I recently saw a GMP Cobra (NIB) sell for $280.00 on eBay. A short time after that a GMP Cricket (NIB) sold of $501.00. Crickets are like gold these days.

I remember that $500 cricket! Wow! Interesting how the heli that was originally cheaper new is now worth more. Guess there's more of a nostalgia factor for more people with the Cricket.

Bring them to Ircha next weekend. I'd be interested in the Cobras maybe. One or all depending on the price.

I believe the black framed Cobras were known as the King Cobra which were 60 sized. Check the tail boom lenght to know for sure. I'll measure my King cobra if you need.

Haha! That was fast!

To add value data points to our collective knowledge, how much did they go for?

That's probably a pretty decent price you got considering it was a package deal. You probably would have had to deal with the headache of selling them each separately to realize much more than you did.

If you want a quick visual reference to distinguish the Cobra and the King Cobra, look at this picture, especially the rotor head:

Here's the King Cobra addendum manual:

Id say the Cobra / King Cobra ought to fetch a pretty decent price too, especially if NIB.
