Can anyone tell me about how much to spend on a never used Futaba Conquest 4nbf radio? (includes receiver and four servos) Not sure what the servos are. The radio was bought back in the early 80's I believe.

If this is an AM Conquest I beleive it is an old wideband unit therefore illegal to use and is not worth anything. There were a few of the last AM conquest's made that were narrowband but I can find no referance to that model on the Futaba Website. If it is an FM conquest then it is legal. All of the FM conquest were.

It's FM. I just was curious as to about how much it would cost. For example, I new Futaba Skysport 4 channel is about $100. Is the conquest comparable?

$100 sounds like a decent rpcie if it's never been used.

A radio that old is probably going to need new Tx & Rx nicads!

i'd try to get it for 50-75 due to the battery replacement, and maybe the Rx.

goodluck
