It would be interesting to see the data. I wonder if there is an easy way to pull all the for sale threads into excel and then pivot the data to see what manufacture planes are sold the most during which time frame. I think a casual observation won't really tell you anything but true number crunching would be a fun.

Of course that won't tell you how many of which brand was sold from the source and I doubt you would ever get those stats.

I imagine that there are more being bought and sold for larger planes. There is also more good options out there from PA and EF.

Without knowing how many of the respective brands are in end customer hands, that there seems to be more 3DHS planes in the classified could just be an indication that more people have them, or that that 3DHS pilots don't crash as much, 3DHS pilots don't love their planes as much as other brands, and other reasonable explanations. Also, people get caught up in the frenzy of garage sales, and buy planes they don't want, and try to resell it so they can buy the planes they really want.

it just goes in cycles. right now there may be a few more 3dhs planes, and in a few months there will be a ton of EF planes (there have been for the past few months IIRC), and then PA, and then everything else will have its turn. there is nothing to read into, it just happens

+1

Just the random crazy cycle of the RCG classifieds. Don't listen to some silly BS about why as there is no reason.

This is my guess also and when you consider that they sell a bunch of them to start off with more will show up used. This hobby is addicting.
