Description:

Just in time for your favorite R/C modelers Christmas or Holiday Gift for the Winter Build, this is a RARE, NEW-IN-BOX PICA DUELIST 240 KIT, COMPLETE AND IN PRISTINE CONDITION! INCLUDED ARE A COMPLETE NEW SET OF RHOM-AIR TRICYCLE RETRACTABLE LAND GEAR, COMPLETE WITH ALL NECESSARY FITTINGS AND TUBING. The kit is available without the landing gear for $350.00

Long considered one of the very best handling twin engine radio-controlled airplanes in the hobby, exactly what Pica designed the DUELIST 240 to be. The DUELIST combines sleek, elegant appearance with simple, straight-forward structure, making it ideal for a beginner flyers' second low-wing airplane and first twin. It's design has made for many successful 'kit-bashing' efforts to model scale planes such as the 'Mosquito', Cessna 310, etc.

This new, complete kit contains laser-cut balsa and lite ply parts, pre-shaped parts, assorted hardwood, plywood, and aileron torque rods. Also included are full-size plans and an instruction manual with isometric drawings.

The Duelist 240 will span 67" with a 14" wing cord. The fuselage is 54" long. It will require a minimum 4 channel radio to control ailerons, elevator, rudder, and throttle. A 6-9 channel radio system (Futaba, Speckrum, Hitec, etal) would allow for retractable landing gear and/or flaps. The kit is designed to accept either fixed or retractable landing gear; flaps are easily added with a bit of modification. The design calls for two .25-.40 2-cycle, or two .52-56 4-cycle nitro engines, such as those offered by OS Engines, Saito, Thunder Tiger, Magnum, and others. An electric conversion using 32-40 size outrunner motors is an interesting and very doable possibility.

Included with the Duelist is a complete, NIB, set of Rhom-Air tricycle retractable landing gear, just the ticket to complete this beautiful aircraft. (Note: the front retract pictured was removed from another new package, it is brand new. The mains in that package were 90 degree twist & rotate, not suitable for the Duelist).

Retract Specs:

- 90 degree straight rotation, mains and front

- Front gear is steerable; control horn is installed

- Gear legs are 5/32"x7 3/4" (mains), 5/32"x~7" front, hardened piano wire (builder cuts to desired length)

- Included is an air tank, air tubing, air connectors, up/down control valve (micro servo operated), filler valve, and filler valve fill fitting w/tubing.

This kit is long out of production, and finding one this pristine is rare. Buy it now before someone else does!!!

Buyer pays shipping from 94505: 10 lbs; 38"x12"x7"

Thanks for looking!

Sounds good, let's figure out the shipping costs. Please provide me with your shipping address and I'll send you the total. I presume that you want it with the retracts.
