Ok, I'm thinking of bailing. When trying to come to a fair price for my stuff, what is a good guidline? Most of what I have w/ my Trex is brand new, never flown. I'm thinking 60% of retail from prices by an online dealer like GrandRC (where much of it came, btw)

I've used the DX7 TX and 6100 in my BCP indoors for hover practice. Never crashed. Thinking 50% here.

I bought the GY-401 gyro used, but haven't used it myself. Thinking 40%.

Does this seem reasonable?

thanks.

That sounds fair to me... People will probably make you an offer anyways on stuff, especialy if your going to split it up...

I personally know someone who is in the market for a DX7 and would probably be willing to give you 50% if you include both the TX and the RX and the charger for the TX.

Dood, no way!

Whoa guys...I'm getting buried in PM for the radio. This was just an inquiry into pricing norms....not an ad. I'm not sure I'm ready to sell. Plus, if I do sell, it's going as a package.

60% is optimistic. Used RC helis and equipment don't really hold their value. Everyone wants new, are looking for a real bargain, know what the new cost is, and know you want out. And with used helis, it's generally buyer beware, as we have no idea of the actual condition of the equipment, how well it's been assembled, if it's been rebuilt several times......

50% on a good day.

Best way to find out is go to Ebay, do a search for Trexes under CLOSED auctions (ones that have ended). You'll be able to see what was sold, and what the bids were.

For some odd reason, though, used GY401s go for close to new pricing. Never figured that one out, except they are pretty darn good and reliable.

Good luck.

thats one hot radio, but to be honest, you might be able to sell it for over 50%

Pricing- You can get 60-85% for your stuff if it is what people want.

Your DX-7 you should be able to sell for 85% of retail value. If it works and is under warrantly no problem.
401's go for 90-105 shipped used.

I hope this helps.

In my experience you can get 55-65% of new if the item is in really good condition. Your radio you could go a little higher, it just depends on how fast you want to sell it. also set yourself up a paypal account for all transactions. Most people are honest however the key word is "most". I think ebay sells are a little on the high side but that is just my opinion.
