Futura SE (titanium - magnesium - carbon) 9 1/2 lbs RTF (SOLD)
SOLD TO DAN THANKS RUNRYDER!!!!

After 35+ years of flying, I'm selling out. (OMG) I am the original owner of this Curtis Youngblood Futura Special Edition. This machine is SUPER MINT, because it has hardly been used. A Raptor 30 was my workhorse, which I used to like to fly at eye level while doing 3-D. I call the Futura a "Pilot's Dream Machine" because of the amazing 9 1/2 lbs RTF weight, (less fuel) and the fact that much of this machine is metal, with beautiful carbon frames. The light weight gives you AGILITY, a quality you lose by flying a heavier machine. Autos float "like a feather", and all manuvers require less corrections due to the smaller mass of the machine. IT'S A REAL PLEASURE TO FLY...

The machine features an all metal head, titanium feathering spindle and flybar pivot, hollow hardened main shaft, magnesium frame components, magnesium oversized engine heat sink head, almost all screws in the entire machine are titanium, 100% carbon servo pushrods, carbon tail pushrod, custom magnesium Miniature Aircraft style autorotation bearing and gear assembly (better & lighter than Robbe), Miniature Aircraft Pro paddles and main blades, Miniature Aircraft Pro-Flex start system, Miniature Aircract carbon boom supports with machined ends, and carbon tail blades.

Tons of spares:

unbroken-in new OPS engine
five main shafts
four tail shafts
six flybar shafts
two tail booms, one with spare drive shaft installed
100% complete tail transmission ready to go, + carbon blades
plenty of spare titanium screws
magnesium & aluminium frame core components
landing gear & carbon skids
canopy-used
titanium flybar teeter with bearings installed
two tail fins
two sets tail miter gears
appx $200 in spare bearings
three machined boom clamps
four plastic gears, (3 TR, 1 MR)
Miniature Aircraft Pro paddle set
four Hanger 9 "ducted fan" plugs
two silicone tuned pipe couplers
clutch lining
misc small stuff

The OPS engine and Novarossi tuned pipe run PERFECT on inexpensive 0% nitro fuel. I tried 10% nitro once, and the engine did not develope any greater power, plus the different fuel viscosity caused the midrange to "stumble" ever so slightly. DO NOT USE NITRO...The engine was originally broken-in on a test stand with prop attached. The tuned pipe is "muffled" and has NO annoying bark. I want to stress that the 0% nitro, engine and tuned pipe combo run totally NON FINICKY. Use the supplied Hanger 9 plugs. The OPS runs FLAWLESS with these...The pipe locks the engine rpm PERFECTLY, and you will NOT need an electronic governor.

The three new servos included are: Futaba 9402 coreless collective (110oz/in), JR digital 8700G tail rotor($150) JR 3025 throttle. Gyro is a factory modded CSM ICG360. It locks the tail "vise-like" for ANY manuver. The tail is 100% driven when the engine is off, which should satisfy the best of pilot's.

I am including a Sullivan High Torque starter with a custom machined extension, which keeps your hands away from the head and flybar while starting. You WILL need this to make starting a breeze. Main rotor pitch curve info included, to make setup easy. Also, original paperwork with Futura kit included

Asking $800 + shipping
