    Item Description:

    Up for your consideration is a brand new in box, Morris Hobbies "Balsa Nova" 1.20 ARF.   I purchased this several years ago directly from Morris Hobbies when they were closing their doors for business.  I never got around to assembling it, but just recently lucked into a completely RTF version of this plane, and while I would like to keep this ARF in the box as a spare, I really would like to convert the one that is RTF to electric, and the funds from this sale will go a long way towards doing that.   BTW, this plane flies great.  Even I can knife edge it!



    When taking the pictures, I decided to do an inventory of all the components.  Much to my chagrin, the cowl and instruction manual were missing.  I do have a copy of the manual that I downloaded and will provide, and the cowl is available from Fiberglass Specialties.   There is also a stain on the top of the box due to whatever plane I had stored above it, but the contents of the box are pristine, and of course, you don't fly the box!



    Normally I would offer shipping as an option for this type of item, but due to the extremely large size of the box it comes in and the fact that it would need to be double boxed to ship safely, I am offering this item for local pickup only in the Englishtown NJ (07726) area.  I would be willing to meet a buyer somewhere at some reasonable distance away from here for pre-arranged and paid for round trip gas and tolls.  If you live somewhere between NJ and Boston, I do occasionally head up that way to visit my son, so something might be able to be worked out there too.



    Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and if you have ideas on shipping I would be willing to consider.

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

    In response to a hidden comment:

    The cost of the shipping isn't the issue, as a perspective buyer would be paying this anyway. I don't have a problem taking a trip to UPS or FedEx, the issue is really the ability to get this packed properly for safe transport.

    If someone really "screams" for this plane, I might consider it. I would really feel uncomfortable about shipping it without double boxing it, and right now I don't have a box large enough or enough cardboard to make one that I could do this with.

    I'll be taking a trip to my local HS next week. If they have something lying around that would work I'll bring it home with me and revise the listing.

    Regards,

    It would not kill me if I did not sell this :). I flew this plane again on Sunday and it really is awesome!.

    I may have a lead on a used cowl though. A friend in my flying club has one he saved from One of his that he "re-kitted" I believe he said it was cut for a YS 4 stroke. I'll know more later this week.

    The photo of the Balsa Nova on the box...I have that airplane. Bought it from Robert at Morris Hobbies. I've been flying it for nearly 3 years and you are right...it flies GREAT. I bought the last 2 BN ARFs they had. If I could have only one R/C plane, it would be the Balsa Nova. It's a shame they are no longer available. You are asking a reasonable price, but I don't need another one....and I live a long ways from you.....Texas. Best Regards JC fasstflier@gmail.com
