My Name is Hank...AND I HAVE A PROBLEM! So...Can You Help an R/C Brother Out?


Hello. My name is Hank…and I have a problem! I CAN’T STOP BUYING AIRPLANES ON RC GROUPS! Sad to say, but wife is still on my case. She came into my shop several weeks ago without warning…and let’s just say it didn’t go real well. So….I (…or better yet…she) decided that it is time to unload some of my latest purchases. My bad luck…has become your good fortune.

This listing includes three aircraft that are all in EXCELLENT “RTF” CONDITION! There is no major damage on any of these gems, whatsoever! You would be hard pressed to find better examples, anywhere. They were all purchased here on RC Groups over the last several months, and I have not even had a chance to fly two of them. Some of the photos used are from the original for sale thread. Like I stated earlier…when “the boss” speaks...I listen. So these babies have got to go!

Your Satisfaction is 100% GUARANTEED! As my rating clearly shows…I am an honest seller who knows how to ship aircraft. I only wish I didn’t know how to buy aircraft…

So…what do you say...can you help a brother out?

I haven't heard back yet Hunkus but if I do and I purchase the plane, I will keep you in mind
It is only a matter of time when my wife is going to see my "shop" and demands that I sell a few (as in a dozen or so) planes.

TM Pro Extra 260


Will you ship the TM Pro Extra USPS priority to me at my FPO AP address? It is a California address for Military mail.

This "for sale" post is classic! Thanks for the laughs, but on the other hand, I understand the wife raining on the hobby parade thing. Your opening post hits too close to home! Here we have been talking about buying a house together (all of us flight buddies) just to have a place to receive new shipments of RC stuff

Good luck with the sale!

ROFL Gliders!
