PIKE Perfection SL F3J and F5J setup


Up for sale is my Pike Perfection SL In both a F3J setup and F5J setup. I am selling because the FAA has reduced our alti limits to a ridiculous 200 feet.

F3J. 57oz ready to fly, elev, rudd have JR DS390HV servos, MKS 6100HV for ailerons, MKS6625 minis for flaps. Wing servos are in ball bearing plastic frames. Fuse has a Leonard Reed slip on skeg which is removeable. Comes with protective covers for wings, stab, vertical, and fuse.

F5J 59oz AUW or RTF weight. Electric fuse with MKS6100 for elev, Rudd. Wings have MKS6100HV for ailerons, MKS6625 minis for flaps mounted in plastic ball bearing frames. Motor is a brand new Powerline Micro 1025/F5J with a castle creations 50amp ice lite esc.. Comes with protective covers for wings, stab, vertical and fuse.

Asking $1699 1500, I accept Cash or Paypal, I will ship in a SUSA box at buyers expense. FedEx to East Coast is around $85, Local PU preferred.

See Eritter post listed below for lots more detailed photos , only change is the brand new motor I installed.

Damage.
1- Small crack at fuselage canopy on left side under orange stripe, repaired with a piece of carbon on the inside of the fuse. It is purely a cosmetic thing in my opinion.
2-Left flap horn had pulled out of glue joint. It was repaired/epoxied back in place.
Other than what I have mentioned there is no other damage no dings/dents scratches and in excellent shape.

PM will get the fastest response. Thanks for looking

Fly with it with the Gulls and forget about batteries......

I have a half dozen F3 gliders already hence I can not take it.

Or over at Black Mountain.

Will and way can be the same!

Though I am a member of the Gulls, I am chicken to throw a piece of art off a 400 foot cliff.

GLWS! If I had the money I would buy it. If that ever becomes the law here South Louisiana.... well lets just say if some FAA smuck would come out to our field and say you can only go up 200 feet.... it would not be a good day for all involved.

At 200 ft not even pattern planes can fly the aresti pattern.... 200 feet seems awe-fully low.

An FAA guy actually did come to our field and told us that any plane did did not post our FAA numbers would be fined.

again, i am so sorry you are having this problem. Personally I have no problem with the requirement to have FAA numbers on the plane. What I do find abhorrent is the restriction to 200ft. That makes it illegal to fly many forms of RC. IMAC competitions and Pattern Competitions, F5j, and F3j , ALL JETS,..... even my $100.00 calypso!!! I had it over 200 feet just this weekend. That said, please include links that we may learn about this and fight it. I would not abide in a 200 ft ceiling... period. To do so would end flying RC for all intents and purposes. I will not go back to racing/ running rc cars/trucks. If the FAA would enforce such draconian restrictions, then they will have to some how compensate folks that have spent many thousands of dollars.

I am not saying these things to raise doubt about your sale. No, on the contrary, that is an awesome deal. And yes you are certainly free and encouraged to sell any item for any or no reason. What I am doing my best to do..... is to address a 200 ft ceiling on RC flight. FOLKS WE MUST FIGHT THIS!
