Looking at the pictures, I'd say you should do the hobby a favor and throw that in the garbage.
Rusty, dusty and ancient electronics.
You would no be doing anyone a favor by selling it.

You realize the Kyosho Nexus 30 was "new" in 2002?

The OP is planning to sell it, not fly it.
The unfortunate reality is some uninformed / noob will buy it without knowing the level of effort needed to get it somewhat ready to fly followed by the inevitable crash on the 1st flight.
Followed by the realization that are no places to buy parts for the model anymore and he has wasted his money and time.

That is not a great way to introduce someone to the helicopter side of the hobby.

You personally decided to fly old, antique, out of production helicopters.
That's great.
You may know what is involved with resurrecting a rusty, dusty model that hasn't been used in a decade.
In this case, maybe you can buy it from him and get it flying.

Get lots of roll pins for the clutch system! The head on that bird sucks, every time you get it to track do a climbout and then bam out of tract once back in hover and that's even with glass blades. Well good luck with the Nexus. I put in a lot of time with that model when it first came out sucking cash left and right for Zeal parts the hop-ups of yesteryear by Kyosho.

Nexus 30. I learned to fly around with one of those, I hope you didn't pay more than $100 for that thing and I'm being generous. You couldn't pay me enough to try fly that thing but I hope you find the right person so you can sell it good luck and happy flying.

How much do you expect to get for selling it? It's hard enough to sell new stuff for close to what you paid to buy it new. Something like this is probably worth next to nothing.

I learned to fly on the Nexus30. I got ALOT of hover practice in because I had no confidence in it for FF (so that is good at least). But it did break ALOT even though I never crashed it. Messed with it for two years before I upgraded to a better quality heli.

Chances are that you won't get a return on this one if you paid for it at all. Someone might offer you $30 to use it for a parts bird for one they already have or refurb it for nostalgic reasons. Unless you plan to hustle someone who doesn't know better, that one will be next to impossible sell for any amount of money.

I do recall a guy was specifically asking for a Nexus 30 months ago on RR and I offered mine for free but he never replied to his thread. Maybe he is still looking for one.

Frankly, I was just planning on making up a price and seeing what happens. I'll be open to offers, and if that fails then I'll try moving it on ebay for whatever it fetches. I bought 2 helis from the guy I got from, I was really only interested in the other one, but this one looks to be in good shape and since I didn't pay much for it, it seemed like an o.k. gamble. If it covers the price of what I paid for the other one I'll be happy.

there are people out there (probably not on here) that like kyosho 30 size birds from the 90's. The main gear, blades, engine and tail section is probably still worth something.

Talking about selling old helis - I couldn't believe how many old obsolete helis, pulled out the back shed after 10 years, were on the tables at Toledo this year - with a 250 or 300 dollar price tag (and 10 years of dust) on them! I hope nobody got suckered into buying one of those - at those priced.

true for right now, but then again when I purchased an old VW beetle 15 years back for 300$ people thought I was crazy. now that same car is worth 5000$. I just wish I held onto it to make that much. yesterday's garbage can be tomorrows gold, you never know.

I'm thinking that might be somewhat of a stretch for a Nexus 30...I couldn't even give mine away. But then again, you are probably right. You just never know.
