Samba Pike-V F3B/F3F

Samba Models Pike-V F3B/F3F ready to fly, just add Rx. Carbon fuse w/ slip-off nose cone, single carbon 3-pc wings and 1-pc V-tail, RG-15 section, 2.92 meter span. 81 oz AUW minus Rx, 40 ozs of add'l ballast (included). Hitec analog servos throughout. Overall good cond., sano repair to port side main panel, V-tail saddle area and minor rash along parts of the leading edge and repair at port wing root (pictured).

The Pike-V has been a popular F3F model with major wins (British F3F National Championship). In the right hands the Pike-V would still give them a run for their money. This is an ideal transition glider from a 60/2-meter - easy to fly yet screams when ballasted. Preference to local sale, shipping is ~$60 Paypal as Gift/Check/MO accepted. Send PM with email addy for add'l pics. SOLD

Someone that flys F3F will find this to be a PERFECT "beater" for Parker and such.
You can fly all the races, and not have to risk your Ceres, Cyril, Freestyler, Radical, etc.
No offense meant by the term "beater". It's a perfect second string F3F plane, they go FAST when flown properly.

G/L with the sale.

T, no offense taken. Tough airframe to boot, been DS'd to 160 mph after the repair and no issues. previous owner placed well with it in a local TD contest - its also a floater when you want it to be.
