I could probably cite even more reasons to not drive a car or eat foods with sugar in them, but discretionary caution and common sense goes a long way in solving most of those issues (Facebook included).

Meh...enough with the vitriol.
BH is trying to make a buck. They're just a company like any other. They have always done well by me...4 orders so far.

I cant help but like Pete and his enthusiasm...which makes me think that there are decent folks and genuine RC nuts working there.

Sounds like a misplaced rant against social media more than a problem with Banana Hobby. Those who prefer a more Luddite lifestyle will simply have to deal with their self-inflicted consequences. It's your choice, but social media is nearly a must these days for businesses, so don't blame others for moving forward during this new age of communication.

You don't need R/C airplanes, either. So the two kinda go hand-in-hand. Choices we make!

And you don't NEED coupons for R/C airplanes. So you're all set. Nothing to complain about.

Wow. You can really start to get a sense of why a business like Banana Hobby would just stop trying to cater to certain kinds of customers after a while.

So Subaru just dropped the price of the outgoing STi model by a big chunk of change....but undoubtedly, that deal will go away when the new model shows up. Would you also sarcastically call that "convenient?" Sales are a way to clear out old stock or drive up sales...if the deals and coupons are not needed, they will stop...and it's no mystery why the deal wouldnt apply to a hot new model.



Yes, I'm waiting/hoping for a coupon too...but mosty because I'm on a really tight budget at the moment and that possible 15% ($30ish dollars on the plane I want) is the difference in being able to justify it or not justify it....not because I think the regular price is a rip off.
