Great Hobbies price drop!!!!!!!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Since i started a thread a while ago about being sour with the increased prices at pretty much any hobby shop in Canada i think it's only fair to note that there were some noticable price drops at Great Hobbies. The biggest one i saw was the new Hangar-9 Alpha trainer RTF with 2.4. If memory serves me correctly it was 499.99...... it is now $329.99!!!!!! WOW! And the Hangar-9 Extra 260 27% dropped about $50.00 bucks. Looks like the GP lineup decreased in price as well and so did the OS engine lineup. I'm thinking Horizon, Greatplanes and the big manufactures in the USA must be hurting!

Happy Buying!!

Proud owner of a Hitec A9!!

Re: Great Hobbies price drop!!!!!!!

On the Great Hobbies home page yesterday, there was a banner advertising 10% off everything storewide for one day only. The website is still showing the sale prices as of 7:30 AM this morning, but for how long I don't know. I bought a Herr Mustang and a Herr AT-6 and used my "Break the Bank" credit towards them.

Re: Great Hobbies price drop!!!!!!!

I think the price drop we are seing are the up side to the global market melt down. At any rate it will be better for the new guys who are getting started. That Alfa trainer with the 2.4 GHZ radio is the best deal going as far as I'm concerned.

I keep having the same mechanical problem. I've got a loose nut on the transmitter!
