I purchased this a few months ago from one of our more esteemed pilot/builders here in Austin. He'll probably be mad that I'm selling it already but I need the money. Sorry Bruce! The only damage that I can find anywhere is a small wrinkle in the tip of the rudder. I believe it looped out on a landing but the rest of the plane is in tip top shape. I would go as far as to say you'd be lucky to find one that was put together better and in better condition. It even has two ballast tubes if you can't stuff enough lead in one.
Elevator linkage has zero slop and returns to center with precision. If you want a plane that will go up when all of the others are struggling, this Shadow is for you. I've ridden several hand launch size thermals from 20 ft to speck height in this gorgeous open class ship. Feel free to ask for specific photos and or haggle. I need to sell.
