Default What planes are these?

Just needing some help identifing some planes to determine if they are worth buying. I'm thinking the yellow one is an early generation Proud Bird and the other one is a Dego or something else based on the Mustang. He can't remember what they are but said they are about 3 years old and are composite. The red and black one appear to have conventional hinges and not skinned hinges which makes me think it is a foam core wing. I'm really just looking for a practice/beater type airframe because I am just now getting started into Q40.

Thanks for your help.

I think the yellow and red one is an old Jerry Small Kaze Killer from about 1994-95.

Thanks for the input guys.

I have followed them all three times on ebay and have talked to him several times trying to figure out if they are worth anything. This time he added the "best offer" option and I was trying to decide if I was going to make an offer. He has stated from the beginning that he'd ship but won't really give any kind of estimate on what it will cost.

94 - 95 well that is certainly older than the 3 years he indicated.

Again thanks for the input.

Lonnie, heads up - I had a friend ship me three planes in one box a while back - two old V-Vectors and a Rivets Q40, from Texas. It was about 150-160 bucks to ship them to my office.

Traded the Rivets to Eddie, already used up one of the vectors in Wichita.. one left!

Let us know if you pick up those two Q40's. I keep thinking I should fly a little Q40, but never seem to get motivated enough.

Gordon,
Thanks for the heads up. Shipping was something I couldn't nail him down on and part of the reason I decided not to make an offer. Besides the fact no one could really identify them.

I have a couple Q40's now and they have been a lot of fun the little bit I was able to fly them before it froze over.

Lonnie
