Does anyone actually buy things on Hobby Lobby's "Crash Sale" any more? The sale items are just not good (a brushed motor this week), compared to when the crash sale first started (Alfa warbirds, if I recall correctly).
Owner of the UNCLUB flying site and hobby shop in Arcadia, OK.
Yesterday's sale was the first that interested me in a looooooooooong time. I probably would have ended up with a sukhoi if I hadn't debated so long. I wouldn't have debated if I hadn't just ordered a different plane the day before.
There is ALWAYS room for some levity in your brevity!
Biplanes and me dont get along too well.... its a nice deal this time though.
I think so too. I showed it to the wife & explained how the Crash Sale worked and she said she didn't care if I bought it but it was the way she said it that makes me wonder what else it'll cost me
Dang, just bought her a nice used car that's way better than what she had been driving for the past 8 or 9 years It even has a CD player that works and AC too
I wonder how long I'll have to eat those Soup Sandwiches this time
cause I'm doing the order up now
You can bury me after I'm done flying

Went down to the shop and picked me one up, too. Had $10 in "Hobby Lobby Cash" to use on it, which almost negated the 9.25% local sales tax, so I walked away spending $131 and some change.
Doug, I remember you getting this one put together quite a while back when we were talking about Suppo motors a bunch. I might have to pick your brain on it a little bit. I'm hoping it looks as good in the air as it does on the box! I saw some guys paint theirs up in different schemes on RCG, and they looked fantastic. You can also get a "US Mail" graphics set for these from Callie's Graphics. They look sharp! http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...&#post11355408

This wasn't from the crash sale, but I just picked up a mig 15 from the sidewalk sale rx ready for 15 bucks. Now that is a bargain.
Probably the only way to get a great deal from them, is to be there and get lucky or bargain. I'm assuming you got/did both. I don't even bother looking at their sales anymore, as the pricing is just a bit closer to what is should be, that's all.
Agreed. The crash sale used to really mean something, but no more.
I can remember getting up early just to be one of the first in line to buy treasures at over half off. A couple hours later they'd be outta stock because the prices were so good. Ah, the good old days...
It's easy to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it.
