$11,000 USD invested and it's not even got a turbine. Why bother?

Geez, some of you guys are pretty harsh.
I don't blame him for listing in USD because try as you might, jets like this more often will sell to a US buyer than a Canadian buyer, the jet contingency in Canada is far smaller and consists of less of the "high end" jets like the F4, as a result, pricing to the more obvious market makes sense. Beyond that, like it or not, the US dollar is a pretty known standard around the world, doesn't really matter what country somebody is from, they typically know where their dollar stands compared to the USD.
In case you don't have a clue where the Cdn dollar stands next to the US dollar, check out and use the currency convertor

Even selling my Gripen, I priced in USD because I had far more US inquiries than Canadian. I was very fortunate to sell to a Canadian buyer as shipping is much easier.

As for the price, $11,000 invested and why no turbine? Well, maybe he just wanted the best F4 available and couldn't afford another $4000 to put a turbine in it. If he paid to have the jet built then he's done well to only put 11K into a BVM F4. I've seen these things sell with turbines for nearly 20K. There just happens to be 2 on BVM's website right now, one for $17,500 with turbine, $15,000 without, and one that sold with engine for $19,500.

When you consider that the kit alone is $6500 plus shipping, the engine and fan systems are almost $1000 each from BVM, you're going to have a good $1000 or more invested in servo's, plus all the other associated stuff, it is a very expensive jet. And why make a comment about the money invested asking what's the point when he's asking half of what's invested.

Geez, the guy is offering a serious jet for a great price, I fail to see how half the posts in this ad need to be negative.

God forbid I ever decide to sell my Bandit :P
