I'm offering for sale my Top Models 150 Scale Porter for $1850.00. Sorry but not interested in trades. It was assembled last year and has 8 flights. Never crashed or banged up, always stored in temperature controlled environment. The interior portion of landing gear mounts have been beefed up and 'glassed for additional support. All doors are fully functional, with lots of room left inside for a camera or whatever. Flaps are fully functional. The tow kit is not installed but will go with the plane. (No gliders in this area so didn't see need to install). All battery connections are 75 amp Power Pole connectors. (A spark arrestor is also installed so you don't get that 'pop' when connecting up). I will also supply two sets of connectors that have banana jacks on the ends so you can charge the batteries. All you need is to supply your own RX battery. I'll knock 120.00 off if you prefer to use another receiver.
One thing I'll be straight up about. I couldn't figure out the install of the included tailwheel, so 'rolled my own' with a CF arm and J&L wheel. Taxiing is a bit sluggish, so buyer may want to add different springs, or add a steering servo, or just let it freewheel. I'll also include the tailwheel that came with the kit if buyer wants to install it instead. I just haven't had time to revisit it.
It can easily go vertical and has a good authoritative feel through flight. Winds and cross-winds are no problem, I've seen none prettier when performing a slip onto the runway. Very cool looking coming in almost sideways at half-flaps. Not had opportunity to try full-flap steep approaches, but am sure it would be equally impressive. Weather and obligations the past couple years have sharply decreased the time I have to fly, no point in this beautiful plane just sitting in a room when someone could be having some fun with it. Have well over 2K invested, so this is a great deal for someone looking for a large tow-capable electric aircraft. PM me with questions and will do my best to answer. More pics, including build pics available on request. Thanks for looking!
THIS IS LOCAL PICKUP ONLY, I WILL NOT RESPOND TO SHIPPING QUERIES. I WILL TRAVEL UP TO 75 MILES FROM FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS TO MEET BUYER.
