Miniscule percentages of price reduction doesn't do anything for me. If these shops want to appeal to people, let them eliminate shipping fees.

This shop mentioned here charges too much for shipping and I stopped buying from them. I bought some plastic parts for a heli and paid $9 shipping for $8 worth of parts.

I know shops get better shipping rates than I do, yet I can ship a complete heli from Oregon to NJ for less than $13.

It is simple: raise prices 5% across the board to cover s&h; that way, people will feel like they are getting a good deal.

I look at shipping costs whenever I shop before pulling the trigger on an online purchase. I also support my LHS first and foremost, even though it costs me ~ $5 to get there and back.

This may or may not be worth two cents.

Helidirect has free shipping on $100 or more. Heck wish I could get away with a crash these days and have the parts bill under $100. Nice find on the 10% I'm fixing a 700 that went in full speed tail first and needs a full rebuild - this helps! Thank You,

Steve
