I'm selling this for my club for an estate sale. There is no water or other kinds of damage. All aircraft parts appear to be there. I just received an electronic copy of the manual and I'll be confirming all the parts are there, but it'll probably take me a few days.

I have a source who would scan their plans and manual and email it so it could be printed at an office supply store. They would do that for $30. There could be a slight shift in the plan lines when scanned or printed, but there also might not be. There is another source who would sell their manual and plans for $60.

Buyer pays PayPal fees and shipping. I've quoted shipping from Atlanta to NY and it was close to $50 via USPS. I would guess going as far as CA or WA would be around $60-$75. There's no markup for handling or double-boxing. Buyer must pay for shipping insurance.

Update to this add:
I have a source who will supply the original plans for $45.Someone was kind enough to send a link of the manual to download. I have compared the contents of the kit to the parts list from Top Flite and Everything is there. For some reason, the parts list did have these items listed but, they are in the kit being sold:

Engine mount
Bag of hardware
Pushrods & Sleeves
CA Hinge Sheet

I'm attaching pics of the parts listing where I highlighted items as I compared them to the parts in the box. Where I could do so, I also wrote the parts list section name (ex. "DC Ply") and rubber-banded it to that group of parts.

To give an idea of shipping, I will list quotes to major cities using my discount with the USPS. It seems there is usually only a few dollars difference between 2-day and 5-day shipping. The buyer can also send me a label if they have a way to ship it cheaper. There wonít be any mark-up for shipping, handling, etc. except rounding to the nearest dollar. Iíve estimated a size & weight increase for when itís double-boxed and rounded up to the next inch and pound so these are worst case examples. Specs are: 50 X 12 X 6Ē and 14 lbs.

Shipping should be between $57 and $91 (Seattle and Sacramento). . .

Brooklyn, NY 10019 - $57
Dallas, TX 85209 - $57
Bangor, ME 04401 - $70-$72
Miami, FL 33135 - $43
Minneapolis, MN 55430 - $57
Wichita, KS 67212 - $57
Sun City, AZ 85373 - $71-$74
Seattle, WA 98106 - $86-$91
Sacramento, CA 95814 - $86-$91

Iím listing the cheapest rates I can get but this package is large and shipping is out of my control. Iíve compared USPS to UPS and Fedex (where I donít have an account) and USPS is always cheaper. Iíve also checked Greyhound, where I have an account and still USPS is the cheapest, Iíve found.

You might be able to find a person who does LTL with a small trailer/car or, maybe you could find a pet transporter. If theyíre already making the trip and have room in their vehicle, they may consider the job. There are sites where you can bid your project and see if anyone will take it. I canít remember what they are offhand. Or, maybe there are modelers coming south for the weather. Any of these options will be at the buyerís risk.

There are enough cities (above) to get a ďballparkĒ of what shipping would be for your city. Please be courteous and refrain from asking for specific quotes until you verify the ballparks above are something you would consider paying. Thanks, in advance, for your courtesy.
