Description:

Up for sale is a project that I have lost interest in and it is just sitting on the shelf and I see no reason to keep it. I bought this in a lot with the Extra and when I purchased it, it had a fair amount of hanger rash that I started to repair and there are few more things to do, but for the most part, it is ready for final sanding, prep, and paint. I documented the majority of the repair in this thread.

I had the paint matched and put into rattle cans as pictured from the local automotive paint store.

I want to focus on other things and would like to offer this up for sale as well. It includes the Wing Bags as pictured. They are very nice.

This plane has never been flown and still requires to be assembled. All the damage pictures are from hanger rash and more cosmetic then anything. I did put fiberglass reinforcement as shown in the repair thread above. The repairs are sound and strong. You hardly notice where the repairs where done inside.

I don't have the time to finish it and need to clear shelf space, so with a little work you will a very nice flying airplane. This plane retails for $1,995 and that does not include the wing bags or $150.00 in paint.

I am asking $950 OBRO! So make reasonable offer, but I kindly ask to be reasonable. I am located in Meridian, ID and prefer not ship this, unless the buyer is willing to accept liability and all associated costs with crating and freight fees. However, I am willing to drive to deliver within a days drive, about 500-600 miles round trip from 83642 zip code.

Please see pictures for best description, I did my best to take pictures of every area of concern. Thanks for looking and please PM me if you have any questions.

Here are the specs from the Chief Aircraft website.

Canopy opening is much larger for easy access and installation
Integrated all composite tray for Rx, batteries, rudder servos, etc
All composite landing gear plate integrated into fuselage
Carbon fiber firewall
All composite root rib
C/F stab tubes
Anodized wing tube 40/1mm
Aluminum landing gear
The most important feature in this model is a use of integrated composite formers and ribs. By doing this, Krill managed to built a lighter, stronger and professionally looking airplane. Only 1.2% of this plane is made out of wood, so this is really an ALL COMPOSITE MODEL.
This model is for all diehards and sport pilots, flying either scale aerobatics or 3D. Just like it's larger brother, it's flying characteristics are incredible. But it's up to you to make this judgement. You can already see some the major differences inside the airplane. They have been carefully calculated and discussed with Krill's company pilot and designer Gernot Bruckmann. Airplane was designed for FAI - F3M category and IMAC in USA.
Wings, elevators and rudder are installed
Removable rudder
Clear canopy is glued into frame
Cowl installed, using 6 x 5mm bolts
Landing gear is pre drilled
All control horns openings are pre cut for our CNC machined f/g horns
Specs:
Wingspan: 102.3" (2600mm)
Length: 96.5" (2450mm)
Flying Weight: 24.3 lbs (11 kg)
Wing Area: 128 dm2
Wing Loading: 90 g/dm2
Engine: 80-120cc
Required: 5 channel radio & 8 servos
