Trio of Prepared U/C Models W/ Throttled Motors

• This listing is a little different in that I’m describing three separate models all in the same paragraph. The reason for this is that they’re all U/C (as in line control) models and all are powered by .40 c.i. two cycle, carbureted glow motors. All three were offered as ARF models and manufactured under the Top Flite brand…and details are readily accessed via the internet. They are first the 50.5” ‘Nobler’, the 54” ‘Tutor II’ and the most recent addition to their line, the 56.5” ‘Score’. All three come with wing flaps operating inversely with the elevators for rapid pitch changes. Both the Nobler and Score models feature built-up fuselages and wings (removable on the Score) while the Tutor II model uses a profile fuse. On the latter, I connected the engine carburetor throttle to a horn fixed on the fuselage through a miniature turnbuckle with opposing threads in a manner that allows easy and safe adjustment of the engine RPM so it’s not always necessary to fly at full throttle. Incorporated into the Nobler model is a novel three wire bellcrank which is designed to work with a three wire control handle (originally by J. Roberts, circa early seventies) with the third wire operating the throttle for in-flight control. In the Score model, I tried to go one step further by incorporating a micro single conversion FM receiver, micro servo, small battery and switch used to drive the throttle arm. The idea was to hold the transmitter in a position I could comfortably work the throttle stick and fly the model with the other…haven’t tried it yet but that was the idea. Only the Tutor II model has been flown but the other two are ready to go as well. Obviously I would prefer consummating a deal for all three to the same buyer but that may not prove feasible and I may have to sell them individually. Where we’re not breaking up the family, the bulk purchase price for which I would sell all three is $225. On an individual basis, we can open up some dialogue. I am listing several prepared radio controlled fixed and rotary wing (helicopter) models on this site suggesting sell process that I feel are fair. If the interest is sincere, I will negotiate fairly such that, if common ground can be found, both parties come away from the consummated transaction feeling they’ve been treated that way. Realistically, I know I can not expect to recover anywhere near the original cost of each but, that said, I will not entertain even for a moment offers that I deem as entirely unrealistic and motivated by pure opportunism.
