    Item Description:

    . Selling my Great Planes Tiporare Pattern Ship in the stock original Great Planes box label exacting color scheme. I am guessing here but I built this back in the late 80s, flew pattern here locally in California and never took better than 3rd place. Tough competition backs in the day that or I needed way more practice time. Totally fun to participate in, great community lots of RVs and BBQs.

    These planes are known for precision flying at warp speed, they chew up so much airspace such that when you fly, everybody would rather wait and watch and not be the next ballistic missile recipient. Originally powered by the OS61 pumper with a mac tuned pipe- they have a particular sound and the vertical is well never ending.


    Airplane includes everything shown in the pictures, Futuba Servos, Fiber Engine mount, dave brown mechanical retracts, futaba gear servos, double pull ele/rud controls. The plane is all fiberglass body painted in dupont colors that matched the monokote colors almost exactly. We took the color scheme off the box picture so perfectly it was always the question, is that the one they used in the advertisement? A couple scratched paint areas on the fuse have been touched/ airbrushed . It has that "painted in the 80s" fade to the white paint.

    The wing is solid foam covered by balsa sheeting, again all original monokote coverings. I remember using the bottom of Pepsi cans for the wheel wells. Access openings for the aileron Servos, push pull ele/rud controls. The fiberglass fuselage is in mint condition, the bird has never crashed and most of my landing had to be near the line. Overall in very good to excellent shape almost 100% original.

    I see these old pattern planes built up and flying are worth bank.


    66; wingspan 720 sqin wing, 54; long of pure adrenaline fun.

    This has been changed from Just Local Pickup to Able to ship- you pay for shipping
    box is 67 x 26 x 12 at 20.5lbs,,,
    we have provided 3 quotes, Florida $250, So Cal $220 and Colorado $225- I am sure it can be done way less expensive. I can use your shipping memo as I am sure a business account will save better than half on the cost compared to any old guy getting a quote on line.

    Greg, I guess anything is possible. Boxing this up the box, foam and tape going to be $34 just in materials cost. I have never shipped a box this big, what carrier did they use to get your refrigerator plane? Do you have a way to achieve any level of discounts in shipping costs as I do not have an account. send over your address information let me estimate the box size and see what it might cost to ship. Nice part I have today off so building a box is not out of the question.

    Greg, just doing a quick scan on UPS and FedEx I am not sure this is worth shipping. UPS shows $241 and Fedex shows $279 for a box that is 70"x20"x20" at 15lbs. I think that is too much.
    we would be better off calling uber

    Jack, if you box it up and protect everything, I will take it at your asking price and pay for the FedEx shipment to Los Angeles. Is the shipping you quoted for shipment to Los Angeles. Heading out with wife, will be back by 8pm this evening.
