Wanted
Newer F3F plane wanted

I am looking for a newer(1-3 year old) F3F racer to pickup. This will be my primary slope plane and F3F competition plane. It can be ready to fly or not, with regards to servos. I would prefer something that doesn't have a bunch of dings and repairs. I am not expecting a perfect 10, but something close would be nice. If you are getting something new this year and need to ditch a year or two old plane show me what you got. Your backup plane you didn't fly much or whatever. I am not particularly interested in a Skorp at this time. I am thinking along the lines of Ceres/Ascot type planes.

I have access to a sport tube and will take care of the shipping to get it there and back, so all you would have to do is drop off at a FedEx Ground drop spot after packaging it up really well.

Photos are worth a thousand words.

I am always at the fence peaking at these racers

So, timmig, how much would any of your mentioned racer cost?

I have an Acacia 2, Yellow and Blue, modified for MoM ballast with something like 45 oz worth of slugs (they're 1 inch diameter, I'd have to weigh them if you're interested).

Plane has no damage, some landing scratches under the cone (it has been flown, just carefully). Servos are DS168s in the wing and I think 94761s in the fuse, but I have to double-check.

I don't really want to sell but I have an interest in an expensive electric guitar at the moment...$895...

I'll try to dig up some pictures. Plane is about 4 years old, no repairs, just the usual landing marks under the nose cone and wingtips.

Can't miss with the venerable Acacia II. Just flew mine today and still have a grin. It's a great sport plane. Timmig's planes, particularly the VV Viking would be another I'd look at too.
