Bristol Beaufighter from HVP kit (Flight Ready!)

Like the title says, its a Bristol Beaufighter from HVP kit. There are many extras, I have taken the time to apply all panel lines as per three view drawings and also added the inspection panels and hatches. Aileron servos are Dymond D-60s and the rudder and elevator have a pair of Hitec hs-81s
also included is a Hitec electron RX. For power I went with Helmut's suggestion with a couple of outrunner brushless motors he imports from china (Gunther clones) and as a result this bird is a bit over powered. A pair of Castle Creations Thunder Bird 18 amp ESCs are installed and an extra BEC aswell. When I set it all up and tested it, it pulled like hell! All in All I have just over $500.00 invested in the Gemans I have not even flown it. I am looking for $400.00 and a local buyer if possible. I would hate to ship due to the cost and the possibility of damage. Would be willing to drive with in reason to meet with the buyer for delivery.

Grumple. Wrong coast.

If you decide to ship I am interested. This HVP kit is magnificent and I am to this day kicking myself for selling the kit I had.

I've shipped some of the all-wood warbirdkits.com planes long distances. If you do come to a point where you're willing to ship, I would absolutely finance the enterprise. It would have a good home in Connecticut, a smooth grass field and a stable of other warbirds to rest with.

Great looking plane
