GIANT 90mm F-16, 90mm F/A-18, 70mm F-16.. TX LPU

Hey guys, time has come to thin the fleet again! Seems like I'm doing this every other week now.... This one is a sweet lot of RX-Ready jets though - I'm willing to take a really big hit on these due to size, they've got to go and are priced to move this weekend.

90mm F-16 in the Nellis Aggressors blue camo scheme. Comes almost ready to fly... it ate the cheap ducted fan assembly and blew it out the back, so you'll need a new fan unit, a servo extension since the rudder lead got chewed, and some bending skills on the left LG, since it was bent on a flat emergency landing. Everything else was repaired (Wing crack and some undercarriage scraping - Definitely not a real crash or anything, more like a poor landing.) Model features leading edge slats, flaps, full flying stabilizers (Sanded the fuselage a bit to allow for travel room) and retractable landing gear. All servos installed, motor and metal spinner included, 100A ESC as well, literally everything needed to takeoff minus what's been discussed. Fix the LG, slap in a new fan unit, connect a servo extension, and you'll be flying a $300 jet for much less. Flies well on 6S battery and 7-channel radio set, but can also work on 6. I have the vectored thrust components as well, but never installed them. Asking $170 local pickup.

EDIT, 10/22 2130: I dismantled the main gear and precisely reset them, so they're even stronger than before. No more need for bending skills! If it's not sold by tomorrow, I'll do some reworking on the nose gear, since this likes to fold in stock configuration. I'll add a little forward rake and will not glue in the frames until it's close to perfect. There is massive potential for this jet!

90mm F/A-18C in blue angels color scheme. Never been crashed, in pristine condition. I have replaced the ESC with an 85A Turnigy unit and will include the original ESC, which was a 75A unit that didn't inspire confidence on 6S. I wouldn't use it, but maybe you'll have another project for it. Motor is very strong and has no trouble launching this jet to really high speeds on 6S, but it's really built around a 5-cell. Needs a 6-channel radio system and batt, otherwise RTF. Asking $180 local Pickup.

70mm F-16 with 360 degree Thrust Vectoring. This is the Freewing model that Hobby-Lobby once sold. It remains my best flying jet of all time - floats forever, goes where you point it, does awesome stunts, and flies tame as well. This one is totally receiver ready with a 4S pack included, trimmed and everything, with spare parts as well. Custom painted exhaust and "afterburner!" Asking $130 local pickup.

Turnigy 6S: SOLD

PM me for a package price, I'm willing to take a little more off if you buy them all at once! All prices are negotiable and trades for smaller stuff will be entertained, particularly small stuff+cash offers.

PM replied, sorry - I absolutely cannot ship the F/A-18C. Too large/expensive/time-consuming to package and prepare. Appreciate the interest though!

Haha, I appreciate that. I wish you were! There's really not a market for this stuff in Texas, I always end up pricing them at giveaway rates just to clear space. Eventually someone stumbles across my ad and clears me out on the spot!

We can talk about a halfway point, depending on which plane you are interested in - I wouldn't be able to do more than one plane though, since my car isn't exactly built for cargo space and it drinks fuel so the trip would add $15 to the deal.

Both 90mm jets are Starmax frames.

Huge cuts!

Bump, all prices dropped to the limit!

F-16, 90mm Aggressors: $170 LPU
F/A-18, 90mm Blue Angel: $180 LPU
F-16, 70mm Tactical: $130 LPU
Blade 400, PNP: $140 ($160 shipped)
A-10, twin 64mm (BH, retracts disabled): $130

For the deal of the century, if you want to come by and grab it all, I'll let it go as one big lot for $650. At retail, that would cost $1300!

I swear, I end up basically donating this stuff at a fraction of the cost each time I try to sell. If I lived in California I would be doing a lot better with sales!

There is zero market here in Texas.... It's really disappointing since there are a lot of awesome wide-open spaces to fly out here. Everything is still available, no bites on anything listed.
