Xplorer Ballast


I'm selling Xplorer/Pike Perfect ballast that I purchased used but never used.
Brass and aluminum. Each brass slug is 4.0oz and each aluminum one is 1.25oz allowing you to mix and match to whatever weight you desire.
Diameter is 36/64" or 9/16" or 14.2875mm

I'll pay the shipping via USPS Priority Mail to the USA.
PayPal preferred.

Thanks

That's not just for Xplorers and Pike Perfects, I use that same kit in my Shadow 2. I'll bet it can be used in almost any F3J sailplane.

By the way, I attach a selection of miscellaneous hardware to the last slug so that the assembly balances right in the middle of the center section, keeping the CG constant with all of the symmetrical combinations on your list. (I have a list just like yours.)



Hope this helps you find a buyer, but if you don't want this post here then I'll understand if you delete it.

I use a set just like this in my Maxa. it is a versatile set of ballast.

I'm also building a tube for this type of ballast for my Nostalgia sailplane for those rare days at the NATS when the wind trickles in

Again: If an unwanted post, feel free to delete. Just trying to help the sale along.
