    Pity to see it leave your hands, but I really like Bullfrog and I'd like to start competing on the live circuit, so I'll place an opening offer. I imagine other people would like to bid too, so do you have a suggested starting price?

    We're talking about a ready to fight machine.
    Just bind your own reciever to the FlySky reciever.

    I just can't send full CO2 bottles with it.

    Perfect. I'll put down £1250 for now, with the possibility of going higher if you get other offers.

    We're going to include the transmitter, making it plug and play.

    Take care tough, Bullfrog is in Belgium, and it's not a Tesla S with autopilot, so transport will have to be discussed.

    Probably sold. P&P is an issue tough.

    Anyone an idea how to transport a heavy from Belgium to the UK without spending a lot of time personaly, or a huge lot of money?

    If you pallet it up and send it that way, usually around £100>£150 but then add about £30>£50 for a pallet. A cardboard topped pallet would be ok just make sure the bot is strapped or screwed down the wooden base. Most company's won't ship batteries, some that do require additional insurance. Quotes may be cheaper if you can fit it onto a 1/2 or 1/4 pallet rather than a full one.

    Just another thought is to see if anyone else on the forum/community can help drive it across, daisy chain.

    https://www.shiply.com is an shipping quote site I've had good experience with where you submit the job and company's bid for the work, it can throw up some good prices and if you get a MIV you may not need to package it all up. But i'm not sure what prices will be internationally as I've only used it domestically.

    Cost me £100 to ship smidsy from the north of scotland to somewhere in england (I forget where). Had a pallet already. Put it on with a ratchet strap and off she went.
