JonRocket had a sale going on and I ordered the Freestyle, Landviper, Serin and D powered Liberity.
Also the 13mm ASP D Region Tomahawk and Sandia Sandhawk. Already have the ISQY Tomahawk.
Couple I was interested in were already sold out, but there are other suppliers.
I have to dig through the file cabinet and find an old Custom Catalog to see which one's I'm interested in.
I know the Matra, Bullet and Serval for sure.
So if anyone has those that would be willing to part with for a reasonable price I would appreciate it.
These will get built and flown, these are not for collecting.
Unless I can get more than 1.

The Matra is an odd bird, and I think it triggered my latent OCD. It has both three and four fin alignments on the same bird, and nothing I did could make me build it like that. I think I went with three up and three down. I lost it at NARAM in 2013. Someone found it later and was holding it for me, but I never made a connection after the event.

I am not looking to add to my collection, but to build and fly them. Although if I can find more of one of something and the price is reasonable I would buy them for the collections I'm trying to rebuild to leave to my 2 son's. I may even do build threads since I'll be able to afford batteries for the camera again.
Also, Older Quest Kits like the presidential plane and lead ship and fighters.
I can't remember the exact names until I look them up, but you'al probably know which one's I mean.
Feel free to send me a message here, or an Email.
Thank You Kindly in advance for any help, besides Ebay.
I constantly search there, and I've lost out on many due to lacking funds at the time.
I have a back due disability coming the first of November, so funds won't be an issue.
At least for a short period of time.....


I'm back home from SC now. I've gone through my stuff and this is the ONLY out of production Custom kit I'll part with. Are you interested?

I guess it will all depend on how much you want for it?
I tried several times to get that one on Ebay several years back, but it ended up going for more than I wanted to pay. Because I'm going to build and fly it.
I have a few $$ right now, so I hope you see this before I spend it.
Thank You Very Kindly for taking the effort to help me out!

I have two Satellite Drones, not because I'm a Satellite Drone fan, but because I wasn't paying attention when I built the first one and glues the fins on upside down. (So much for building and watching a ball game.) I still fly it, but haven't done the paint and decals on it.
