    Why Selling: Not flying, too many planes
     
    Willing to Trade: No

    Item Description:

    Well used SE5a. I purchased for $350 without an engine to try my hand at WW1 stuff. Installed a brand new Zenoah G-38 and flew it less then 10 times. Planes is RTF minus receiver and battery. Has a combo of futaba and power HD servos installed. Needs a little work to fly, re-solder one interplanetary strut, fix one broken tail support cable and re-glue the throttle pushrod support. That's it, 2 hours work and your flying. Really a decent looking, giant scale airplane that's almost ready to fly for about as low of a price as you'll find. No shipping, price is firm. It's a steal.

    I've flown it 7 times. Never crashed it myself. As the ad says, it's well used for$350.

    I don't want this to sound rude, but for $350 I suggest the plane be viewed in person. The kit sells for $428 + shipping and the new G-38 like this goes for $325. Even if you decided to strip and redo the entire plane it's still a steal.

    For that reason alone, I'm not willing to travel or meet any where or split anything up, negotiate etc. I may end up just donating it to my club for a raffle or sticking in my attic and forgetting about it.

    I hope everyone understands.

    Correct. Needs a battery and receiver. Solder the one connection on the interplane strut, secure the throttle pushrods and install a new tail wire and fly.
