Sold
NIB Ventus 2cx - 4.5 Meters

Selling another of my unbuilt scale ships... a TopModel (Czech Republic) 1/4 scale Ventus 2 cx.

WS: 4.5 meters
Length: 1.61 meters
Area: 1165.5 sq. in
WL: 17.8-18.1 oz/sq. ft

This is the "deluxe" version of the model and has nearly all the work done at the factory. All control surfaces are hinged, retract installed, spoilers installed, and all wiring done. Model has flaps, ailerons, spoilers, retact, and tow release. The canopy has a sliding window in the canopy like the full scale Ventus and a scale locking mechanism. This is a very complete model and shouldn't take long at all to have it ready to fly. Fuse is fiberglass, wings are foam core, covered in obeechi and reinforced with a carbon fiber spar.

For complete information and specs please look here:

Price: $750, PLUS shipping to any CONUS city. Shipping the model will be expensive as this model is HUGE. In fact, it is so big that I couldn't assemble the model in my shop in order to get photos of it assembled! But, the website listed above has plenty of great pictures. Naturally, a local buyer would be preferred. I still have the original shipping carton (thank the stars) and the manual is simple but does the job.

Please email me HERE if interested:

curtusua@comcast.net

Thanks for looking...

Curt

Curt,

I'll take the plane and pay now, but please hold off on shipping until next month. I'm retiring from the Military and moving to Spokane at the end of the month. I sent an e-mail to your comcast.net e-mail. My personal e-mail is jnsfrahm@comcast.net.

Thanks,
Jim

Hello Dieter,

That's the plan! I'm currently working on a 6 meter Nimbus 4 but I like the idea of flying the smaller Ventus at Eagle and saving the Nimbus for a grass field tow event.

See you in May,
Jim
