It is with a heavy heart that I am selling my brand new OpenPPG unit. The reason I am selling is that there are cross country flights that I really want to do that are more than an hour long, and flight time for OpenPPG is 40-50 minutes max (with 8 batteries, depending on wing, weight, weather, flying style, etc.)
As much as I’d like to keep it, I can’t afford two motors.
This unit is in perfect condition. I only flew it 5 times. I bought the prebuilt option so it was built by the OpenPPG team.
I am including 8 batteries, 700 watt charger, Dudek soft links, carabiners, OpenPPG branded Dudek Powerseat Comfort harness, adapters to connect 8 batteries, and a case for the cage pieces for easy transport.
Improvements I made:
Added a nylon rod and blue sheath to the controller wire to make it stronger and less likely to slip past the net and into the props.
Added eyelets to the sides to more effectively hook the netting.
It’s everything you need to fly immediately other than the glider.
It cost me:
OpenPPG unit with prebuilt option: $3600
OpenPPG branded Dudek Powerseat Comfort harness: $445
8 batteries: $2000 (after shipping)
700 watt charger: $250
Case for cage pieces: $50
Dudek soft links: $25
Adapters for 8 batteries: Time and effort
Total cost I paid: $6,415
I am selling this complete system for $5500 (firm) plus shipping. I am located in Miami.
