Doesn't look like they have a USA radio channel or Mode 2. Better check shipping. I am too tired of giving info to get shipping prices. May be much higher.

To know the shipping price, just add the item to the cart and you can select your
country below to see the shipping price.
The price to ship to the US is about $32.

That would make it about $20 below average.
But in the US, you need 72mhz Mode 2.

HeliDirect has them for $149.99, but if you're in the U. S. the shipping is free and FAST. I ordered parts last Friday late in the day and got my parts on Monday.

The price looks good, but it says that shipping is $49.99. That's awfully steep for a domestic delivery. I'm seeing this a lot on ebay now, it seams. People are selling items for really good "Buy it now" prices, and then really sticking it to you for the shipping.

I just ordered a HBFP from xheli.com and got free shipping with code "CJFREE2" Here's a link to their site for the king 2 for 149.00.

I would be a help to get it from HeliDirect. They are a good wide range seller that will be able to provide better service for your buy. Supporting them will support you by funding them to keep buying at a large volume discount for replacement parts to resell.
Continously buying replacement parts from a main source insures that they will continue to stock the parts. When sales fall off, they drop the model line.

Just checked - $40.
$ 122.50 + $40 = $162.50

XHeli shows it now for $155 and it includes the "Anti-crash kit". With the Promo code "CJFREE2" it's free shipping.

Anyone knows of a better deal?

The reason they do this, is two fold. One, they escape ebay fees on the large amount due in shipping. Two, its an attention grabber for those looking for a deal, but you end up not getting a deal.
