Hey guys I'm making this post because I have a rtf RJX 50 thats just sitting around that I dont know if I should sell it or hold on to it. I have really no intentions of flying it because I got a trex 600e. The heli is almost brand new and its never been flown or hovered. My question to yall is do you think I should put it on here and try and sell it or what? I'm a little reluctant because I've never seen one for sale on here and I just dont if there is a huge market for them. Let me know what yall think. Thanks guys

Is it the older one thats a clone of the JR airskipper?

I had one for a year or so and it was a great heli, I personally prefered it to the JR because it was all metal and looked more modern.

Nice heli, but not sure if parts are available anymore.

RJX used to sell an electric conversion kit, not sure anymore though.

Yea i mean this is a sweet looking heli but id rather sell or trade it to someone who enjoys nitro a little more than me so i can get an electric.

All I would say is you may be pleasantly surprised how nice that heli is to fly if you have only ever flown a Rex 600e, I cant comment on the Extreme but my Jr Airskipper clone was so easy and smooth to fly FFF it was almost like flying an RC airplane, nothing like wrestleing my 600e around trying to keep the nose from pitching up, was completely different way of flying realy, the heli seemed to have its own momentum like a plane does, with the trex 600 its though you need to constantly work to keep it moveing along fast, its always trying to stop.

I went through the same process when I found my Xtreme 50. I kept it and have a supplier in Ind. that carries all the parts I will need.

I am waiting for a gyro/servo to get mine in the air.
These helis are popular in the UK. Besides, how many at your field fly a RJX?
Nice to have something no one else does at the field.

It really is a nice heli. I think it's the best flying 50 out there. However, they aren't worth a thing, so you may as well keep it. My current one was bought for $125 here in the classifieds.

I've sold too many helis that I wish I still had.
I aim to never sell another one.

If you "need" the money for a heli you want,sell.

If you can get by without the extra money,by all means keep it.

I literally never use the word literally right.
