AP platform for sale...maybe

After getting my Mikrokopter setup, I will be using it for my AP hobby and am now thinking of selling my heli. It isn't anything special except that it has an altitude hold module on it that as far as I know, still hasn't been released. I was one of the beta testers for this module and it has worked great in the 2 months I have been trying it out. Here is the website for it and the thread.

Here are the rest of the heli specs. and retail prices.

Alt Hold 400
ap 2000i 144.99
IR sensor for AP2000i 42.99
HK500gt heli 67.95
CC HV85 169.99
CC BEC 10 21.99
Turnegy Typhoon 1800kv motor 24.95
HC MG930 servos x 4 @ 13.99
Telebee Gyro GR302-AD 24.95
430mm HC CF blades 12.99

$941.81 (not including shipping and a couple other upgrades listed below)

Align main shaft and tail shaft with thrust bearings. Align tail drive gear assembly, Align canopy (custom painted) and Align landing skids.

Notes: Very small ding on boom from blade strike (don't forget to fly in idle up!) Broken bottom tab on frame where canopy clips (don't forget to fly in idle up!) but canopy still attaches fine.

I am trying to decide if it is worth selling this as a package or parting out the AP2000i and Alt Hold and just keeping the heli as a normal flier. I know some look down on the HK/clone stuff but am not sure how "AP'rs" feel about it.

I know that this could go in the for sale section but I don't think it would fit in any one category entirely.

So what do you guys think. Would this be a desirable AP package at say $850 plus shipping or should I consider parting it out?
