Most dealers here only carry the mainstream planes for maximum profit without any troubles. You should see the look on their face when you ask them for a plane not in store (like the FMS mustang, any GWS plane, things like DLG gliders...)

There's a few LHS where I don't go anymore (rather not fly than let them earn a cent of my money) because of this. They simply tell you they won't order such planes because it's too much work. There's also a shop that will feel no shame in selling a starting RC flyer a 60A brushed ESC (which costs 4 times the 20A) to fly an easystar stock. They just lie to people about it being absolutely necessary since other escs will overheat and cause a crash. Good thing I was there at the moment and told him plain and simple what he told wasn't true. I saved that boy nearly $200 by taking him to another shop.

Some shop owners are just bastards.
