Hey folks.. Question for ya....

I have met someone that is getting out of the hobby and has offered me everything for one price... problem is, most of his stuff isnt for me but wondering if its worth it, to unload this stuff. I'm having some issues finding some info on his stuff. it all looks very decent, and within the last ten years.
All planes are ready to fly. with JR/ Airtronics rx's and hitec servos and all motors are 2 stroke

Both radios are 72mhz
2 Tx's- JR sx600, and Airtronics VG6000

Awesome condition-Nexstar 60/ O.S. 55
never flown...P51 .40 arf (not sure of manufacture)/ GMS .60 gold head
never flown Dazzler .40 / Evolution .40 ( no on board radio)
never flown Vmar RamRod /vmax .46
the most flown is the Extra 300 / O.S. 25 fp
e-flite blade chopper (yellow) no batteries
Field box complete, fuel, lots of hardware, starters glow driver and all the usual stuff...

Please let me know your thoughts of what you think all this is worth, and would there be a market for it??

Thanks in advance

Re: Is it worth it?!?!

First rule of buying ANYTHING! - If you have to talk yourself into it - DON'T!

Next - If the majority of the stuff "Isn't YOU." - DON'T!

#3 The list of things that you posted is a mix of everything and it is dated (72 MHz radios are being phased out quickly), the aircraft are a mixed bag...

#4 If you are just starting off - buy quality and your worries will be few.

Life is either a daring adventure...
...or nothing.

Re: Is it worth it?!?!

I would have to agree. Let this opportunity pass and one for you will come along. This is more hassel that it is worth.
Takeoffs are optional, landings are mandatory

Re: Is it worth it?!?!

This hobby has changed so much in the last 5 years let alone ten that I would not bother. No price mentioned but if the seller goes buy what he paid for it to determine worth, then it will be way over priced.

Nexstar with 0s 55. $75
Don't like GMS or evolution
Field box, starter, glow driver that can have battery changed $25

Even hardware has changed a lot in 10 years. What are nuts and bolts worth?????

Re: Is it worth it?!?!

My 2cents. I agree with all the above being said but I would talk to the local club that you are going to join. Find out what they use. I would buy everything brand new if possible that way you start fresh and not picking up some ones head ache. Being a newbie you might not know what to look for in detail. May look good from the outside and emotion may take over with the possibility of a "good deal". Also you've built / assembles the plane so you know how much or how little glue has been used. If the transmitter has been dropped, shorted out, tinkered with internally. Starting out with new fresh stuff for your first go around is what I would recommend. After that you will now what to look for and what's a good deal.
Again just my 2 cents

Re: Is it worth it?!?!

He has been a member on here since Jan. 2007. I do not think that he is just start out as a new pilot. From what I read here he just want to know what a fair market value for these items would be and if there would be a resale market form them.

Re: Is it worth it?!?!

It probably depends on the area you're flying in. Some areas have clubs with guys interested in circle flying and scale stuff while other areas have clubs where almost everyone is into giant scale and helicopters.

I know around here you'd probably sell the stuff, but you wouldn't get much for most of it.
