It`s a lure to sell more stuff along on the same order. Same principle applies at the grocery store where they sell items at cost or below to make you walk in. Chances are you`ll make all your grocery there instead of in the store across the street.

Well I opted for one. Never had a store bought shock flyer. I thought shipping was a little high at $8.00. Wanted a new catalog anyway.

I put it in both forums to see what people think about the matter and since its a foamie and a 3d plane. Is that against the rules?

I'm glad I did, i got more responses in the other thread.

Well I really dont have the money for the typical shop til you drop but hey for that price I'd at least have the plane. shipping at 8bones is a bit high though.

I am not familiar with the E-flite outrunners, but I think the motor and lipo you mentionned would be fine. Besides AXI's, which are very popular on shockies, the GP Rimfire, GP 8 amp ESC with 8x3.8 or 9x3.8 and Etec 3s 700mah is a good combo .
