For Sale
Robbe BAE 146 RTF with 100 flights Pick Up Phoenix Arizona

This is the one that everyone talks about and I know why. I have around 100 logger flights on this wonderful aircraft. Ready to let someone else have the fun.

It has never been crashed or abused but does show some nacelle and wingtip abrasion from botched crosswind landings.

The power is with the original brushed motors and with a good 5S 5000mah single battery it pumps out around 800 watts which is very close to 100 watts a pound. Its uses a 80 amp brushed generic controller. I have had no problems with the power system and I wish everything I had was as reliable.

Just replaced the right inside motor.
Come with 3 new additional original motors.

Servos
Aileron 2 each Hitec HS-65
Rudder and nose wheel Hitec digital 5475 HB
Elevator Voltz (German)

2 each Thunder power 5S 5000mah batteries with about 40 cycles each included.

New Turnegy BEC

Eagle tree Data Logger Ver 2 with LCD Screen flush to the out side of the aircraft.
This is great for checking the status of the batteries between flights. Shows MAH used.
Temperature sensor on the ESC Controller. Have logs if serious.

Will not include a receiver, but this is the only item other than the TX that is not included.

The flying photos were taken in March of 2009 so they are recent. The plane is clean but not quite as clean as the photos show. Looks great from 10'. Very scale looking in the sky. Built to last by a 30 year modeling veteran.

$ 950.00 or offer

Can deduct $ 150 if you do not want the batteries.

I live in Cave Creek, (Phoenix) Arizona and can meet you at the SunValley fliers field to demo the aircraft for a serious buyer.

I miss my BAE/146 Sold it some 7 years ago for 350.00 RTF. I was using nicads and the stock set-up as well. It ate up about 300 feet of runway before lumbering into the blue. It was very cool to fly but took a good lap or two to get up to speed. The sound was amazing from the four AP29 black motors and fans. I had about 30 flights on mine. Yours looks great and if I had the coin I would fly out there let you demo it buy it from ya box it up and send it home myself. A lot of people would think 950.00 for foam is a lot but this is a special plane and I would pay it because I have been there. I actually picked mine up second hand for 100.00 and because of the bad building I had to paint it olive drab and make it a C-5 and it looked and flew just like one.
Good luck in your sale and if I won the lottery tonight you will be the first to know tomorrow.

I'd be interested in the batteries if you decide to split.

I was only kidding with the 400 offer. You did not have to break it down I know what you have in it. I had one once. Actually I do think you have way to much battery in it though. Mine flew just fine with two 7 cell 2400Mah Nimh packs years ago

No Problem I understand

You might be right but the battery I use gives 800 watts at full power which is around 100watts a pound. I get a 10 minute flight with reserve and no more concern about am I going to make the go around towards the end of the flight.
