  • FOR SALE: AMR 50 Tow Plane w/ DA85 very good condition, receiver ready

    FOR SALE: My reliable AMR 50 tug with DA85 power $1800. Now $1600 Happy to answer questions!

    DA85 motor, low hours and thoroughly checked out last winter at the DA shop in Arizona. KS front dump canister makes for quiet operation. Mejlik carbon prop. REVOC custom orange wing bags made for this model.
    • Span 104"
    • 2-piece wing
    • Wing area 2080 sq in.
    • Heavy duty custom wings bags from Revoc
    • Fuse length 80"
    • Tail unit is removable w 4 hex bolts
    • Heavy duty main landing gear with Ohio Superstar MaxiLeaf tail wheel that turns on a dime.
    The size and generous wing area combine to make this ship tow much better/stronger than the Pilatus Porters that have had DA85 motors (and those did great).

    Hitec and JR high-torque metal gear servos throughout. Electronic kill.

    Just a fantastic tow plane. Can and regularly has towed 6 meter glass ships (a 6.6 meter Arcus if Len is coaching). Consistently lands like a pussycat. Just needs your receiver and batteries. Installed JR receiver DSMx, ignition pack, and/or flight batteries can be included for a very modest addition.

    $1800. Now $1600 Can be delivered to any of our regional aerotow events or meet-up in the CT/NY/NJ tristate.

    Thanks for looking.

    I saw this plane tow at the Salem event in May and it is a beast...it can get the job done!

    This is a great price for a heavy hauling tow plane. I had several Porters with DA-85's on them and towed a 50% Bill Hemple KA-6 with them! The DA-85 is a very powerful engine, don't underestimate its ability.

    You will spend a whole lot more to get any other plane with equal towing ability.

      The AMR did duty yesterday at the annual Salem Turkey Tow. Hauled up the big 6 meter DG-800s like a champ. It proved again it will be a great club or personal tow plane.

        At $1800, I can't understand why someone hasn't stolen this from you yet!

        Thanks, Jim. You know all too well the parts costs, hours and personal investment it takes to get a tow plane in the air. The laser-cut kit is now $599.99 from AMR, the DA motor $795 plus several hundred dollars of headers, cans, servos, plumbing, covering, carbon prop, etc. Then all the assembly. Most of all, in this case, it's a plane that needs to be in service. So, with all that said, I'm knocking another $200 off the price.
