Thanks. The guy was asking 90.00 for it without a RX or batteries. The TX batteries are of unknown condition. Is that a fair price? Joe

Im sure it took at least 9hrs. to get it to that state with engine your at 10 bucks an hr. plus shipping good price.
Should be a floater on landings.

A more modern take on airfoil and tail feathers interpreted in this pic and perhaps no dihedral.
Ailerons would make it a nice acro 4ch el vintage style.

That queen bee engine although not powerful is worth at least 50 dollars if not more.

I'd pay that without complaint for a decently built model with a clean looking engine - for sure. Even if it ain't so good up close and personal.. like raptor says, assign $50 to the engine value and you're paying about $40 for a complete vintage model. Sounds okay to me.

The transmitter is pretty useless with no receiver, or at least a matching crystal. Then the batteries. It does look pretty though. Offer him less of course. There is a mod. for the Cox Queen Bee carb. It needs a hole drilled in a certain place. It idles quite well then, and is a fairly nice motor as reedies go.
