70mm EDF jet - Complete setup (All guts from Airfield F-4 Phantom)

I've got a brushless outrunner motor pre-assembled with 70mm ducted fan unit, 50-amp brushless speed controller, and four servos out of an Airfield F-4 Phantom - This was a straight-in caused by receiver failure, and the nose section was totally destroyed (along with the steerable nose wheel servo and linkage) but everything aft of the canopy was untouched. If you want all the gear, it is yours for $50 shipped.

This high-output setup allowed the F-4 "Flying Brick" to get airborne in under 20 feet - I was very impressed with its power. Everything here will make an easy transition into a 70mm airframe of any kind and will have power to pull on 4S, perhaps even 5 if you dare.

I'm not crazy about the idea of shipping the whole plane if you want to rebuild it due to anticipated costs, but I'm open to offers as always.

Haha, yeah I guess you could say that... I used my knockoff Orange Rx and didn't install a BEC here, so you could say that I was asking for it.

I knew the risks and enjoyed the show - Not a huge Phantom fan in the first place, so it's all good. I mostly bought it for the top-notch guts that came without the top-notch price tag, but recently came across some other parts to use for my F-22 resurrection instead.

What evidence do you have that the RX failed?

Haha, dude let's just say I've seen it once or twice and I know my stuff...I've got evidence in spades. It's not that the RX failed, that was probably a poor choice of words - It just lost voltage long enough to drop the connection and hit the earth.

Dirdredd, I would rather sell the parts than the airframe, simply because shipping the whole body will cost you big time, and I think by the time we factor that cost in, you won't like the asking price.

'tis nothing but a scratch. A little TLC and she'll be good as new. I'll give you $60 for the whole plane. You know I'm just down the road from you.

Yeah if either of you local guys want to pick up the whole thing, $60 will work. Just send me a PM with a time/place and I'll arrange the deal. I'd definitely rather sell everything at once if possible.
