    Unfortunately, I crashed my Inspire. Between my regular job and young kids, I don't have time to do repairs. I am looking to sell the aircraft body to somebody who could use the spare parts. It will not include batteries, controller, or camera/gimbal.

    The damaged parts are:
    -Both motor mount poles
    -The shock absorbers
    -The left hand mount to the worm gear
    -Both camera quick connect harnesses
    -The wire harness that connects to the tail LED

    The motors start up and there is no visible damage to the internal components. The Inspire turns on and the gps functions normally. The body is also in good shape. I will include the X3 gimbal mounting plate and new rubber connectors, and will ship it in its factory case.

    Thanks for your interest.
    Joe

    I assume it did not crash in water?

    Correct, it caught a tree branch and landed at the base of the tree.

    Wow! Looks like the main screw jack (Transformation jack) is toast. Usually happens from a direct drop onto the landing gear from the crash. If the main collar of the screw jack is damaged, then it is for sure just a parts machine. Good luck with the sell.

    The main screw jack or worm gear operates just fine.

    Well, that's good. Why is the bird being parted out rather than repair?

    I have a pretty busy job and two young children, so I don't have the time to commit to repairs.

    Understood! I can only offer $500. for as is! Not to insult you, but T600 parts are getting easier to get!
    What do you think? a better offer? I have a buy back program in place with my company.

    I appreciate the offer, but I know the value of the parts adds up to well more than that. I can't sell it for that value.
