The thing with ebay (and I use it a lot for purchases) is to do research. If you want an item check the best new price inc postage first. Way up the sellers feed back and sales, is the discription of the item fair to what you see in the pictures and a gut feeling does it sound right!! if yes set your maximun price to purchase it. If it's "buy now" is it a good price based on your research. Also some say "free postage" but after checking out a new item price it's odvious postage is included hence it's sometimes more costly on ebay. Also don't forget ebay charge to put an item up so that cost is included in the sale price. I was looking at a FMS Pilatus £175 on ebay from a high street model shop direct to the same model shop it was £161 inc postage. So always research and check prices! Also be very wary of prices to good to be true, they usually are!

I think it IS new and advertised by a trade seller. I could be wrong, of course. Both my early Taranis transmitters came with the aluminium carrying case and charger as standard and were a lot cheaper than new ones now. I understood that the case is an extra now.

Sorry, but new means unopened and unused. This guy (not a trade seller by looks of it) admits to putting new firmware on it, plus where is the warranty? The ad states no returns. New ones now come with a soft case and a charger for £179, or £170 for the tx and charger only.

No returns doesn't mean anything. EBay are very good at refunding buyers, some sellers say too good.

It is below the psychological $1,000 mark.

You do have to pay for quality, at least, that is what some say. Plus we are looking at precision German technology. Above all, the box looks really good.

This seller is selling copies of Phoenix :**LINK**?

I have just sent him a message asking if he also sends the Phoenix dongle with the disc, as the sim won't work without it.

What piqued my interest was a "refurbished" Spektrum bind plug for £2.99. What would that be?

Odd - he's also offering a cleaner looking one (albeit without the rubber insert) for the same price. Strange thing - he lives in Slough, quotes £4.50 for P&P but won't post to the UK .

However THIS one is a definitely legit bargain (but to be honest, I can see the bidding spiralling up like a FAI duration model on steroids)

I think the word for that is hard used It looks even worse than my flyaway Depron Eurofighter after the 'finder' had ripped out all the goodies before discarding the rest.
