A thought that's all

  • Being a pensioner, and a long time one too, money, we have found doesn't grow on trees. Which brings me to this thought and would like to see what other members think. (I should mention the younger brigade too where mum and dad can struggle with feeding their whanau (children) let alone buying expensive hardware for a sim.


    So could you start a 2nd hand folder within. Companies whether new or those who have been around for sometime, are always improving their hardware, in this case the VR. Some like to keep up with the latest buying it fairly quickly, others wait longer. What happens to those old VR glasses. My thought was perhaps they could be advertised on this forum that they have one for sale.


    As I mentioned, just a thought. Any comments?

  • Are you talking about the ability to sell second hand gear online here? Over at Avsim, which is a flight sim community forum, they have a section where people can do just that.
