Raptor 60 V2 sale terminated

Due to lack of interest (no bids) and similar items listed on ebay I ended the auction early. I'll put my foot in it before I'll give it away. This Raptor V2 70 is really nice and new. I'm really supprised it didn't get bids after 3 days. Maybe if I waited until some of the boys spatter in the spring what they built in the winter, it would be more marketable..... or maybe make a Ranger or a Hughes 500 out of it.

Thoughts are welcome.

Anyone know where I can find plans to fit this puppy into a Jet Ranger fuse? I guess the Hughes 500 is a good fit.

Thanks for looking.

My experience as both a buyer and a seller on ebay is that all the action occurs in the last few minutes and the winning action in the last few seconds. You put it up for 5-10 days for exposure, but the truly interested bidders have it on their watch lists and know they have to snipe it in the last few seconds in order to have any chance of winning. Sorry you weren't able to sell it.

Yeah, I know. It's just that when things are this dead at the beginning of an auction, it means exactly as you said. The problem is, if only a couple guys bid on it when its got less than twelve hours left, I have to take what ever high bid is offered. It could be one dollar over my minimum. I've had that happen before. I would have put a reserve on it but ebay charges more than I want to give them for that option.
This is way to nice of a heli for me to just give away. I hate to tell someone what I want for it because they'd laugh. I'll just keep it for now.
OK, here's another thing. Before I listed mine, I looked to see if there was a comparrable heli listed. Usually if there is, it brings the price down having two competeing so I would wait. A day after I list mine another guy lists one and out advertizes me. What a guy. No one bids in 3 days, so I pull it. He can have the auction. Hope he does well. No big deal. Maybe I visit one of my old plank fields and torment my old plane buddies.
Thanks for your post.

Aint that just how it goes?

Gee, where were all you guys when I had it listed? I was hoping it would bring in between $800 to $1000 but not sure. With the other heli that was listed after mine, I expect the price would have been way less so I'm NOT selling now. When and if I sell it now I will relist on Ebay. They've been real good to me and since I listed it once, I would list it if selling again.
Thanks all. Really appreciate your posts.

Too bad you pulled it I was watching it. I don't bid on anything until the last 5min. It seems like a waste of my time to bid on stuff 2 days before the end this is the way most people buy on ebay.

Acted in haste - I know

Yeah, ya know I know better than that but something told me this was a deal going sour for me. I just had a feeling that I'd loose too much money when everyones got all their new winter projects just waiting for good weather (Northern States). Like I said, I coould have had to sell it for $1 over if one guy bid with 12 hours left. I've been disabled going on 5 weeks after a surgery and could have used the cash flow.
Sorry to waste your and others time. Thanks for the reply.
My apologies.

I was watching it as well. But as skew pointed out I don't start my bidding untill the final hour of the auction. Ebay is kinda tuff if your selling anything larger than a 50. 50s seem to bring big dollors compared to the larger birds. It's a nice setup and I don't blame you on not wanting to take a loss. Maybe when the weather gets better you'll have better luck. I know alot of wheeling and dealing goes on at the summer fun flys. At any rate... I wish you the best of luck and hope you get better with your injury.

Take care.

If it doesn't fit force it.....If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway !!!

You are absolutly correct. When the summer fun fly outings start and heli's are goen into the dirt in numbers I'm sure they'll be lots of guys with no time to build one before the next weekend comes. Granted, its no 90 super duper extreme 3D'r but just the same, how many people do you know that really can use a 90 to its full potental.
Thank for the post and the kind words. Do'en better every day. Crutches are a drag.

I'm sure there are alot of heli pilots out there that can fly a 3D 90 to it's limits. However....I'm not one of them. My helis can outfly me. Ahhh but in due time...in due time....someday I'll be able to fly like I know what I'm doing. In the mean time I'll just keep changing my shorts when my heli decides to do a crazy stunt that I did not mean to do. And when I say to the guys watching... "I meant to do that" and what I really meant to say was " Sh$t that was a close one....good thing that guy moved " Then I'll upgrade to a 90.

Be patiant....you will sell it for a good price. The weather will break... I hope soon.... and everyone will have nitro on the brain and your bird will turn a tidy price.

Take care.

I disagree to a point...actually rather agree to a different point. The starting bid was on the high side...that makes most bidders wait until the last second because they all know without a reserve, the best/smartest quickbidder wins and want to keep it as low as possible to keep their price down. Bidders look at 2 things, the price and willingness of other bidders. I too was watching it and remember that there are alot of pilots in different parts of the country who fly all year around. I notice that on Ebay, items with a lower starting bid will draw the hopefulls(hope to get something for nothing),lowballers who bid earlier and atleast draws other bids, and that draws the attention of true,avid Ebayers who knows that most auctions are won/lost with the last high bid. You see an item low and bid high,become the highest bidder and the posted bid is still on the low side. Then in the last minutes people bid their usual proxy bids and wonder how high did this guy go? It becomes a bluff game because they don't know how high you went. They are afraid to shoot a high bid because they may have to eat a cost they did not set out to cover. I believe that you would have made atleast in the 800 range, but with a lower starting bid. Don't want to get into reserve pricing, but I would do a reserve before doing a high starting bid.

I usually watch auctions before I post and saw a raptor 60 jump up to 800 range in the last few hours when it was in the 300-400 range. That was in the last few weeks, so not really a weather thing.

Then there is always the Raptor 30 that sells for near or over 1000 plus RTF!!!

Sure, there's a lot of different ways auctions play on Ebay. They're not all the same beginnings nor endings. All I was trying to say is that my gut feeling was that it wasn't going to turn out right. I may have been wrong. I made my deciassion to end the auction early in haste. I sure am no sales genious. You have good points but its over now. I have successifully inconvenienced many which was not my intention....sorry guys.
Hey leejax01, I looked at your gallery. Where did you get the foam inside for your Trex case. Perfect way to tote the machine.
Thanks for your input, Dale

Not selling the Rappy for now

Since I ended the Ebay auction early I've have numorus PM's asking how much I want for the Raptor. I can't express how much I appreciate the interest. I will not be selling the Raptor at this time. I will relist it on Ebay when I feel the time is right .... unless I can find a farmers field to fly nitro heli's at.
Thank you again for your interest.
