I didn't see they accepted pay-pal or not... I would be more willing to try if they did, it's much easier and less hassle to file a PP claim then to deal with a Credit Card company and have to possible change your card number if a problem did occur. Whoever takes the plunge let me know cause they're selling a H9 Hellcat for a unbelievable price and this guy could use a new plane in his hangar.

OK, i went thru the whole process to see what would happen, i bought a Spartan for $171. Recieved an email stating to contact them "to get a detail bank account", so i emailed them back asking how to pay. Here's the response:

"Its possible the know the boat toys model that like you want to buy and how many unit ?
we can prepare for your purchase.

For the international customer we just accept 10 units minimum order delivery to your shipping address.

If you still interested want to buy the toys from us, please made the order with minimum order quantity 10 units and order can be different model of toys. and for 25 units total order we ready to give you a discount 15% from total price with free shipping cost and insurance."


So.................10 units minimum, if i can find 9 others it would still be an awesome deal

They emailed me almost the same thing. I'm not bank wiring someone in indonesia 1500.

That business should count out the us. More than likely a scam.
