Wanted
A couple BNF micros to fly in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Hey guys, a buddy and I have our Spektrum radios here (DX-7 / DX-6i) and we have a couple planes, but outdoor flying is a no no! So, we'd like to find a couple of the Cubs or the Champs to fly in one of the hangars over here. The Mustangs and SU-26's might be a bit much for my buddy right now... so Im thinkin Cubs or maybe a couple Vapors.

Figured I'd look for a couple used ones before we spend the $$ on new.
Shipping is no different that shippin inside the US. Let me know if anyone has anything.

Laine.

Thanks Condor, I appreciate that. If I dont find something used or cheap in a day or two, we are going to just order some new ones.

Laine, keep an eye out for a Parkzone Ember 2 as well...a little more "plane-like" to fly than the very slow Vapor, but still a great indoor flyer. BNF also. I picked one up while I was here but had the opposite problem as you--I can fly outside but really nowhere big enough to fly indoors, so I sold it. It won't handle much wind, but I suspect that's true of most micros. My brother is a new flyer and just picked up an Ember 2 and really likes it.

Laine,
I do have a used Vapor. It is repaired but flyable. If you sent me your address, I will send it over next week. It has a charger and battery. Opening a door can make a big difference in how it flies. A little air movement makes a big difference.

Like the others thank you for your service.

Peace,
Lyle

Guys, we raised $180 exactly! I want to thank everyone for chipping in. Many of your contributions were very generous, and I appreciate it.

Unfortunately, some scumball out there reported my posts. So, they all got closed. I guess trying to do good is no longer allowed on this forum. Laine, I sent you a PM.

Well done gentlemen, trust me, a little break from the daily grind is just what these guys need! Anything to get your mind away from reality for a bit.

Keep your head down and fight the good fight!
