Thanks guys ..

OH No!! Not back into the closet! You want them to go to good homes, to people who will love and take care of them! Selling them on E bay will give you national exposure and usually Top Dollar. But,you’ll have to, as previously mentioned, catalog them post pictures , prepare them for shipment and let E bay take a 30% cut off the selling price. If you were just “given” these engines, your probably not attached to them and won’t mind only getting 70% of their value, with a zero cost you do end up with 100% profit.

Otherwise, you can Free of Charge, list them for sale, here On this web page, you can do a Bid by private message, or set price and know your dealing with fellow modelers who will appreciate not having to overpay to compensate for e bays cut of the sale.

If having these engines is really causing you grief and heartache, I will at my expense have you pack and ship them all to me. I then will endure the pain and suffering of having them displayed in my engine collection. You Don’t need to loose any sleep over doing the right thing.  PM me for my shipping address. Thank you.


eBay and PayPal only take 13%, still a lot but not 30%

It has been a long time since I sold anything on E bay, the reason I stopped was they were making more money than I was. Maybe they lowered their rates? I’ll let my estate find out after I’m gone.....

Ok guys sorry to have wasted your time . I been told by at least two of your guys to only sell at at package deal . Between the two they came up with 125.00 per motor. I’m asking for 87.50 per motor , And if my Collection sells to a Member of this forum . I will personally give back 4% and ask no questions .

Now I have only pulled out the 4 Cox’s motors & the aluminum prop . The rest of the collection is in tack.!! Again guys thanks for helping.

Are you wanting more money? Or a good home?

If you desire more money then a package deal is not the way to go. Individual engines will always sell for more. Actually a package deal is really best for the buyer in just about every deal I have seen.

If you just want to see them go to a good home, cherished and not wanting to deal with selling engines individually then a package deal makes sense.

Good luck in whatever you decide to do,

Ron

Things got testy on Facebook because his engines were bigger than .049, members started complaining because his engines were too large for the forum.
Nothing to do with his integrity as a seller. Some members liked his photos and encouraged him to post more.

Hmm, something sent him over the edge. I found him polite and our responses helpful and measured. Obviously Sum Ting Won.

I can't help admiring his collection though. Hope they all find proper homes.

Im always stepping into things back wards. But Im 61 and its to late for me. But I did come here for information as well as going to face book. I posted 3 pics on the .049 forum. I fly but only electric .I had no idea that .049 was a motor size. I posted 3 pic's over there and then asked if could post more . My cell blew up with request for more .... So I started posting. It took me two days to get them all posted. Then i started getting trashed for posting motors bigger then ,049. Where were you Mark Boesen . One when i was posting @ two when I was being trashed. Im not going to apologize to you or your forum. But I will apologize to this forum & the the guys that have help me . If I could stay long enough with out getting kick out. I would like for you guys to know me & my plans for the motors..

getback I can appreciate you not wanting to buy from me because no one could confirm who I was. But I did not come here to sell my motors. But I did get caught up with all the offers. Looks like alot of you guys collect motors . I collect planes, Old Baseball cards, Old wagons, Old hot rods. And now I collect old motors.

Guys Sorry for getting off on the wrong leg here . And getback I have no problem sending you the motors before payment. But dont ask me question about these motors that I dont understand. If their not what you want just send them back. K.

No nothing wrong with them . You just have to be a pilot... But with a gasser not only do you have to be a pilot but a mechanic also. I watch you guys at the field. Although I admire yalls talents... I pass @ going to stick with electrics for now. At least untill I get my grandson on his own.. Just cheaper that way..This Site Rocks!

Glow vs electric. It’s a topic that gets debated to death. I appreciate both, but this guy will always be a glow junkie. Although I am pretty handy with IC engines of all types so that helps.

To each their own, you should try a glow engine though. If you ever want to give it a go I will happily provide you with an engine free of charge.

My only concern with electric is that it is causing a severe lack of production in glow fuel! Sad

Glow vs  Electric . Last year I went to visit with my grandson. He wouldn’t take his eyes off the tv long enough to even look at me. I put his b/t in the truck & we went to the  local hobby shop . We started off with electric because of what they call safe. A plane one can build and fly. When we can get to a  level of flying without safe . My goal is to build a balsa wood plane  with him and go with Glow.The only thing I can debait Glow vs electric is that we were flying the next morning. I had to start him with something. After my  experience with the motors I was given and learning about free flight and u wire. I’m going to take him back in time . We’re going to build a free flight plane. And move up from there. And start him his own collection of  Cox engines . The past few days with you guys has been Great. Thanks again guys. Y’all have a great place here , hope to be a part of all this soon.

Ronnie.
Glad we got things sorted out.  Sorry if some here acted a little suspiciously.  That happens a bit here with new guys.  The motives of some newbies are questionable and I guess the regulars feel a little protective of our friendly little group.
While I don't share your love of electrics, I acknowledge that anyone wanting to do some serious flying is pretty much forced to go that way by public opinion.  I know I may be half deaf but I (unlike the general public and authorities) still like the noise an IC engine makes, and the smell.  Well, sort of. My sense of smell is pretty much shot as well.  Oh, why do the things we love end up kiling us?
Anyway, I'm guessing that you'll end up getting hitched on this forum like the rest of us and I look forward to the report of when you finally do give an IC engine a shot.  Once you're hooked on nitro then we can work on the Diesel thing Laughing

Rod.

It’s all good Rod. I have a friend on this forum that might make me a good deal on one or two of his old motors to get me started in the right direction.
