Default What's this thing worth HELP!

Looking at selling this plane. Only thing is I have no idea what it's worth. It's fully fiberglass and has a OS MAX V speed motor in it. Carbon fiber prop. Any help would be great.

You can clean it up best you can and put it on Ebay starting bid 65.00 AUS plus shipping "as is no returns".
Run the bid for 2 wks to give folks time to spot it out in the end you should get at least 100 AUS plus for it.
Note limit shipping to cover your country only there is no way you want to sell off shore.

Looks like an old F! pylon racer. Depending on condition of engine, I would say around $150, unless it is a special plane to someone who see's it. The design does not look familiar to me. Post this in the pylon threads, and I am sure you will get more info. Not sure that engine was ever super competitive either. Not like the Super Tigre and then the Nelson.

Scotty, It looks like an older FAI pylon racer. One clue is the "grime" on the engine. FAI pylon uses a 80%/20%, alcohol and caster oil fuel. It looks like it has a lot of castor "gum" all over the front end.
Australia has a number of excellent FAI competitors. You should be able to find someone there who could tell you more about your find.You might try to get in touch with Bruce DeChastel there, and if you are successful, tell him I said hello. Greg
