Wow! That is a seriously scary advert. Not just the price - but the thought of it flying around in a complete beginner's hands! Or rather not flying around IYKWIM!

Also a bit wierd the call it large scale when it's got a wingspan of only 1600mm! Not exactly mahusive!

Good thing I didn't - mind he has 3 so plenty of decision time. I thought it came with a top of the range tx too at that price, then read the description....

Spot on Tim.
 
It's always curious when pictures of the full size aircraft are used to illustrate eBay ads and the video is of a smaller model. The words 'caveat emptor' certainly spring to mind.

Looking at his other aircraft for sale I'd guess that he's stuck an extra 1 in the price by accident, making it a slightly more realistic £174.99 - all his other similar models are in the sub-£200 bracket.

I love the words "Large Scale" & "Massive" when applied to a 1600mm wingspan.....
 
I guess this makes my 1m models merely "Large" in comparison.....my 65" Wot5 must be bordering on full size then.......

Some posts deleted here at the poster's request - as he put the post in the wrong place. Obviously I won't name him so as to save any possible embarrassment.
