I'm going to be doing some electronics work on my plane and think a good o-scope would be helpful.

I used one in the Navy when repairing MDFs but those where $20k units that I have no need for.

Any tips/specs for a decent used o-scope for electronics (Arduino/megasquirt) work? Under $150-ish used preferred.

Ebay. Really good deals on used ones that have huge capabilities. If I need one, I borrow one from a friend who did that. Mine is from an uncle and was made in the 50s. Only good for Outer Limits title rolls.

I love my Tektronix 475-A Dual Trace, with a built in Digital Multimeter. Government surplus, I would hate to pay what the gov paid for it.
My first one was a kit I built back in the 60's.
This is the one I have. Huge amount of probes, etc, and manuals came with it.

The best bang for the buck was the Rigol DS1052 a 50Mhz that could be flashed with the 100Mhz firmware.
Don't know what they go for used...
