An Omega 130g that has about ~30 flights on it.
A precision aerobatics Quantum 45 ESC with ~30 flights on it.
Misc extensions, extension clips.
and an APC 13x6.5 prop
I replaced the standard hardware with ball links on the tail and quick links on the ailerons.

With all of that gear (no receiver and no batteries). I was thinking $300 delivered to Ohio Huckfest.

Let me know your thoughts.

Soooooo tempted but I don't think I would b able to have 2 and fly both of them without one sitting in the garage.

Finally flew for real tonight. Love my 72, love my funjet and got back with the 42. Almost got my first balsa hover catch. Darn inverted harriers got sketchy though. Flew until I couldn't see anymore. Definitely looking forward to a night flyer.

Out at D-town Saturday and Sunday with the 42 Slick and new Buck 1.5 and having a ball with both of them.

If you don't have a Buck 1.5 then get one...what a blast!!! Very fun 3d monster...will flat spin in place both upright and inverted...also a complete harrier maniac (flys around easily nearly dragging the tail in figure 8's)...punch the throttle for some nice verticals and violent ke spins Had a little wind on my first flight on Sunday and did short take off to hover and just torque rolled down the length of the runway..with a big smile on my face

The Buck 1.5 is turning some heads and more die hard gassers are asking about electric planes...they all say, "What is that...where can I get one of those...I've been looking for something I can throw in the car".

Dave, Bob, Wedge....would be good to see you guys..You going to be around D-town this weekend??

I would think the fact that he has a house full of planes already, which would mean it doesn't take much to get him to buy. Try this one....

"sure you have a Yellow SHP and a Red SHP... but do you have a BLUE SHP!?" That should get him.

Awesome! I hadn't thought about that.

So, how about this...


Wedge, you really want Wedge Jr. to learn all about responsibility. He would love the opportunity to earn the money to buy this plane and show you how responsible of a young man he is. It give him a great opportunity to show how mature he can be with buying something for himself, taking care of it and even possibly selling it in the future should he want something else later. It teaches him all about capitalism and how the world works. How could you not love that?


Plus the Blue color scheme is just so attractive that you can never have too many! It really complements the yellow and the red nicely!

Hello,
I'm a new guy to this hobby.
I live in Peninsula and looking for some good people to help me get flying.
I was wondering if your looking for any new members.
I'm not sure where your airport Is. Hopefully not to far from me.
