A friend of mine has a new Predator, metal frames, Hanson-Modified G26, carbon blades. There is less than 3 hours total flying time on the heli, it's never been scratched. Another friend has the exact same heli, but that one was crashed inverted, to the tune of about $400's worth of damages. I believe that's why the perfect one is being sold, its owner can't stomach the potential for major cash outlays at this point.

They both want to sell their respective helis. Separately, or together. I think the guy with the crashed one wants to trade for a working Raptor 50. The guy with the new one wants money, not trades.

Where is the best place to advertise them? Ebay? RR? Is it allowed on RR? Should I tell them to put pictures, or is it frowned upon? Which forum? I've seen the classifieds are for "nitro" or electric.

Thanks for any info,

Gigi

My heli spending has gone way down since I got a Honda 919 :-)

Go throw and ad in the helis for sale forum, not the electric one, but the normal nitro one. Be prepared for some SERIOUS lowball offers, people on here are cheap, but in the end, the right price will come along. Or put it on eBay (you can even do both), you never know, sometimes things go for ridiculous prices on there.

I've actually considered selling my Carbon SE Pred Gasser as well for the exact same reason, but in the end I know I'd regret it. This is the heli I've wanted for a long time, I can't get rid of it now that I've finally gotten it.

Let your friends know that they are more than welcome in selling their helis on the Classified section. Putting it on eBay is also allowed however, there are certain rules they will need to adhere to when posting a "for Sale" on RR.

Let them know that they need to post a "asking price" for the helicopters. Also tell them a picture of the helicopters would help a perspective buyer to see. It will also help them if they have a fully filled out profile (just like yours, gigi ) so that the buyers would be more confident in dealing with that person.

Good luck in their sale. (I might have a crack at it )

Hey James, I'll trade you mine for the 'Busa in your gallery! I actually have been thinking getting a new bike, and I think the Hayabusa is the way to go, I think I could dry my tears about losing my Pred in the 200mph winds

Well, guys, thanks for the answers.

The Predator SE in flying condition is SOLD already! A local guy picked it up this after-noon for $1,400, including full electronics! Nice deal, I say. The gyro was a GY401/9254, and the servos and 8-channel RX were JR. I saw the gallon of fuel, 3/4 full, it was the second one.

I'll send your email to the other guy, Polyhedron.

James, are you really sending a Rappy to Haiti? Who's the buyer?

Regards,

Gigi

Unless the 'Busa is modified, it'll be restricted to 300KPH (186MPH). I find 150MPH on my VFR800 will pull tears out of my eyes just fine. Have to remember to NOT sit up at that speed or you'll get blown off the bike. But, for power to weight I think the GXR1000 would get you there faster.

Sorry to snafu the thread.

Also the first year of the Busa wasn't restricted. I sold them when they came out,a nd rode the first one in NH. Amazing bike, a little heavy, but a great machine. Fastest I've seen on a bike is 166 on my 98 CBR 900RR, that was on GPS. Nice and stable, but scary as hell. God I miss it, I need a new bike. Maybe I should sell my Pred, that'd take a huge chunk out of a new bike.
