hey guys,
need thoughts on if it would be better to make a web site to sell upgrade heli parts OR would it be better to just sell them on Ebay?

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Compare the Ebay fees to the cost of starting a website. Based on your anticipated or expected volume, one will cost less than the other. Base your decision on that comparison.

Best thing you could do would be to put that money into advertising here on RR and then just create a free FaceBook page to point the banner advertisements to.

Can you build the site yourself? If so and it is going to be a "serious" business venture I would say go that route and use paypal or squareup for payment processing. Websites are not expensive to build if you dont have to pay someone. As much as FB can be a good marketing tool I wouldnt rely solely on that. And I refuse to use ebay anymore. Just my .02.
