Dang that's a good deal. No rating and he has 10 of them! Must be a scam

EDIT: He has 7 100% feedback as a buyer only. So old that it won't show unless you go to his profile. Sounds legit

Paypal and ebay would have your back should it be fake... considering just throwing $200 at it and seeing what happens...

If it was only one radio in question, I would guess it to be a scam. With ten of them involved, I would guess it is legit. If PayPal got stuck for $2000.00 on one item, they would likely go after the guy hard, probably resulting in jail time. The guy probably is savvy enough to realize that. If I didn't have a 10C NIB waiting for my old 7C to die, I would be sorely tempted. PayPal would take care of me if it turned out to be a scam.

Looks like there are 4 or 5 people in different locations selling different packages (acro+rx, heli+rx, acro only, etc) at the same price. Definitely seems sketchy considering almost all the sellers have no feedback and that is their only item.

All 5 sellers listed within an hour of each other, and all list 10 for sale. This one shows 7 sold in the last 24 hours:

Santa must have really been busy, or he kept dropping cases of 14SG's out the back of his sleigh as he flew across country!!

If something's too good to be true, it probably is a scam. But this is really tempting with buyer protection and all. I don't even need a new radio, but damn, a 14 sg for $200 is insane.

If it is legit, I'm sure we will see some 14sg's popping up in the classifieds soon.

Hello Just so you guys know pay pal will not have your back if he can show delivery in your town not your address UNLESS its over 250.00 then he must have signature confirmation if he does not then they will rule for you now to sweeten things up for him I sent him a message and offered 250 for the radio and must require signature confirmation from me that way pay pal will for sure side with me if anything goes wrong if it is a scam he already knows the game and will not respond lol I will report back and let you know wish me luck LOL hehehe !

anything 249.99 and under the seller only has to prove tracking number and delivery confirmation through post office but heres the kicker it does not have to be your address so the scammer can ship a cd to your neighbor and that's good enough for pay pal check into this if you are skeptical I have been there and done this fortunately for me the item was 255.00 and he did not require signature so I won but had it been 249.99 he would have won That's straight from PAY PAL so be careful guys READ READ READ and then ask a real person too!
