Sale Pending - ARTF AP or sport fly airplane – Sac., CA area P/U only


Almost RTF AP or sport fly airplane – Sac., CA area P/U only

Very good condition, almost RTF (requires your battery pack, Hitec receiver crystal and transmitter) “home brew SS-like design” with 55” (550 sq. in.) balsa built-up D-tube wing and ½” diameter carbon tube fuse. The plane and wing are very strong. The wing pylon was built with a partial bottom to allow attaching a camera mount directly to the carbon tube fuse.

I flew this with a 3S2P 2100 pack. It weighs about 49 oz. RTF, with a 13 oz. /sq. ft. wing loading. With the 12x8 prop it pulls 26 amps giving very lively performance. (46 oz. static thrust, 49 MPH pitch speed and 250+ watts) Full throttle run time is about 9.5 minutes. Most flights averaged 15-20 minutes, as it cruises at less than 1/2 throttle.

The plane and components (all new when installed) have less than 25-30 flights on them.
(The prices listed below for the components are average Used Prices.)

Completely built plane - FREE
Mega 16/25/3 brushless motor - $50
Cobri 28 alloy gear box (2.5:1) w/spare spur gear - $20
APC 12x8 TE prop and adapter
Castle Creations Phoenix 35 brushless ESC - $40
Hitec RCD3500 8 channel receiver - $30
(no crystal, Hitec/Futaba shift)
2 – Hitec HS-85 BB servos - $25

Total Used Prices - $165

Price - $150 for the entire package (Sold as package only.)

Will accept cash only on delivery/pickup.

Sacramento, CA greater area pickup/delivery
(I can meet in Davis for Bay Area flyers.)

Sorry, No Shipping

I should probably explain that this plane was built with AP (Aerial Photography) in mind. I wanted something easy to maintain and add components to - like the Slow Stick. But, I also wanted more durability and wind handling capability.

The wing was built from a Balsa USA wing kit for their "fuelie Stick Trainer" and the tail feathers were built from the same plan. I just used the carbon tube for a fuse instead of their balsa/ply builtup.

It is a great all around flyer. Need to create room in the workshop/hangar for new projects.

Balsa USA sells a complete aileron wing kit for $20 that comes with plans if you want ailerons too.

There must be someone in the greater Sac., CA area that wants a great flying airplane with all this great gear... for just the price of the gear - the plane is free.

I guess I need to ask $50 for the plane to make it more attractive?
