I know nothing about these helis and I may end up with two Auroras with compass FBL heads on them as part of a package deal. Are they worth anything? Is there a market for these helis?

Any insight is appreciated!

Thanks

$200.00 to 300.00 would be the going rate on the airframe only.

Might I ask what you are basing those numbers on?

Condition of the airframes will make a huge difference. This is just a guess, but I would think between 3 & 400 each with the compass heads if they are good condition helis with no problems. If they had factory heads, I would guess between 4 & 500 if the helis are mint. Most people that are hadcore Aurora followers are usually very interested in the head. I would guess the missing Aurora heads could make resale harder if you plan on re-selling them. I am not bashing compass heads or putting them down, I just think the head is an important part of the Aurora to potential buyers.

Thanks for the reply's fellas. I pulled the trigger on the deal, so Ill have two airframes Ill be selling. Sounds like $250 each should generate a sale.

So if you know anyone looking...

Thanks again

He seemed like a really solid guy, and every item pic he sent me was immaculate. Tons of stuff still in the box, so I know it wasn't flown much.

I'm not trying to get rich on this stuff, just want to get my money back out of it...

Sorry I disagree no way... $200 or $300 please. The RigidCore FBL Head cost $200. The heli can sell for $500 to $600 easy. The Avant Aurora N/E is a very good flying heil.

So Charles would you sell your avants for 2 or 3 hundred dollars
.
I know I would not sell mine for that in fact I would not sell mine for less than 400 with the rjx head that's on it. the ridged core head may be nice looking but its just another flybarless head.

point is its a great helicopter and worth the money in m opinion
but that's just me. if someone wanted to offer me 200.00 or 300.00 for mine I would say no.

now if your talking t-rex700 ya 200 to 300 would be the going price for a used air frame. but its a mass produced helicopter that flies awesome there is just tons of them out there.

I would not sell for $200 to $300. Just as I said, the head is $200. If someone just wanted the airframe, the heli can go for $500. Put the head with the airframe you can sell around $500 to $600.
