Current circumstances dictate I must reduce my fleet and reluctantly my iconic vintage R6-B powered glider is offered here for sale.
Well-known in vintage circles, the R6-B is an attractive 60" span powered glider designed back in 1953. I built mine shown here to comply with the 'model-of-the-meet' specification for the Oily Hand Cowra rally in 2019 - it was a winner there. The model has had very little flying since then is still in very good little used condition.
The model is 60" span, comprises regular built-up balsa and plywood construction, all film covered. Engine is a low-time PAW 1.49 diesel in pusher configuration with muffler and Enya r/c carb. Original model used early r/c escapement rudder only control. Mine uses current modern r/c gear with rudder, elevator, and throttle control.. Unlike the original, I went to some trouble to internally hide the rudder and elevator control runs.
Price for this model as-is and ready to go excluding Rx is $270. I am reluctant to part with this engine (conversion to electric power would not be difficult) and I will offer the airframe with servos, NMIH battery etc but excluding the engine and throttle servo etc for $150.
I`m prepared to deliver this with no delivery charge within a radius of approximately 100 kms from my home in Hervey Bay at a time to suit me, otherwise buyer may collect or pay actual freight cost.
This is just one of approx 20 various vintage models I will offer for sale in due course. Feel free to contact me via phone or email to check out future offerings.
