FlyZone Tidewater Value??

Hey guys.

I've got a FlyZone Tidewater float plane that I'm looking to potentially move.

It's the TX-R version, but the receiver has been swapped out for (I THINK) an Orange RX receiver...but it MIGHT be a Spektrum 4 channel.

Anyways, I don't know if I would be better off selling just the plane and listing the receiver separately, or if I should just sell them both together.

For what it's worth, the plane is brand new. It's rear horizontal stabilizer has been eaten by my cat, but I've got a new one for it...just not put on it. It's got it's original box as well. I got it to fly it at the local lake, but this past year wasn't very cooperative for that, so I never got a chance to fly it at all, and I don't think I'll have the time to do it this summer.

They sell for new on Tower for $170-ish with the receiver. I was thinking of listing it for $110 shipped with the receiver, or probably $100 shipped without the receiver. Does this sound like a fair price?

To me that sounds like it would sale since you have the shipping included. And yes I would list it both ways and sell the RX if it don't go with the plane.

Popular water plane.

At 100.00 shipped, w/o the RX, it should sell very fast.
If it were mine, i would probably list it at 110.00 without the RX & i bet it still sells fast.
Even with the current 20.00 discount at Tower, it would still cost 150.00.
Didn't yours come with the Tactic RX ?

Save y'self some potential hassle & also offer a 'w/Rx' price. If it sells that way you save having to advertise it again, negotiations, separate shipping hassles & cost, yada yada.
Just be sure to accurately list what Rx it is -- that makes a huge difference for most folks.
