Default Great Planes 54" Shoestring ARF GP/EP NIB

I have a new Great Planes 54" Shoestring ARF. It's new in box. I won it at a local club raffle and don't have the time or money to build it out.

Local pick up would be nice (los angeles area), but I will ship if someone is interested. Asking $0 plus shipping, but willing to talk price.

This does not include the motor mount required to run this as electric as the ARF kit does not include it. This plane can be setup as either gas powered or electric powered.

That's a sweet deal. I just finished mine and it's waiting for maiden. Tower wants $185 plus shipping for it. Good luck with your sale.

crap... I'm interested, I wonder what shipping would be to zip 23693?

I just checked and I've only got 3 of the 1/4 scale models, and one kit, of this plane. I really need one more...

For your zone, UPS shows $19. If you can find a cheaper quote I'll go for it. This plane is pretty awesome.

hmmm, very tempting. I fly the bigger one and yeah, it is an awesome plane. I really don't need it but I want it. Let me study on it a bit, if you get another offer by all means go for it. Thanks

The videos I've seen of that thing are awesome. It's super fast. Plus you can either go EP or GP, whatever is your fancy.

You can make 'em much faster on Electric.

I've got one in both versions. The Glow has a Supre tigre .90 in it, squeezed in pretty tight considering it's a .60 sized plane.

The fastest I have been able to get the glow version is around 85mph. My electric version has been clocked at 123mph!

I'd like to see what I can do with this smaller one.

I know Tom! But I gotta have some money to get to SEFF on... I just had to spend $200 on trailer tires and another $100 to fix the fridge.

Otherwise he'd already have some money in hand!

What's $130 between friends right? That's a few tanks of gas here in CA. The 54" size is awesome.

I have another offer at $130. It's going to be gone pretty soon. Now is your chance.

You wouldn't by chance need any glow or gas engines would you?

Praise and glow engines is an oxymoron.
