South Sydney RC group


Hello, Ive only recently come in contact with these nice bunch of fellas thanks to my mate Rob.
We fly most Saturday and Sunday mornings out at Yarra Bay tucked in behind Botany Cemetery.
We fly mostly Electrics and welcome anything RC into the Group.

Ive started this thread for several reasons.. One for the group to post group buys or discount codes from Hobbyking and other suppliers.

The other is share our pics vids and stories

Thanks for that but the logged in platnum member listed price is $129. When i added it to my cart it dropped to $99 hence this post.. normally platnum prices are only a little bit cheaper than listed when logged in.
Im just posting that a $30 win is a good win for us.

Just re-read your post... this is the first time ive seen that much of a discount..
I suppose after 60odd orders i was due for a win haha.
