Anyone got a cheap fast 60" sloper for sale in the UK?

Anyone got a cheap fast 60" sloper for sale in the UK as I damaged my tragi last week and have 2 weeks off work next week without anything to fly. Thanks

If you are looking for Epp. I would recommend SAS in England. The 60 Wild Thing is a great performer in both heavy and light lift.

See it here http://www.freewebs.com/sasepp/Wildthing1.htm

I can vouch for the Wild thing. I'm only learning but think it is great, it should only take a few hours to build and only needs cheapo standard radio. They will ship it to you within just a couple of days.

If you want cheap,35 will get you a new Zagi.
All standard radio gear fits,
I used mine for combat for a while and then passed it on to my lad to learn to fly and he also did a couple of comps with it.
We used to take it out nearly every sunday and it lasted about a year before it was completely knackered.
Top value for the money and fairly agile when there clean

The only drawback is that they only have an EPP leading edge and the rest of the wing is polystyrene

Tim

ps can't remember if it was 60" though

Actually, new zagis are all EPP, but they are far from fast when you compare them to a racer like the m60...or I guess the wild thing...

Only the THL had an epp leading edge and eps core. The Zagi Fixx (electric) was pure crap, and anything else on Zagi's line is far, far from fast.


Next week? Get an HP 60 and you can have it up in 2-3 days, or less due to the pre installed spar system. You might also want to check the for sale forum for anything available.

According to the NCFM pages, it'll be a while before more HP60s are available.

If I read right, he said he damaged his TRagi, not Zagi. That leads me to believe it's not an epp wing what he's looking for.

For those that do not know the model, this is a Tragi:



Too bad we are too far, I'd sell you my Valenta Fredy (aka Mini Dragon). That IS fast and cheap.
