R/C Planes and such, online discount/ price updates

Trying to come up with one place where I can post my regular price checks.

Latest updates always available at http://www.microplanepilot.com

Important note about Amazon:
Items sold and shipped by Amazon can, at times, be eligible for free "Super Saver" shipping or cheap 2 day air upgrades. I am now distinguishing between items sold by Amazon (simply noted as "from Amazon", and thus eligible for the shipping offers), and those from 3rd parties (noted as "Amazon 3rd Party", and not eligible for the shipping offers). Hopefully this will help.

All prices updated at 2008-11-25, 18:25:20 MST.

This list only represents items that are on sale (even if just $0.01 less than list). For a complete list of all items we track, including those at or above list price, please visit http://www.microplanepilot.com.

Only 3 left, and it isn't discounted in any way (or it isn't obvious to me anyhow).


You guys think this thread is useful?

This plane has only been rumored and rarely seen before now.
I don't know what it "normally" sells for, but I'm pretty sure it's more
than $20...

Ha, well OK, how about the Air Rage "Razor" for $25 at KB?
I don't know what it lists for, but it must be more than $25.

This is a nice little plane, by the way, flies at least as well as an aero ace.

OK, I picked up the Estes "4161 Sky Rangers" plane for $19.99 @ Radio Shack - aka "Wicked" or "Flying Wing" or "Twin Engined Red One" etc. (The number on mine is not 4161 either.) Normally lists for $29.99. No flying yet. Pictures to come. Like this:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/attac...mentid=1160695
Maybe not on sale anymore or where you are?
http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...entPage=family

Also, the Estes 4151 Sky Squadron (red low wing single engine in front) is also on sale (I'm picking up my 2nd soon) for $14.99.:
http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...entPage=family

Also, I saw the VAMP - looks cool but at $39.99 & no specials, I'll just put it on the list for anyone who doesn't know what to get me for Christmas.

AND it comes with FREE SHIPPING! I just ordered one in 49mhz. $24.99 total.

Normally it is 40.00 w/out free shipping. I could not resist, this is one I've been wanting to try for some time.

Thanks for the Heads Up coloradoskier and Msnyder!

Added the 4151. Didn't add the other two because they were not on sale on the RS site.
