Best price on a Permax 450 Turbo motor?

Who still sells the Permax 450 turbo motors? What is the best price? I have had a hard time finding one of these for a decent price ($20-$25).

Uk price is 12.95

So $20 looks achievable

However its up at $27 on Multiplex USA...

Hmm.

http://www.eflightpower.com/powertrain.htm has $22

I think you are unlikley to get much better than that. $25-$30 seems more reasonable, bearing in mind shipping costs..

it did look too good to be true really.

It costs me about $50 in diesel to visit my local hobbystore. Then they don't have the stock

I tend to mail order, but only small things till I get some feel for trustworthiness.

*sigh* I am tryng to buy some flooring as well. None in the country till January..

My LHS's don't seem to know what a good battery, motor or ESC is. They don't seem to care enough to research the latest and greatest products. I talked with one of the so called "electric authorities" at one LHS about batteries and he said " batteries are all the same, we don't carry heavy or expensive batteries because we see no point". They have recently discovered the Zagi though only about 2 years behind everyone else.

This is why I have to shop online for almost everything . I really need to start a new hobby store in my area.
