Leaderhobby sale

I'm in the market for a transmitter with Spektrum DSM2 compatibility, and saw interesting comments about the 9x radio on sale at Hobby King and Leaderhobby. My 1st entry into Leaderhobby and saw super deals! Quickly had a radio, plane and other stuff that added up to +$200. Quess what; the shipping for this is $78 !!! Spend several hours un-successfully manipulating items to get a reasonable $hipping and finally just cancelled everything.
Took a look at the Hobby Lobby Labor Day sale today and clicked out of that. They had a couple planes of interest, but the price for an equipped ARF now buys only the empty shell kit.
Leaderhobby has some eye-catching prices, but their item descriptions are sparce and you may need to go to Hobby King to get more information before clicking the BUY button.

I bought the 9x from leader hobby, paid $22 for shipping but didn't get and didn't expect spektrum compatibility. My bill was $86.
