So, I'm thinking about upgrading to the DX8. I have a DX7 with the Rhino LiPo upgrade. It's been well used, but is still in great shape. It works as good as when it was brand new, except I only have to charge it every few months. (I fly several times a week)

I also have a friend getting into the hobby who is looking for a DX6i. So if someone has a DX6i that is looking to upgrade, I may be interested in a partial trade and buy out on my DX7.

Anyone?

Thanks for the offer on the DX8, but I've already found a local deal on one for $275 or less, whenever he decides to upgrade. If he takes too long, I'll let you know.

Just remember, it does not support DSM1. I was not impressed - and even think the DX7 is a better radio.

Yeah. I know. I only have 1 dsm1rx. I got it from my friend when he got the 8. The problem I'm having is I'm out of model memory on my 7. I absolutely refuse to have 2 radios. I want everything on 1. Picky, picky, picky.

How have YOU been? Long time no see. Missed you at the sWARm.

I have been well, thank you Dan. I missed the swarm for the first time! Was working on my app, but next time... You should join the DLG fun and then you won't need so many planes :-)

While I was trying to be a DLGer, I bought some things I was going to need.
Sirius Charge 200 from Peak Electronics - Jun recommended it to me to charge metal hydride batteries. Plug a 2200 3S lipo in one side and charge the flight battery on the other. I put a Deans connector on it but never used it.
I have three Futaba receivers - one R617FS (brand new) and two R6208SB's. (One brand new and one installed in my plane and flown twice. Its out of the case and shrink wrapped but could be put back in the case easily). The receivers are sold, thanks.
I also have a bunch of wire - 020, 022, 024 and 026. I have both music wire and stainless wire.
I will make any of you guys a great deal on any or all of it.
Evan

I'm re-listing this, and reducing the price since it hasn't sold yet.

Hobby Lobby Executive Jet with mechanical retracts. I have clocked this over 80mph. It flies great, and glides forever.

My biggest problem with this is even at 80mph, it looks like it should be going so much faster. It's had one rough landing that ripped out the main landing gear once. Not so much a problem with the gear or landing, as it was the wood support that wasn't glued very well at the factory.

There is a small piece of foam near the edge of the aileron that was broke off on that landing. It has been glued back in place. There is also the usual hanger rash associated with foamies.

As indicated on the included battery, I only have 5 flights on this.

It includes:
Hobby Lobby Executive Jet
HL executive jet retracts.
2 E-flite 3800kv BL420 outrunners
2 Hobby King 40a ECS's
Turnigy 30-40c 3S4500
4 Turnigy 1160a servos (2 for retracts, 1 rudder, 1 elevator)
2 HXT900 servos (ailerons)

I think that's it. I'm well over $325 into this, even if you're using the "on sale" price the plane is now listed at. I'll let this one go for $200 $160. That's less than the price of the plane and motors.

Let me know if you want more/different photos.
