Dunno re Sad Faces. I just copy and pasted it here .

Good news ... well maybe.

Looking at the HC 2.32M FOX at $115 which is PNP ( I have One )
ref. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...n_Fly_v2_.html

I have to wonder about the pricing of this model,
unless the communicated price INCLUDED shipping.

This model has a much smaller, lighter fuselage and the wings
have the servos sticking out of the TOP in a rather unsophisticated way.

So, Again I have to question the price.
$100 + S&H would be more in line. IMHO
$163 If that included shipping still seems a bit unrealistic
considering the unproven nature of this particular model.

OK OK , it's an introductory price but aren't those usually Lower ?

So my take from the dealers standpoint is that for large shippments they
use EMS , which is pretty expensive.
With any qty discount the base price + the shipping make the cost to the dealer
about what ANYONE can purchase a single model with non ems type shipping.
I went thru this with flyfly and dropped the venture.
The Chinese MUST develop a SHARED Container mechanism if they want
keep prices LOW and get more products into the market.

Sorry I tend to rant on these issues.
