Depends on how interested a buyer you find I would say in the $150-$250 dollar range not having any more info on it.

Thanks Daniel

Not sure it would see much beyond $250.


You say the motor is clean - but that is one of the dirtiest looking clean motors I have seen.
Use some carburettor cleaner or simple green and use a tooth brush to scrub down the motor before taking pictures if you do end up listing it for sale. (Watch the solvents on your paint and graphics as they may run - but it will clean your inside of the hull well too).

New RTR about $600. 2nd hand 1/2 price less missing parts puts it at about $200 MAX

Just so you know, that engine is a old 230 zenoah so it isn't worth as much as the newer 260's. The $200 to $250 price sounds correct to me. It could be higher if the hull was a well known brand, but It doesn't look like it to me. Missing the hardware hurts too. Buyers like a complete hull and hardware package even if it needs work it's still easier and cheaper than having to get all of the hardware again.

Are you thinking of selling, or fix it to run?
