Hi guys, as I'm looking around my workshop looking to clean things up a little I ran into two projects that I never finished.

First is a Bell X-1, it's a scratch build but it's almost ready for strip planking, and it looks pretty cool. It's designed to have a brushless out runner in the nose (which is installed and included) and an Aerotech solid rocket fuel engine in the back end (tube installed, perfect fit for 24mm RC loads).

This was inspired by the X-1 built and flown by this modeller in the states (Mac Hodges).

Mine has brushless up front, rocket in the back. Your choice how you want to fly it. Since this is a scratch build, it would be up to you to decide how best to finish it off. It's been sitting in my shop for long enough. I've moved on to other things, someone needs to finish this.

$50 covers the electronics installed. Brushless, HS-55 servo and another digital servo and some hardware. I have the control surfaces cut for it, and I will look around to see what other parts I may have, but it's mostly there. Sheeting, control setup and power to be finish, then go fly!

IF YOU BUY THE BELL X-1 I'll throw in a partially finished scratch build of a pusher F-16 with canopy. This was scaled up from free flight plans and should be a decent flyer on modest power.
