For Sale

For Sale: CARF Kobuz-3 Turbine Glider Hamilton

For sale is this almost new Composite Arf Kobuz-3 in the cool looking Hamilton watch scheme.
Flown three time. Had a Kingtech K120G2 installed. Turbine has been pulled for another project but does included MKS Jet Servos on the Ailerons, Flaps, & Rudder, Spektrum 6300 on the Elevator, Spektrum 20 channel PowerSafe, AS3000 Gyro, servo actuated retractable landing gear. Engine Retract and installation bought from CARF. Engine retract doors have linkages to servos for actuation. Servos were overdriven during sequence setup so they need replaced. I will provide replacement servos or install myself. I would actually recommend spring loading the doors as when flying with the turbine you will probably not retract the motor very often. Canopy has been painted black with a silver accent, looks really clean.
Really neat, large, fully aerobatic glider at a good price. Just not my cup of tea.

Asking $4500 picked up in Jessup Maryland (15 minutes from Baltimore)

Wingspan: 172" (4350mm)
Length: 95" (2400 mm)
37-40Lbs (17-18.5 kg)
80-120 N Jet engine or 120mm EDF
6 high power digital servos (20mm) for control surfaces, 2 for turbine doors, 1 for wheel retract, & 1 high power for turbine retract.

Thanks for taking a look

Learning FPV is expensive :)
IS A GLIDER with a JET ENGINE still a 'GLIDER' ? (4 min 34 sec)
