Hi,

I bought a Mini Contender a few days ago and used code 014F1 for another $10 off on a $50.00 order.

I just ordered another Mini Contender this moring using code 014P1 for another $10.00 off on a $50.00 order.

I picked up today's order of a Mini Contender for $70.15 shipped.

Yeah me!

Mickydee

P.S. If you want a Mini Contender, do it now. That price might go down a little more, but more than likely it will go back up to $99.99 very soon. Don't get greedy!

This morning $67.69 maybe down to $65 but they have to be getting close. Unless they are going to discontinue them (like Horizon did the PT-19).

They just introduced it in July. I doubt it's going to be terminated.

Don't know for sure, but with Tower and it's history with all wood arfs over the past decade it appears that around $60 appears to be the magical.. "We are not going to order any more shipping containers of this product from China".

The brief history off the top of my head....
Goldberg - Chipmunk ( just reintroduced), Husky, Laser 400, Pitts ,Tiger 400, Eagle 400.

If that's the case I am buying two for back up. This is one bird I want to have in my hangar for a long time.

That is why I purchase four a few days ago through two different order. With free shipping and $20 off each order, I figure $65 is my "break even " point. I fly at a small field and I was about ready to scratch build a Min-E-Taurus, until this went on sale. Go figure, two pattern ships with their "big brothers" from the same late 60's era.

Got one on its way for $67.69 and used one of the $10 off $50 or more codes from mickydee! ... Basicly, $67.70 shipped. Had the .60 sized glow versions back in the 70's and it was fun back then....

Thanks for the heads up Guys!!

I jumped on it at that price. I've seen this happen before where they drop the price each day and it keeps going until the next day and it goes back up to full price. I decided to take the gamble and buy one now.

Fentonflyers,

Did you use the suggested electronic setup for your Contender?

Thanks
