Hi all,
time for me to move on from Helis, it was a good experience but the weather and hills are more appropriate for gliders in my area. So I sell all my heli bits and pieces.

The Trex was bough as a second hand in sept 2008, I had 3 crashes with it (you got to fall to learn... ) but I always bough original Align parts. It is originally a SE version with V2 frames. It is in mechanicall flying order and just miss the canopy and some electronic (see below for details ).

The Protos was bough in may 2009, NEVER CRASHED, I flew no more than 50 packs on it, set up was for a123. Canomod canopy, original canopy not included, it was cracked when received it, went to the bin. The only things missing are the plastic canopy mount.

Note that even though I started Helis in Sept 08 I do hobby since 1989, I didn't stress the helis, mostly circuits, some loops and flips. Far from being hard core 3d guys.

Everything is in perfect working order and bough between october 08 and July 09.

430XL motor

Trex aluminum case, assuming that it's the big case that holds an assembled heli
both RCE-BL35X speed controllers
Let me know the total shipped cost to California 90272. I think the total before shipping is $155 US

Jim I'll give you the priority on the Trex if you still want it, you better wait for the photos though . TheAlign box is the big one, It has scratches I have to admit but it is what it is made for, hinges and lock and protectives coins are all in good shapes, it is cosmetic scratches.

POSTAGE PROTOS+SPARES:
56.50AUS$ if between 1750 and 2000g with registered parcel
51 AU$ airmail -> I would not bother personally for such a difference with registered parcel
if package between 2000g and 2500g, 63.75AU$
I weighted it and I had about 1700g but with box weight and bubbles wrap maybe it will go over.

Trex with spares and box for thoses who asked: well the box is quite heavy, If I put the rex in the box with the spares , one esc one motor,.. we are looking at about 5kg which would be around 107AU$ shipment. Without the box I didn't weight yet but it would be probably half the price.

To be honest, for those in US I would simply take the rex and buy a new box in US
