Black Friday deals (was: Big 5 has a couple planes on Friday)

Full size Storm Launcher - $49. Replacement battery - $19. Estes Air Force One (the one that supposedly doesn't fly so good) - $59.

From 5:55am to 3pm on Friday.

I have a Big 5 literally next door to my office. Guess I'll have to go take a look.

Wow. Most "Big 5" around here don't have any airplanes.
Good deal on the Estes AF1, even if you just want to canibalize it,
or fit it out with upscale gear.

They don't normally have them here either, I think this is another special holiday draw.

OK, this is a problem.

I was planning to work Friday, despite the need to camp out and wait for Target
to open (with the Air Hogs JetScream), but if I'm gonna go to Big Five too, I might
need to take the day off and play.

Plus, I just don't have any place to KEEP any more airplanes!

Not sure if Target is going to have the Jetscream. Sounds like it is definitely at TRU. They open at 5 or something. So I'll swing by there on my way to work. As for Big 5, I can head over there at lunch. I am sure the one here won't be too bad, it's never that busy.
