Ferocious Frankie 1.50 Size Hangar 9 P-51    $800

This will make someone a beautiful warbird they can be proud of! The bare airframe and the retracts alone are well over $1,000.
All total, around $2,000 worth of stuff for the bargain price of $800.

This is the Hangar 9 ARF 1.50 size P-51 Ferocious Frankie. I switched completely over to electric before this one was finished.
I am an experienced builder so no worries on the quality of work already done.

Sorry, I know the ad says "Buyer Pays Shipping" but I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT SHIP THIS PLANE.
Once submitted you cannot go back and fix this error. Local pickup in the greater St. Louis area only.

Most, if not all, of the hard work is done. All of the control surfaces have been hinged.
Flaps are hinged with Robart point hinges. Check the pictures and you will see very little, if any hinge gap.

I can’t stand some of the cheap vacuformed plastic parts that come with many ARFs.
The pre-molded exhaust stacks were really cheap looking. This plane has custom scale exhausts
from an aftermarket kit and look light years better than the crap supplied with the kit.

In my opinion, every plane needs a pilot. But not just any pilot and certainly not those goofy looking,
frozen with a 1,000 yard stare straight ahead things you often see.
This plane has a custom Painted WWII pilot from Aces of Iron.

No cheap retracts for such a nice bird! Again, I threw away the crap mechanical retracts supplied with the kit.
I bought these from Darrel (Sierra Precision) at the Toledo show. If you know anything about retracts,
you know Sierra Precision are the very best quality. Very stout gear struts with oleo dampening action.
Note also that the struts come with very nice collars for mounting the gear doors.

Plane is equipped with an O.S. 2.00 4-stroke engine. This engine is in new condition
and has never seen a drop of fuel. The engine alone was $500!

The flying spinner seen on the nose in the picture is, if I remember correctly, a Dave Brown spinner.
The kit comes with an uncut yellow aluminum spinner and four scale Curtiss Electric cuffed prop blades.
I was going to use the yellow spinner just as a static scale spinner along with the scale prop blades.

There are a few servos mounted but they are mostly 4.8V only and all are analog servos.
I can leave them in or take them out at the buyer’s option.

Everything sold with the original kit is included with the exception of sub-standard items mentioned above.

I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT SHIP THIS PLANE. Local pickup in the greater St. Louis area only.
The only payment methods accepted is Paypal in advance of pickup or cash when picked up.

FMS 1700MM Corsair     $300

I have an FMS 1700MM Corsair for sale. Requires a 6 cell 5000ma lipo. This Corsair is equipped
with scale wingtip navigation lights and wing leading edge lights. I have done a few things that
I think makes the plane look a bit nicer. I can't stand the goofy looking pilots that come in these
ARFs so I have replaced the original with a nice one from Aces of Iron. I also painted the dummy engine and the prop hub.

This plane sells new for $500 so this is your chance to have one at a bargain price.

Hangar 9 P-51       $600

Very nice condition Hangar 9 blue nose P-51. Loads of power and plenty fast.
Not too noticeable in the photos but on a grass field landing the right main gear hit a gopher
hole or something and tore out of the wing. Rather than try to repair the wing I replaced the
wing with a new one so the right wing is lighter color than the rest of the plane since it has seen
 less UV from the sun. No damage to the retract. No damage anywhere else on the plane.
The plane flies with a 6 cell 5000ma lipo for power. Only needs your receiver and battery pack to be ready to fly.

Local pickup only in the St. Louis metro area.

E-Flite Habu 32   $400

I have an E-Flite Habu 32 for sale. Add your receiver and battery and it is ready to go.
You will need a receiver and you will need a 6 cell, 5,000ma lipo battery pack. Plane is in
very good condition as can be seen in the photos. The only "damage" is a small scuffed area
on the bottom of the nose; purely cosmetic. There is a very small area on the bottom of one
of the flaps at the trailing edge where the covering shrank back a small bit
exposing a thin sliver of balsa. covering is tight and not a problem in that area.

Easily more than $1,000 dollars went into this plane!

Sorry but I absolutely cannot ship this plane. Local pickup in the metro St. Louis area only.
Payment must be either PayPal or cash.

This plane is equipped with all the JR servos that are recommended in the

Very Urgently Wanted
A computer literate member to assume the duties of maintaining the Saints Website.
After 20+ enjoyable years of being your webmaster, it is getting harder and harder for me
to maintain the site.  Aging has contributed to the problems and memory has decreased. 
At some time, in the future, I will be unable to continue and without a replacement,
you will not have a web site
I know there are a lot of you that can program and maintaining a website is only
a step away.  I will continue as long as I possibility can, but getting a replacement would
be a great. Please don't wait too long.  It would be a shame to suddenly lose the Website.
This will be the only notice I will give. Don't let it suddenly slip away.

John
