Craig,

A Queen Bee in that condition should go for about $55. The really nice ones have gone for $90-$100, but I think top dollar for this one might be $60-$65.

Will you be listing it on RCGroups?

Really ?
I have one of those that's never even been out of it's box, as I lost all interest in using or even running the goofy thing... within hours of buying it actually.
Clearly not one of Cox's more successful efforts imo.
Constantly amazed by all this.

Wow, talk about short attention span, why don't you just sell it then?
With the right set-up these will run just fine and make about 18000rpm on a 6x3 prop; Video

I got mine on an old beater airplane at a swap meet and couldn't get it to run off a prime. Took it apart fiddled around and got fed up with it. Then I took it out after a few years and thought I would put in a Norvel .06 or .074 or something. I tied the Cox in the test stand and it goes pretty good. I got 15,400 witha 6"-3&1/2". without the muffler. I think that is about par with a TD .049 which wouldn't even be happy with that prop. and it has a throttle and muffler. If you are thinking of getting rich off of it, fine if you have 1,000 of them, but like most model motors, you may as well just run it and have fun.

Suppose I could never bothered tho..
Maybe when the prices become even sillier
Believed the constant adverts for it so I ordered one..sight unseen.
It proved seriously dissapointing on first viewing ..Initial impression was that it was a too heavy clunky design, especially so with that rear carb setup being wayy bigger than I had believed
Black Widow gives equal power.. easily. More noise though..

I like all cox engines for what they are and represent, Cox helped forward the hobby and pressed the manufactures towards smaller RC gear during there time.

1987 Queen Bee .074 RC(Cat# 3701 Manufactured 1987)
Rear reed valve RC engine. Uses a standard glow plug. Power output is similar to Tee Dee .051. Came out Mid 1987 and is listed in Cox 1987 Catalog.

Try 30% nitro :-) 18K was pretty well expected out of a BW during early/mid 70's.
NO big deal at all...if one only managed 17 k, it was immediately 'worked on'
Actually surprised that you find it exceptional. No parts engineering? No nitro fuels available in Scandinavia then or now ?

OK .. It's Heavy, Klunky , difficult to mount and it produced at best average, hardly outstanding performance.
Dunno If you noticed but it vanished..unseemingly quickly.
Eventually followed by COX itself, once the inertia wore down

The Queen Bee makes 18000rpm on a 6x3 on 10%Nitro, as shown in the movie above.

Your claim that a BW makes the same power, easily, was flawed as you self now have pointed out.
