Default RE: Best R/C Auction Sites


ORIGINAL: firstplaceaviator

On the other hand, I have sold several old Cox P-40's on eBay. Usually, they sell for $100.00-$175.00
On one auction, there was a bidding war right at the end. The winner paid $450.00 for the plane. To me, that is just stupid and wasteful!

I was watching that auction too! I was wishing it was mine they were bidding on. I listed one right after that and it didn't even get close to the reserve, listed it 2 months later and it got $275. Amazing.

I buy a ton of kits on there, and then sell them at other times and make money on them. Sometimes you can steal them. I got a few in dec that I got for half of what they were worth, now if I can just find some buyers to bid them up so I can sell them for twice what they are worth I will be happy!
