Whoooooah ... wonder why it's SOLD OUT ?!?!

I am another that if they retract I would be hesitant to order from them again. I have had nothing but good prices and helis come from BOB, so I hope they stay the course!

No problem ... I knew it was a killer deal when I stumbled across it and had to share the find with the other "heli addicts". I've been thinking of a 4-ch heli too, so everything clicked.

I wonder if BOB just did a super low price initially to see how buyers would react ... obviously putting it at $27 was like throwing bait in a pool of piranhas ... LOL.

Maybe they had to raise the price to $86 to recoup some losses at $27.

Yes, but it's the second mouse that gets the cheese.

Wouldn't have been a bad move to buy out there entire stock and sell for double probably.

My guess is that it was a price mistake based on the fact that they are going for so much more on ebay and the fact that they up the price themselves. The only question is whether they honor the ones sold this morning or send out cancellations.

This heli looks (and sounds) like it has a sliding swash plate. You can buy an Esky Lama V4 for $89.00.

@Hayabusa, I was just using your quote to bring attention and make sense of my post

Now that the HQ is at $86 I'm sure the sales rate on BOB has gone down to near zero. At $24 their computers where probably smoking.
