Don't buy Falcon or Lanerret!

Don't get the Falcon. They are the same as the Lanerret, and both models have stationary (dummy) trim controls. I wouldn't buy one just out of principle. I don't like the idea of some Chinese fat cat using fake components in their pictures to deceive me and get away with my money.

Buy the 5888.

No stopping you from buying that 5888 now!

surprising it shipped from her, mine ran out of time today so now the clock was reset for another 7 days and i have an option to cancel the order, so i may just keep it for another day or so see if it will ship even though as of yesterday that store of hers doesn't list any items at all

I just have a bad feeling about the nancy Qin FENG sunning Tan orders. I thought when the timer ran out it would auto refund to paypal?

Ya i'm so glad I steered clear of those two sellers/stores, The whole Aussie ebay thing sobered me up about deals being too good to be true.

thats what i thought after double reported so on the 9098 but it looks like that listing was removed before the expiry whereas on the 8913 not so, in general i cant figure out whats going on on aliex with nancy, my order is still technically in the system but no shipment yet so i'll probably just wait till someone reports that they received and take it from there

I know it's not a 3 or 4 channel, but I thought I'd share. Kohls has the little 2 channel Walcopters for $10.50 if you order with your Kohls charge card and use the codes below for 30% off and free shipping. The kicker is that you have to use a Kohls card to use the codes.

Stolen from slickdeals:

kohls Remote-Controlled Helicopter $10.50 original $49.99 A/30% coupon+F/S with KOHLS charge+code
Propel ToysŪ Stealth Flyer Remote-Controlled Helicopter
$15.00-30%=$10.50 original $49.99

30% off with coupon code LOVE2SAVE30
+ free shipping for Kohl's card holders with code LUVMVC

Got my 2 Protocol Thunderjets from Lord & Taylor, I should have waited for more info before I ordered but I was impatient.

Didn't really want non-gyro models because these were gonna be gifts. I will say that it's fun to fly a non-gyro model, pyros are very fast and it really zips around.

The quality is good and even for non-gyro the final cost of under $16 shipped each, is pretty good.

If xheli hadn't cancelled free shipping I would have grabbed a couple S107 pcbs but I guess I'll wait..
