    Item Description:

    Remote Control Airplane

    This is a custom built remote control airplane. It has a 62" wing span, and measures 43 ½" from tip of nose to end of tail. It uses a JR Circus Series IV 4 Channel R/C Radio System AM 75 MHz.

    I am selling this because due to medical problems I am no longer able to fly it.

    This plane needs:

    • some repair to the tail which was damaged during one of our numerous moves around the USA (see last picture below)
    • a JR JRPC221 Tx/Rx Charger ($28.75 delivered on eBay). The original one was lost during a move
    • a muffler for the engine (this engine is designed to use exhaust back pressure to pressurize the fuel tank)

    It has an Irvine 40 glowplug engine. Recommended fuel mixtures are:

    • For Sport Flying:
      • 80% Methanol and 20% Castor Oil
    • For Contest Flyiing:
      • 65% Methanol + 20% Castor Oil + 15% Nitromethane

    Engine Specifications:

    • Engine Type:  2-Stroke
    • Displacement: 0.400 cu. in.
    • Cylinders:  :  1
    • Displacement: 0.400 cubic inches
    • Bore: 0.807 (in.)
    • Stroke In: 0.768 (in.)
    • Shaft: 6-32
    • Low RPM: 2800
    • High RPM: 17000
    • 1.200 bhp
    • Weight (no muffler): 13.90 oz.

    I am asking $100.00 for the plane and radio system. The Irvine Operating Instructions for the glowplug engine will be furnished on a CD-Rom.

    Thank you for your eMail.

    If this plane was not made from a Sig Kommander kit, it must have been fashioned after that plane.

    Thanks again for the info!
