Backlight DX7 with quad bearing gimbals. Considering selling...

Like title says, I am considering selling my old DX7 radio (I purchased a new JR 11X) but I don't know what a good price for a backlight DX7 quadbearing would be worth. It works perfectly and its just sitting in the shelf collecting dust since I upgraded to the 11X.

The gimbals are on double ball bearings and it has an EL sheet for backlight. (I've had this radio backlit for over 2 years now) It used to be run on a 2S lipo but it is back now on its original NiCd pack. I still have the original box with the instructions.

This is the radio in question: (The two blue LEDs are gone but the rest is the same)
The MB-Commander unit. (0 min 46 sec)

This radio has a backlight on the display and the gimbals are upgraded with quad ball bearings. This is not your standard DX7 radio.

I believe this is the price of the complete radio electronics package, i.e.: Tx, Rx, 4 servos.

If you buy on line you can pay a good deal less:

I've seen that the backlight kits for DX7/DX7SE run for ~60+ bucks. Not including the time and the "balls" required to install it. I backlit my radio b/c I fly at night most of the time so I needed to see what I was changing.

The gimbal upgrade is easier to do than the backlight, its a bit time consuming but the benefits are well worth it too. My DX7 gimbals feel just as good as my new 11X gimbals feel.
