Normally $439 plus shipping, $350 and no shipping. I'd call that a great deal!

When I got my velox a couple months ago I had enough points to get $50 gift cert and they had the 10% sale at the time so I got mine for $368.30 shipped brand new with nothing needing repair!

Ok, don't rub it in, I'll probably regret not hanging on to it, but I had already spent $400 at the GS and wife wants new kitchen counters

Not to rain on Park_Aviators post flying the 737 sim, every time this year we host a large charity event at our place. We usually bring in Tour Golfers but last year we had our neighbor Lockheed bring in an F35 simulator. As I am an instrument rated fixed wing (civilian flying) and rotor rating (military flying) so they let me take off and land of a carrier as well as engage and destroy a vessel at sea. By popular demand they are back and this time the are setting up a F22 Raptor. I am scheduled at 5 to fly it.

Did the same thing on the 74. Right now I think I about 20 points short of the $50 mark...and I need that!! Isn't it a point per buck? Not sure.

The yellow is really awesome looking to. Just the right mix of red./yellow. I saw one last weekend. Tempting. I wonder how much different they fly vs. the 74, 72, and 71.
