Sequestration? HA!

People in the private sector are poor. Full time jobs are becoming part time jobs and the cost of everything has skyrocketed while wages remain stagnant leaving less income to spend on hobbies.

Sequestration is money spent by the government. That money comes from the private sector; people being taxed to death.

We are not recovering. We are transforming and becoming the working poor majority.

I'm selling or giving away anything I don't have to have. Just going to try and maintain three birds. One 500E, & two 450's plus my nano, which does not need much maintaining. Can't even see my way to buy a better esc, or regulator for my 500, or lipos right now. So getting rid of everything nitro, expect my one plank. It's only going to get a *ell of a lot worse. Long as I got something to wrench on I care less, if I can fly it or not everyday. If I can fly once or twice a month I'm happy.

Noticed this same thing as well, very odd to say the least. Can't be the end of flying season becuase it seems that half the stuff I ship goes to Flordia anyways.

IF the economy is coming back to life and people feel better, I would suspect that funds are better and new equipment is the way people are going.

Honestly I wouldn't really consider selling on this site currently, way to many low ballers. I would put it up on ebay and if someone is willing to pay a FAIR price then so be it, so sick of people paying pennies on the dollar for a close to new heli. See alot more stuff selling there closer to fair prices, granted you gotta give ebay a portion of the proceeds, but still get 30% more per sale from what I have seen recently.

Hmm, not sure about the ebay stuff? I picked up a brand new Trex 700 pro there a few years ago and just happened to be the first guy that saw the ad. I paid 1/4 what it was worth for a heli loaded with upper end electronics that had never seen the air. And have continually seen helis not sell there at all for their asking price. Plus on auctions I did I might as well just given it away.
I have always gotten what I wanted when selling on the forums. I just don't have unrealistic expectations. I find the stuff that is usually priced right sells within days.

I guess I put a minimum or buy it now price and if people don't want it, you don't have to have lowball pm's or comments within your threads in the classified. I typically see things selling there for more, although that isn't necessarily always the case. If you don't get what price you want on either site then you simply just don't sell. I have seen 14mz going for 900 over there where people won't even consider offering that on this site. Just an example. Anyways, I will use both sites as I feel appropriate as should everyone.

Asking to much isn't 40% of the value of the heli, especially when it comes to boutique helis, I will be asking 75-80% of the value of the heli as when you "typically" buy these type of helis, they have been taken care of and the people have the money to own them and are "usually" not crashed. Their are people on either this site or ebay that will mislead you and that gives the rest a bad name. To say you can pay a few more dollars to get a new helis isn't correct either. Try about 50% more at least. Anyways, I will just offend people if I keep on with this conversation. As stated you take the offer or you leave it, simple. Cheers all
