V911 price/dealers/deals/tracking thread

THIS THREAD IS FOR ALL ISSUES YOU RUN INTO BEFORE YOU GET YOUR V911 HELICOPTER
Hey guys,

The original V911 thread has been overrun with posts regarding deals/prices and tracking details of individual users... so here's a thread about exactly those topics!
If you find a good deal, we would love to hear about it HERE! Same goes to questions regarding dealers, shipping and other pricing related issues.

If you would like to talk about the technical stuff, to find out about upgrades, or if you have problems with the V911, please refer to the V911 Review and FAQ thread found here:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1548027

Hope you find the heli of your dreams! If you decide to get the V911, then welcome to the family!

Have fun!

Cheapest deal found so far: 24 dollars if you let the seller know that you saw it on the RCG forum!

Oops, they just increased prices by $1.
Option 4, heli body only is now $25. RTF is now $44, up from $43. Still a great deal. Get 'em now before they jack up the price some more!

The more the merrier... I found myself buying them as gifts for close friends on their birthdays. Force them into the hobby...y'know :P

a dollar discount is better than nothing!

It is almost 40 days since my v911 is shipped from banggood. I tried contacting their CS staff and Aaron but with no response. What should I do O_O?

The problem is China post...

IMPORTANT: China Post Air Parcel deliveries might result in delays and lost parcels.

I found this on a chinese sellers shipping quote. (AliExpress).... Free shipping

Better choice is Hongkong Post Air Parcel, but it will jack the price at least 20$ more....

Did they give you a tracking number?

Banggood has delayed shipping on one of my orders, but once they ship the product, there's nothing wrong with whatever carrier they choose. Tracking numbers are important. Parts orders don't get tracking numbers, though.

Click this and bookmark it. It's unusual that the "date and time" field is not filled in. At this time, banggood is to blame.

I ordered my banggood V911 on Jan 30. I received it on Feb 18 (19 days).
I ordered parts from bangood on Feb 10. They said they shipped it on Feb 21. They gave no tracking number on the parts order.
