Edmonton LPU - PZ Habu, FMS Hellcat with Retracts, FW-190
I have a few too many planes in St Albert, AB!
First is a Parkzone Habu. This is the Blue/Yellow/Silver version. I purchased this used, and I have flown it once. There is no EDF unit (the original had sucked a few rocks through it) but the ESC and servos are all there. There has been some damage to the foam in the nose and one wing (as I recall) but it has been repaired and painted. It's in its original box (which has been shortened due to a shipping limitation at one point). I have a set of electrical retracts that I was planning to install, I will include them if you wish.
Next is a really fun model - this is the FMS F6F Hellcat with a twist - I have modded it with rotating retracts. I really debated whether to sell this one or not because it's a real blast to fly. I have also upgraded the power system - nothing too fancy but a bit more oomph on 3S than stock. It's not a speed demon though! Once again, some paint "chipping" where handling occurs, nothing a blue sharpie won't fix.
Finally, I have another FW-190. This is the TOP-RC Hobby one, and it's a great flyer. It has electric retracts, sequenced gear doors and lights. This is a really good flyer on 3S and should work with 4S stock as well (needs mods for battery space.
The "problem" is the gear. They need a bit of work due to some hard landings which have bent the gear legs. I believe that the gear door servo has stripped (although it still cycles well enough).
