AIRHOG's to ship to soldier in iraq please read responses

i have a buddy who wants to learn r/c and is stationed in Camp Arifjan Kuwait
ARCENT-ARA Retention for the next 2 years. i have been sending him care packages and though this would be neat, but getting expensive. ANYONE HAVE A NEW one for somewhat cheap? reflex/bipe/jet? trying to save a little extra cash. he though he would like one to fly on time off in the desert. and its small enough to send in the military boxxes. otherwise toys-r-us here i come..



or if i could get 1 or 2 donated , i could send them to my friend to give to a few other guys over there. id pay shipping there.

thank you. its my close friend. he called the other day from iraq and said his step dad was doing r/c and it was something he wanted to do. so i shipped him a stack of model avaition mags and going to send him a airhog to mess with. when he gets back i got a trainer waiting for him also.

Wow. i just had a guy here, on the site offer to pay for most of a airhog to send overseas for me to help my buddy out. This just tells you the kind of suporters and nice people that are here on this site. and i cant thank you enough. My buddy terry says its hard to go from having alot to nothing over there. alot of soilders dont even get care packages. this is why i am doing this. he likes reading my model avaition mags i send over there. there is alot of them in iraq now. lol spreading the joy!!!

if you would like to help please contact me.Terry has many people under him over there and he can pass stuff on too. and they say seeing stuff from here helps them through the days. having a friend over there really makes you want to help more on top of already helping.

thank you

Better check and see if he can use it there..............I have a friend that went to Iraq and I shipped him a plane and they would not let him fly it anywhere at any time.......Something about unauthorized transmitters and possible interference

he said he could fly something small. might get him a reflex to fly in his tent. Where he is at, they might not mind from the sounds of it.

I was just told he said it was fine. he said they have a small r/c place others fly over there, so anything would be cool. his boss said that the radio equipment of the r/c wont effect there equipment. so i guess its fair game. im trying to get him to find the r/c field and send pictures. if i get some i will post for sure!
