Why is he selling it in UK if he is a Rep in Washington? hence he live is USA

Go for it, Could be a Bargin, If unsure offer him Cash, and go collect it and pay for it once you have inspected it all, even ask for a demo flight 1st

I remember looking at that ad here on runryder being sold by someone here in the states. Sound suspicious to me. could be the same person but you never know.

edit:
I think it was a e-bay sale .I was shoping aroud for an Ion and looked at this one. The ad is exactly the same but it was for sale in the us. I think it is a scam but I could be wrong.

WATCH OUT!

He's a rip off, will want you to pay thru WesternUnion using square trade as insurance, but if you catch it...the $$ will be sent directly to another address, and kiss your $$ goodbye.

Almost got caught a month ago on same Ion....Western Union warned me off.

I emailed MinAir asking if the guy was genuine i.e. was he one of their Washington State reps. and they repied "This looks like our Ion X kit.." not much help, anyway here is the link I would like to know if anyone recognises the pictures. Have informed ebay of my concern, lets see what happens.

I would ask him if you could see it in person and if it's all right you will buy it. See if he says yes, if he says no then you know it's a scam.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE
Go see it, and pay in cash...it will never happen......exactly the same one I seen a couple months ago.

Many people complain to EBAY and they allowed the auction to continue......something to keep in the back of your mind when dealing on EBAY

In this case the old adage is very TRUE!

If it sounds to good to be true>>>>>>........it is!!!

Look at the price of similar Ion $1,500 - $2,500, don't kid yourself

I just noticed that this guy stuck it in the aeroplane section this time as it was well known in the Heli section....guy is getting smart....new meat for scamming

Think about it...A guy owns an Ion and doesn't even know which section to put it in on EBAY...ya right!

Fraud
This was Rob Clarks E-bay/Runryder ad from SEVERAL months ago.

This is a genuine fraud I can guarntee it.

Rob has long since sold this heli to my knowledge.
Report it to E-bay. I have seen this ad run at least 2 times now since Rob sold it.
