Art Hobby 1.0 M Colibri Sailplane

I have for sale a newly built Colibri.

It has 2 VS12 mg servos mounted in the wing and 2 Blue arrow BA-TS-43 micro servos in the fuse for rudder and elevator.

The wing servos are shrinked wrapped and siliconed in place. The servo covers are taped in place.

All pushrods are inststalled. They are .032 Dia. music wire.

An offset AAA battery fits perfectly and ballances the plane.(Not Included)

A battery cable is also included.

The top of the wing is clear coated and the bottom is primed and painted Flourescent Orange.

I test flew this off a high-start and it handled nicely but I think it is better suited for the slope.

The flying weight is 10.5 OZ.
The aifoil is HN1033 modified.

I am asking $125 plus actual shipping in and to The USA only
Post an I'll take it followed by a PM.

I just built one for light slope use and it flies super. 8.5 oz with the stock tails, a 250 nimh battery and no nose weight.

I've seen an Art Hobby Serenity 2.5m up close... They make beautiful wings.

No idea if it flies well, since the one I saw was packed into the trunk of a Corvette.

The Colibri fly's well, real well as a mater of fact. I have had one since late 90's and loved it. My only issue is the carbon fiber tail boom, ... it get soft after awhile , but it is very easy to replace.

Again, it's a sweet little plane for light to medium lift.
