I need your opinion

I just bought a used DX7 packaged with an AR7000, AR6100 2 microServo, one Standard servo, battery, charger, aluminum case and neck strap all for $250.00.

Now it being used and all....Is this a good deal?? Is there any issues buying a used one? Anything I should be weary of?

Re: I need your opinion

Great Hobbies prices is $360 + tax and shipping for the TX, AR7000, and 3 micro servos. I'd say you did OK..
Make sure both receivers bind with the TX and do a range check. Also check that the receivers re bind without delay ..
here is the link ..

Re: I need your opinion

My opinion for $120 more you are getting brand new with no chance of crash issues, I never buy used radios not worth the risk.Unless of course its from a buddy you know and can trust.

Re: I need your opinion

For you, you probably did the right thing buying new. The very fact that you started this thread was because you were concerned about buying used.

Personally, I have purchased a total of 4 radios and upwards of 12 receivers from various folks here on RCCanada and have been more than satisfied with every purchase.

When buying anything used on this type of forem, use the tools supplied to help you through your decision to buy or not to buy. "Traider Feedback" is probably one of the most useful venues we have. Also do some research and ask around about the person you're planning on dealing with. Also, myself personally, I very rairly buy anything used that is within 20% or so of new. ( New .. $200, Used .. $160+ = buy new) unless of course I know or have successfully delt with this person in the past and I know I'm getting a good product.

A bit of good advise that applies to just about anything in life was written on a little sign taped to the instrument panel of the 140 Piper Cherokee I was training in which stated: "IF in doubt...don't!"

All the best with your "new" radio system!
