Walston Type Radios

From: Allen Ulm
ROGER….Walston type trackers are available thru Merlin Systems located in
Idaho.  They are very well made, and can be made your frequency. As a plus,
they are better made than Walstons, and cheper….Allen Ulm.

“Almost Perfect Rubber for sale ”

Since starting flying F1B in 2005, I’ve accumulated many FAI factory rubber boxes over the time. Some of the vintages are excellent and are used for contest flying and flyoffs. The rest is good rubber that I doubt if I will ever use. They also occupy storage space. All are in factory boxes, some broken into segments. (Segments have factory markings at both ends and are made from a single mixing.) The rubber has been stored in cool conditions.

The stock consists of June ’06 (3/32), June ’09 (1/8), a small amount of April ’12 (1/8) considered fragile, June ’13 (3/32) and July ‘15 (1/8).

A fair price will be $10 per pound for any generic rubber (3/32 and 1/8”) with a minimum order of 5 pounds. $13 for a specific vintage or a smaller quantity. Shipping and any other expenses will be covered by the buyer.
