I emailed BOB to ask if they would get the orange or red ... all I got was their canned email response that they will "check with the factory" and get back with me in 1-2 business days.


Yeah, that's why I hasn't ordered another one yet, was hoping other colors would show up but then, yellow may be the only color BOB plans to carry, or maybe the only color they will have at this price point. They may get other colors eventually, but if the yellow sells real well and sells out, other ones they stock I doubt they will sell them with such a low price.

Could always do a custom paint job on the canopy since it's the only think with color. Some mentioned putting a S107 canopy on it ... might work too.

Did you notice that the No. 809 canopy looks like it has separate "glass" ... unlike the S107 which has painted on "glass". Look closely at the seam around the glass edge on the attached photo (blown up).

Yeah, only the canopy of the 809 is yellow, it would be an easy task to change that to Red, green, purple, blue, or whatever. hmmmmmmmmmmm! Maybe need to pull the trigger again on another one.

Dude, we have talked about this offer in a topic, and it seems to be too good to be real... so be careful!

(only the shipping cost would be more of an empty box from AUS!)

Well there you go DT. It looks like 2011 is already shaping up to where we'll continue to see prices dropping on these small models. You got that heli for what many 3 channels still sell for, and it's a mode 2 transmitter to top it off!

Yep, it's starting off an exciting new year! I was looking at these Falcons for awhile but at the normal Ebay price of around $43 shipped was just a bit too much to take a chance on, but like you said, at a price for what many 3 channels sell for, I felt it was time to satisfy my curiosity, only $26.64 is worth the small risk. If it isn't what they advertised, I will just submit a claim with Paypal, but it looks like exactly what all the other vendors are selling, but at a much lower price, so we will see.




Checked my PayPal account, the actual currency conversion of $25.99 AUD came out to $27.25 USD. Just wanted to add that small correction, still a great deal!

Maybe I should try that with the BOB Z005 non-PCB LiPo thing - since BOB advertised it as having a PCB and it didn't. Not to get off topic, but how does one do that with PayPal? DT, you can PM me if you'd like.

Price of the No. 809 also just went up to $22.90 (from $17.00) - she's out of the <$20 group how.

I think the price increases as the "digg" number increases. Seems the price went up right when the digg # = 400.

no problem doubletap i ordered two of these at this price! maybe i should change the rules to address 4 channel. But certainly this would be the kind of deal that should be included in this thread.

Maybe i should change the rules to be less than $20 for 2-3 channel. Less than $40 for 4 channel?

DT and DWholler, please let me know if you end up getting this heli. A 4 ch at that price is quite appealing - if you get it.
