Once in a while just for laughs and just because you never know what might pop up I type in Helicopter to my local Craigslist. I've seen old Hirobo Shuttles with prices in the $600-900 range. Tonite I saw a Align 450 V2 with an asking price of $800. Another ad said "Really Big Helicopter runs good $600"

Does anybody else find these amusing? I just feel bad for some clueless fellow who is looking for a present for their kid and thinks they are getting something cool at these kinds of prices.

X-CELL 600 SERIES GAS WITH A JR PRO 6 CHANNEL $700...yaaaaa Good luck with that.

Just because it cost you $700 10 years ago and it's been on a shelf ever since doesn't mean it's worth that now!

Backwards they may have been, but at least they were Aligned. You know 98% of heli pilots don't align their paddles.

The other side. A friend while in Fla. Picked a new Align 550 BNF for 400 bucks. It was a bargain.

Yep, I've seen these too. I let karma catch up with people like that trying to take advantage of others. I've been seeing more and more people who I have been waiting for karma to catch up with, get smacked pretty hard.
