    Why Selling: Lost Intrest
     
    Willing to Trade: No

    Item Description:

    I'm selling a partially built Fly Eagle Jet F-18 1/6 Twin (can also be setup for a single large turbine).
    I have lost interest in completing this jet and have decided to stick to sports jets most for easy of maintenance.

    Here is a video of My Jet:



    There was some slight shipping damage but I have fixed it by west systems epoxy and carbon fiber, its now very strong. I will include all 4 colors of touch up paint should you need to touch up anything.

    This is is version 3 of the jet, it DOES NOT HAVE HONEY COMB FORMER/RIBS for the elevators, instead they are 3 plywood rail ribs with a teflon block. It does not use the aluminum tray.

    Dual Carbon Bypasses are included, however, the jet does not have full ducting from the intake to the turbines so I would suggest probably just using the bottom parts.

    I can include 8x7980 Servos that I was planning on using on this plane, they are already installed on both ailerons and the flaps the remaining 4 are in the case, if you would like all 8 servos please add $1000.00 otherwise I can use them on my other jets. If not I'll take the servos out of the wings.

    I will also include a hydraulic conversion kit for the retracts, you'll need this to make sure you can cycle the gear.

    A full light kit with new controller is included, looks really nice and also has a custom cover for the ailerons.

    This version does NOT have slats, people that have flown it said that SLATS are useless on it so I ordered the version without SLATS.

    The plane seems nice and strong I have seen it Fly in Houston, this was version 2 with the honey comb elevator ribs:




    Have about $6,500.00 in it with all the upgrades, Asking $5,300.00

    I can ship insured in a wood crate to almost any freight carrier terminal Shipping cost crated are $275.00

    Ohh the jet has a weathered paint job from the factory & Elevators are counter balanced already for you.

    Is this the one with the elevator servo mounts that are built wrong in your build thread?

    No,

    I thought the servos go in face inward, but they are supposed to go face outward:

Did you purchase a FEJ 1/6 F-18 Diamond Back Single w/lights from a seller in LA? I have heard about all the problems with FEJ and the FA18. I am seeking to build friends with others in my area that have this jet. I am also prior service U.S. MARINE had worked on the F/A18 hornet as as Weapons Armament Ord Specialist. I very fond of this aircraft and want to obtain one to build. Please email me back at crome4545@aol.com or contact me at 832 496 4298. Thank you and happy flying.
