Just recently, I had 4 transactions on the classified and 3 out of 4 are good deal while the other one, lets just say I'm not 100% satisfied but hey, I can't complain as I'm buying a used one and don't expect it to look/work like new. Its really a risk you have to take for saving a couple of bucks. That said, you can't beat a CC35 for $10 shipped.

Lesson learned
I learned a real lesson on this subject not to long ago. I bought a used Trex 600N not to long ago and only bought it to get what I thought was the good stuff off of it and then decided to sell the airframe only. It was my fault when I did not look the heli over when I got it, I was so excited about a good deal I didn't look over the condition of the airframe before I sold it. The buyer was not happy when he got the heli, it ended up being well worn out. To me that was all my fault for not making sure and explaining better what I had done so the buyer would be aware of it. I offered to take the heli back but he decided to keep it and I paid him for the parts that was needed to fix it. The OS Hyper I got out of the deal ended up being junk as well. Lesson learned, try to explain in detail what you are selling.
There is one more thing I find going on more and more. What is so hard about making sure all the parts are there when you pack up a used heli for shipping, nothing I hate worse than getting a used heli from someone and they forget to pack all the parts, how hard is it to pack up the little screws in plastic sandwich bags??????

I agree about the screws and small pieces. I once received a heli in a 4ft tall box full of peanuts. For some reason they didn't think is was important to put the screws and standoffs and such in a bag, imagine the fun i had looking for those parts in all the peanuts.

But look on the bright side, i have had issues before but people have gone above and beyond to make things right. All and all you can find yourself great deals. keep in mind though, if you get items for almost half of the original price, you need to be willing to work with the people and be willing to check and repair items.
