I am about to look at a Ripmax Xcaliber offered for sale on BMFA it is located in Carlisle Cumbria which is a four hour journey for me.

The spec is with servos, tank, Recommended u/c, lights powerbox switch etc. i.e.complete except turbine and receiver.

I have seen them but know little about them other than the articles by Graham Ashby in arseyenemy and the subsequent feature booklet.

        Was there a mark two version if so what is different?

        What weaknesses do they have if any

        What would be a fair price to offer if it looks good

As always thanks for any help you can give

Basic Research is what I do - when I don't know what I'm doing!.



I actually have an Xcalibur for sale and it's advertised on the Jet Modellers Associaton forum. It's ready to fly, minus rx, but including a Jet Central Falcon turbine. It also comes with wing bags £1500. I'm based in coventry, so possibly more local for you to
