    F3A Plane in Japan for sale $3,300

    Hello all,
    I found this F3A plane "Salute" for sale on Yahoo Japan Auctions.
    I thought you all might enjoy the pics.
    I really like the neatness of the receiver and battery setup inside the fuse.
    Not sure of the history of the Salute, to me it looks like a Naruke design.
    I found a web site that sells the Plane Pit Stand shown in the pics.
    I need to win the lottery and fly over to Japan!

    Retracts- I hope they don't make a comeback.

    Don't fret it Frankie. We have a solution for the long spindly legs of today's pattern plane. Retracts do cost some weight though compared to composite conventional gear we use nowadays.

    Nevertheless, retracts clean a model up. However, a cleaned up pattern model is not the answer in today's schedules. The foward ventral area adds to knife edge command and control

    Hey Frank, with hands finally repaired, I am getting the itch to fly again

    Here is another link for the "Pit Assistant" table as it is called.

    http://www2.cnet.ne.jp/yamatoz/

    If you hold your cursor over a hotlink across the top, you will see the link for:
    "pit_assistant" (lays on the ground) Y32,500 or approx $338.
    "new_product1" (table type) Y42,000 or approx $437.

    I really like the DAX RC F3A plane Freedom shown on this page.
    A link page on the DAX web site leads to the "Pit Assistant" page.

    Exploring on some of these Japan web sites reveals interesting items sometimes.

    The link for DAX RC is : http://www2.ocn.ne.jp/~dax/
