  • For Sale: LET 1/3 Scale Ventus with 5m and 6m tips

    Some background on the full scale Ventus 2c. This sailplane is produced by Schempp-Hirth of Germany. They have a long history of producing a wide range of sailplanes. The Ventus 2c is one of many variants of the Ventus sailplane series. The 2c is able to fly with a span of 15m or 18m pending on the tips that are used. There is quite a bit of information available and the Schempp-Hirth site can be found here: http://www.schempp-hirth.com/

    Originally built in July/August 2013.

    Flies beautifully....it will thermal really well and also is fun to put through a range of aerobatics suitable for sailplanes. Has a great speed range and excellent take-off and landing characteristics.

    The sailplane is currently balanced on the CG based on having an Axel pilot seated in the cockpit and 3 Duralite 5200mAh batteries. It will need a pilot or weight in the seat area of approximately 9 oz or 255g to balance on the recommended CG when using the included Duralite batteries.

    Can be delivered to Sky High, Black Dirt, possibly Cumberland (pending on my potential transporter options). Otherwise local pick-up or delivery is preferred.

    Many thanks for looking !

    $4,750 (w/o receiver) - Pricing is negotiable within reason

    Contact me for details on delivery options.

    I do have a NIB Spektrum AR20310T 20 channel receiver that can go with the Ventus 2c, this would make the sailplane basically a bind and fly for anyone using Spectrum radio equipment. This can work with a DX18 or DX20.

    Pricing can be determined for anyone interested in purchasing this as a package (sailplane as listed and the receiver). I will also change the connectors on the PowerBox BaseLog to EC3 for dual power connection to the receiver.
