You might want to make a note that Tech Model Products ships free to APO/FPO beyond the 10% discount that they give. Joe over there is a great guy. He even shipped to my hotel in Va (2nd day ground) at the same rates and discount when I was TDY so that I wouldn't have to wait for my T-Rex to get here on the slow boat to Okinawa.

Wow, good on them! I'm going to see what else they have to offer.

Note added. Thanks Sting.

Be sure to check out www.neoplanes.com also. They have offered to send some things over to the guys in Iraq, and may end up with a standard military discount in the near future.

Thanks again to Steve at Neoplanes!

Thanks for the heads up Laine. Post #1 edited.

That's great to hear BTW especially since I just bought a motor from them.

Dont forget that Castle Creations has "military sales" occasionally. 20%-40% off usually a few times a year for the guys/gals in uniform.

Ya gotta LOVE Castle Creations stuff too!!!

Another online store added.

You can also shoot me an email and I will give discounts as well to all our Military. I carry lipo batteries and chargers. It is the least I can do to show my support.
and email me what your looking for and I will set you up with how to proceed


#13 Murocflyer Jun 30, 2008 11:07 AM


Does that count for retired military also?

Thanks for supporting our troops. I'll get post #1 updated shortly.

Hi Frank sure does.

As a matter of fact right now I am actually going to offer 15% off every order for the 4th of July Sale which I have not posted so feel free to pass it on in the other forums and threads if you want I would appreciate it. This offer is for anyone for the week but offer still stands for military at anytime.

In order to do so when checking out in the voucher section type 15 and hit recalculate and bam theres the discount. If you are military please do the same but instead of typing 15 type USA :)

This is not to be used on my items already on my Sale Page as they are already discounted.

Happy 4th of July!
