Fiberclassics Eurosport for sale, complete less engine &
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guys, I'm selling my Eurosport. This is NOT the composite ARF version, this is Fiberclassic's venture at the Eurosport. They had started working on a thrust vector system but it never came to fruition. As a result, the back end looks totally different, some say ugly, some say good looking.
Now for the info on the jet.
I bought this from a fellow in Texas who I will not name names, but I ended up getting gouged So, after paying $1750 (with shipping) USD, I ended up having to buy a tailpipe (tam's pipe) redo ALL the plumbing and radio gear, repaired a broken gear mount, cleaned out the inside of the jet which was full of melted foam peanuts, and then I repainted it.
Now, the paint might look great in pictures, and really, in person, it's not bad, it's got that far from perfect but perfect from far look to it.
The wings had some of the paint wrinkle a bit, I don't know what the builder used to paint this, but on the wings I could not get the paint to not react, it's not noticable from 5 feet, but I am trying to be straight up here.
Servo's are all good servo's, it has 8611's on the canards, elevons, and rudder. Everything works. I put in new valves for the retracts and replaced all the lines and T fittings. Not sure of the make of the wheels, but the struts and retracts are robart.
Kevlar tanks in the bird, BVM UAT (put in a brand new one since the original one was leaking).
Basically, I put about another $400 into the jet and about 25 hours I suppose.
It flies great, not a light bird like the Comp ARF ones, but then it's also much stronger. The fin is removable as well.
I flew it with an AMT280SP with 32lbs of thrust, and I could rock and roll at full power the entire flight with no signs of flutter or anything like that like you can have in the Comp ARF version. The downside to this is it does not have the same almost 3D capability as the Comp ARF eurosport does either.
Anyway, the only reason for selling it, is I don't have a large vehicle for it, I drive a 1998 firebird or a harley, an 8 foot jet, although it does fit in the firebird, is not fun to pack around. This is a BIG bird. I want to get something smaller.
I'm offering the jet RTF less the receiver and turbine. I suppose for the right price I would sell with the engine, but I REALLY love the AMT's so I wouldn't just give that away. For that matter, for the right price, I'll sell it complete with transmitter and everything too. If you're interested in it that way send me an email.
As for RTF minus engine and receiver, I want $2000cdn FIRM plus shipping. I will be in Red Deer, Alberta until November 11, 2005. Then I am moving to Abbotsford BC. I can ship it but it's a HUGE jet, I would prefer pickup, I'll meet within a couple hours, or I'll deliver it on the way to Abbotsford if you're on the way (you can meet me at a particular city on the way there if you want as long as it's not off the path I'm on)
Here are some pics of it.

Somebody's gotta buy this thing... Its a good deal!
Seriously now, an average paint job in Jeremy's terms is better than some of the painted in the mould job's I've seen. I've flown the distant cousin of this jet (Comp-ARF) and I can say these jets are very easy to fly. Expect a cruise speed around 200 Kmh. They do need power though, as the drag builds up very vast at high angles of attack. Mid 20's to mid 30's for thrust is ideal...
Good luck to whoever scoops this one!

bump, still available, moving in 8 days and would really prefer to not have to haul this with me.
I will also consider trades for other turbine jets that are a little smaller than this thing :P
