I bought new Zinger 20-10 wooden props for $1 each. Also an engine mount for a gas engine.

There were some good deals to be had especially for the used plane/engine packages.

Always an enjoyable experience.

The London swap meet, like previous swap meets both at London and other places, really is a "buyers" market, more than a sellers.

I'm sure that I will get a few disgruntled comments, and it's certainly not to be taken as a knock against the show itself, or the organizers, but it does seem that people expect "something for nothing" when attending these swap meets.

I do take things to sell at these swaps, but tend not to sell much because I don't want to "give away" what I have. When I price them I try to be fair and am always open to reasonable offers on what I have.

I also tend to have some "unusual" planes so people are often wary of buying them.

Anyway, just my little rant and two cents. I do enjoy going because there is always such a wide array of planes and such for sale.

Safety Precautions: Do not touch the rolling airscrew in order not to be hurt!

I'd like to offer you moral support, but I have questionable morals!

London swap meet

this was my first time to the London swap meet, and I really enjoyed it, I did get some great deals on a lot of little things, and a few big things, I actually made a little list of things I really needed for the upcoming building season, and I found about 99% of what I really needed, and at a great price. but it was great just to look and see the many different types of planes, and accessories that are available to us in this great hobby, and I want to say that everybody I met yesterday was great to deal with, and allways willing to share information if I asked, similar to Toledo , it was just a great day. will definately go again.......

Well I was there selling and yes it definatyely was a buyers market at my table!

But hey the way i look at it is I decided to sell it cuz I really didn't want it any more so anything is better then nothing.

Didn't get to buy too much though

I think next year I will go in buying mode only.

It's great to see everyone but I did notice that crowds were down from last year.

I went to get servos and whatever struck my fancy that I could afford. I got my servos, and some used props, motor mounts, and some more odds and sods. Good time, too!
