Default Ridiculous Ebay prices

I saw an Avistar hi wing 40-50 glow for sale on Ebay, the seller was asking $899.00 plus something like $154.00 shipping. The Avistar is a terrific advanced trainer, semi symmetrical wing. I had one. These clowns are out of their minds asking the prices they do for some rather simple glow planes.

I got a beater T Tiger 60 semi symm hi wing from a fellow club member for something like 30 bucks. Pushrods, servo trays inc. I supplied 4 Futaba 3004's, a switch, fuel tank and a Tactic 625 6 ch Rx and an old ASP 61. One of the nicest flying planes in my hangar. Cheap. We guide the new guys into the proper trainer planes. I am a trainer and use the Apprentice, Timber, Aero-Scout electric, Conscendo electric etc. Swaps are coming up, plenty of stuff out there for the new guys.

I'm LOL every single day at prices the dreamers are asking for some 2nd. hand models and other RC bits listed on RC Traders. New lots popping up daily like a mushrooms after the rain, clearly showing up the state of economy collapse. No wonder the most of listings are there for ever and ever. I have found in most cases you'll be lucky to sell the stuff for 1/5th of the replacement cost these days.
I'm currently trying to get rid off one of my last IC model in immaculate conditions, 100inch span Twin Mitchell bomber, each motor replacement is 600bux on its own, and not getting any bites even at 500 bux for the fully fitted model with 12 top servos and other bits for ready to fly it, LOL.

Runs like a Swiss watch off 2x "OS70Fourtacts"

I was being sarcastic! At a Swap in the USA it would be lucky if it sold for $75.00.

I was only being generous, but personally wouldn't take it ever for "FREE". As I said, everything sells at right price! Few weeks back I listed for sale 42 brand new glow plugs, F-Types, Enyas#3 and Rossis#5, plus 4 new Spark Plugs to suit DA50-100cc IC. I was asking less than 5 bux each (Austr), my wife wanted to kill me! The phone haven't stopped all day long from all the desperado cheap scates, I got at least 100 calls and emails, even real nasty ones from few claiming to be the first, LOL. Some fools were even asking, "can I have 3 Enyas?", etc. LOL, sold it only as a one lot.

Default Beware of kit's on eBay

Look carefully at the pictures!
There have been a lot of kit's listed on Epay lately that are only the scraps and remains of the kit, after the plane was completed.
Uneducated, or unknowing sellers are using the excuse that the kit "MAY be incomplete"
but they have no way of knowing.
I bought a "complete kit" recently, and found it was missing most of the fuselage sides.
Buyer beware!!

You trust your money to a UNSEEN person using a JUNK computer web site ????? You should lose your money. Good way to learn about no way to get what you paid for.

I'm LOL, when checking up daily for some bargains on RCT, I just can't belive these fools, no wonder they never sell anything and the same ads are there for ever&ever. Some nut case is asking 1200bux for 2nd. hand foamy 80mm Mig-29 crap. The 1/3 of it would be more realistic, but won't get even that now a days with the severe depression right here. Most people are lucky to feed their kids with the inflation of the basic necessities. LOL.
