UPDATE- Lot is being parted out. Local can buy anything. Shipping is only available for the kits and the parts from the 11th picture. (Mini Aerocat can ship but it would be around $20 shipping because I'd need to find a box).

Hello All,

I have several planes, one truck, and hundreds of supplies to get anyone into the hobby or grow your collection. I'm looking for $1200 all together for the package. It is worth at least $1800 but it is priced to sell.

1. The only gas plane that is BNF with an AR500 in it is a General Hobby .25 Gee Bee with an OS 40LA on it.

2. Seagull Extra 300 EP PNP. Has been put through its paces but still flys like a dream. This is a true 3D plane with tons of power. During a recent maneuver, the right elevator was ripped from the plane. I was able to fly it in and got no damage besides the elevator. I will buy online and ship a new elevator and rudder to the buyer (it comes as a package deal).
-Rimfire 35-36-1200kV outrunner
- APC 10x5e prop & red Du-Bro spinner
- Castle Creations Thunderbird 36 ESC
- HS-55's on ailerons
- HS-65HB's on rudder & elevator

3. Electrify L-39 PNP. Stock to the core and still looks new besides a small crack in the wing that is not clearly visible. Flys like a dream. Flown 10 times.

4. I have for sale a Cox Thimbledrome Stuka Dive Bomber .049 Control Line model. It comes with the complete model with bomb ! Everything looks new besides the decal on the left wing which is partially ripped and the right wing that is slightly bent at one corner. It comes with everything to get it started but the fuel. I had it running a couple days ago myself. Never flown.

5. Mini Aerocat STOCK PNP. Comes with 400mah 3S battery.

6. Electrifly XPD-8 ARF but comes with all supplies to complete it. Motor and servos are installed but all that needs to be glued in is ESC. Great Condition

7. Planes Not built Up
• Lanier Stringer .10 Kit NEW
• Carl Goldberg Anniversary Piper Cub Kit NEW
• Eflite Pitts Model 12 15e ARF New BUT I have taken the fuse and the screws out of the box. I attached the landing gear to the fuse and put the screws in a magnetic screw holder that I am including.
• House of Balsa Beechcraft Bonanza Kit. The first 5 steps have been completed to the point I had to decide what motor to use so the dimensions would be correct. The fuse is all that has been built up. All pieces are included.

8. Hobbico Ultra Tote Field Box
• Two Hanger 9 12V 7ah batteries with charger
• Hangar 9 Double Vision DC Fast Field Charger
• Dubro Kwik Start Glow Plug Igniter
• Hanger 9 12V Power Pro Starter
• Hanger 9 Ultra Fuel Pump
• Bottle of Omega 15 Pink Fuel
• Misc. Field Supplies (tubing, weigths, ect.)

9.Redcat Racing Volcano STX with 3.0cc .15 4x4 that comes with a radio and about two tanks worth of fuel still RTR.

10. 30CC Size Yak Kit that is Ready to be covered and comes with the complete airframe. Don't know a whole lot about it but it has never been flown.

11. Then comes the miscellaneous parts....the expensive parts include
• Spektrum DX6i Transmitter
• 6 Lipo 3S Batteries as large as 3300mah
• 4 Lipo 2S Batteries as large as 800mah
• Soldering Iron with Accessories
• Magnum XL 15
• 3 ESC (1 Eflite, 2 Hobbyking)
• Turnigy C3536 Motor (eflite 25 compatible)
• A Set of Standard Size Cirrus Servos including a Retract one
• A Set of Micro Sized Futaba Servos
• A Set of Micro hobbyking Servos and a generic Spektrum RX
• Hobbyking Eco Six Balance Charger with all Accessories
• Spektrum AR500 RX (2), Spektrum AR6100 RX (1), Spektrum AR6100e (1)

Everything pictured within the boxes and on the bed is included. I can explain any of the pictured items further is questioned.

12. NOT PICTURED- A full box of balsa, foam, pushrods, and extra building supplies.

I will answer all PM's within a couple hours.

This is everything !!!!! I am open to offers or any ideas. I would be open to trade but it would have to be outside the hobby. I golf, love any electronics, and collect silver/gold. Thank you for looking and God Bless !

I would really prefer a package deal unless you are near Springfield, IL. I am heading back to school in two weeks and would like it gone. I would not like to ship. If you were near Springfield I'd say...... $200 but once again; the package deal gets priority.

I was looking over craigslist today and fell in love with a couple motorcycles. I think this is my next hobby. If anyone has a bike they want to trade, I'd love to hear it.
