FOR SALE - Gee Bee Model Z 40

I recently won this Kyosho Gee Bee in a Barnstormer club drawing and, to be honest about it, this aircraft is faster than my reflexes and abilities to fly. Instead of crashing it, I would rather see it flown by someone who can handle & appreciate it.

Here's a quick rundown on specs:
Wingspan: 56 1/2 in.
Wing area: 511.6 sq. in.
Length: 36 in.
Weight: 5 lb., 14 oz.
Wing loading: 26.46 oz./sq. ft.
Radio req'd: 4-channel with 5 servos
Engine req'd: .40 to .46 2-stroke, .50 to .53 4-stroke
OR it can be flown electric (see http://users.swing.be/vincent.filbiche/geebee.htm)
List Price: $250 to $365

I will sell it for $200 USD INCLUDING SHIPPING to any location in USA - or $200 USD and you pay shipping outside USA.

Hope I can find this bird a good home.

Bob,
I really love this airframe, I just need to find a way to afford it and pay for Christmas too! Let me see if I can find enough other stuff to sell to be able to buy it. Are you looking for anything that you might take on trade?

Brad, Kirby & Pilot44

The Gee Bee is still for sale. I am into scale elecrtic warbirds - currently building a PT-17 with a C-47 waiting to be built and a 181" ME-323 ordered and a Palmer B-24 waiting in the wings. I really don't have anything that I am needing except 6 motors for the ME-323.

As far as I am concerned, the first guy with the money gets the aircraft - and my offer to ship stands. Kirby, appreciate the half-way meet offer but right now my plate is so full that I need sideboards.

Bob,
What kind of motors to you need for the 323? I have a pair of Astro 035G cobalts.

Do you have any interest in any of the following warbird kits:
Most are New in the Box (NIB)

Jim Ryan's speed 400 Corsair (NIB)
Pica 1/12 scale Corsair (NIB)
Mark's Models Fun Scale P-51 (NIB)
Pica 1/12 scale P-51 framed, not covered
Herr Panther Jet speed 400 (NIB)

That's the only warbirds that I have.

So you like the Me-323 Gigant.

Woild you want to swap the Gee Bee for a Graupner 323 kit, including the power set ?

65.6" wing span
Designed for electric flight when a sub-C 1400 Mah pach was the hot ticket. Would be outstanding on a 3s1p Thunder Power 2100

(6*Speed 280 6 volt, 6 precision Graupner spinners, 6 of the little 3 blade Graupner props, 4"*2")

These are out of production and hard to find wih the original power set, best 6071

Kevin,

Yeah, I like the Me-323 but I already have the 181" on order - and let's face it, one hanger is really only big enough for one of them. Thanks for the offer though.
