The XP5 was a great plane (no longer made), so the fuselage should be very nice. But I don't know anything about that "Winder" wing and tail. The glassed blue wings look a little fragile to me. No carbon D-box, no Kevlar skins; just a little strip of Kevlar along the leading edge. But what do I know? About the same price you would pay for a new TS2 or Predator 2 kit...

So... probably not as nice as a B3? I STILL need to decide what's next.

No, not as nice as B3 IMHO, but less expensive.

Winder's stuff is great. IIRC, he was bagging the XP stuff for Denny, at some point. I actually have an identical vertical as the one listed for sale, still in the bed. I'm holding on to it for "something special", whenever that comes around.

I'm selling my Raptr and would prefer to sell it locally. PM me if you're interested. I would like to get 350 for it RTF, but am willing to let it go for 325 if sold locally to one of the guys. Let me know if you're interested. It is in great condition.

Thanks,
Jeremy

I'll post pics later, but it is this glider here:

Ooh, that's a great deal for J's Raptr. Somebody jump on that!

I will also sell my Vandal to a local for $400 if anyone is interested. 2-servo wing with D-47's and RDS, JR SM-22 servos on elev/rud (pull/pull), 360mAh lipo, regulator, switchjack with external charge plug, and ballast. Ready to fly, just add your receiver. Has some mileage on it. No beauty queen but still solid as a rock and flies like new. Awesome contest performer. New kit with equivalent options & gear would cost over $750 and probably take a year to get. Would like to see it stay local and help a new guy. See it in action HERE.

Competition...?!? I thougt the deal on the vandal was just between us Mike! Thanks a lot! just kidding!!! That's a killer deal on the raptor too! If I don't pick up one of these birds... then it's looking like a B3. Let's see who still has a plane when I get paid! Another one of our Alula brothern is ready to graduate to DLG, A.D.'s neighbor Cooper (good buddy of mine for a long time). I'll let him know about these deals too!

Did anyone notice the Stobel price increased 50 bucks? ...Bummer. Maybe I'll be looking for a used one.

Hmmm, I wonder if this is because of the new redesigned tail that is now coming standard on them?
