What is the safest was to trade helicopters with someone that lives in Puerto Rico? Does anyone have any ideas to where both parties can be protected from fraud?

You have some vacation time saved up? That's about the only way I'd do it...

You guys could have a neutral hobbyshop mediate...items to be traded are sent to the hobbyshop; when the items arrive and condition is agreed or disagreed upon, the hobbyshop can forward the items to their final destination. For a small fee of course....

Although I see the concern of shipping "overseas", I do not really understand. Shipping to Puerto Rico is like shipping to any other state in the union.

I was born and raised there. 95% of my extended family still lives there. Where in PR are you going to ship to?

I dont think the issue is shipping at all as we all know it is treated the same as a state for USPS.

I think the issue is being far enough away to not be able to have recourse if the trade is bad.

Yes, shiping is not the issue, it is being screwed and not being able to do anything about it, that is my concern.
I do like the idea of the neutral hobby shop.

I wouldn't do any such deal outside of the US, because you won't have the same protection you'd enjoy if it something went wrong and it was in the US.

Why not settle on a price and do the deal with PayPal?

Well, we both have what each other want so to pay cash is what we are trying to avoid.

Puerto Rico, Europe, USA no mater what Country you make a Trade that will be a Risk, because you do not know nothing about the Person you will Trade and you will not have any Warranty about the Item you will Trade, and you will not know if you will get an empty box, I believe that the reason of this thread about Puerto Rico is Wrong, this Threat will be better if is: "Trade is Safe ?" because for me Puerto Rico, USA, Europe, all are the Same, the Country will not Warranty you the Trade and Always will be a Risk no matter how many Feedback he have.

Until Today in Puerto Rico no body go into a Theater and Kill 12 people and Injury 58, but everyday no matter were Country you are can be a risk.

maybe you are right, I have changed the title so as not to make it look like I am bashing on the Island of or the people of the Island of PR. That was not my intention at all.

First of all and most importantly, is the person you are dealing with reputable? Check the person out, view feedback and even go as far as PMing those who have done deals with the person before.

I've had dealings, even a few trades with others on RR as well as other heli sites and have been lucky enough to have good deals.

The idea of getting a third party involved with the transaction is a good one, most especially if there are no fees for the third party

As to the question of protection from fraud for both traders/buyers/sellers, IMHO is a matter of trust.

My two cents.

I bought an engine from a guy in Finland.
I buy stuff from Japan, Thailand, China, Canada - hell, even France.

Swap matching funds equal to the fair trade amount through a Paypal account (no gift) backed up by a credit card. If either party pulls a fast one, your money is returned by filing a Paypal claim.

If you don't trust the person, don't deal with them no matter where they live.

Thanks for changing the title of the thread.
