Ya, but we're TRYING to be more careful and follow the rules now, and as I'm sure people will be constantly breaking the rules (whether its on purpose or not) someone needs to govern this thread

No, my Falcon has been shipped, from another vendor, still waiting for my Double Horse 9098 shipping notice from Nancy, she still has 1 day to ship it.

Nancy Qin FENG does not have time to tend auctions, she is on her honeymoon. I put in a cancel request as one item exceeded the order processing time and there is still 2 more days for the auto cancel to kick in. I'll probably have to wait till then because only the seller can cancel an order if requested by the buyer.

Been searching high and low but no deals on sub $20 helis, at least 3 channel ones.

Dudz, just asking, why do/did you choose aliexpress instead of ebay? I think that should be a more dangerous place to get stuffz (due weaker buyers protection etc...)

I dont have any experience with aliexpress thats why I am asking.

(but I feel more safe on ebay, after my 500+ buying...of course you SHOULD be always careful, but comeon, thats just a routine to check the feedbacks to filter and ignoring the bad guyz... )

?

Well, It has even better deals than Ebay... and although heli models such as the solo pro, and falcon 8913 have competitive/nearly identical prices on aliE and Ebay, I've managed to find one or two models that you cannot find on ebay (but not many). TBH though, I'm going to try and keep my AliE buying from a minimum from now on, especially now that I have seen how lucky I have been with all 6 of my AliE transactions going smoothly while others seem to be having issues with certain sellers...

NOTE** I know this does not come close to the $40 mark BUT it looks to be an amazing deal

$107 Walkera 7, YES 7CH 14" helicopter

I didnt do any reasearch beforehand to see if this is really a good deal, But to me it looks really good for $107, can anyone confirm my hunch?

BTW i have experience buying from this e-store before so it IS legit

because we get a euphoric high from being able to acquire something cheaper than going market price, it adds to the excitement sort of like living on the edge

but yes after a downer or two, caution rises until it dissipates again over time and then its back to the same cycle

you should ask that in a walkera thread as that is way above our price and experience level at least for most that frequent this thread for 3 or 4 ch deals
