Different BNF colors are available from this seller. The red one I've seen cheaper (at $21) elsewhere (but still on Aliexpress).

Thanks for the links everybody. I'll probably try aliexpress again (even though I said negative things a few posts back). So far it seems they are protecting their customers. Same with focalprice. I guess we will see what condition mine comes to me in (of course that is more to do with the store itself than aliexpress). It seems these are becoming more readily available in China, I wonder why more U.S. sources don't carry them, even if it meant a little higher price, $30 bnf, $50 RTF, you would think they would sell pretty good if they fly as good as people have said, even at those prices with U.S. availability.

I would be careful there, its not clear, after the pic saying the 2 v911, tx, 4 batteries etc, it says:

From the link below:
http://www.aliexpress.com/fm-store/1...ain-blade.html


Then that product says:

Free shipping -WL V911 -- New package with 2 BNF + 4 batteries + 1 transmitter + 1 charger + 1 main blade + 1 manual
which is $69.99

Yep you are right! They are very tricky. I was shopping for parts when I clicked on a link that said "upgrate" and listed the 2 helis as their newest package but they must have posted the wrong link. My mistake.

I'm fed up with Aliexpress. The only order I have been successful in completing was for my V911 thru Firecabbage. I placed another order with them for spare parts and they closed it. I also placed an order thru Aliexpress with Hobby King for an alloy 260a swash that wasnt listed on their site and again that was closed. This is rediculous!

I'll be traveling to HK in the Summer, any Hong Kongers out there know of a good place to buy v911's (or other heli's) cheap? (Locally, in person, in case I haven't made that clear.) Thanks.

Perhaps there is a genuine problem with your credit and/or card?

+1 for that!! - Have you checked your credit report recently to see if there is anything on there that doesnt look familiar to you??
what if someone else is using your card without you knowing it (somebody that may be sitting in a totally different corner of the globe??)

I have an 800 credit score and my card hasn't shown any mysterious activity. The problem may be that I bank thru a credit union and Aliexpress is having difficulty verifying my account. I actually have two separate accounts and generally transfer money into one for online purchases only just in case the account is compromised. After my order was cancelled this last time, I said the heck with it and used my main account with the same result. So I believe it has something to do with my bank. Hobby King sent me their paypal address and we just went that route... great customer service! I do find it funny though that Aliexpress accepted payments from me 3 weeks ago but now they think my card is counterfeit...

I'd also like to add that Aliexpress has charged me for one of the items that they closed the transaction on. Previously the transaction was simply in pending status but it went thru on one of the orders and the vendor wasn't cleared to ship.

Up until recently, I thought Aliexpress doesn't charge till the vendor ships. But after monitoring my credit card activities more closely, I realize they do charge before the order is shipped; however, the do promptly reverse the charge once the shipping deadline has passed and order still hasn't shipped.
