    Item Description:

    Yellow Aircraft F-18C Hornet RTF W/O Turbine

    This is a kit built YA F-18C Hornet in Chippy Ho Paint Schemes with many scale details.

    It has won several award for best military jets, best scale jets.. A proven airframe for 160-180N size turbine.

    1. Full Ordnance - Missiles, drop tanks, pylons all included
    2. Functional Canopy
    3. Functional Airbrake
    4. Scale cockpit with Pilot
    5. All JR servos and RX

    Add Turbine, Bind and Go Fly

    Built by professional builder, over $10,000 invested. Priced to sell.

    This F18 is a kit built so it does not have the typical ARF type of aircraft look such as seam lines, non scale doors, etc. It's basically a very scale jet. The rudder and elevators control linkages are internal.

    It comes with functional canopy, air brake, operational tail hook. I still need to get the radio so I can charge it and open up the cockpit area.

    Usage factor - This is not a new jet. It's been around for many year. Excluding dust collected during storage, this jet appears to be about 70-75% new. It has the following damages

    1. Left wing tip - the missiles fin (has partial chips, missile rail crack) possible cause of damage due to wing tip scraping on the runway or transport.

    2 - 1 2x1' rough spot on the top of the hatch behind canopy. See photo. It seems to be some glue left on it or some thing like Antenna that came loose and left a rough spot on it.

    Landing gear. - The mechanical structures have no damages or bent, very little slop for the size. all door cylinders travels smoothly. all unbroken. main tires seem about 20-25% wore. Nose tires still have threads on it.

    Ordnance - Only missiles. Did not have the 3 drop tanks. Although I can see the functional pylon and release mechanism for the drop tanks.

    Engine bay - It has a tail pipe. a metal UAT tank. all fuel lines secured with blue tapes.

    Internal structures - No visibile cracks, are made of solid wood. Bottom corners of landing gear sections are all carbon fiber reinforced.

    Effort to make it air worthy: Check all control linkages, install turbine, replace battery. Change Receiver, fix minor cracks as described.

    WHY IT'S CRITICAL FOR BUYERS TO USE THE "MAKE OFFER" FORM VS. EMAIL

    I am very sorry if I mislead you to believe that you had a sale but I did this to warn you and others that paypal does not protect the seller. I was ripped off of a 1,236 dollar purchase with lots of proof and no help from paypal. If you read this thread you will see what has happen to me. I just may have saved you some serious money! if you think paypal protects you as a seller it doesn’t happen as I have learned the hard way. Paypal awards the buyer 99% of the cases here is the link.

    Dear Dave,

    Why did you rant on this posting about another deal you did with someone else? You might lose more than you expected.

    Mike is a good person to deal with if I had the funds I would have already bought this great jet.
