Blimey, I thought it was unbelievable before I saw the Hobby King link. Now I think it's almost criminal. Says he's sold 26 of them though!

Yeah. I've sent them a message asking if this is just a posting error. If they don't reply, we should go national. Some poor sods are getting ripped off, and I DO NOT want that sort of thing associated with our hobby.

I would get in touch with E Bay, but it would be quicker to clean the Augean Stables

He SAYS he has sold 26. Just goes to prove that all of the Monkeys ain't in the zoo!

I saw that. Going through their catalogue, most prices seem OK, though the odd one sticks out - a 27mz tranny for £166, for instance

If you look at the history of what he has sold the go for £59.99. They put them up at the higher price when they have run out to save ending the add.

To be fair, Michael, I think you may be right. There's lots of stuff on their site at reasonable prices, like spares, batteries, receivers etc for WLToys stuff such as the V911 helis.

I just wish they'd remove the advert rather than employ the 'set a ridiculous price' technique to stop people buying. Some ignorant (to RC model prices) people may be fooled and cough up. I wonder if they'd return the money?

I wonder if this chap'd like to buy my midcentury biplane too.

Then he'd have a matching pair.

I think you can blame eBay for that. I'm not certain of the exact details, but I'm told eBay's fees are lower if you place an ad and then edit it (make the price ridiculously high) when you're out of stock and then re-edit the price when you get more stock again.

Looks like a Flair kit with a four stroke up front. Worth about half the price if you are lucky.

Genuine e-bay "attic find". I'm fact, it's still in the attic ! laugh

Obviously this one came from the "Dove from above". laugh

Has anyone noticed it's that time of year again. E-bay prices have suddenly shot up. Wonder if they're linked to HK ? wink

I'm always suspicious if they can't be bothered to get them out of storage and photograph them properly. I'm not exactly sure what he is selling.

I like the 'Vic' Reeves sixth scale Spitfire parts. If they're all there then I wouldn't think £50 was out of the way. Not sure if there's a drawing, though. Funny that the seller didn't actually read the name on the packs.

No collection - too embarrassed to take money from someone in person?

Well, if you don't ask you dont get...and he probably won't

As someone I know recently said, if a fool is big enought to ask an exhorbitangt price there may be another willing to pay it.
