Pike Superior RTF - New photo - PRICE REDUCED

RTF Carbon 68 F3J Pike Superior cross tail with ballast. $1350 OBO plus shipping.

Airtronics 761 digitals all around
(removable, see photo). Light green over dark blue. New this year (June), probably has fewer than 10 flying sessions on it - no contests, not even a hard landing. Flying weight is 74 oz with a 4 cell GP2200 pack and the molded skeg. Needs no additional balance weight.

Slight cosmetic damage on top of one tip panel (one 1/2" tear in skin only - spar not compromised, 6 very shallow dents) expertly repaired. Otherwise in like new condition. Photo shows the tear. One of the dents is barely visible in the photo near the aileron hingeline. Repair area is painted a dark grey band about 9" wide at the root of the right tip panel. Except for the color, you cannot tell there was any damage. Full pedal launches not an issue.

More photos available. Molded skeg (from Skip Miller) painted to match - availablefor $90.

Will ship in the excellent original wood-reinforced box from SoaringUSA.

Located in Seattle.
Phone 206-661-7824

Edit: no time to assemble and take full pic, but this shows the repaired area on the right tip. I was going to spray a color over it but decided the grey looks cool as is. Leave it or shoot on some color. Either way the filled dents are invisible.

This plane is owned by a member of our club (Seattle Area Soaring Society). It really is a beautiful Superior, put together with great care by a master builder. You won't be disappointed. I'd buy it myself if I didn't already have too many planes!

Hold the phone!!!!! Did I just hear Jim say he had "too many planes".


I just picked up a Superior in the same colors. How does it look in the air? It would be nice to have a back up.

I know, it's got to be some kind of record, right? ;-) I am trying to trim down (in more ways than one).
