What really makes me laugh are those folks selling their goods here on RR and then "threaten" to place their ads on Ebay if they haven't been able to sell here....

"Ok, guys......... if not sold by such and such a date, I'll take it to Ebay"..... or something like that.......

Well, buddy...........take your crap to Ebay, why don't you. ??

Ebay to me is the bottom of the barrel.....anyone buying from Ebay these days is taking one hell of a chance.......and chances are great that they will be ripped off !!!

It only bugs me when they post with a title like "T-Rex 450 RTF $100" because that's their opening bid on ebay. Frankly I think that's plainly and intentionally deceptive.

But to be honest I don't see a lot of that here. I see it all the time on the kitesurfing forum.

You guys can laugh all you want about it!!

But just last week I had a perfectly good futaba r149dp rx on channel 52 that I had just taken out of a knight 50 heli and tried to sell here on rr and after a week of no responses I sold it for $10.00 bucks more for than I wanted here on rr.

so you guys are telling me that I am selling junk here on rr and that I only sold it on ebay because it was junk?

I think when you sell things on rr ,because we are all in the same hobby I like to give my fellow rr members a chance at it first.

The reason people use ebay was already summed up by JeepCJ,
Even though I have never posted a link to an ebay ad. Sometimes I do not want to deal with the PM's from members who are trying get something for next to nothing. I swear, If you list a RTF NIB dream machine for a buck, you are going to have to deal with a bunch of PM's from folks offering fifty cents if you will ship for free. Thats just trying to take advantage of someone. I will look and see what something is selling for her on RR, and offer it for a more than fair price. If there is no interest, off it goes to ebay.
I don't think it's a threat when people say they will put it on ebay in x amount of days. They are basically saying if you are on the fence about buying it then the window to buy it from this forum at that price is closing soon.

Using ebay as a seller will cost you fees but you will generally sell it for more money on ebay so the fees aren't really an issue.

I don't think it matters one little bit if you sell your stuff here, helifreak, rcu, rc groups or ebay. I also don't understand why anyone is bitching about it to begin with.

Nothing personal. Just an observation. And, this is just a toy RC heli forum, no big deal. For every issue raised, there's always going to be two different sides to an issue. It's a fact, period. The fun part is, being entertained by both sides .

I love all the deceptive Ebay auctions. People are getting wise to them and it makes my legitimate auctions look good.

I've sold a bunch of helis here and on Ebay. If I list it here and nobody bites, I usually then put it on Ebay and it goes for a lot more than I could get on here. People have even tried to lowball me here and then bid more on it on Ebay than I had it listed here.

Cool!!!

You'll get low-ballers here period. It's a fact. Just ignore them. That's what I would do. I usually sell my stuff 50% off, almost always. I'll still get guys asking me to knock off additional 20%. I would just laugh inside, ignore them, and move on. Nothing personally taken.

Happy Bidding

Well, I have a listing on Ebay right now, it appears I am getting a lot of screwy bids and scammer bids. Oh well, back to RR listings only.

I give up on Loctite, nothing lasts long enough to vibrate loose anymore.
