    vintage r/c radios

    My father had passed down four boxes of old, vintage RC equipment that I am interested in selling. If anyone is interested please contact me by e-mail at hconsolvo51@gmail.com. If I can get feedback from any of you old timers on here, it would be much appreciated. I currently don't have any of the equipment working but most of it is in good condition and I need help getting it working. Here is a list of the equipment that I have in my possession.

    1 Sampey 404 with Receiver and servos
    1 Galloping Ghost controlaire TX
    1 controlaire electronics transmitter
    1 simpulsel testor R/C CO
    1 CG Venus transmitter
    1 citizen-ship contest transmitter
    1 citizen-ship transmitter
    2 Minx powermasters
    1 Kraft custom 12
    1 orbit transmitter
    1 citizen-ship dual channel receiver
    1 dual proportional transmitter
    Ace Radio Control

    I have been flying models for years and with a little help I should have no problem getting some of this working, I just need a point in the right direction. Thanks!

    Jayman would be my first recommendation. He's done excellent work on my Galloping Ghost systems as well as the Testor's Simpulse system.

    Did you just call Bob an old timer?
    I figured Bob would be all over this stuff.

    I'm sure he will chuckle when he reads this one.
    He might even shake his head at me.

    Scratch, these things appear on Ebay on a regular basis. Do a search there on their completed items to see if any have sold recently. You can also ty listing them there. Dan.

    No problem Scratch!!! Well Vic sometimes I feel like an old timer!!! A lot of neat stuff but I've got so much of it I need to slow down!![]

    Now the Sampey system would be cool. I can remember you could tell the guys who flew the Sampeys because they had one arm bigger than the other because the transmitter weighed so much!!

    I thought that title was held by the Quadruplex radio. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_11349119/tm.htm

    RE: vintage r/c radios

    I am writing to let all of you vintage radio control enthusiasts out there know that I purchased several of these radios in January and they were never delivered. Fortunately, the person I paid the money to (who was not the seller) did grant me a refund through paypal. I was able to file a dispute and then a claim in time.

    Michael/Bob,

    I just checked the weight of my vintage Controlaire Tx. Only 3 oz or so short of 3 lbs. Did the Quadruplex Tx top this?

    RE: vintage r/c radios

    I just weighed my red-anodized Quaduplex transmitter and it weighs a whopping 5.9 pounds (2526 g). This includes the orignal batteries and antenna. The dimensions are 10.5"H X 7"L X 4"W. I've also heard that the earlier grey colored Quadruplex are even larger.

    RE: vintage r/c radios

    Bob,

    Good grief!!!! That was.........heavy. I guess Quadruplex radios werethe top of the line backthen,and that perhaps extra weight would increase that Cadillac-feeling. 6 lbs is a lot though. Perhaps the flights were generally rather short back then?

    Edit....I just saw your latest update regarding the purchase. Glad you got your money back. Some people do make you wonder...

    RE: vintage r/c radios

    Hey everyone, I still have a lot of this stuff for sale. Bob, I once again apologize for the mistake in the shipping. I simply misspelled the address on the package. We did get the package returned to us and offered to send it back out to you but you refused. Also we refunded all of your money via Paypal so other than my initial mistake the situation was resolved. I sold other radio equipment to an individual in the Netherlands with no problems simply due to the fact that the address on the package was correct. The entire situation was my fault though and I again apologize.


    Anyway, we sold the Orbitz and the Kraft 12 channel but everything else is still up for sale if anyone has anymore offers. I also have pictures of everything listed just e-mail hconsolvo51@gmail.com

    Yes, he sent me the money but I refunded him in full once he made it clear he did not want the items resent.
