Il ask how my dad feels about that and see what I can do be it keep it and sell it later or try to sell it nowred7fifty said:Reserve auctions......suck.
Personally, I'd just rather see the minimum selling price. I won't even bother bidding on reserved items. I feel it's a waste of my time.
Most private seller accounts on ebay, can post 50 items per month, without a listing charge. They only charge if it sells. Then, it's 10% plus paypal fees, so figure, it costs 13% to do business. (Ebay is getting greedy, but, it works)
I'd probably list it for $750.00.....and see what happens. It might sell for $750.00, it might not sell. It might take a few weeks worth or relisting it. It could also fetch way more. A lot depends on the amount of exposure. Key words like "Rare Vintage O.S. Engines Radio Control Transmitter."..etc. etc. plus, make sure you list the model number in the ad. Helps pull up in a search.
But, you have to decide how much it's worth to you. I'm not an appraiser, and, this is a rare item. So, I really have no idea. The funny thing about timing.......I've started sales trends in the past, where there was no info on a rare item....I've started the ball rolling, and collectors started selling their stuff when the see some of the prices. And, in those cases, sometimes they get more money, for worst condition items. Then, just as fast, the market can cool off, and can drag on to take 1 1/2 years to sell the next one. Market supply and demand. Economics 101.
Buzzkill! Just kidding, thank you for the information.calypso said:Here is a similar one (model TX-12S) that sold on EBay last month for $405.
I'm thinking pay off my spinner Cody my new prop and then put the rest into a car or a new airframe.red7fifty said:Don't worry, I'm gonna unbuzzkill the buzzkill (no offense), by saying, that $400.00 was transmitter only.
With a receiver and a couple servos, I think $700something is reasonable....to the collector.
Me, I'd rather buy another set of BLS servos...or a plane ticket to Hawaii, with hotel.
