    Item Description:


    Tower Hobbies "Fun 51", RTF

    This particular aircraft is a built from kit, a Tower Hobbies Fun 51 airplane done up in a highly visible,  orange pseudo-military scheme.  Overall, I would rate the overall condition of the plane a "7-8 out of ten".

    The landing gear is a bit on the tall side, perfect for those longer grass fields and "high alpha", slow landings.  The engine, an O.S. 46 LA runs well.  BTW, don't be fooled into thinking this engine is on the small side, it flies this plane with authority!  The dry weight of this plane is just over 4 lbs.

    The plane currently has what I remember to be a JR R600 receiver on channel 49, driving 5 "premium" servos off a 2500 MaH NiMH battery.  The battery was recently discharge tested to over 2400 MaH (see photos).  This plane originally came with a Futaba RD127 receiver on channel 38 which can be substituted back in, if requested.  I also have other receiver crystals for the JR Rx that I would be willing to substitute at no charge.

    I am willing to "part out" this plane, but quite frankly for all the effort it would take, I can't imagine any dollar savings would be worth it to install your own equipment.

    This plane is available for inspection/ground tests at my home and for demo/flight tests at 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 respond to offers in the order in which they arrive.  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 bid.

     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!
