What is the deal? What is the issue?

Hey, I think someone's already figured out how to know when there's a deal currently running. Not sure exactly how they did it (I doubt they just manually watch for it)... but when you go to http://rcsearch.info/hobbyking/buddy and scroll down you'll see a box on the left that shows the last one and when it ended. Presumably it would show the "current" one when there is one. I've used that site a LOT and always missed that, probably because it looks like an ad.

Channel 2 glitches real bad and is not usable. Search rcg for details.

So there is this facebook group called hobbyking fans. The owner of that group figured out how to get alerts for free to your email.
So go to https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=...bykingfreebies and subscribe and under "my membership", select "send me email updates"... So far I have gotten 1 alert and it was for the cub. Seems like it works flawlessly

My dream last night )

I had a dream yesterday. That Hobbyking cancelled the free item (freebie) action! ..but ran a contest instead:

New rules said: "Take all stuff you bought from HK, fix it around a big garbage can. Most huge and good-looking designs are winners. First 100 winners will get $1000 to their bonus points"
It was plenty symbolical: So many things has been bought to get freebies, that i am not sure there will be use for all of them. Many freebies have been received, i am not sure there will be good use for all of them.
That is why there was a garbage can and "the best use" of all of the parts. And thats why the freebie action was cancelled by the Hobbyking

Nevermind. That was just my dream.. long time with no freebie..

PS.: 100 * 1000$.. The Hobbyking is generous indeed!

I dunno... I thought the same thing until I looked at the freebie history that you can see on rcsearch. Some pretty good items were given away at one point or another!

They will most probably fire the freebie machine again around Christmas, like last year.

I got booted off HK Forum so I told some of my club & friends to stop buying stuff there.

(Which seems to have been ignored, as my neighbour just bought $400 of stuff from Hobby King yesterday - damned traitor - but it was a nice he plane decided on - that 4 winged thing - double Bi-Plane!? - He'll crash it for sure though. Wing span too short for comfort)

So now maybe they are going broke can't afford do freebies anymore!! - LOL

Just screwing around, I'll still buy things there, perhaps like HK, I'm just too broke right now.
If a freebie pops up, I'll jump on it, unless it's totally lame.

Back to bed now Bill, don't forget to take your blue pill.
