Wow Jeremy, that is one wild savings plan....but hey, if it works, then why the heck not!

I had to laugh at myself a couple years back. I put a plane, engine, can, servos etc absolutely everything RTF up for sale for $1500.00. After two weeks of having it listed, no taker. Had a few PM with guys asking questions and such, and a couple of guys wanting just this part or that part if I would be willing to split it up. Sooooo....!

I thought, well, lets take a chance here. If I split it and sell only part of the whole package, I may get stuck with the rest and not be able to sell it but thats the chance you take. So I split it and listed everything seperately.

I sold the airframe for $600. Then I sold the engine for $550. Sold the 6 high end digital servos for $400. Sold the can and header for $125 and the rest of the odds and ends for approx $125. Do the math!

It took me less than a week to sell everything, most of it picked up at the house and now I have $1800 cash in my pocket. Everyone who made a purchase was more than happy and I was very happy!!

It doesn't always work out that well, but again, its part of the game as you say!
