For Sale
E Flite J3 Cub 25e CRASH SALE

Alright I just crashed my beautiful E Flite 25e Cub and I am so furious I don't even want to deal with the plane. The only damage is in the front, firewall is trashed. I either had a radio malfunction or stalled it on take off. But it spiraled in not responding to any inputs and went in nose first. The motor seems to be okay, but the impact crushed the firewall and the cowl. Everything else looks absolutely perfect. I was surprised when I got to it how good of shape it was in.

Anyways, the plane will come receiver ready with upgraded Power 32 motor and thunderbird ESC. All servos installed and even have the E Flite floats for the plane. If I don't sell within a week or so I will rebuild it or fit the equipment in something else. I also have a 3s 4000 MAH as well as a 4s 4000 mah battery I will include.

I don't have the wing struts attached in the photos, there is no damage to them either... The last picture is the Cub in it's prime on floats
Take advantage and just make me an offer. Trades are also welcome.

Why not buy a new fuse if you don't want to fix it?

I've been thinking about it. Just looking at the plane I really don't want to get rid of it I was just furious I crashed THIS plane and it's worse that I don't know what happened. It seemed like a complete loss of signal but I was about 30 yards from it on take off using an AR6200. Then again I had what seemed like plenty of airspeed for it not to stall, maybe a gust of a tailwind hit me and caused the spiral. Idk, I may fix it.

just apply your tag line to yourself, fix it, then fly it like you stole it!

If you were closer I'd be singing a different tune and trying to steal it from you so I could fly it like I stole it!

Don't do it!

Don't trade her. Don't sell her. FIX HER!

You have everything you need to fix her. Looks like the old firewall can be used as a template for her new one. If not, all you have to do is to ask someone with a unbuilt fuselage to stick her nose down on a copier for you. Cubs are so much fun to fly, you will regret getting rid of her!

If you need to, just put her aside for 30 days. If you still feel the same way after 30 days, you can let her go to someone else.

Chin UP!

I trashed mine the other day. Cartwheeled and broke the firewall in pieces, broke the right side tail clean off and snapped the rudder.

I took my time, and patched her up. The monokote does not match but she flies.

Well guys...

I've gotten over my furious point and have come to my senses

Idk what came over me with THIS plane as I've crashed my glow planes to the point where the plane was in shards and I rebuilt! I think I am just so busy right now I didn't even want to deal with it. But I AM going to repair... here are some pictures. It doesn't look like a very hard repair at all now that I'm calm and looking into it. I have the firewall snugged back into the front of the plane and it's really not too bad. I'm going to grab some ply and balsa wood in the next couple days and really get my hands back into the repair business! I can't do it tomorrow because I'm doing a little work on my car (pic also included )

Anyways I guess this will be kind of a like a repair thread whoever has already gave me the words of encouragement

If any moderators are looking, is there anyway to move this into a thread instead of a for sale ad?
