If someone was trying to make a buck on this plane then the thing to do would be to sit on it for a year and then sell it. The windrider Hurricane is apparently going away as well.
BTW I did not assume "free shipping". Thats what the guy said in the post.
Yesterday there was 1 dealer selling BNF for 150 with FREE shipping.
I paid a few sheckles more from Atalanta Hobby but very close to same.
Heck of a deal, I was looking for PNP for a spare but got BNF instead.
Free enterprise syatem works, if a guy makes a few bucks and we still get a good deal I am fine with that. Great time to be in hobby IMHO.
