Well, after hearing about the McMinneville R/C swap meet for a few years, I decided to check it out.  Not sure what I was expecting, but it was a nice little show.  My son and I got there about an hour after opening, and already a good amount of stuff had sold.  After wandering around for a couple of hours, I had some nice little early birthday presents to myself.
My first swap meet DSCN3172_zpsbbm5zizu


I got this Spectra electric sailplane for $10.
My first swap meet DSCN3195_zpsqcyquikj


And this Magician C/L for $10 also.  It’s a little rough, but a little work will set it right.  And it’ll be perfect for one of the McCoy 19’s that I got from Ron.

This little single channel plane was $5.  It has a nice Golden Bee on it.  It also still has the single channel escapement inside.  I’ll probably pull the escapement out and sell it, then put in a modern micro system after a recover.

My $1.00 and under control line handles.  The Goldberg handle was 50 cents.  I doubt I’d ever use the aluminum reel handle.  I just got it as a curiosity as it is both the line reel and the flying handle.  I know a lot of people don’t like Sullivan Insta-Just handles, but the two I’ve had have never given me any problems.  The little purple one is an interesting little 1/2A handle.  I’ll have to figure out what to use it on.
My first swap meet DSCN3238_zpsx2nm1an5


And my $5.00 handles.
My first swap meet DSCN3239_zps8t7hszyc


This is the contents of a Tub-O-Cox that I picked up at a table from a Heretic who said he’s giving up both control line AND 1/2A.  There wasn’t anything in the tub that I really needed, but SOMEone had to rescue these things, so I gave the Benedict Arnold $50.00 to set them free.  It had nine complete engines and assorted parts and pieces.  Amazingly enough, five of the six loose glow heads are still good.

I can even get some of my money back with these valuable rebate coupons:
My first swap meet DSCN3202_zpsfk6qeylb


A couple of parts I don’t rightly recognize.  The first is what I assume to be an insert to use an aftermarket glow plug.    The second is a needle valve and reed assembly.  The needle valve is fine thread, and the reed body is what I assume to be some version of Bug assembly, maybe?

My first swap meet DSCN3205_zpssp0gnvkq

It even had the super rare 2 of 3 piece piston.
My first swap meet DSCN3217_zpsntgeb5r3


The best bargains would probably be the new $12 Blade MCX, the $1.00 Kavan tank extender,  the two free .049’s, and the brand new OS LA .46 S for $35.00.

So, it was a good day all around.  My son asked me if I was going back next year.  I’ll give it a maybe. And get there early if I do.

Nice haul Mark!

Can't decide which ones to be the most envious about Smile  I would have been all over them too. The little $5 plane would have been worth it even without the antique radio system and the Golden Bee (and I've been looking for a complete early GB for a few months now here in Finland) and the new OS engine... And that box o' Cox is not bad either.

Congrats, those will keep you busy for a while RC Plane

You guys have got it good. I've never been able to find a single R/C swap meet in my home state here in Aus.

A standard Cox fine needle works in the valve.  I tried two of my fine needles to verify that it's not something odd ball.  If I can't find what it goes to, I have a little quickie side project to try it on.

Yeah, most of the tables had stuff that beat eBay. But the prices for Cox stuff was all over. One guy was selling all his Cox engines for at least $40.00, no matter what model or condition. So no one bought any of them. Some guys were reasonable and their tables were bought out before closing time. Unfortunately, the kits that I might have been interested in were at mail order prices or greater. The few guys with vintage C/L kits wanted collector prices.

I figure the shipping cost of eBay saved was kinda offset by the $15.00 in gas I spent driving. But it was worth the trip. My faith in swap meets is restored. I was afraid it would be like gunshows these days where everything is priced retail or higher. Huh...

Thought that piece looked familiar.

Should be easy enough to make up
a backplate to hold it in.

Gotta love swap meets! I haven't been to one in years and i miss going, but i work on Saturdays...

That purple handle is interesting, could you take a close up of the label on it? I bought one like in the early eighties only red and i think somebody told me it was designed by George Aldrich for combat?

I also spotted a RSM handle, best (imo) handle ever!

I thought it looked like the combat handle my son uses, too. I forgot to ask my son to dig his out to compare. I like how you can adjust the neutral on the fly.
