Spiderman ECO8 Jet Ranger for sale !

Well somebody on the forum asked about buying my Spiderman painted Ikarus ECO8 set up.
It got me to thinking of what I had in it...
I think if somebody were willing to offer me a good price. Keeping in mind that I would sell it complete even the nihm and nicad batteries. I think it would do a lot better on lipos . So the shipping would run about $60, and I would cover the rest if the offer is good enough.
Trying to remember what all I have in it so here goes.
Custom Gaui woody blades
Red aluminum head
Red aluminum small arms on head
Red aluminum blade grip arms
Aluminum swash guide plate
Red aluminum swash plate
Blue aluminum frame support
Blue aluminum upper bearing support
Red aluminum frame
Carbon Fiber tail boom
Red aluminum tail pitch slider yellow large modified paddles
Swift flybar modification
Ikarus Jet Ranger Fuselage
Custom Spiderman paint job ?
T-Rex skids
"Z"20a 1500 motor
T-Rex flybar controller
Custom LED lights
Castle CC45 ESC
AR7000 receiver
Hitec 85BB servos x3
Red Polo digital tail servo
Futaba GY401 Gyro
Blue aluminum tail blade holders
Carbon fiber frames

At last total I had over $1500 tied up in it !

I flew about a few weeks ago, and it still flew good. Below are some of the latest pictures of it. Yes that is dust on the body. I am really having a lot of fun with my new Swift ! The black circles at the top rear were some exhaust ports I had on and knocked of carrying it outside... Duh, never did fix that. Also the last time I could not get the front landing light to remotely turn on/off. Not sure what is wrong with that ?
So basically it will be ready to fly just add a 11.1 v lipo or the 10 cell and a receiver/battery and you are ready to go...
If you use a larger lipo, the leds will have to be run off of a 11.1v source to avoid burning them out !

The 4 bottom pictures were taken before going to 2.4 hrz

If you sell it, then you will have to change your user name also.
