Nothing biger than 6 ft wing span.
No kits please.

I have motor, servos, and esc. However, will consider with them installed.

Check with Rob Schaffer

He had a ready to fly 2 meter ship for sale a few days ago here on the e zone. I bought his Wind Dancer sailplane a few months ago and it was well packaged and it flies great. He lives in PA too, so you guys could probably meet to make a deal. His thread is currently on page 7 of the For Sale Forum here on the e zone. Good luck. Tom

The thread is now on page 9, but will probably bo on page 10 by the time you read this. Or maybe even 11. this stuff advances real fast. The title to look for is:
" Hangar (Basement) Cleaning Sale".
Thread starter is Rob Schaffer. I think this is just what you are looking for. Tom

I am sure we can work something out. Trouble with shipping is, the cost for something of that size. It will run in the neiborhood of $18 for boxes/packing material, and about $15 for shipping to your area. The box has to be made up from a bike box due to the length of the wing,... that's why it's expensive. Email me at or PM me, and we can try to work something out. I can send you additional photos as well.

Tom,... thanks for the comments. Glad you like the Wind Dancer !

Tom, I have a Olympic ll 100 in glider I can let you have for $ 65 and deliver to you at or near the Ohio state line. That way we could split the driving to about 50 miles apiece

I have used this glider with a couple different electric set ups and it has two detacheable noses, the wing is two piece joined in the middle with a 1/4 in steel rod. The tail feathers are removable for easy transport

If you are interested, PM or e-mail me, I can take pictures

I have an older glider with about a 6 ft span. It had a speed 500 with gearing and about a 12 folding prop. I am from Port Richey and if you ever get up here you can have it! Wing is in great shape and the fuse needs minor repairs.
