For the pittance that you get these days Jaycee,

Hang on to your gear to keep your mind active through your ill health

More than half my club enjoy our hobby due to ill health, including myself

This hobby keeps your spirits up

Thanks guys for your replies unfortunately I haven’t been able to fly for three years my health problems are serious, terminal! my children have no idea of the worth of my Equipment and I’m concerned that they will eventually just be thrown away. I would rather somebody had it that is still enjoying flying and could make good use of it, so please spread the word so that I get the best price possible thank you .

Jaycee - very sorry to hear of your health problems - the others are right in that having something in the way of modelling to do can be relaxing and help take your mind off of other things. For stuff you really do want to sell, I always reckon it's worth trying the item on the BMFA site first - more likely to hit the target audience and NO selling fees! Good luck whatever you decide to do.

Hi Jaycee

Sorry to hear of the health problems.

FWIW the job lot of lipos (and crikey that is a job lot) will sell for much much more on ebay if you are willing to post using a courier - I would think even with a large postage charge (£15? I've never posted batteries) the listing would get a lot more interested bidders.

Apologies if I'm telling you something you already know.

Hi JayCee. I believe I am the one who bought your Propeak power supply off ebay. Was so sorry to hear you have given up this great hobby due to ill health. Rest assured your Propeak power supply has gone to a good home, I have been looking for one of these for a while to pair up with one I already have, so now I can charge all of my lipos at the same time. Not seen any more in any model shop just lately, so yours was just the job. Thanks for the quick delivery, and it certainly was very well padded and packaged.

My best wishes and regards to you JayCee.
