Question
Is this a good deal?

I was looking into building a kit, but I think I may have found a good deal on craigslist. I can't tell what kind of plane it is, but in the post he says it is a .40 size cessna with a new .40 thunder tiger engine. It has 7 servos, working flaps, and comes with a jr sx600 radio. He wants $150 for it, which sounds like a good deal to me. This is the plane..no clue what it is other than a trainer.

That's a heck of a good deal..couldn't begin to put one together for that price.
Looks like it is in great shape.

Very good deal. Just to really prove it. My boy is going to build his first and is spending $100 for the kit and found a used engine for $75.

Oh wow haha. I'll definitely jump on this then. I've flown electrics for a long time, but haven't flown any nitro yet. I know the f-22 pts is a "trainer", but I don't want to crash it haha. Thanks!

thats a smokin deal!

I would not concider it a true trainer, either, unless its got a flat bottom wing!

just cuase it has a high wing, dosn't make it a trainer, it looks like a nice secound plane, are maybe a trainer if you have a buddy box, if this is your first plane, get some help!

That is a Carl Goldberg cessna Skylane. Not a trainer but a very nice airplane.
Most likely worth every penny

It is the Carl Goldberg Skylane 62 ARF. I have one. I actually learnd to fly RC on this kit version in 1971. It is an advanced trainer, as I didn't want one that would not do aerobatics once I learned to fly. It will do inverted flight and rolls OK as well. A GREAT deal for the price he wants for it!

The original kit was actually designed for 10 channel REED systems, not todays proportional RC equipment.

Where are you located ? I've got a real smokin' deal on a fantastic trainer. How's about a like NEW Hangar 9 Alpha 60 trainer in bind and fly ready condition !!! Has all servos needed and installed, a Spektrum 7-channel receiver with satellite, and a smooth and powerful Evolution 61 engine. These are arguably the best trainers out there, in the perfect trainer size. Just $250 and it's yours, come and get it !!! Shoo
