Made mine tonight got it all linked up to my DX8 and dual rates set. First try of the secondary programming had me worried, rudder did not work. Reset to the original programming and did the secondary programming and it works great.

must be a fluke, or some very generous hobbytowns, mine was $139.99 at HTUSA.

if it like what they do in my industry, the store was billed for the sabre at a lower promo cost and the anylink was billed regular price so it doesnt look like the sales rep or company isnt giving away excess product for free. and a lot of Point of sale systems are setup at a fixed % markup. notice the anylink having a price tag on it, mine wasnt even priced, only the sabre. Combine that situation and an unknowing employee makes for one happy customer lol.

I was refering to the wholesale side, from the distributer to the dealer. Esentially the companies salesreps are noly allowed x amount of promo/free replacement items to give out without getting in trouble.
One of my companies i deal with does this all the time which makes it a total pain to keep up with actual item cost in our POS system. for instance a 3 item combo( buy item A+B get C free) was $100, normally $150. instead of charging item A @$100, B@ $25 and C@$0 they take item B and C and price them at 12.50 each or item A @ $75 item B at $25 and item C at $25.

At checkout i can on my end in the storefront I change the price to zero for the customer

make sense now?

Pure speculation on my part, but based of previous experience in the retail industry.

Flight Times

Got mine yesterday. Sure is a beauty. But I was really disappointed to read in the manual that flight time is limited to 3 minutes with the stock battery. 3 minutes???

Correctamundo! Even the 68mm 3-cell jets I have (the ones some folks complain about being slow) provide me 3 minuets of shorts-bunching excitement.

The provide battery will maintain flight for 4minutes at WOT. We recommend allowing a minute for landing set up, missed approaches, flying monkeys, ect.

Sorry, I ment past the 20% rule for lipos.. being dumped like almost all the way down and possibly causing the lipo to swell..
I'm going to fly 2 1/2min and see how much Mah I put back in my packs, just to be on the safe side of things..
Thanks
