I have for sale this plane and another (separate Ad) that I originally put together for our club's "Model Aviation" class that we taught through the Monmouth County Park System a few months ago. I am always amused when I read Ads that say that the owner "no longer needs a trainer", but I certainly don't need three! I am selling this plane to free up some much needed hangar space.
Up front is an Enya 40 SS motor with the dual needle valve carb. It runs great. For control is a Futaba Skysport 4 channel transmitter and a "R127" receiver, with (4) FP-S-148 servos driving the control surfaces, and a 600 maH battery to power the whole thing. Not shown in the photos, but included, is a Futaba "wall-wort" charger to charge the receiver and transmitter battery.
On this particular aircraft, I have 3 1/2 inch wheels, that will make taking off from grass fields in need of a cut effortless. The previous owner of the airframe replace the M4 wing bolts with 1/4" nylon bolts.
I would rate the mechanical condition of this plane as good to very good. The covering is a slightly different story. The wing is good but the fuselage covering could use some attention. I did fix the "weave" covering on the top and right side of the nose, but the left side and the "windows" could also use a sprucing up. I may get to it before this ad expires, or just provide the new owner with enough of the hard to come by "weave" covering to clean up the covering themselves.
I would be willing to "part out" this setup, but the airframe must be part of the deal, as that is the part that takes up the space I am trying to free up! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. Inspection and flight demo can be arranged.
