Well this is a bit of fun !!
My Eflight shoestring, set up for EF1 pylon. It's been recovered in the infamous red white and blue colour scheme. I couldn't believe how heavy the factory covering was between removing that and the pilot which was solid cast it lost a 1/4 of a pound in weight.

Well flown it would be a competitive model in the EF1 pylon class which by the way is coming up in a couple of weeks.

It hasn't done a lot of racing as I mostly fly q-500 class but it is a great model, flies nicely and is quite slick when it comes to putting on the pace. It is in excellent A1 condition ready to race or fly as quick sports model.

Comes with a good quality spectrum receiver all ready installed and if you part with 200 you can have 3 2600 lipo packs to go with it.

It also has a castle creations 75a esc and the motor is the Eflight pylon motor made for the class. It also has been fitted with nice Hitech servos.

   

Here it is racing at maitland

Here is a project for someone. Alas time and space doesn't allow for this one either.

I was sure I was going to get time to repair this but I didn't in the last 12 months so it must go. I've got a full years worth of building Large scale race planes so this one is going really cheep.

The airframe is free basically it's up for only the second hand price of the gear.

It comes with G160 motor that has had the windings potted, the magnets grouted and been carefully balanced. This is a mighty and bullet proof electric motor!! It has a really good ESC no timing issues just sheer grunt.

It has all the 10Kg digital metal gear servos in place good hardware and set up nicely.

Comes with an FRsky telemetry RX so you don't have to worry about battery monitoring. It runs happily on 12S or 10S if you like, it can hover no probs at all and it's a great aerobatic machine with no nastiness about the way it flies!

Here's the catch it needs repair to the bottom of the fuselage after a hard downwind landing at Cowra a couple of years ago. I'm sure someone can get it flying again. I'd sure like to see it!!

For $120 it a bargain the box cost nearly half that to make.

This is how it is at the moment tucked away in its big foam box. I have a spare cowl for it as well.

   


Here's some video of it flying

$50 What a bargain concidering it comes with a Spectrum AR6100e receiver grunty ESC all servos ready to roar!!

Here we have one of the quicker varients of the venerable Skyfun jet

This one has had the canopy repaired after it came off and had a little encounter with the prop. It's all good now tho'. It has had the elevons replaced with wooden ones as this was a weakness with these machines.

Possibly the last go hard machine from back in the days when Samste, Gbanger, Kizza and my self went through a stage of throttle stick bending and high reving outrunners.

It can run on 3S but really sings with High C rated 1800 4S

Only $40

In it's Day this was quite a high performance glider

It's set up with ailerons and flaps it's about 2.5m span

No servos airframe only and you will need to get a rod for the wing joiner but that is easy to find.

It's nice and light and slippery just crying out for electric conversion

The covering will need a little iron just to get the wrinkles nice and straight again

For sale large very light scratch built UAV pusher style airframe
I would love to keep this but it just takes up a bit too much space.
Wings are foam fuselage is a solid piece of foam

Comes with motor ESC servos and an FRsky RX

Flies great it's really easy to fly and would be a breeze at McCoy park.
There is some minor damage to the nose wheel mount but still it's a bargain at $100

Here's a link
