Onto the goodies! Raffle Prizes for the December Meeting and Christmas Party!
We’ve got a great selection of items for this year’s raffle.
For starters: 2 ARF Kits
· Phoenix Model Sonic Mk2 High-Wing .25-.32 GP/EP ARF 52 NIB Kit.
· SIG 4-Star 54 .40-.46 GP/EP ARF Yellow 54 NIB Kit
· NIB XK K110 Blast 6CH Brushless 3D6G System RC Helicopter RTF:
This is an excellent micro sized heli for a beginner. Not only is it easy to fly when in the 6G mode but it’s very durable and can hold up quite well in a crash (Don’t ask me how I know). It comes with some additional spares that aren’t pictured along with some extra batteries. The transmit- ter is Futaba FASST compatible and will work with helicopters and planes.
· Next up we have an RTF P51 with a 50” wingspan w/flaps that was donated to the club and prepared by Jim Knox. It has an almost new AXI motor that runs on a 4S battery (included) and a 65 amp ESC. It comes with an older but useable Futaba 72MHz transmitter. It’s been test flown by the legendary RC pilot Greg Watson and deemed airworthy. I would say this is not something for a beginner.
· A home built field box donated by me. It comes with a 12 volt starter and a 12 volt gel battery as well as a unopened gallon of 30% Heli fuel.
· A $25 gift card form Hog Heaven.
· Jim Knox has donated this RC boat. (Thanks Jim)
· Pulse 3S 2200mah 25C Battery (NIB)
