52" Marston Pterodactyl!

Looking for a cool and different balsa build? Here it is! The 52" Marston Pterodactyl. You'll likely have the only one at the field. Like everything else I buy I bought this on a whim but had every intention of building it someday but now it's in the "MAKE SOME ROOM" pile. I've gotta start letting go of some kits and this is the first on the block.

This is NOT a bARF! You have to build it. The picture of the finished bird was shamelessly lifted from the Marston website. You'll get the laser cut kit and accessories seen in the picture below it.

The particulars:

52" Pterodactyl kit. LINK The wood is still wrapped as shipped from Marston. Includes all carbon fiber spars.
(2) N.I.B. Hacker a20-26M brushless motors
(2) N.I.B. Hacker X-12 ESC's
(1) N.I.B. Hacker ESC USB programmer
(2) N.I.B. APC 9x4.7SF props
(2) N.I.B. Hitec HS-45HB servos
(2) N.I.B. Hitec HS-65HB servos
(1) N.I.B. Turnigy navigation light kit. (Ya gotta at least have the eyes lit up!) (this is the ONLY cheapo Hobby King crap in the package!)

Price it all out and it's over $400.00. Grab it for $250.00 + shipping before I come to my senses and keep it.

To help you determine what it will cost to ship it the box is 48"x6"x6" and weighs 5 pounds. I'm in Arizona zip 85206. If you insist on double boxing figure the extra cost of 7 pounds shipping weight. I'd have to piece an outer box together. Decide how much insurance you want and add that to the total. I'll verify before shipping. I do accept PayPal and I'll eat the fees.

Wow - that's a very unique looking 'bird' there - how did you find this manufacturer? I've never run across them before...

Marston has been around for a while. As is typical for the hobby lately if it was a bARF it would be a huge seller and more well known. Because you have to build it the instant gratification cell phone/tablet/Xbox/PlayStation kids are scared off and Marston gets little exposure. My only reason for not building it is room. I'm 100% out of it!

It would look even cooler in your collection.:) My kids and grand kids would like to come for a visit but the "guest" room is full of airplanes and kits. Help me make some room......
