sad to hear a dedicated flight sim fan have health problems and can no longer enjoy his hobby.

Regarding your question then i like to suggest that you make a small youtube video about the equipment your housband have, or maybe some photos and then share it with us.
( i could see in the bottom of your text there was some info about hardware, but not sure if that is everything or if he maybe have other things that you might want to sell as well ).

Then we can try to identify it and tell you the names of the various products and maybe even give you some advice about sales price.


( maybe someone might even be interested in buying something ).
sincerely peder.


tip..: on facebook in the right side of the screen there are something named "marketplace" it could be a good place to try to sell things for the less cheap things.. regarding the more expensive things, then you might have to think about ebay to sell gobally since some things might be so expensive only very few people buy such things. But lets see your photos/videos and maybe we can help :-)

Very sorry to hear about your husband, my thoughts and prayers will be with the both of you...

Donating to a museum sounds like a beautiful option, I hadn't thought of that myself.

If you decide to sell everything though, I would suggest the following:


- Make a good and complete list of everything including: product name, manufacturer name, date of purchase, price of purchase etc. It may be


- Take good photo's, ask for help if necessary.


- Research or ask around for the present value of all items.


Although I understand it will not be on the top of favourite things to do right now (to say the least), but it would be helpful if your husband could help you with the above as much as possible, as some things can be complicated to figure out, especially with older equipment.


If you want to, you may also look into the possibilities and limitations of selling stuff abroad.



Best wishes from the Netherlands.

Hi. Very sorry to hear about that frightful diagnosis.
I think there has been quite a lot of sound advice going on here. Maybe it is a good idea to get together with one or two people who are living reasonably close to you.

I'm sure there are a lot of more important things going on as well, but one piece of advice I have is, maybe when you look through all the hardware to decide if there are one or two pieces you'd want to keep, even if your husband will not use it anymore. It's not always the new, big, shiny and expensive pieces that one ends up having a connection with.

I´m very sorry about that diagnosis. I can not even imagine what you both are going through at the Moment. I wish you all the power and strength to go through this, to support your husband.

If you´re not quite familar with Computer, Internet and such things so you can also ask in your neighbourhood whether this things will find a new owner.

I lost a cousin to brain cancer. Such an insidious disease.

I can only add to the other sentiments that if you need anything in the way of help or advice, I am here.

I really don't need any of the hardware but I would be willing to finance a local transaction so that you can avoid the cost, and significant hassle, of shipping the hardware. If any of you local Arizona guys want to help work this out then PM me.
