Afternoon all.

I've decided to have a bit of a clearout to generate some additional funds to help buy this new house we are going for at the moment. I'd rather not sell these to randoms, so keeping them in the club would be nice if possible (I may still get a chance to fly them again then!).

First up is my Blaster 2 - electric. This is a Standard Blaster 2 DLG, that has a different nose to accept a small outrunner motor, and the fin at the back is slightly different too (smaller than the DLG version). The wing is identical though, and even has the Discus Launch blades on the tips. The model has been built using SD100 servos (2 in the tail for Elevator and Rudder) and two in the wings for the Ailerons (Flapperons). There is also a Spektrum AR7000 receiver and satellite installed in the wing. The wing attaches to the fuselage with four screws, and a plug in multiconnector (all bonded in place to ease assembly). There is then a 25A Castle Creations ESC in the nose which powers a Hyperion Brushless outrunner. There is plenty of room in the nose for a big Lipo pack, but I have been flying it on a small 2s, 800mAh Lipo, and 7*4 aeronaut folding prop blades to give a nice gentle climbout, but the minimum wingloading for excellent thermal performance. It is pulling around 10amps (80 watts or so). Upping the pack to a 3s pack will result in more power, at the expense of duration (and weight). The colourscheme is Orange with the wing lower surfaces being black. The model is in almost perfect condtion, but is around 2 years old. I don't fly it too often, hence the really good condition! The link to the Hyperflight page for this model is here: http://www.hyperflight.co.uk/products.asp?code=BLASTER-2E&name=blaster-2e-for-outrunners I'm after £225 for this model, which is a bit of a bargain, considering there is over £400 worth of parts gone into it. The model is completely ready to fly, but you will need a Spektrum TX (ideally a 7 channel or more one).


Next up is my Gasser TREX 700. This is a standard Trex700 LE kit (the black one) converted to gasser operation using the Helibug conversion kit. This involved replacing both side frames, the engine mounting plate, the lower plate and adding more side plate support braces It uses the original Trex 700 tank (but with petrol safe tygon tubing for all the plumbing). The engine fitted is a CY 29cc pull start engine (zenoah clone) with chromed covers. The clutch is the standard Trex700 item, and the conversion retains the electric start hex at the top. The gearing is the tough Mod1 type, with the ratio altered to suit the torque of the 29cc engine. The Helicopter is fitted with Align DS610 servos on the cyclic and Throttle, an Align GP750 gyro, and Align DS560 tail servo. The servos are all controlled from a Spektrum AR7100r receiver (with rev limit feature, although the sensor is not installed at present, it will be included in the sale). The receiver has a built in "soft switch" to provide a failsafe switch action. The receiver is powered by a 2s A123 receiver pack. The elevator cyclic servo has the upgraded align metal mount to ensure it does not overheat during hard flying. The 700 currently has the stock 690D carbon blades installed. The vertical and horizontal fins have been upgraded to flo-orange ones to aid visibility at distance.

The helicopter is obviously a little heavier than the standard Trex700 nitro, but this aids stability greatly. The 29cc engine provides plenty of power indeed for some quite aggressive manoeuvres. You've all seen me fly helicopters, and know that all this has done so far is gentle hovering, and a few sharp climbs. The best bit though, is the running costs (or lack of!). The 600ml tank will cost about £1 to fill, and give approx 15-25 minutes run time depending on how you fly. For hovering and basic circuits, I have been getting 20 minute flights with a reserve left in the tank of about 250ml. There is also very little mess, due to the lower oil content of the fuel (33:1 - 50:1 fuel/oil ratio).

This cost over £1400 to put together, so I'm after as close to 4 figures (£1000) as I can get for this. I would prefer to keep it, than let it go for much less.

I'm uploading some photos now, so will add them in a moment....

I've also got a Spektrum AR12000. 12 channels, 3 satellite receivers of DSM2 goodness. It has never been used, and came with the module that I have in my Tx. £170 from Als, so it's yours for £125.
