Up for sale is my well taken care of, but flown BVM Bandit. This is the original Mk.I model, and not the MkII where they changed the wing mounting system.
I purchased this about 5 years ago, with only a handful of flights on it from the previous owner. Pulled most of the gear out and re-did it as it was not up to my standards. Flown about 150 flights since then.
Has a JetCat P-70 in it, which was converted to kero-start. Powers it very well, and is extremely fuel efficient. I get about 14 minute flights on it with the larger front tank. I'll include the GSU with the airplane. Spektrum 12120 Powersafe Receiver NOT INCLUDED TM1000 Telemetry module Included with GPS and JetCat telemetry sensors. All JR servos, and JR extensions. I can get the exact servo models if you want, but I just didn't want to undo all of the hatches at this time to see what exactly they were. All wiring is neat and organized, with the turbine shroud painted to match. Main gear and brakes have a quick detach air system which makes assembly/disassembly super easy. Few minor scratches on the bottom of the stabs and on wingtips. One dent in vertical fin. Purely cosmetic. All shown in photos. Also have the standard foil-like wing bags, and stab bags. Do not have a vertical fin bag.
Price is $4,300
Considering the basic airframe/gear/misc accessories (no turbine or electronics!) costs that much, this is a Smoking deal on a VERY well taken care of airplane, and one that is a blast to fly.
I just don't fly it enough, so no reason for it to sit here and collect dust. My loss is your gain, this is a steal on a great flying model.
- Not willing to ship (I don't want to build a crate and deal with the hassle of shipping such a large model, only to risk damage). - Local pickup only. Willing to drive 1-1/2 hours from zipcode 34288 to meet, or as mentioned, deliver to Florida Jets. I can also provide a DX-18 program if you are flying with that particular radio.
