Synergy N7
Considering selling my Synergy N7. Hovered it an put it in a bag.
Should I part it out and sell the Frame?

Would rather just sell it outright. Opinions. Admonishments. Funny comments.

Are you asking if you should part out the frame and sell the individual kit pieces? Or are you asking if you should try and sell the model ready to fly as apposed to selling the servos, FBL, ESC, etc. individually?"Well, nothing bad can happen now."

N7
Want to sell it RTF. Not sure about the N7. What is the Hot 700 Nitro now?
Don't want to give the Heli away. Should I sell airframe and components separate?

There is no cost to trying to sell the model complete - if that is what you want to do. Very often modelers will ask you if you are willing to sell some individual piece or ask if you'd be willing to sell the model without something (such as servos or FBL unit) (for a reduced price).

Me? I chunk it out there as you which to sell it, for a price you'd be happy to get. Give yourself some room to negotiate and ignore low-ball offers.

If time passes and you can't generate any interest, consider modifying your expectations. That may be reducing the overall price or trying to sell the model components individually.

Often selling a model ready to fly is a little tricky. Your model complete will be a pretty big check to write and the buyer will almost certainly prefer some component other than what you have installed (i.e. you have a Futaba FBL installed and they know and prefer iKon).

I'm sure others will offer their advice and experience.

raholek What is the Hot 700 Nitro now?
Synergy models are loved by all. Someone will be interested in your model. The choices for glow model helicopters has moved off its peak. If I were to build a new "N" model I'd consider a Mikado GLogo. I built an Align 700XN last year and like it enough. I would certainly recommend it to a friend. There is also the SAB Nitro Goblins. SAB has a devout following similar to Synergy.

I saw your N7 in your gallery. Beautiful heli, great build and wiring skills. Id say, Sell it as RTF! If I was into nitro these days, I'd feel it was a score.Still buyin' and flyin' then crashing and cryin'

It’s always easiest to sell rtf, but you never get as much money as parting it out and the market is much smaller for people who want a whole machine. The N7 is still the current Synergy nitro and is a great design, I love mine.

I’ve been watching used sales of the. For about 6mo (sold mine last year and wanted to replace it, finally did earlier this month). Depending on what you’ve got in it RTF N7s have been going for $1000-$1300. Not much compared to what they cost to build. Splitting up you do a bit better but the main thing is components sell faster. Airframes go from $500-$600, OS105 $350-400, Pipe $75-100, Blades $50-100, FBL $100-$200, servos $150-350.
