Things to consider when buying used gear? Can't Post

Hello everyone,

I plan on buying my own gear (used) for the first time during this off-season. I was wondering if anyone had any tips when doing so...

What do I have to consider when buying used gear. Is it better to buy complete systems or to buy separately and get a rigger to assemble it? What has to be done once I have the rig to get it ready to fly?

Thanks in advance for all the help!Smile

COLOR! The most important thing is that the gear be color coordinated!
