    Item Description:

    I have for sale this plane and another (separate Ad) that I originally put together for our club's "Model Aviation" class that we taught through the Monmouth County Park System a few months ago.   I am always amused when I read Ads that say that the owner "no longer needs a trainer", but I certainly don't need three!  I am selling this plane to free up some much needed hangar space.

    Up front is an Enya 40 SS motor with the dual needle valve carb.  It runs great.  For control is a Futaba Skysport 4 channel transmitter and a "R127" receiver, with (4) FP-S-148 servos driving the control surfaces, and a 600 maH battery to power the whole thing.  Not shown in the photos, but included, is a Futaba "wall-wort" charger to charge the receiver and transmitter  battery.

    On this particular aircraft, I have 3 1/2 inch wheels, that will make taking off from grass fields in need of a cut effortless.  The previous owner of the airframe replace the M4 wing bolts with 1/4" nylon bolts.

    I would rate the mechanical condition of this plane as good to very good.  The covering is a slightly different story.  The wing is good but the fuselage covering could use some attention.  I did fix the "weave" covering on the top and right side of the nose, but the left side and the "windows" could also use a sprucing up.  I may get to it before this ad expires, or just provide the new owner with enough of the hard to come by "weave" covering to clean up the covering themselves.

    I would be willing to "part out" this setup, but the airframe must be part of the deal, as that is the part that takes up the space I am trying to free up!    Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.  Inspection and flight demo can be arranged.

    There is no delivery on this item.  Pickup can be at my home in Manalapan, N.J. or at my flying field in Colts Neck, N.J.  I would also be willing to meet the buyer at another reasonable location for round trip gas and toll expenses agreed to and paid for in advance. Contact me before you make an offer to get a quote so that you can then include it in your offer.


    Shipping: There is no shipping on this item. It is available for pickup in the Englishtown, or Colts Neck N.J. (flying field) areas at no charge. I would be willing to meet the buyer at another reasonable location for round trip gas and toll expenses agreed to and paid for in advance. Contact me before you make an official order to get a quote.

    Payment: PayPal, certified and bank checks are accepted. Cash is also accepted if you are meeting me at my home or flying field. Unless previously agreed to, payment must be received within 3 days of your offer being accepted.

    Return Policy: All sales are final. Unless otherwise stated in this item's description, no other warranties have been expressed or implied other than the item will be delivered in the condition stated above. Please, ask any questions BEFORE you make an offer.

    Feedback: I will gladly leave positive feedback once the same is received. I do not consider our transaction to be complete until you have received your merchandise and are satisfied. Although this item is sold as is, I have done my best to represent it as honestly as I could. If you are not satisfied for some reason, contact me before leaving feedback.

    Thanks for looking!

    Absolutely. We had a class of students flying these in our Model Aviation class. Even before I had this plane for sale, I've been recommending this airframe to new pilots looking to purchase their first trainer. The plane is very stable in the air and it's semi-symmetrical airfoil will allow for a little more fun once you have gotten past the basics. Many in our club use this plane in our fun fly events for this reason.

    Keep in mind that with a plane of this size, you will need an instructor on a buddy box to get you going. There are many club's in the area that can provide you with this, most, like mine (www.jcsportfliers.org), at no cost to members.
