Might not be the best place to discus about this but here I say it... What is it with some guys who make ridiculous offers on stuffs knowing it worth a lot more... or asking for free shipping... if you do not want to pay for shipping you should consider to get it by yourself. I am a long time RunRyder member, this site use to be one of the best site for buying and selling stuff for serious guys.

It still is still the best place for classifieds .....

The best way to deal with the low ballers is simply ignore them by not responding......

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

Yes it happens all the time. I just tell them Thanks but I will pass. Most of my things hardly ever get used. You don't have to sell.

Don't let it bother you about the shipping. Many folks include it in the price or offer if for no other reason than to help make the sell. The same with PayPal fees, Just the cost of using PayPal. I don't let low ball offers bug me either. I've had a few turn into good buyers. You just never know. Also, I'm not sure this is the right location for this topic. The moderator may end up moving this one.

Well, in my case, I never try to low ball anyone. For me it's what is it worth TO ME. So, I'll look at it and if I have 30 other helis, which I do, I may offer a number according to my want factor. that's what drives all the prices on these birds, want factor.Someone might give 1000 bucks for a kobe kiko heli while I'll offer 100. So it's not always low balling. I also have been around a while and it's still the best site.

People have the right to low ball. We have the right to answer or not.

I have low balled people on out of production stuff, but not vintage collectable. I also wait at least a week after its listed and also say that my offer is good for a week or so, that way they still have some time to sell it for more during that time.
I've had all good responses from people probably because they know that I'm offering what its worth to me and I don't try to talk them into it. If they are tired of looking at it and talking to other tire kickers, a few have gotten back and sold it to me.

I may offer what I paid for a similar/the same item. If you think it is too low make a counter offer, but don't get insulted. Or just politely pm back no thanks.

There is a difference in making a realistic current market offer VS a low ball offer. If a person prices a Heli for 1500.00 and it Sits for sale for a while and I offer 800.00 I wouldn't say that was a low ball offer , more like a realistic real world offer when the Seller has priced the Heli above what the current market is for the heli, now if I would offer say 400.00 , That , would be considered IMO a low ball offer. Value is set by what people want to pay for a item, not by what the seller has inflated it to IMO.

Good negotiation(s) is when the buyer thinks they got a great deal while you (the seller) got a better one.

"How high do they go? Are those things hard too fly? How much do they cost?

Based on the prices of used helis, if the buyer thinks they got a great deal, I doubt the seller will feel anything other than CRAP!!!!

There are three numbers associated with a RC helicopter value; 1) what you paid for it, 2) what its worth; and 3) what you can actually sell it for. Those three numbers are wildly different. Getting upset about a #3 offer you don't like is a true waste of energy.

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

I've bought helicopters and parts dirt cheap and sold and made a nice profit, ie. ebay or people getting out of the hobby). So, I set my price accordingly. At the end of the day, no one can get you upset without your consent...so Low Ballers are trivial in the scope of things. I've dealt with "low ballers" but I've responded with a no thanks and move on to the price I decided was good for me.

The worst is when Low Ballers ask for a picture and than proceed with what they do best.

Low ballers or just the way it is?
Friend of mine once told me.. it’s only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
I don’t agree when I’m selling something, however, more than once I’ve been reasonable with offers, in other words paid top dollar to receive the exact opposite of the condition they’ve raved and posted. No longer will I give someone top dollar, let’s make the list:

Never crashed
3 flights
Built but never flown
The list goes on...

If the internet wasn’t filled with a bunch of liars and they took time to bubble wrap the hell out of things instead of throwing it in a box with two pieces of news paper, the canopy shows up cracked main gear has black dirt all over it, boom has a dent, and you say it was never flown? ...nowadays a kit costs $1000 you’re lucky if I give $450.

I live on both sides of the fence. But the trouble is no one is trustworthy and my perception of what is in “excellent/new condition” is obviously way different than someone else’s.

Yeeeeeppp I believe something is worth what someone else is willing to give you! I have given offers below what the owner thought it was worth. Some got mad some just said not thank you. I will also say I have have sold helis and accessories well below what I paid for. Some people also forget that a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow! So in the end we all work for that hobby money so I don’t blame anyone that tries to get an rc heli ornprt for as low as possible. Try not to take it so personal if your life depends on selling that heli at top price you might have a deeper issue, trust me I know I stepped away from the hobby before!
