FS-Corona Hacker C40-12T - Sold

I hate to sell this littel Heli. In fact I am not sure that I am doing the right thing. I want to upgrade to a Logo 10 and cannot afford both helicopters. The Corona has done its job! I learned to hover and perform forward forward flight with it. I can think of no better Heli to learn on.

Here is what I have.

Lite Machines Corona
Hacker C40-12T
40-3p Hacker speed control
3 HS 81 mg servos
Hitec Rx (RCD 3500)
2 gyros (Helimax piezo, and a GWS)
4 7cell cp2400 battery packs
Carbon rod push rod for the tail.
Brand new black tail boom.
Voyeger E landing gear, with a custom made mounting system

Spare parts
3 main blades (0ne new in package)
set of tail blades (new in package)
main gear (new in package)
Main drive wire for tail (new in package)
Landing gear (both an extra set of Corona new in package and a set for a Voyager also new in package.)
Main shaft made from Drill rod.
+ some other misc parts

The helicopter is in great shape and flys awesome. I flew it last Sunday. The only reason I am selling it is that it is not collective pitch. Lastly the Canopy is in rough shape (numerous cracks that I have repaired, and I still use it...but it survived a learning experience...ie crash)

Asking $650. Buyer pays shipping. My zip code is 59601 if you want to try to estimate the shipping cost. My guess is that it will be around $20.

Can I take that extra JR Landing gear off your hands immediately? Pretty please? Let me know, I will PayPal you as soon as you say "Go". I would also be interested in the extra Gyro.

Thanks,
Scott

Thanks for the offer, but I would perfer to keep it together as a whole package. Right now the Heli is all trimmed out etc. I suspect that it would be harder to sell as parts. If somebody else is interested in the remain parts however I would gladly split it up.

Ok, understandable.....IF you decide to get rid of the JR gear, gyro, and/or motor/esc setup, PLEASE let me know.
Thanks.

I've been thinking about this some more...It's a really nice set up.

I'll offer you $600 shipped.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who looked and made offers. The Heli has been sold.

SkyHawke, I never really timed myself. I know most flights were in the 7 minute range, but most of what I did was hover, and just bounce around. Forward flight was a little longer of course, however most flights I landed mid flight to take a break, or just for fun--so I don't know how long it would go if I just hovered in one spot.

Thanks again.

Andy
