Take a look! An old Century Apache Fuse on Ebay with Mechanic and engine (80) for sale. It look to be in fairly good condition. Sitting at $699, with no bids and 5 days to go. He wants a hefty amount to ship it.

it sounds like he's not into the hobby, but is looking to get a quick buck!
the heli it self is a xcell 60st with the bent frame version. He's asking way too much. Good Luck seller!

Westbach,
I know what you mean and I think everyone else sees the same too. For one thing there's no way the original owner had those mechanics in that fuse flying it, I don't see a cable drive in the fuse (It definitely will not fit with the boom on) and no muffler set up for the fuse. With a 80 size engine it would be no problem flying that fuse (I know I picked up one on ebay myself awhile back) that how I also know they're not in the hobby...take care!

DJ Hawaii,

Once you build up a fuse to fit your mech, I don't think you would want to break it down and set up as a pod and boom. too much work involved. besides if the previous owner had it in the fuse, where is the wire drive like you pointed out? and the scale muffler? this guy is a joke! I like how he mentions in his add, lots of parts and small linkages!?! maybe someone should tell him how old the mechanics are! aloha!

the fuse doesn't look too bad. i think it'll clean up well.... the price is a bit much.

Taxed?

Oh, I like how you will get charged for state sales tax if you are a local pick-up!

I don't know what you guys are talking about ... The Fuse looks good in the pictures and the TailDrive is really not that big of a deal ... I install my Flex Drive after the tailboom is on. For $700 someone is going to get a great deall ... You may want to huck the Radio and update a few things but, for whats there it sounds like a great deal plus you won't have to invest a couple hundred hours building.

Dr. Tim,
You are absolutely correct, it is a great buy for that amount but he also wants $250 to ship it , where I paid $110 to ship mine from NYC to Hawaii. Other wise I would probaly go for it myself, I tried emailing him a couple of times to question that shipping amount with no response..... take care (love your heli work)
