Well, let us know if you get your money back. I was scared I missed out on something sweet last night but turns out i just avoided the scam by having second thoughts about buying yet another toy.

I bought into the scam too, but I managed to cancel my payment in time.

I ended up going with this instead:

Same heli, except this seller is legit.

Shouldn't we be looking for the 3 trim pots type transmitter instead of one? Seems like they are harder to find now.

yes i was kind of bummed out when it turned to be a scam, just about to order the 2nd one at that price and then i found out listing and seller was gone but this heli can be had at anytime from gigxon.com for $41.01 shipped, will just have to keep an eye out when they move some inventory on ebay at a lower price cause at that price there is so many other choices.

Hello all,

This is my 1st time I post on here. I have been watching this thread and found some good deals based on your info. Now it's time for me to hunt and share. I found this deal and thought it's great...I hope.

http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm...olesalers.html

I placed an order today and would like to share this with you all.

Do you have any experience with Aliexpress? Do they have any scams like ebay? My 1st experience with them since Dec. I placed some orders with them since Xmas but have not receive any order yet. I think they are on the way and might take a little longer from China than from HK.

Oh, if I happen to break any rules, please advise. I didn't see this seller have any rating yet in 6 mo. but the rule said it's for ebay...not sure if this applied.

Also, pls excuse my English...

hmm - final checkout doesn't give the cheap option I just noticed that today - hopefully it'll be applicable in time...

SITREP for Sub $20 3 CHannels & Sub $40 4CHannels

Situation Report (toy helis deals,OK, first off, a bit of business/financial news, Retail numbers are rolling in for this 2010 holiday season with a pleasant surprise, that retail sales for this holiday season surpassed the estimates and actually rose 5.5% over last season, where the estimates were 3.3%.


http://cnybj.com/Channels/Technology...2FDefault.aspx


For deal shoppers, that may not be good news, as if the retailers have a strong holiday season, they would not be inclined to offer additional discounts going forward into the immediate future. Strong demand and sales usually means retailers will hold the line on current pricing or even increase prices, I did a quick scan today of a number of retailers and vendors known to offer discounted toy helis in the past on this first business day of the new year, and found no sub $20 3 Channel or sub $40 channel deals. I'm guessing they all had fairly strong holiday sales.
