For Sale
Validol

All,

I am putting my beloved Validol up for sale. Just found out I am going offshore in a sailboat, 600 mile race, and need to buy some proper gear ($$$$). I'm also building hollow moldies that fly great, so this beautiful ship should go to a pilot that will use her!

Plane is ~290g. Has an SM22 on rudder, DS285 on elevator, and Airtronics 94802's in the wing. Will remove the Rx and Lipo/Reg combo unless you absolutely need those. Buyer still needs to install a switch jack if you want, will include those parts.

She has not been flown but for 4 days, 3 practice and 1 practice contest. She may have touched earth a dozen times, otherwise all hand caught by the fuselage. Everything is immaculate, as received from the manufacturer. I put her together light but strong. Wing was potted to the fuselage and everything is super super stiff.

I would like $850. I can ship at buyers cost and risk, but would much prefer to hand off at a contest and not risk the damage. Plane will be at MARKS and/or BASS.

-Sam

Sam,

What do you mean by "wing was potted to the fuselage"?

Wiz,

Wing is completely removable. I re-epoxied the wing mounts on the wing sides to exactly match my fuselage. It is super super tight. This is a 200'+ plane.
