For Sale

SOLD!!! Awesome SupersonicR F3B/F3F glider


OK, I have to do it. I have to sell my Aerosport Becker SupersonicR! I had wanted to keep this one even if I didn't fly it very much. I looks so good. Marcus Becker built this one to my color specs, and used his method of letting the underlaying carbon material shine through pigmented resin. the result is a cool dark blue, with carbon shimmer underneath. This effect is visible on the fuse (unidirectional carbon) and wings and tail (woven fabric).

The glider weighs in at about 75-77 oz, and can carry about 50 oz of ballast, though I haven't weighed it.

She is in great condition. I flew it only about 6 or 7 times. Minor scratches on the belly are the only blemishes.

Carbon fuse has been modified to accept and work with 2.4ghz radio systems. I have flown this with 2.4 and I had nominal range checks, and glitch free flights. The attached photos show the window I cut into the top of the sub-nose to make the antenna "visible" to the radio.

Visit www.aerosportbecker.de to check out more details about this model.

Mine is RDS, however, I am not satisfied with my flap system install. It will have to get either more powerful servos, or a conventional pushrod setup.

This model is very easy to thermal without ballast. But loaded up, it carries energy very well. For anyone looking to get into F3B, this would get you going in a big way. Maybe not as competitive as the Freestylers, or Cyrils, but it will get you in the game.

I am asking $1650 (reduced from $1750), which includes 6 Airtronics 761's - no battery, no receiver.

Let me know if you are interested, and the price may be negotiable, so please inquire.

Thanks for checking it out.

Mike Smith

After all the headache trying to get models from Markus, it seems team Kanada has given up on this marque. Nice model though

It's just as attractive as your old Tanga... and equally tempting.
Good luck with the sale Mike.

I don't understand your question Pile. Were you interested??? Please explain. I sold it to a guy that offered me a fair price, and since there were no responses here on the groups, I let it go.

Yep, pdx me thinks you are right. Funny though, when it was first posted the sound of the crickets chirping was deafening.:-) The buyer is... shall we say... Stoked.
