Just kidding, of course. Hey, relax everybody, I am a long time very loyal customer of Hobby Lobby, and they used to have my aerial photos on the (sniff) Wingo page back in the days when Wingo was still the greatest flying RC airplane.

But I have to say that, while I'm as happy about sales as the next guy, I find this "crash" sale kinda dumb. Let's start with the name. Every single person I mention this to has the same response -- "Oh, they're selling damaged merchandise." Yes, I know that they explain that that's not what they're doing, but why use a name that gives everyone the wrong idea? And secondly, why make the sale like some kind of game show? Let's play "See if you can figure out how to get the secret sale price." Just put the item on sale and let people buy it, for gosh sakes. Just my $0.02.

Let the fun begin.

Hey it's one more thing for me to make sure I get up in the morning! They need to do this everyday. This is the fair way to do it, just a reminder to check and a time when it is availible.

Hi Guys,
These items will be different every week. Sometimes it will be an airplane, sometimes it will be a random gadget. Not every item will appeal to every person everytime. The point is, don't tell your wife about these sales because I promise you, you'll see something you can't live with out more often than not.
For those of you who are signed up with our Hobby Lobby Insider, you will receive an email notice every Tuesday about the sale. Sometimes we will let you know what the item is early or even let you purchase it early. Sometimes it will just be a reminder to check back wed. morning to see what it is. If you haven't signed up yet and want to, you can do it here http://echo.bluehornet.com/phase2/su...?CID=rabcrf%20

This week’s CRASH item is almost sold out. Looks like just a few more minutes left.
Be sure to check back next week!

I am not complaining about anything.

I am merely helping out my fellow RCers by providing some context for the current sale offer in the form of some other offers to consider.

If I were in the market for a battery like this, I'd want to take a look at the commonsense ones.

It is precisely this type of communication that draws so many people here to this site thereby providing the vendors an opportunity to advertise to us.

It is also useful to the vendors to know what their competition is doing when making pricing decisions.

Nothing I wrote was a complaint about HL or this sale. It was just facts in an effort to help folks out.
