What is this collection worth? 4 Helis and DX6i

Hey All! First off I appreciate any advice.

Full album: http://imgur.com/a/pXw7S

Most of it is like new, it belonged to my dad and I don't think he was ever able to get a real flight in (hover a couple feet than crash ha).

From what I gather

Two x Honey Bee King 2
Two x Exi Hobby Bodies
DX6i Controller
Tons of parts, chargers, batteries etc
Tool kit, etc

I am located in Toronto Canada if that helps price. Probably would need to sell together since I'm a noob. Wish I had more time for another hobby!

I wasn't sure where to post this, I apologize if this is the wrong place.

Hi Jake,

Unfortunately, I think you'll find it tricky to move that as a collection... but here's my opinion on what I see:

The DX6i is probably the easiest item to sell. I've seen them listed at around $80-$100 depending on the condition. It's a solid entry level radio and there's usually someone in the market.

Lipos are usually easy to move, but condition is critical. I think I see three 3S 1300 (one brand new) and a pair of 3S 2200 (one looks pretty beat). If you're not sure how they were stored or used, it would be pretty hard to set a value. (Value heads toward zero if they feel puffy)

Those EXI 450 kits are clones of the TREX 450 and they were maybe around $50 about 8 years ago.. now I think your kit would sell for maybe $20-$25?

Your completed EXI 450 has a CopterX head\tail and I think those are HS65MG servos along with a decent GY401 gyro. The motor and ESC are most likely HK (or similar) level electronics. The market is already pretty dry on high end Flybar helis... so, Clone Flybar helis like this might fetch $75-ish dollars? (The Hitec servos contributing to most of that value)

I'm not familiar with the two ESKY helis, but I suspect parts are potentially becoming scarce. I can't remember seeing one sell, but anyone still flying one would be happy to get the spares. I have no idea where to set the price point. (Maybe search the forums for similar listings)

I think I would split the collection into those categories (or just include the batteries with the respective helis)... Hope that helps a little.
