Hobby King now stocking the Sukhoi SU-26 BNF!


Just saw this on their website, i hope they start stocking the 4-site or J3 when it comes out!

It's only slightly cheaper than retail though if you factor in postage.

Also noticed they've changed the stock/buy/price/weight bar. Looks a bit better now.

Edit: It's 15 dollars more expensive from HK warehouse. They are also stocking the Vapour and Ember 2.

Oh god don't tell me that, i don't wanna overdraft this month. If it goes lower it would be worth it for the electronics and pushrods etc!

I know, that's the only issue with HK. Being in the UK, i have the exchange rate on my side (even as weak as it is). But i don't think i could find a new one that cheap anywhere else. I'm just waiting until they go into the flash sale!

That's a big problem of HC. I shipped a 5lb helicopter using USPS, and I only paid a little more than $10 to CA. They charge too much on shipping even within the US.

My LHS price turned out to be less than that after taxes. Actually, that's good for HH and LHS, but it's bad for us, buyer.

Ok, i only save about 5gbp which is disappointing, but still Ģ5 i can spend elsewhere. Untill they reduce the price or get better posting costs, i think i may wait to get a decent cheap second hand one. But as it is winter i was thinking about and mCX. Now if they stocked one of them, i would definitely buy one!

Keep the money in your country if possible! Even if you end up paying 5pound more at least you can get what you want straight away and return it if it's faulty etc...

BTW, they have the Blade MSR their for i think $111 upon checkout

when are they going to get the UM p51 BNF for 80 bones? How cheap can they go? I love that the price lowers as you shopping cart the item!

Perhaps i'm cynical or naive but, there's nothing to stop the UK place buying these and then marking them up by Ģ5. Then, it would be worth it for them to use their checkout, discounts for sizeable orders etc. The big money might well be going to HK anyway.

I thought HK just set up a warehouse in the UK and got a cut of the profit made on the original price. Not put another dob up on top. In the case of some products, the USA warehouse is cheaper than the normal one!
