Value of kyosho t-33 shooting star

I have a untouched kyosho t-33 shooting star still bagged up in box with edf and motor which has been laying around for a while which im thinking of selling to fund other edf projects.

Does anyone know what the going rate is for this discontinued model?

Thanks for your input guys

It looks like a buyers market, some people think it is worth more than others.

It might not be as valuable were you are, some dealers in your area still carry them. It's about 184.00 shipped to USA.

Beef up the Kyosho T-33 w.a hot brushless motor and batteries likewise and you get a magnificent machine. Mine is five years old and God knows how many flights. I like it! Would`nt sell it for money!

Keep it, add a Mega 16/15/2 with 6 cells. It will fly just great.

Easy hand launch, 5 minute flights, mildly aerobatic, inexpensive.

You can't have more fun than this while still wearing clothes.

I have bought two of these planes in the past month.One already built but never flown from R/C groups for the amazingly low price of $100.00 and another from EBAY NIB for $150.00.I've seen these planes go as much as $200.00 NIB on EBAY.I would'nt sell your T-33 to fund other projects,I'd sell other planes to fund your T-33.

I agree, T-33 is a great plane. And prices are all over the map. Budyy just picked up 2 NIB last month. One was $100, but then the next one cost him $175 so there all over the map. But there all good in my book!

I had mine for three months Mf 480,Plettenburg motor loved it but a terminal glitch turned it into polystrene balls from 100 feet.

Keep it and enjoy if not 40 quid is my offer.
