In RC ITEMS FOR SALE
Another of the Indian River specials. Airplane has never been flown and engine has never been run. I had to completely rework the plane, simple things like the fuel tank was installed upside down. Had to tear down the engine to free it up, now turns over as new. It is a O.S. Special Edition .61 SF, notice the gold anodized head. All Hitec servos through out. Pictures show a receiver installed, and I will fly the bird if no buyer is found. Will need battery and receiver. Am Asking $250. 616-455-3450 carrikerhh@gmail.com

Another of the Indian River specials. The original Dallaires were designed and flown in the 30's with ignition engines and were free flight. This bird has a 104" wingspan, Cheetah motor, ESC and separate 5A BEC. It is only a 3 channel and has two Futaba servos for the elevator and rudder. Covering is a fabric and it just needs a 4-6S battery and receiver. This is one casual, easy flyer. Am Asking $175. 616-455-3450 carrikerhh@gmail.com

This is one of the planes I acquired at last summers estate sale at Indian River. It was an unfinished PNP with various and assorted hardware missing and some minor paint issues. I completed the assembly, touched up the paint, checked out the control surfaces, motors, and gear. Everything should be good to go with the addition of a 4S battery and receiver. Am asking $150 616-455-3450 carrikerhh@gmail.com .

This is one of the planes I acquired at last summers estate sale at Indian River. Like all of the planes there, it was poorly assembled and very neglected. I spent a significant amount of time repairing/refurbishing including a complete teardown and refurbish of the K&B Twister .60 engine. Everything should be good to go with the addition of a flight battery and receiver. Am asking $200. 616-455-3450 carrikerhh@gmail.com

Built 2 oldies but goodies this winter. My first RC plane was a Falcon Jr. with a Babe Bee .049, covered in silk and dope. This was 1966! My dad was a Ham operator so he decided to build the transmitter on 6 meters and we purchased a Citizenship receiver to activate the rubber powered escapement, probably a Bonner. The transmitter had tubes and ran off an inverter, all to send a simple tone when one button was pushed. Well, the Tx never worked well and max range ended up being about 50 yards. So I ended up flying it free flight one spring day over a farmers plowed field. Plane flew great. Started up in a nice circle and ran for about 3 minutes. Trouble started when after the engine quit, it kept climbing higher. Got into a thermal and that was the last I saw of it until the next fall when the farmer called to tell me it had be found over a mile away. Good thing I had a phone number on it. So, couldn't locate a Falcon Jr. to build but saw the 56 on Ebay and was fortunate enough it didn't get to expensive. Hope this one doesn't fly away! My first successful RC was a Sig Kadet I built in 1973 while in the Navy in Puerto Rico. I purchased and built a Heathkit 3 channel for this Kadet. After leaving the Navy and when I had a few extra $$ I built a Midwest Strikemaster as my first 4 channel plane. I bought a Cox/Sanwa 6 channel radio for it, and if memory serves me, it cost about $300, a lot for 1977. But it was a great flyer, even competed in my first pattern contest with it. So when I saw this kit for sale on RC Groups, I broke down and bought it. So this winter is my winter of nostalgia builds. I located a picture of my first Strikemaster and a handsome young man to go with so have posted that as well as the 2019 builds.
