I have decided to step up from my 120SR to a larger CP heli. Someone has a new never flown T-Rex 500 ESP that they want to trade for my new in box iPad 16GB wifi 3G. I'm told the heli needs a battery, charger, and transmitter. Based on the research I've done this seems like a good heli and a decent deal for both parties.

Do you guys agree?

You are getting the short end of the stick on this deal if it comes no radio. a search of eBay completed listings shows that the iPad 16GB wifi 3G is selling NiB for an average of $600 to $1000. Heliproz sells the T-Rex 500 combo (everything but battery, charger, and radio) for $530 + shipping.

If you can 'unlock' (also known as 'jailbreaking') this iPad, you could post it on eBay for $750 and sell it fairly quickly. Then you would have enough $$ to cover the 500 combo and a DX7.

I think it's almost an exact even trade to be honest. Amain Hobbies has the 500 ESP Super Combo for $615 and the iPad 3g goes for $629 at BB and Walmart.

Find out what servos and gyro are included as that can make a big difference.

Thanks guys. Looking at craigslist and eBay it did seem like a fairly even trade. As for the electronics they're whatever came with the kit. He assembled it and never flew it. I'll ask him to look and let me know what they are.
