You guys' weren't kidding! I have wanted to order an F16 or squall yesterday, but figured I can't spend money. However, I can't believe my eyes! The squall is 20 bucks and the F16 is 15 and that's with the motor/fan/esc for both. I ordered three planes of each, and with shipping included, the price was still under $150 for 6 planes. Thank you for the heads up!!!

They must have found their error...the phase 3 f-16 with motor/fan/esc is now listed at $99. As of 2 minutes ago, the squall was still listed at $20 for the complete kit...purchased it. We'll see what happens.

I'm scared that I'm gonna get an email that says it was an error!
Lol! I was thinking the same thing. I actually did get an error message when I first tried to order, and figured it was too good to be true, but it went through when I tried again. I already got the confirmation email, so I think they have to honor the price now.

Ah mah, I just refreshed the page and the F16 and squall are both $99 again. I hope they honor my price for the jets I just bought at the sale price. I have an email confirmation stating the price, payment, etc. Thy won't just send me 6 darn foam kits, will they .

I would think they would have to honor that price, especially if they sent us all email order confirmations. We all just got incredibly lucky! The current $99 deal is still an excellent price!

I agree thrash. I wouldn't have bought the jets if they were at a regular price. Hobbypeople are normally great to deal with, so let's hope they follow through.

So what's everyone's analysis of what happened with those prices? Do you guys think they did it for a limited time to generate some quick sales and create some buzz or do you think one of their salespeople had a major brainfart?

Thats a good question. If they wanted to create buzz, then they certainly did. I'm guessing it was a brainfart though. They must have thought it was strange that they suddenly got dozens of orders for the same plane in just a few minutes! Can you imagine the looks on their faces? Probably something like this ....and then this
