SOLD Sweet Vee ready-to-fly with Nelson engine SOLD

Postby KRProton » Mon Jun 05, 2017 5:28 pm

It just about kills me to offer my Sweet Vee for sale because I absolutely love everything about the airplane, but in finding my way through this Q40 endeavor I would like to narrow my focus to a single design, so I need to sell this one to fund my next.

I built this Sweet Vee last fall and flew it two times in February. I brought it to the Q40 Classic in Phoenix this year as a backup, but it never even made it out of the hotel room. I took it out of the closet for the race last weekend in Cincinnati and I put three or four trim flights on it, plus two heat races, so it has a total of about eight flights.

The Nelson I purchased from Lonnie Finch that he was selling on behalf of someone else for an estate sale. The engine seems to run stronger than my new Nelson I purchased last year. The base/”dry” setup is .789” stroke and .189” TDC. Presently has .003” sleeve shim and .008" + .005” head shim. So setup is .192 / .020 if my math is correct. Most of the time in Cincinnati I launched the plane at about 24,500rpm. The plug in the image is as removed from the engine a few minutes ago after all the runs in Cinci.

As can be seen in the images, the plane has nary a scratch, has never been crashed or even landed rough and is in brand new condition. It C.G.s at about 2-5/16” with a little led shot inside the tail. Weight is 4.18 lbs. ready to fly. The checkers are painted and the numbers and windscreen are vinyl. The rest of the images speak for themselves.

Selling as-is, completely ready-to-fly with servos, 2S Life battery, and receiver exactly as you see it in the images. (More images in following posts...)

$1,200

You can inquire here, PM me separately, or email directly to tim.lampe@hotmail.com

Will ship at buyer’s expense.

I'll be bringing this Sweet Vee for sale with me to the Nat's for display and sale there if anybody want's to have a look-see. Then maybe I'll move on the price a little.

And of course, no shipping fee if you take it home with you! :mrgreen:
