Default Whats it worth?

What would a near mint, hardly ever flown 250 be worth? Mine has Alignes scale Hughes 500 body on it, and has a flybarless system for it as well. Though the flybarless is not yet installed.
Just wondering what it would be worth selling. Would like to get upcoming Eflite 300x and 450x as Id like to keep mu birds within the same family.
So, just curious, thanks.

Hard to say, with the new Pro kit out now, people will probably be looking for a real deal on an SE. The Pro super combo can be had for $375. And the 3G instead of a 3GX isn't going to raise the bar much. A 3GX can be had for under $100 'new' from the forsale forums.

I'd say the scale fuse is a giveaway... they're $60 new.

$300 might be fair if it's *pristine*. You might be able to ask $400 and see what you get.

You might want to troll the forsale section and see what they're getting. If memory serves one sold for about $275 not too long ago without a fuse.

I'd say if you're going to try and get rid of it, do it before the Pros are plentiful for your best return.

Cases are nice, except they don't hold the scale fuselage at all.
Seems cases are only made for pod+boom flyers, not scalers.

Seriously considering selling it now. Less and less interest to fly these days. So what would it be worth almost ready to fly, Hughes 500 fuselage mounted, and included but not installed Align flybarless unit? Also, it will NOT have TX, battery, and charger. But, it will be complete with reciever.

I have a clone 250 that was on Ebay. Has good electronics on it that are worth about 180.00 (w/2 lipos) which would give the heli for free, no takers. Wife wants to fly so this is her new trainer. She tried one of the big birds, aint doin that again.

The Pro kit is easy to get a hold of now for about $375.

I'd suggest that $200 is on the high side complete. Batteries and a fuse don't add value. They just round out the deal.

I just saw you listed it at $500.

That's pretty optimistic. Good luck on your sale.
