Recycle Bin

What is the Recycle Bin?

We often get RC equipment that comes in for upgrades or is no longer economical to repair, however, that does not mean that some of the parts are not still in good enough condition to be reused.

Before listing a part in the Recycle Bin, the parts is stripped down, cleaned, re-lubricated (if required), new bearings installed (if required) and then re-assembled back into 100% working condition.

To help you understand how we rate Recycle Bin parts, we use this rating scale:

  • 10/10 - This item is still in its original packaging, never been used and could technically be sold as new.  It probably came in with an item that the owner wanted fixed, but was not used.
  • 9/10 - This item is in very good condition without any scratches etc.  It has probably never been used, but does not have the original packaging.
  • 8/10 - This item is still in excellent condition, but has been used before.  It has however been completely stripped down and reassembled with all wearing parts (bearings etc.) replaced.
  • 7/10  - This item is still in good condition (maybe a scratch or two), but has been used before.  It has however been completely stripped down and reassembled with all wearing parts (bearings etc.) replaced.
  •  6/10 - This item is still in fair condition (some visible scratches etc.), but has been used before.  It has however been completely stripped down and reassembled with all wearing parts (bearings etc.) replaced.
  • 5/10 - This item is not 100% re-usable, but certain parts might be useful to other modellers.  e.g. Servo is not working but gears can be removed to use in another servo of same model. 
  • 4/10 - This will not be recycled here.  We don't want to waste your time and have recycled parts in this condition in an environmentally friendly manner.
