stolen stuff even after you went to him!

This is beginning to sound like a horrible mistaken identify & vigilante gone wrong story...

That Radian is obviously stolen. NOBODY who actually paid for the plane would take a photo of it on some outdoor trash can. He doesn't even list what kind of battery or radio comes with it and calls it BNF. I don't think there is another story, this guy is a thief no question.

Getting the police involved now is far too late.
You can't prove anything anymore.

No...don't turn him in. That wouldn't be very nice.

I'm just sitting here cleaning my magnum ...

If he comes by I will introduce him!
