This seems like a good thread to ask in. If I had a chance to get a new-in-box Acer 6011 with blue Alps for $150 + shipping, is that a good deal? I have no idea, really. I really want a blue Alps board but that's also a lot of money.

ok about the controllers I doubt they are all bad especially if they got time to dry out it is mainly the membranes that would be bad on these, I think for these if eillipse charged like 50c a spring fliper would have been good for an F ext project etc

Can't risk beamsprings in a single engine plane. We will need two engines and a larger cargo hold.
yes we need more engineers
