3.7 M Onyx XXL

I bought this from RC grouper Kipp Geisler a few months ago and need to sell it. It is a sweet sailplane but I need to sell most of my models due to changing medical conditions in my family. In short, I need the cash.

This model was flown only three times after I bought it and is one of the best flying TD models I have ever flown. It just flies great!

The following is the original post and with Kipp's permission, I am including the photos from his ad. Nothing has changed, the model is still in perfect condition and is for sale for the same asking price and includes the transport crate.

"This very light thermal glider only has only 5 Saturdays on it and it is pristine. It was very well built by the only person I trust...me. I have 4 competition ships and I want an expensive electric so something has to give. I'm selling it ready to fly just add Rx. It comes in a plastic coffin with foam slots for each panel so you can take it to the field without any hangar rash.

All servos are Hitec hs-85 ball bearings but the flap servos have metal gears. This plane is so light I added 6 oz of ballast at the cg so I could fly it a little faster. It is very gentle to fly and shows lift very well

The fuse has carbon and kevlar throughout the canopy interior for strength. It launches with full pedal.

Selling it for $650 plus shipping."

I am looking to sell it for the same price or the best reasonable offer. Just add your receiver and fly.

Please email me at curtusua@comcast.net if interested.

Thanks for looking!
