    Item Description:


    Lanier Predator II - Quickie 500 Racer

    For your consideration is a Lanier Predator II, quickie 500 Racer.  It came as a "package deal" with another plane I recently purchased, and despite the larger than normal wheels I put on her in an attempt to be able to fly her from my home field, the grass has not, and probably will never be suitable for ROG.  Bad for me, good for someone who actually is interested in racing her!

    This aircraft is built from an ARF, unfortunately as with most Lanier aircraft, no longer manufactured.  Overall, I would rate the overall condition of the plane a "7-8 out of ten".  There was some hangar rash that I repaired prior to my attempt to get her in the air, but overall the structural integrity and the condition of the covering is what I would consider "good". 

    Although I was not able to fly this plane, I was able to test the engine.  It runs great, and is the class correct Thunder Tiger 40 Pro. The last time I ran the engine I did not take any RPM readings, as my original intent was to keep the plane for a while.  The engine originally came with what I believe to be a "Nelson" muffler, which can be substituted for the current Thunder Tiger muffler seen in the photos for an additional $50.  I do have the original backplate for the crankcase which is included with this item, as long as you remind me to give it to you!

    I currently have a JR receiver on channel 17 installed in the plane.  I do have a  Futaba high band receiver that originally came with the plane that I can substitute, but as I have no way of testing it, it is being offered strickly "as is".

    I am willing to "part out" this plane, and in fact would not mind keeping this engine.  Be sure to be specific about what pieces you are interested in when making an offer so I can respond properly.

    This plane is available for inspection/ground tests at my home or my home flying field in Colts Neck N.J. If more detailed photos are desired, or if you have any questions, please post your request here or PM me and I will try to get back to you within 24-48 hours.



    Shipping  This item is too large to ship and is for local pickup only.  I am willing to meet a buyer within a 2 hour round trip drive for pre-arranged and pre-paid round trip gas and tolls.

     Offers  I will favor those that are at my offer price (or better, haha J ), or require me to travel the least to meet the buyer.

     Payment:   Paypal is my preferred method of being paid.  Certified check or Postal Money orders are also OK.  Cash on pickup is also good.  Payment must be received within 7 business days of accepting your offer.

     Return Policy:  All sales are final. No warranties have been expressed or are implied.  Please, ask any questions BEFORE you make an offer.

     Feedback I will leave feedback for you once our transaction completes.  Please remember to do the same for me once you've received your item and are satisfied with its purchase.

    Thanks for looking!

    The following was sent to a member looking to have this item shipped to Tennessee (zip 37129). Since others may ask, I figured this info might be useful.

    ... The bigger issue here though is shipping. Without actually trying to fit this in a box (that I would have to make), the price would be either $30 to ship (w/Insurance) or $69 (w/Insurance) depending on how small a box this would fit into. The bare minimum size would be 53x16x11, but if I had to increase either the width or the height (the two smaller numbers) by just one inch it would be enough to throw the shipping cost from the lower to the higher number, and I won't know until I actually try to box this plane up if I can get away with the smaller number .....
