Wanted- Pattern model for Nats

I am looking at options for a a new Pattern ship for the nats. I can't afford new but would like to know if anyone has a second hand one they could be tempted to part with.

Re: Wanted- Pattern model for Nats

That really is an awesome plane there mate!! It is with much regret that I will have to decline that offer as it is a bit out of my price range Cheers though. Hope the sale goes well

A bit more info for people about what I am after; I'm only in need of the airframe as I have all the gear i need for it, and also have a Nue Motor and 10cell lithium on the way for it So it is going to be electric.

I can only really spend $700NZD maximum and am not prepared to go past that.

I would settle for just a fuselage as I have some wings and a a couple of sets of tailplanes here (don't ask lol ) . I would also settle for an airframe that needed a bit of TLC to get up to flying condition. I also have two sets of carbon U/C, 2 wing tubes, a Matrix rear end lol and other bits and bobs. So if it means I can get something cheaper by the seller not including them I wouldn't complain

I was planning to get a new Matrix fuse of Ewan Galloway, but I not sure if he'll have time to get this done for me or not. Hard to get hold of him too (been trying for 2 months!!)

I would also prefer a modern(ish) design like the Matrix etc... As I have flown older designs and they just don't do it for me (I'm picky i know lol )

I am getting a little Dejavu reading this thread, I seem to recall a young man from CHCH looking for a new pattern plane about this time last year for the nats?.

Re: Wanted- Pattern model for Nats

Haha it's sad ae

Just need to show some restraint and discipline in the way I go about things and also in the way I fly. This way things may last me a bit longer

Oh well being an engineer now might help in this too, doing things properly and such, having an eye for wrong threads into wrong clevices etc

Re: Wanted- Pattern model for Nats

hey Alex, Jeremy from CMAC here,

i have just got my 2nd EF Extra (RIP the first)
i was wondering if there are mods you would recomend over stock,
i will just be running the stock, Torque motor and airboss ESC, HS65's all round (they all apear to have survived the wreck).
i was running my last one with Hyperion 3s 2500's, but i might try one of those batteries that you were using. what are they and how much? did you say your mate imports them?

catch you out at cmac in a week for the imac/pattern?

I can't really think of any mods other than carbon capping the elevator joiner.

Yup I can hook you up with some 2000mah lipos
