    Shuttle Z(X) - What is it worth?

    I have a Shuttle Z that was purchased many years ago (1991). It was purchased brand new but as new it pretty much had all ZX parts except for the bearings in the head (it has bushings). The clutch is the single piece ZX style with a belt starter (not the same as the Z clutch) and it has tail boom braces. I have replaced the tail fins with the new design (old ones got brittle) as well as a new main shaft, feathering shaft, main blades (wood) and replaced the swash, other than that, it's all stock (original). The motor is an ENYA 35 and ran very smooth last summer after I stripped it down and replaced the bearings.

    It sat in a box for about 15 years then I got it out last summer. I tried using my original Futaba 5NLH that was purchased with the heli back in 1991 but his was not a good move due to the age of teh radio and crystals. As a result I wound up breaking the landing gear and put it away again. I would say the heli has a total of about 5 gal of fuel through it. Sense, I have moved to Trex 450 clone and RDS8000.

    I do not want to get back into Nytro now that I have moved into electric (don't like the oil mess).

    I am thinking of listing it (I will replace the landing gear) for sale (or maybe even trade) but dont know what to ask for it. If I do I will list it with the motor but without electronics.

    Any thoughts?
    There is an art to flying an RC Helicopter. The art lies in learning how to throw it at the ground and miss.

    You can follow Shuttle prices on Ebay to get an idea. There are always a number of them for sale there, many with engines and radios.
