Well, just wanted to give you all a heads up, I'm going to be selling off most, if not all, of my RC stuff. Due to some health reasons (getting laid up in a hospital and having to take a ton of work time off is a wake up call) as well as being on a limited budget (don't read this as my wife is forcing me to sell my hobby stuff, because she isn't) I'm deciding to move on. I've had a blast, but to be honest haven't had much desire to get out and fly recently. I used to bicycle quite a bit back in the day, and was in great shape - due to an injury I had to stop for an extended period of time and got out of it. So I'm looking to get back into bicycling and would like to raise some funds to do that and get a nice bike and everything that goes along with that (Chris knows how much can be spent on bikes, hehe)

Anyways, just wanted to everyone to know - I hope to pass on some really great deals to everyone locally here, so look for a big post here in this thread with everything I've got - if ya could wait before pm'ing me about specific items until I post. I'm working with Cryhavoc to try and get everything priced correctly, and reasonably. Understand the prices are trying to be priced in a way that benefits you guys, and I'll wait 2-3 weeks before posting anything outside this thread to give everyone a fair shot at it all. I'd rather see you all pick it up, rather than try to make top dollar and sell it to someone I don't even know. Also wanted to thank everyone I've flown with over the last two seasons, I've had a fun time - just having a hard time seeing how much money I've got tied up in stuff that is just collecting dust.

- Jonathan

Jonathan,

Sorry to hear you'll be pulling away from the hobby for a while.. but it's great you've made a decision on personal priorities.

Good for you and best of luck.

Also, in regards to prices - if you don't think they're fair, send me a pm and we'll see if we can work anything out (ie. make me an offer). I'd ideally move this sooner rather than later. I think they are pretty good deals, and have tried to price them as such.

Also should probably say if you're interested in more than one thing, I'm more than willing to make you a deal. Just send me a pm and we'll see what we can work out. I'm pretty flexible, though don't really want to budge on individual items on their own, as I think the prices are pretty good. Who knows, if you're the least bit interested let me know.

Pics of the charger/power supply setup. If someone buys both together, I'll throw in the Harbor Freight box, multi-meter, lipo checker, and watt meter for no extra charge. Get all your battery/charging needs for $300.

For those with questions regarding the 50cc Raven, Cry can speak for the motor that is installed in it. He flew his first 50cc Electric MX2 with it, and power tested it with me at his house this season.

Um yah!
Pulled like a tractor.
Honest no bull that motor, on 12s with those Xoar props will provide a serious amount of thrust.
For you 3d whipper snappers, there's plenty of "get you out of deep sh#$" power.
