I was thinking about grabbin' one up too, but then at 27 oz., I don't think the hollow airframe and fuse will take much abuse. Very tempting nonetheless.

What is the "Crash Sale"? That to me reads that it is slightly damaged or missing parts or something.

What is CRASH?
CRASH is a one item, one day only sale. It includes deeply discounted merchandise, new products offered first on the CRASH page, and special promotions. It does not mean we are selling crashed airplanes or damaged products.

When does CRASH occur?
Look for a new CRASH item each Wednesday. It is important to act fast. Once the CRASH item sells out, the link to purchase it will be removed. Web orders are time-stamped. We will post the time the promotion ended. If your web order for the CRASH item is placed after this time, we will contact you and let you know the order cannot be filled. A new CRASH item will not appear again until the following Wednesday, so ACT FAST. Do not hold a CRASH item in your shopping cart. You will lose the CRASH sale price. The sale may last 10 minutes or 10 hours.

Why sell only one CRASH item per day?
To feature a single item or to have a special promotion for our customers. Go to www.hobby-lobby.com for everything else. Quantities are limited.

The CRASH promo is over, can I still get one?
Probably, but not at the CRASH price. Once we sell the pre-determined number or sell out of the product, the price will change to our regular retail price. Once the pre-determined number of a CRASH item is hit, the promotion is over. We may or may not put the same item on the CRASH page in the future. The CRASH price is not retro active.

Will Hobby Lobby still have other sales?
Yes, in our Bargain Hangar, just like always. But the CRASH item is a specially featured item with a deeper than normal discount.

Small brushless and lipos would result in a lower weight methinks.

I'm going with a small Himaxx outrunner brushless, and smaller lipo on this one. Keeping the weight down. Just can't go wrong with this price!
The only thing I'm not sure about here is HL put this sale on today, being a Tuesday, and yet the crash sales are supposed to be only on wednesdays?

I just picked up one too. I couldn't beleive my good fortune!! and at only $40!! I fell in love with this plane about the time they discontinued it a couple of years ago. One of the guys at my field flew on and it's a beautiful airplane. The foam is smooth as glass and it looks like it was covered with high quality covering. It also flies like a dream. The only negative is that it's hollow foam and very hard/impossible to fix if you really crash it up good. I'm planning on using a Himax 2025 with a 9 By 7.5 APC E prop - should haul arse.

Here are two very thorough reviews I've already read. Can someone find video on this plane?
