Espada RL

Many of you have seen this ship in action if you have been to past BSOCO/AZ events. Her name is Betsy and she is a hard core bitch. lol.. just kidding... launches to the moon and can really boogie or turn on the wing tip.

ATX 761's all around in frames.
5cell elite1500 NiMah pack.
The updated large rudder makes all the difference. It was white, but I airbrushed it neon pink for visibility improvement only.
Comes with mueller bags.
I added the small switch jack, but can remove if you don't want it on there.
I'll leave the 790UL Rx in there if you want it, +$35
whisker holes already there.

Wings are undamaged and shiny, but typical small imperfections of a used ship. If you're anal, it could use new hinge tape at the root of left wing, but it's very functional as it is. Left stab has some small depressions as photographed.

The tow hook came out during a two man tow. It was repaired with carbon and has been flown and launched hard off of winches since. You would have to ask Bob if he did any two man tows after the repair or not, as I can't remember. There is also a tiny piece of carbon tow on the vertical along the LE at the stab. I assume there was a ding there. There is a small crease at the tip of the rudder from previous owner ground handling. Never-the-less, it's solid and will stick anywhere you want to put it.

Selling to fund another project.
