Just spotted this on the GBRCAA Forum. A bit new to be a classic but still a classic nonetheless

Loaded Dice

Looks good, what would a 'sensible' offer be for it? ?70?

No idea what its worth, but Holmes Chapel is only 8 miles from my house and I will happily collect & store and if required, complete, fly and crash it for you as well.

Now, that is a generous offer Martyn. Especially the crashing bit

I am tempted but have so many unfinished, unstarted and unrepaired airframes at the moment that I don't dare buy another.
It's a sickness! smiley

I built a Loaded Dice from scratch some years back and it flew very well until I wrote it off. Sadly I don't have room in my squadron for it.

The LD was a great model. I know the seller for years and has flown in aerobatic comps. Infact bought some servos off him today, as I live in the same area, about 10 mins away.

If anyone wants the model, I can pick it up and take to a swapmeet/ Weston Park in the dark, for example, as long as I can give him the funds first.

Just noticed this; there's over £150 worth of materials in that model! However, the rules for UKCAA require nothing post 1996 (2 metre). Good rule as it constrains costs.

A bargain at £150 & I do believe it's flight capability is 'adequate'.........wink

& with retracts Bob! At 6' long it's the IIs, most effective of the 60 size, but best powered by the Webra 80 or similar.

Hi Terry that one can also be bought as rtf with YS 110 its been knocking around on different sites for a while now,the canopy doesn't look right to me !

Correct Hangar 9, the canopy is not as original. But attaching the canopy well is not an easy task for most. I suspect the cowl is not fitted either, probably due to the FS110 installation. Hope the servos are at the back as that motor will encourage a nose heavy situation.

However, all that for £80...............surprise

It certainly sounds like a bargain for someone, a glass/paint finished classic for half the price of any ARTF.

So, it's not £80 all in Hangar 9.....? I've only noticed the one price.

No, he does state no motor, no servos. But then the ARTF Curare was anywhere between £180 and £330 and that didn't have retracts, servos or an engine so by that standard it's not bad for the finished airframe.

Spring air retracts 'were' (1980's) around £100. Still got a set or two, new, awaiting a model appropriate..wink
