    Will be moving soon and have to downsize, which means dismantling my development lab and getting rid of stuff. You can pick and choose what you want and make me an offer.

    First up: A Parallax Elev-8 (V2) quadcopter, modified with an APM flight controller and GPS. It does not have a telemetry transceiver, but one can be purchased cheaply on Amazon. Otherwise, it has all the capabilities you'd expect in an APM ship, including autonomous flight (upload waypoints using a USB cable connected to your computer running Flight Planner). This comes with a complete set of new spare motors. This is a very stable and reliable aircraft - it was the first quadcopter I built and is in excellent condition! Comes with 2 3S lipo batteries:

    Next Up: Another modified Elev-8 - this one has gone through multiple iterations. In it's latest form it is outfitted with MN3520 T-Motors (brand new); APM flight controller, telemetry, 200 mW video transmitter and a Tarot 2 axis gimbal. I added Tarot landing skids (salvaged from a crashed Tarot hexcopter), because the motors require a 5S lipo and I bought a huge 16000 mAh brick!

    Next: A Tarot 650 Sport Quadcopter. This hasn't been flown as I ran into a number of bugs that I haven't worked out. The landing skids don't retract - the controller is getting power, but when I activate the gear switch on my transmitter, nothing happens. The controller may be defective. I regarded this as a minor problem however and didn't pursue a solution.

    I bought an 8 channel receiver from Spektrum that has a slave for redundancy, but could not get it to work. I ended up pulling a 6 channel receiver from another aircraft and successfully bound it to the transmitter and went through the radio calibration in Mission Planner.

    This aircraft has a Feiyu-Tech three axis gimbal which works, but I cannot get video out. I've tried swapping video transmitters but neither worked - have to try the video transmitters on my other aircraft and see if they work on it.

    This aircraft also is powered with MN3520 T-Motors which are brand new - only ran to verify correct spin direction.

    Next: Video Receiver with dual video receivers built in - on a tripod. And my Spektrum DX-8 transmitter:

    Not shown are miscellaneous stuff - Tarot 4006 620Kv motors (used), a radio shack power supply used to provide power for a Tenergy battery charger. Also two GoPro cameras and GoPro battery charger.

    If interested in any/all hit me up and make an offer!

    are you entirely coming out of the hobby or just selling to buy new gear?

    I haven't decided to completely get out of the hobby, but I wanted to downsize as I prepare for a move to Colorado. I did sell some stuff to a local R/C club - the video monitor, a large tripod stand and a few other odds and ends. The problem with my quads is that they are built using obsolete technology (APM f.c.s for example) - existing RTF quads from DJI have so much more capabilities and features and are far more reliable.

    I have packed up my quads and will take them to Colorado with me. I may even fly them but if I continue in the hobby, I will most likely buy a DJI ship.
