SOLD F3B/F3F/Slope 2.8m CNC All Carbon Wing Gliders
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am selling two F3B/F3F/Slope gliders. These are fully molded and were made in CNC aluminum molds. They are unique as they have a full carbon skin wing (not just the d-box) over CNC cut foam core, spar, then pressed in the molds. This makes them about the best thing you can fly on rough slopes as they will not crumple like hollow molded machines. The wings have flaps, ailerons, and carbon joiners (tip panels are removable.
The fuselages use carbon and multilayer kevlar where necessary and have a T-tail design. These could easily be made electric and have a lot of room for batteries. Between the gliders there are approx 7 older mini servos, I think they are Futaba 133 servos but would have to check.
Wingspan: 280cm (110in)
Length: 134cm (53 in)
Wing Area: 55dm
Aspect Ratio: 14
Gross weight: 2100-3100g (ballasted)
Wing Loading: 38-56g/dm
Both need repair and a lot of tlc hence the price. For example, one requires repair to a 2x1.5" ding in the centre panel and 1x.5" ding in the tip. Easy repair as there is a foam core and it is not hollow molded so I was going to shape a solid balsa insert and glass it. Various fuselage repairs have also been made to one of the gliders by the previous owner. I was also going to rub down both gliders and give them a new paint job.
I purchased these gliders with the intent of using them as rugged high performance slope machines but work has me strapped for time an dI am flying giant scale aerobatics mainly.
At the end of the day these a great find for someone with time to get them in the air. $550 + shipping gets both gliders! That's only $275/glider. These originally were $1150 each! I prefer money order or bank transfer. Add 3% for paypal.
I can also offer a good deal on 4 Futaba 3501 minis and 4 JR 321 minis pulled from another 1/4 scale glider if the buyer is interested. I paid over $40/ea for the servos and would include all 8 for another $150.
Local pickup is preferred. Serious inquires only please as I have limited time, but am selling as I think someone may enjoy these. I will be more then happy to contact you by phone to discuss the gliders, repairs needed etc so PM me your phone number if you want to. I will also take a LOT of pictures of damage etc for someone who is really interested.
