Sold
Cessna 182 Airfield (FMS) LPU $90.

I bought this 3 weeks ago from Nitroplanes for $140, including shipping. This is the V4 version with flaps, lights, clear windows and pilot figure in the cabin. It has been carefully assembled and flown less than a dozen times. Never crashed and no damage - it looks exactly like new.

Except for the more traditional call numbers I installed (didn't like the "GKEMY") the plane is all stock and performs flawlessly.

I have the box and packing but, because the tail is glued on, it cannot be repackaged and shipped. LPU in Central Fl only.

Plane is sold. Thanks, everyone, for your interest

Plane has been spoken for. If it's not sold this evening, as planned, I'll update the info.

Thanks for the compliment on the house, BTW - apparently others can appreciate my near neurotic obsession with cleanliness!

David,

Yet another sale I missed.

But, that's okay as the gentleman who is now buying all of your stock got that fever real bad and I have been there and done that!

Pretty soon his Bedroom and garage will look like mine!!

Happy travels near Tampa!

Carlos

I'm just east of Brooksville. About 35 miles north of Tampa. Pending sale looks to go through, however.

LOL!!!!

Okay, I leave you with just those two but, recall that there are countless new models coming out in March or sooner so, please keep me in mind when you decide to sell another one to make room for that newer model

Nite, Nite!

I would prefer that Banana/nitroplanes/etc. sell their aircraft without the crappy servos they put in them. I would buy more of their stuff if they would let ME choose the gear used, including motors and esc's, and reduce the price.

I wish they would sell a 'bare bones' version of their planes but then they couldn't make as much profit. The servos used are about $1.10 each in China and the motors and esc's around $10-20 each. Obviously they can mark up the aircraft considerably as RTF or ARF models because a lot of people don't want to bother with the need to purchase their own equipment. I like their airframes but hate the cheap%ss equipment used in them.

I have had too many of their 'foamies' that the equipment was either inadequate or failed prematurely. I simply won't buy any more of them. It costs too much to pay their price and then remove and replace the equipment with something more reliable.

JMHO.
