Since it is really old, but in flyable condition (make sure to have that demonstrated before buying, and walk away if "it is not charged", or if it does not start rightaway, or any other suspicious things)

It is exactly worth the lowest of the following two numbers:
-what you are willing to pay,
-the minimum the current owner is willing to accept

and not a cent more....

I really hope it works out OK for you....

Even for that price, I would have walked away unless it was demonstrated to work, if needed with a batterypack not included in the sale....
I have learned my lessons spending a fortune on parts needed to get a cheap second hand helicopter back into shape....

Good luck with it. If all works out, you should have a nice flying helicopter with low operating cost.

Odds are you are going to have to replace every battery, that includes the TX, RX, starter, and glow battery's.
