Custom Thermal Duration Sailplane Project. *PRICE REDUCED*

Still available is a NIB and untouched custom sailplane project from Viking Models, and Elf Engineering, of Wylie, TX. The kit has a 120" span, wire-cut foam, triple taper wing, pre-sheeted with Obechi plywood by the factory. The fuselage is fiberglass, 45" long, with a removeable nose cone and a shoulder wing mounting platform. The builder will have to provide a horizontal stabilizer and rudder. This is a full house, thermal duration ship that has sat untouched for far too long and I need to fund other projects. The kit is contained within two very large boxes, so I would prefer a local pickup. I will drive a reasonable distance from CT to meet the buyer. $225.00 or best reasonable offer. I will ship at the buyer's expense.

Few Questions?

Hi Richard,

I live fairly close to you in Pittsfield, MA. and could pick-up or meet you half way. I just had a few questions for you.

1) What is the recommended wing joining method at the center section? Does the kit come with the joiners? Is it's rods, (pockets or tubes already installed inside the wing roots?) or is the joining method left up to the builder?

2) What instructions/build sheet comes with the kit? I'm sure there are no prints, and that's okay, but how detailed are the instructions? Does it come with instructions for the tow hook set-up?

3) How are the control surfaces on the main wing attached? If it is Full-House, I can't see the joint between the flap and aileron. How much is flap vs aileron on the back side of the wing?

4) Any idea on weight? Or what the finished weight is projected to be?

Any information you can give would be great.

Thanks,

Paul Murphy, Murph
