What's my backup T-Rex worth?

I've decided to sell my backup T-Rex XL on ebay. I'm going to sell it ready to fly just add transmitter and lipo to fly. Here are the components and what I paid...

t-rex 450xl w/ Align Motor & Align ESC $240

full metal head upgrade $150

Futaba GY401 gyro $135

3 Hitec HS55 servos $50

1 Futaba s3154 digital tail servo $35

Hitec electron6 receiver on Channel 43 $60

I'd like to know what to expect as a minimum especially if you have sold one recently, thanks!

I recently bought one that was almost the same as yours, with a spares package and battery and charger, in almost new condition (five weeks old) but without the RX and full metal head for AUD$300.

Well, add it all up and subtract about %20. That should be your reserve price. Start the auction at about 40% off.


Personally, I'd try and get a friend to get into helis and just sell it to them.

Wow, that's a sweet deal wis310! USD that equates to about $250!!! I'd keep it for spare parts before I'd part with it for that but I'm glad to hear you got such a good deal! thanks.

it is a sweet bit of gear, and its getting sweeter..... seems it has a lot of metal parts on the mast I thought were plastic, so its semi blinged already. pretty happy with my deal.
Hope you get the $$ your looking for.

Well I decided the bare minimum I would accept would be $375 so I stuck it on ebay with that as the minimum. Based on Xptical and Ginvent it seems to be a good place to start. Thanks for all of the input.

Part it out you will most likely get more for it and quicker. The only problem with parting out is you may get stuck with something but usually will get more money.


buy the way how much do you want for the 401?
