"doodlebug Airplane", Life-size Educational Toy Plane W/ Pedal Power Propeller:
"Jake's Doodlebug", is a one-of-a-kind pedal powered propeller airplane for (5-12) year old children to have a fun learning experience, and get exercise at the same time. By using alternative foot pedal energy the children can turn a plane propeller and use their imaginations to pretend they are flying. As they pedal, there is a fun clicking/piston noise built into the motion. The sound adds to the fun of pretending it is a real engine. It will also seat two comfortably in the front cockpit and two children in the back bench seat. An acrylic case attaches to keep the propeller safely enclosed. It was designed to withstand outdoor elements, but being wood and metal it will naturally hold up better over time indoors ... which is recommended. However, if it is for outdoors, a custom cover is provided. The plane took over 18 months to build. It is built with quality and kids in mind. The asking price is $28,000, Or Best Offer. I am open to cash on pick up, checks that clear or using Pay Pal. A direct wire transfer is preferred. A list of attributes of "Jake's Doodlebug" plane:
• The design is modeled after a single low wing airplane, conceptually similar to James McDonnell 's 1929 "Doodlebug" monoplane.
• The plane is hand made out of wood and medal.
• There are two seats and two steering wheels in the front. In addition, there is a bench seat in the rear for two more children.
• The cockpit has important gages on the dashboard.
• The pedal propeller offers a fun way to get exercise and learn about alternative forms of energy. The kids rotate the foot pegs just like a bike which turns the propeller.
• The dimensions of the plane are 5.5' tall x 17' wing width x 13' fuselage length. The wings are removable to help transport.
• The inside pedal mechanism is protected through an acrylic box. A special acrylic circle is included to provide protection from the rotating propeller.
• The plane is a playful learning experience about aerodynamics especially for children from ages 5-12. The wings have a curved upper surface and flat underside area reflecting the actual aerodynamics.
• Plus, 1-2 switches are being added to turn on and off lights, etc., from a battery stowed away inside the plane safely.* In the shipping info.you will find it is listed as "Local Pick Up". I have a few suggestions. There are many transportation companies to use. However, I have had good service using North American Van Lines (specialized transportation) out of Ft. Wayne, IN. Their prices are based on distance and weight , plus any special services needed. I believe the best way to transport the plane's fuselage is inside a simi-trailer. A large U-Haul trailer could work as well, but not recommended for long distances.
