Xplorer 3.8 LPU

Hi to all,

I am offering my Xplorer 3.8 with all servos. No receiver and no battery pack. The following is some details:

* Outer panels are spread tow. Center section is standard
* Outer panels use ATX micro servos, flaps are JR 3421
* Fuselage servos are JR 368
* Fuselage has been repaired from a boom fracture and is F3J strong.
* Current flying weight is 73 oz with CG set at 112.

LPU only unless you wish to pick up at the AMA Convention this weekend or you pay for the shipping of the model to your place AND the return shipping of the Sport Tube used to ship it. (deposit required on shipping)

I am asking $850.00 for the model. If shipped, add for actual freight to and from your location with a deposit of $100.00 on the Sport Tube, which will be refunded on return of the tube. Want a wing bag to go with it? $50.00 additional, and it's a good bag. I really prefer the LPU or sale at the AMA, only because shipping is always a risk. If you are in the SoCal region, we can talk about meeting halfway. Thanks for looking.

PM's answered. Vespa first, SlopeRC second.

Oh, and I forgot something about this deal. Back in the history of this model, it was involved in a violent mid-air during a F3J launch, destroying the right wing panel. (Yes, it started the Dr. Death legacy). As a result, I ordered a new SET of wing panels. So, this deal will include a spare left wing panel. Oh, and there is a landing skeg on the nose.

(yeah, okay....Dr. Death)
(Are you happy, now, Thomas?)

Hi once again.

The deal keeps getting better, but first, why is this happening? I was the first to bring an X into the country and have been flying them ever since. Being the plane has become so popular, there are bound to be models that get damaged or destroyed. I just happen to be around a couple when that happened and picked up a piece or two. So, I just tossed in one of those pieces, that being a virtually new, white canopy. Nothing wrong with the present one, but in case you don't want a black canopy, you can do something with this new, white one.

Somebody asked me about that spare left wing panel and if it has a servo in it. Yup, a JR 368 is in there, ready to go.
