Default Taurus kit price

Hi,

I have a old stock, new in the box Taurus balsa wood kit 35-45 engine size from top Flight. A friend wants to buy it and is offering $100 for it.
I was just wondering if that was to much for it? I don't want to over charge him.
I went to the sales of kits and there was nothing there to help.

thanks for any advice.

go to RC Groups and look at prices on the "fueled plane classified page", you will see a lot of prices there

That kit would probably be worth over twice that $100 depending on the condition. It might considered a sought after classic in some areas. I can assure you at $100 you're not overcharging him... I'm suggesting quite the contrary actually. I have many kits in my collection, and I'd have a TF Taurus in there as well if I found one for $100.

EDIT: I got curious as I was writing.. so I Googled the plane. Here, have a look at this.... my figures were a little off....of course this one is probably pristine, but it's in the ball park for a good one..

Here's one more that sold a while back..,, more realistic price, and probably a good deal...
