Good question! Is that in US dollars, UK pounds, euros, yen, or roubles?
and, if selling to me, as little as possible!
It's an electric 3 channel, and looks to have all gear, excluding the battery.
I'd guess 40-50 pounds.

Depending on what the 'smaller' model is, you may find that the larger one is easier to fly. Those old vintage models almost flew themselves.

If you click on this link to the BMFA, (British Model Flying Association), then use the 'Select County' for the county you live in, it will come back with a list of local clubs.
If you take it to a club you may get a better price if more than one member is interested in it.

with all that dihedral in the wings, and being its a high wing, you will find flying this a pussycat.

Smaller planes are generally "harder" to fly than larger ones.
larger planes don't react as quick to wind gusts, fly smoother, and are generally easier to see due to the size.

keep that vintage plane, fix it up and go fly her!

Ok thanks for the comments and thanks for not treating me like a newbie but i don't know the smaller one is this

It has bigger wheels than in this picture though but i think the plane is front nose heavy as when i tried to fly it i through it as i dont think it would take off ,then it just went front nose heavy down the battery was fully charged also what do you think f this one ?

Are you going to sell it with the engine and electronics or like an ARF? With everything, i would say $400-500. Without, maybe $200-300

The rudder picture is the last one ? Thanks also well i now have a third plane from the same friend as he was going to sell it but i told him that you on here told me that bigger planes are easier to fly to learn with than smaller ones so i will post pictures of that in a bit to see what you think of this friend just wants to see them fly as he has not saw them fly.

So here are some photos of the plane that has just been given to me what do you think would this be better to learn to fly with ? This plane does work as I have just tested it also very powerful but feels nose heavy

The aircraft should balance about a third of the way back from the start of the wing. Slightly further forward is better than slightly far back
If you're anywhere near Wigan, let me know as if you do decide to sell the yellow one I would love it! :P
If you are nearby and need any more help, just pm me and i'll see what I can do
