yeah sorry guys forgot to mention that bit, and you only see the 50% off in the cart.

Actually, how about I change the thread title to "shops offering christmas sales" . The idea being if you see a shop with a good christmas RC sale on, throw it up.


Windrider is offering free freight on a fair portion of his models.

Brought one of their EP Cessna Scale Balsa Wood built up thingies (1030mm wing span) several months ago - stll trying to get my hands on the recomended motor - Turborix D22836 rear mounting unit.
Every time I see them available and order the damned thing, they run out of stock before getting to my order.
Contacted them about it and 'Herman' said they will hold my order until these motors come into stock again then ship a couple off to me quick smart.

I've been buying helis, LiPo's and other bits and pieces from them for several years without any problems at all.
Until a little while ago they had a great range of heli parts like canopies and other goodies, plus their LiPo battery packs, used to ship them for FREE

So far apart from waiting for the motor, they have been exceptional good to deal with.
Had one new servo turn out to be a dud - emailed them about it, no problem at all, they just replaced it straight away - no waiting or 'please explain further', send photos, etc.

Only thing you have to watch for, they sometimes send an email to confirm your order prior to sending it off to you.
If you don't get that email and respond to it - your order doesn't go anywhere.
Then you - - and wait. Been there - done that.

depends what you want in a wing. You should always have a wing ready to go, so I recently went for a scorpion because they are faster, and Glen delivered it to Manilla for me.....Besides, he gave me a 10% "wanker discount" ..........And he gets a little violent when he know you bought another brand wing JOKING!


Flip, Yeah I have bought from them a few times and they are good. I used to have one of their glass foxes, it flies (flew) great, and anyone who slopes knows how good their little speedo is.

Surely you could get a Hobby king turnigy motor for the cessna? I have a few that come with a reverse mounting kit and adaptor. I haven't even thought about motor combos for the Pitts yet but it'll prob be a 10 buck turnigy. I should be able to get this in the air all up including a battery for just over 100 bucks!

Ah, I was wondering that. The bat used to be about 50 bucks. Just thinking aloud here, but could be also more a case of a weak $US.??
He does this free freight thing a lot, and up until this time, his prices have always stayed the same. That's why I bought one of his foxes a while back.
