    What do you guys think it seems that the gimbal alone new sells for about 500, controller for around 250, battery 130, plus the electronics and shell anyone have any opinions?

    Parting out anything usually gets you more money.
    I think there is good demand for P3 stuff.

    Yes but you have to realize you're not going to get new prices regardless of the condition of your parts. For example nobody's going to give you $130 for the battery or $250 for the controller. Also consider your time.

    I have been getting $200 for an RC and $400 for the body. All used not sure what a used camera brings.

    Time is what you need to factor. Consider the time on emails/phone calls/correspondence. Consider waiting times for pick up. Consider the time to pack and find a post office. Consider the risk of holding the goods - demand for a controller is minimal vs a body or battery. Consider opportunity lost from other revenue...
