I am the guy that paid $125 which was my top bid. Lost one a few weeks ago so I set the bid kind of high.
I think the owner zoomed me, but I really wanted it.
I have paid $80 for park fliers with far less material in them so I feel it was a good deal.
I had one when I was a kid and really liked it. Me and my buddy flew it for years and finally wore it out. We taught countless people to fly with it. Had an old clapped out OS 23 on it, but had plenty of power, just not unlimited vertical
This one will get brushless power, digital servos in the back for R & E, aileron wing servos, whatever else cool modern stuff I can think of.
Building a Super Pacer first and will watch this build thread with much interest.
I do like the idea of getting the kit scanned or duplicated so it could be laser cut. think the rib sheets could be scanned? Personally I think this kit should be re kitted. Would have to be laser cut, nobody would make steel rule dies anymore.
I am pretty sure it would cost more than $125 though. I was looking at a modern kitted Curare and it's well over $200. Will build that one day as well, also Electric.
