Its not that cheap, $160 will will get you a new one with fan shipped free. Further it has a warranty, and a gennerous replacement program.

THis one looks like the old version too, baby blue instead of blue angels blue.

Check efj.com before you act like he's an idiot for asking that.

Its not even your thread.

Its definitely blue angels blue... The Camera flash kinda washed out the color... You can see the color a bit better in the picture i have attached below.

But... no i dont have the motor. Just have the jet, fan, and pilot for sale. Im actually putting it up on ebay tonight. Had alot of interest and questions here about it on the forum, but no one seems really serious. Selling it here is just more trouble then its worth. Even had someone ask me to ship it before he paid just in case i wasnt representing it honestly... Give me a break; Im not trying to dick anyone around for a measly $150. So, if anyone is still interested check ebay.

thanks

Just a piece of advice, I checked the ebay add. THe starting bid is $120 with $26 shipping. That is more than retail.

EJF at http://www.ejf.com/index.php?main_pa...roducts_id=206

offers them for $129 Shipped.

If you are serious about selling it, I would say $90 SHIPPED is fair for a second hand model. I am not dicking anyone around either, just telling it how it is.

Thats the problem with this RC stuff, too much risk buying second hand and it loses value fast.

I just thought I would point that out because it is not hard to sell things here if you are reasonable, but if you ask more than retail well...

Thats why i wanted to know about the motor. The fan is about 25 bucks new and the plane can be had brand new for 129. so for the extra 5 bucks I can get a brand new one with the warranty. Its just not a deal.

If you dont happen to sell it on Ebay let me know.

A Wemo 480 is 59.99 from EJF and the Kit is 129.99 so that 189.98 with free shipping.

He's asking 150 including shipping. So that's 39.98 cheapter than buying the exact same thing new from EJF.

Not a bad deal. You should compare apples to apples before popping off in someone's for sale thread.

Not popping off at all. However, I think that price may simply warrant a question about a motor is all.

I am not bashing the price but rather someone smacking somedown for asking a good question.

Thanks for adding that... I appreciate it.


I had actually planned to go straight to ebay with the plane but then decided to list it here to give forum members the opportunity to buy it before going public on ebay... I didnt think the price was too out of line. I sort of regret even listing it here. Im always suprised by those who choose to throw stones. Anyway, im done answering questions about it. If you are interested in an HET F-18, go buy one from ejf...
