Would you buy a spark with a cracked arm repaired with super glue?

It comes with the controller and they’re asking $289. How much would you pay?

No, other things could be wrong also. Why the hassle, unless you know the workings real well and don't mind playing around with it. That's my 2 cents.

A glued arm will most likely have a nasty vibrations and will be a hazzard in the skies. I would shy away from it.

They really should be asking less. If they were asking 150 for it then I would take it and try to fix it better, but you could get a brand new spark for close to that amount, and then get a used remote, or get a non crashed used combo. 50 more dollars is much better than getting a potentially bricked drone. Save your time and money by spending a little bit more.

$289 is not a good price for a damaged Spark.

You can buy a refurbished Spark (in like new condition) from DJI here on eBay for $279. Refurbished drones from DJI also come with the same 1-year warranty as a new Spark. See more details here.

The video may not look stable due to the cracked arm, and super glue is also not a permanent fix. Changes in heat weaken it over time. I’d ask him $150 and if he says no, let it be.

No. The integral damage to this arm is permanent.
Take MSinger's advice.

Nope. I'd steer clear if anything that's second hand WITH: cracks, rough scratches/blemishes or a shady history/owner. Stop looking at the dollars and spend extra from someone who has a decent reputation and will be transparent with you in the sale. Preferably, you hope the drone has only ONE previous owner, too.
