Race M 3 metre F3F glider.
« on: February 21, 2011, 17:40:56 PM »
Race M 3metre F3F glider. Comes with wing, tail and fuse bags.

It was originally put together by one of UK's top F3F pilots before I owned it, hence the quality of the installation is excellent. The wing auto-mates to the fuselage loom by way of DB9 connectors and the model comes supplied with Multiplex Polo Digi4’s in the fuselage and Hitec 5125mg servos in the wing. The battery pack is a Sanyo Eneloop and is one year old. The model comes supplied with ballast set along with all the necessary spacers.

The model has had a repair to one of the wingtips and a crack to the fuselage boom, but these were professionally remoulded by Tony Fu and hence the repairs are invisible. Detailed pictures of these spots are available upon request.

The model is very clean, and is in top condition. The RaceM is a classic F3F ship which is still highly competitive – in fact the UK Midlands Winter F3F League was won by a RaceM identical to this one this year. It was my first F3F ship and I would recommend it to anyone for either that, or just as a fantastic 3m sport model, as they are vice-free, strong, and are highly effective in both thermic air as well as 50mph plus with full ballast.

Model is supplied complete, just add rx.

This is a really nice glider. Have only flown it a handful of times. Thats one of the reasons i'm selling it. That and I have my eye on another toy!

Hi all. Still have the Race M.
This machine has been sat around in its bags for too long. It needs a new home and to be flown a lot. Really high end glider. Best i've ever owned/flown.

Happy Days

Joe, are you still in the land of the living? :clap:

Here’s a good idea, if you can’t sell it, why not fly it! :D  There’s a Glide-In next weekend. Bring it along to the Big L and give it an airing. You might even find a buyer for it there. I can’t make it myself, I’ll be in the UK,…so there’s an even better reason to going to the glide-in!  :lol:
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

Hi all.
Yes still alive Keith. Oh! didn't realise there was a slope fest next weekend. Better break out the charger. Although, if you are not there Keith….. :P

Would like to get €500 for it.

Open to offers on this. Really like to move it on as it's just sitting in my attic.
