Good Luck with it Weedy. I used R_C_Trader (remove the underlined spaces) to sell some smaller items (Engines mostly) a few months ago - had no luck at all with any of the (located in WA) 100cc or larger airframes so I ended up chucking most of them on the bonfire a couple of weeks ago (Including some 50% stuff). Never got any money by doing that but at least I now have more room in my shed.

The going price for stuff is whatever someone is prepared to pay - don't expect that figure to be very high.

Yep - In my case, my sons gave up flying in pursuit of other "sports", I was no longer interested in IMAC and the closest official field to where I was living got overrun with "affordable" jets. I had a lot of large airframes taking up space that I could use for other things.

I think the hobby has changed (as it always does) to smaller airframes that are cheaper to lose, FPV setups (especially multirotors) and the now "much more affordable" turbines. Give it a few years and it will change again.
