Have an Entire Airplane Package and Need Opinions on Value
I was wondering if you would be willing to give me a little guidance on a R/C Airplane setup I have. Several years ago, I severely injured my back and have been stuck at home for years. I was going bonkers just watching TV, so I decided I would build an R/C Airplane to keep me busy, since I used to fly R/C gliders when I was much younger. I have always loved the war planes of WWII. My favorite being the F4U Corsair. So I bought a Hanger 9 F4U Corsair, 60 size ARF. It has a 5.525 foot wingspan and is 51” long. After I finished putting it together, I thought at some point, I would be able to go do things again when my back got better, so I bought a Saito FA100GK 4 stroke gold top engine for the plane, and a Futaba 7CAP/7CHP Radio and installed all the servos, retracts , fuel tank Etc.,and setup the mounting for the engine with a 3 blade prop. After setting up the engine mounting, I put the engine right back in its original box and only tried the radio to test the servos and returned it to the box. The engine has never even had fuel in it. I also bought a Hitec Master Caddy field box with a Hobbico deluxe power panel, electric fuel pump and all the accessories such as an electric prop starter, glow plug power unit and basically everything I would need to fly the plane. Well I still can’t do much of anything, and have had to have 8 back surgeries so far, and am going in for another test to see if I need a 9th surgery.
Long story short, it doesn’t make sense for me to keep all this basically new never used equipment sitting in boxes, and the plane hanging from the ceiling, if I am never going to be able to use them. So I was wondering if some of you might be able to tell me what you think a setup like that is worth.

I really feel this setup should be put to use by someone who can not only appreciate it, but use it.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
