I do not think there is a catch at all, the motor/gb set listed was not included even at the $99 price. It is an upgrade recomendation. I am not sure if the original came with a standard 280/gb combo but if it did, it still will be included. I bought a DVIII a month or so ago for $29 off the clearance page. They also listed the upgraded system recomendation. Powerdrive 350 I think. It did come with an included 280/gb/prop (the ad did not mention it)even though Hobby Lobby recomends the hotter setup. Great deal for $29 (for the DVIII that is)

In the $99.00 days it came with a speed280, Horst style 4:1 GB. I bet it still does. If you want to fly SLOW use the included system with 8 cells. They sent me a replacement Speed 300, 5:1 GB and a 9x6 APC prop. Flies good now. A speed 300 will fit in the included GB (after a little sanding and pushing) but pulls a lot of amps.

Am I the only one with a suspicious mind?
Pup is reduced from $99 to $39.00
Good so far.
Now follow the link to the Pup's own page, scroll down to the accessories needed area.
So - why is the motor/gearbox listed down there for $45.40 ?
That's a total of $84.50 for the kit and the motor/'box. Okay, maybe I am wrong here, but I'd be inclined to ask. Without a motor, it's an big "plastic" display model.
If it looks too good to be true ...

While its true that it is not as good a deal as the Bleriot III or some others that they have posted, some of us may already HAVE the power system for it!
It's kinda like the new home I just bought for my AF625G...
How about that $10 for Oracover? It's really Ultracote under the hood you know...
