You just need to put a space between "fine" and the "http"

So, in the seller's words, "On the last time of flying I landed it slightly hard and the rotors just tapped the tail boom but still fine as shown in the photo's."

Roughly translates as, "I crashed it, the blades are now only fit for the bin and the tail boom is now banana-shaped and also only fit for the bin..."

But on the plus side, at least he's pointing out the damage rather than trying to hide it!

I don't think he'll get may bids starting at £1,263.24. What puzzles me though is why it's in German when the line for postage says (in translation) 'Dispatch FROM ENGLAND' (and why in Euros)?

Perhaps he thinks there are more affluent collectors in Germany that would be willing to pay a premium for a rare item.

Interesting postscript to his other items. There are sufficient caveats and references to regulations that would put me off dealing with this chap. Not a lot of trust going on there. Perhaps he has got stung before.

Curious, this seller often has engines for sale on ebay. Where does he get them from? Always exotic high performance motors in unused condition. Clearly not a modeller.

I do have some sympathy with him. Whenever I sell large items that are for collection only, someone always asks if it can be posted.

I once sold a very large lawn mower (around 150kg in weight) as collection only, and the buyer was furious that I would not put in on a pallet for them and have it delivered.

Here's some New Year Stats for you.

I have just perused e-bay in the Rc department. I searched for "Kit".

19290 items

192 auction only

125 of those in the UK

That wasn't just aeroplanes either and most of those have start prices over 70% of retail !

Glad I did my buying and stocked up several years ago. teeth 2

While you're waiting for the glue to dry, enjoy some reading from these RC Groups threads.  Some of the comments are worth the reading.

No problem with the seller on this one, but what is it? I have a Waterhouse & Ely Super Fly and I know its not that. There are mumurings in the grey matter of 'Trener' by Bowman's of Ispwich or Galaxy Models, but I can't find anything about it. Has anybody any ideas?

I thought that it might be an MFA Skyhawk but checked my old review and it is NOT that

Another puzzle. An old unnamed 27Mhz? transmitter, receiver and servos. Not really my scene but I know some of you like this sort of stuff (like me and old valve broadcast receivers). I suspect it may be a very nicely made home-build.
