    Stumbled on a VORTEX!!!

    I bought this Vortex with a new Nelson from a poor sap who had no idea what they were!!! HAAA! For $800, I basically stole it from him! Wahoooo! Nothing like taking candy from a baby!!!!!!!

    Yup Vorper, better make sure the fuse is reinforced till the cow's come home, or it won't last long.

    RE: Stumbled on a VORTEX!!!

    maybe the OP is the poor sap lol

    Still a used plane with new engine isnt much over 1000-1100 so 800 isnt that great of a deal is it?

    RE: Stumbled on a VORTEX!!!

    It is a JOKE! The plane is a cheap Viper, NOT an $800 Vortex. The engine is a cheap ThunderTiger .40, NOT a $425 Nelson. It is a AMA 424 setup, NOT a 428 setup. I DID NOT buy it from anyone - just JOKING. I put this together for our local races to look like a VORTEX! JOKE, Just a JOKE.

    Kurt

    P.S. This was just a joke, and most got it. But for those who did not, it was a joke. A joke I tell you.
