Flight 4 of 5 Raw Vid, no track. Droning of the AC Units and the quiet little Motrolfly...

Short field departure and landing. Lots of WOT and Tumbles and Snaps. A low HAKE pass got too slow and dicey.

3DHS 46 YAK-55 STOL-N-SPEED (4 min 32 sec)

I'm confused at how the seller would have any risk.

Secure the money prior to shipping. Take pictures like Steve said. Ship it insured like Steve said.

If he claims damage then insurance will cover it. Package tracking would eliminate any possiblity of claiming it never showed up and if it didn't, then insurance would cover it.

Am I missing something?

I'm just going to try to sell it local first because it'll be easier. If I can't sell it, ill ship.

guy gets plane, guy crashes it on first flight, guy claims you sent it with a defective esc/servo/whatever, guy files claim with paypal, or even easier, he call AE and does a chargeback, you are out cash and the plane will be shipped back to you in pieces

I think it'll sell sooner than that! Or maybe I should say, "I hope"

+1 PayPal will be on the buyers side and even if you win the dispute or receive the insurance check it just isn't worth the hassle in my book.

Now if it were some one in this thread I might take the risk but for a stranger...nah.
