Pre madcow...
Something you have gathering dust....

Sure... a long shot... both worth posting since my posting history shows I put RW kits to work!

Please, BARGAINs only.... yes I know that is a long shot... maybe you just want to see it in the hands of a builder who'll fly it.

I bet you that there are a lot of them out there. The market has been flooded with stupidly cheap kits over the past few years and I am sure there are piles of them in a lot of HPR rocketeer's basements/attics/storage units/dining room tables/wherever they will fit.

Alls' I am saying is... that RW kit gathering dust???
Turn it into cash for motors for whatever you ARE flying. ;)
Maybe you bought it on a whim? (Or so I've heard... :) )
Now it's buried someplace gathering dust. Too small... too big... etc...

Best...

Shoot, count me in too for what ever is left over. Was just thinking about posting something like this. Good idea.

Please define cheap, and a little more specific in what you are looking for might be useful.

You do know that "pre Madcow" is fairly meaningless, as the same guys been making Madcow and RW kits the whole time ;)

People that dont know history are doomed to repeat it. The same person is making all the components.

True, thought the actual components were never the issue. IT was just getting them...and since Madcow only sells what they have in stock.... This setup works better I think.

anyways, back to the search. I'd kick in a go devil, but recently sold it.

The difference is that Mike Stoop of Madcow is a standup gentleman, never going to go unresponsive, and not going to take your money on a Peruvian mountain expedition without shipping your products.

I hear ya, but I will play devils advocate and say I have never had an issue. Also, got my stuff in a reasonable amount of time.

I think the point of this thread is being missed.....

"looking for RW kits you have laying around that you could sell (regardless if MC or RW sold it originaly) to buyers who would like to buy up kits that are not being used for whatever reason"

Thanks... At least there are a few hopeful's in this crowd! :wink: people here... so many are so nice... then there are some that just have to be 'strange'.
I don't WANT a new or I'd BUY a new one...

What part of Something you have gathering dust.... was unclear... I implied NOTHING about MadCow.
Just that this is the sort of thing you'd have from LONG AGO... long ago like way before MadCow.

:facepalm:

And I define CHEAP as you tell me the price and I decide if its CHEAP. :)
Never mind... several people understood...

BTW: I already made a few deals. So some people 'get it'.
:facepalm:

Anyone else who 'gets' it. Send my a PM with your CHEAP price. :)

Whad 'ya get? I don't think there's anything wrong asking if anyone wants to part with a particular kit type that's been laying around and they lost interest in. Kurt

Nice go devil and a 3 inch osprey. Both people 'understood'.
Couple of other bites but not bargains.
I was hoping for kits buried in a build pile several years old. You know. Motor money sitting on the floor unbuilt ;)
As you said. But two rockets is good...

Nope... still happy to find more. I like the Paintless aspect. All I do is make my own custom vinyl. And they fly great. I have a F38, F54, F98, Sublime, and Broken Arrow. Honest flying designs that in the day sold for a great price. :)

Now I have the Go Devil and the Osprey to build. Both from 'standup' sellers.
