This pains me a bit, but I have no place to keep them nor do I have a place to launch.
Selling entire collection. Will not part and will not ship. (hazmat issues) So local pickup.

I current live in the 43512 zip. I will be willing to drive 100 miles to meet up.
Thinking $600?

Nice stuff. What is the orange fiberglass kit?
 
I know you said you didn't want to part, but is there any chance you'd sell the polecat spike separately? I've been looking for one for a long time... Or whoever ends up buying the lot, would you consider?
 
I'm interested in the black and the far right if you decide to split. I have a UPS business account

Prefer not to separate at this time. If I do, i will contact the people that asked first on the rockets they inquired about.
 
I can understand storage issues, but I don't understand the "no place to fly." Going by your zip code, there are 9 NAR sections listed on the NAR website, and 2 Tripoli Prefectures.
Good luck on the sale though.
 
I am in Toledo up the "Trail" from 43512. There is no place to fly locally.
I have to Drive an hour to MI to fly. Cleveland is a bit far, but I have driven there in the past.
Spring Field Ohio is even farther.

All those clubs listed for Ohio are farther down south, or east.

The clubs listed for Michigan , only JMRC is really viable and less than 2 hours drive. { and is who I fly with JMRC} Many of those sections listed fly with other club's fields.

And there is no Fort Wayne Indiana club anymore that would be an hours drive from 43512.

So it is relative about "A place to fly", especially if you have health issues that preclude long drives like I now have.
 
I would love to have a place to fly that was only 1hr drive away... 2 hrs, 2.5hrs, 5+ hrs, 8hrs, 9hrs... without traffic...

I am from the Fort Wayne area, technically.
The club there isn’t too inviting, unless you’re already knew someone in the club. Tried to get myself involved and my son. This is from my experience.
Besides, I have contacted the head guy and it was ignored.
