Surplus inventory, but perfect for the C-ARF Classic or Ultra Lightning Jets
Willing to Trade:
PROLINK UPGRADE: Aren't you sick of those Behoted struts and Intairco wheels and brakes that came with your Lightning? Sick of the Square Wheel bounce and sliding sideways to a stop after every landing? Stop throwing money at a loosing scenario! You CAN do better!
Upgrade right now to these ProLink struts with BVM's Mig 15, 4 inch Wheels and BVM Brake System! You'll absolutely love how well they perform! The brakes stop the airplane more evenly and with a lot less (or zero) sliding. Excellence in machining, very tough, very reliable!
I've put about 75 flights on this pair I've got listed; yours for little more than half the price I paid for these parts. Current tires installed are still usable, but I'm also including a second NIB pair of replacement tires from BVM (still sealed in their BVM bags).
I had to slightly modify the bottom link of each strut to accept an alignment pin the the hole drilled in the BVM Brake Hub (anti-rotation), so all of that work is done for you.
You may want to upgrade your Behotec Retracts with the new four set screw Trunions (available from Dreamworks for $62 a pair). This alone is a huge improvement over the sorry 8mm pin affair that snap and break so easily. You could hog out the original Behotec Trunions to accept the 1/2 inch strut, but for $62, I wouldn't mess with it. No big deal either way.
These parts all combined (not including shipping) Brand New are more than $423.00. Yours here now for $300 for the works, plus a little shipping cost.
New: ProLink 1/2 to fit Lightning $205 from Dreamworks New: Mig 15 4 Wheels $120 per pair from BVM (w/1/4 Oil-lite Bronze Bearings) New: Brake Hubs to fit Mig 15 Wheels $75 per pair from BVM New: Replacement rubber tires $23 per pair from BVM

Stop beating up the airplane and the brain damage trying to make those Behotec Struts and Wheels work anymore!

Paul, sorry my friend. I have zero interest in breaking up this matched set of BVM wheels, BVM Brakes and the ProLink Struts. The three pieces work beautifully together for either the Classic or the Ultra Lightning.
