Free and Cheap models - watch this space for updates
« on: August 09, 2018, 12:13:13 pm »
Yes, that's right - I'm going to be selling some awesome models for great prices, and also offering some models free to a good home.

So watch this space!

Just a teaser - the first free model is 1/4 scale, and the first model for sale is a 1234mm balse model of an RAF super WW2 fighter.

It will be first come, first served.

Going to take a guess at the first model for sale.  I think its the Hobby King balsa spitfire.  If I'm correct I'd like to buy it please :-).  This is going to be fun.. more clues please.

Fantastic!!  This is better than "The Price is Right".  How many tries do I get to guess where the decal point goes  ;)

Well Peter collected the first model for sale, my HK Spitfire. 

I have some models in my collection that I know I am just not going to get round to flying/building/repairing.  But I do like them. I will be offering them free to TEMAC members so that I get to see them fly, they stay in the club and someone can enjoy them rather than have them collect dust.

Next up is a Robbe Projeti that I haven't finished.....it has servos installed and it has been laminated with clear film.  It needs your motor (28mm inrunner) ESC and Rx to fly.

Who would like it?

OK, next up for sale is an FPV wing airframe. I watch Stephan and Eric fly their wings and they are brilliant. So I bought one and started to build it but after flying my Chaser C1 and Theory W, realize the wing I've got is not for me.

So, who wants a VAS Anubis SE airframe, fully laminated, with 2 metal gear servos for $60

Anubis SE has gone......

At least 4 new planes will be advertised this week.  Some very cheap, some may be free.  ;)

Keep watching.

$60 - PnP "Ready Made RC Nano Sky Hunter" with FPV set-up.

Just add your Rx and you're ready to fly from the pilot's seat, with a 600mW transmitter and 1000 TVL CCD camera.  Very easy and super fun to fly. 

Black EPP foam. 2204 2200kV motor and 20A ESC for 2-4S lipo (not included, I used 3S 1300mAh.)

Never crashed. $60

Hi Simon, Okay, I take it from you.
If you fly tomorrow Sunday, bring it alone.

Skyhunter is sold. So, next up......

Chaser C1 FPV wing for sale.  1200mm wingspan.

The model comes with servos, 30A ESC, 2200kV motor, Foxeer 650 tvl CCD camera and Foxeer 600mW vtx.  Just add your receiver and 3S lipo (I use 3000-4000mAh) and away you go!

This is a plug and play wing with all the FPV equipment required already installed. Never crashed, no damage. Flies awesome.

$140 or make me an offer  ;)
