You would have gotten $300 for it 6-8 months ago, but not now.

In Sept 2006, one sold on fleebay for $461, maybe the high water mark for a Taurus kit in excellent condition. Not sure if one has broken the $300 mark since then. There may (or may not) be a buyer willing and able to do it.

One reason the kits don't get high prices now is the economy is bad and alot of guys are short on funds or don't have a job at all.

Good luck!

Top Flite Taurus


Here is a history of prices

212.00 2/1/2010
275.00 12/10/2009
291.00 12/6/2009
340.00 4/5/2010
404.00 8/30/2009
447.00 11/10/2009
461.00 12/1/2009
504.00 8/17/2009

As you can see the price fluctuates, and there are still plenty of buyers. The current trend is that prices are slightly down.
Condition is also a factor, and if anything has been started or assembled that can drastically affect the price.
$300 is still cheap and a very good price, regardless of the economy.

Let's see a picture of your kit.

Taurus ailerons...


I bought a Taurus that was started and never finished at a swap meet. The plane has retracts on the wing but not the nose wheel???. The plane never had ailerons installed nor were they supplied. Can someone give me the dimensions(length and width for the ailerons? What size engine will fly this thing? I;m thinking .61 is going to make it a rocketship. I was thinking a ST.51. Thoughts.....

Re :Taurus


Yes the economy....might also have to do with the fact that the Taurus and Orion are being kitted once again as short or complete kits for half that cost....

And the new kits have fresh, strong balsa ! That old stuff can be pretty pulpy .
