Is this a good deal on a Trex 450 kit?

A local guy is selling his Trek 450. Here's the info he's given me. It's a Trex 450 and includes all servos, brushless motor and esc, and futaba GY240 gyro. Also comes with some extra parts. According to him it just needs a receiver to fly. He says he bought it as a kit from "Alien", not sure what that means. Here's the picture he sent me. He wants $200 for the kit- is that a fair deal?

Thanks!

If you already have a transmitter and receiver it's a pretty good deal, if it hasn't been crashed. The Trex 450X version came out in 2006 or 2007, can't remember exactly.
So, it is an older version and parts may be a little harder to find.

A few year's ago, this would have been a good deal.
Trex's were over 200.00, and that was with a motor and esc.
The gyro was 104.00 . BUT , now with all the clones out, and motors and esc's dirt cheap from china, you can do much better !!
It's worth about 125.00 . and that's because of the gyro, the best part of the deal .
