Bargains!

Wow $1000 for a 310! Even a complete wreck would have to be worth more than that, just an intact panel, cowl or even a seat or piece if interior trim would have to come close.

Back on Topic

The DC's mentioned above (page 1) are roughly $200. They are ok, but not great for anything over an hour or two, as pilot's we get used to headsets, but passengers do seem to struggle a bit.
