It does not have flaps.

The Nemesis is the same one I bought from Lance last week. I was not aware of the fuse cracks until after I bought the plane. I've reduced the cost by $75 to compensate for the repaired damage.

Full disclosure...here are some detailed pics....

Wow, I just read Lance's original sale posting:

Nemesis molded slope plane. Very good shape. No nicks or dings. It has JR 241's in the fuse for the V-tail and 241's in the wing. Has been flown, and has ballast tube installed. Just add receiver and go fly.

Well, I suppose those cracks technically aren't nicks or dings

Yes indeed, that is the plane I sold...and in the exact same condition I sent it in. I can make no excuses for my oversight. I even took the wing off and looked at it, and I knew there were small cracks under wing. For reasons I can't explain they simply didn't look as bad to me then as they do in PDX's pics now. I thought they appeared cosmetic, but I should've looked much more closely and taken close-ups like that and mentioned them.
I am ashamed.
PDX, as I offered before, I'll refund you the difference on it...

Thanks Lance. Your offer is much appreciated !
Had one buyer interested but they cancelled after seeing the repaired damage. What do you guys think about my price? Is it reasonable? Basically it's going to run about $20 to ship. There are $100 worth of servos in the plane. That makes the entire plane value $180. They run $319 new with flaps. So figure $300 for a new one. If you don't care about looks I would reinforce the fuse sides with glass or carbon.

The price is fine but you could take an hour and fix it to whre you can't see the repair. Sand it down, fill any pinholes with bondo, sand it all smooth and paint it with white krylon. That's such an easy thing to repair and it will make the plane new again.

Mistakes happen -- not many sellers are willing to admit their mistake and make the purchaser whole.
