It's like asking how much to pay for a used car. Seeing how it is out of production and some parts may be hard to get, that alone will drop the price. What it comes with or without, how beat the hull is and condition of the engine and everything else all have a bearing on what one would pay. Half of what the street price of what it went for new is a good place to start.

One price that I did find from Tower Hobbies back in 1998 was $259.99, whether or not that included any radio gear, I don't know.

It's up to you and like I said what comes with it and the condition. I thought that with a little work that boat might have some possibilities. A decent .21 and re-doing the running gear might make it a lot more fun!
