Hey Mike,
I thought I was but maybe since I have a new internet service some stuff appears to be missing.. I'm not all that ssure I 'm that happy with my new service. but it is certainly better than no service at all..
I'll keep my eye on the weekends also.. My wife has been begging me to buy some more planes and stuff.....:ws:

Ribcracker 10-25-2007 04:01 AM

I never get reminders or ads any more from them even though I have signed up (many times) for the "insider".
When I can remember, I check in on wednesdays for the crash sale but haven't seen one in a long, long time. I've written e-mails several times and can't seem to get on their list.
Dave, what's been your experience? Are you still getting e-mail ads from them?

aviatordave 10-25-2007 04:03 AM

No...I have not gotten any notices from them. I get alot from other hobby sources. Maybe I will have to go back and request it again....

Kosh 10-25-2007 04:10 AM

I signed up to get there emails when it first started the "Crash Sales" and only in the last month started receiving mine.

tppjr 10-26-2007 03:22 AM

Back to the plane, anyone have one of these? Looks like a good candidate for one of these motor/controllers:


What do you think??


Kosh 10-26-2007 11:02 PM

Should be ok with that motor and a 6x5.5 prop. I believe its the biggest prop that will fit the plane. For a lighter motor have a look at these.

aviatordave 11-07-2007 04:26 PM

Sorry Guys !
No CRASH item this week -
Look for another CRASH item on
Wed., Nov. 14th at 8:00 AM (CST)!

Ribcracker 11-07-2007 07:20 PM

Thanks for keeping us apprised. It hadn't even dawned on me that this is Wednesday and that I need to check the crash.
I sure wish they'd send out the reminders like they used to. I bet I'd buy a lot more stuff. But since they don't, I'm glad you do and I know a lot of us would appreciate the reminder whenever you think of it.

aviatordave 11-07-2007 08:46 PM

No problem Ribcracker....I am always on the hunt for a good deal :)

Here is an email I got today, they must know that their email system is not working. Everyone interested needs to update their account to get the crash sale notifications.

Well, I will be darned! I got one too. What an odd coincidence. I wonder if they saw these posts. I doubt it but you never know. Either way, I'm glad to finally be receiving the notifications again. Hot dog!

Airhead 11-08-2007 04:58 AM

Hey Dave,
Thanks for that info. I haven't gotten any notification in quite a while..

aviatordave 11-09-2007 07:17 PM

If your planning a purchase, you might want to make one on Monday (11/12/2007) Vetrans day observed.

Furthermore, in honor of Veteranís Day, Hobby-Lobby will donate 5% of ALL SALES to Fisher House (www.fisherhouse.org). This applies to all orders placed from Noon Friday, Nov. 9th through Monday, Nov. 12, 2007. Fisher House is a fantastic charity that supports the families of our troops in their time of need.


aviatordave 11-14-2007 11:36 PM

A little late, but you prob guessed that there was no sale today. It sounds like they are not going to have one next Wednesday either. Last year they had a Big Thanksgiving sale (as did alot of others). If I see anything I'll post it ASAP.

Mike Freas 11-14-2007 11:42 PM

Yeah last Thanksgiving and Christmas they had a big sale. I'm in the market for two motors but my wife doesn't know it yet.

Ribcracker 11-15-2007 03:37 AM

Geez, I forgot to check it again. It's a good thing you're keeping an eye on things.
I believe my brain is wilting on the vine.

aviatordave 11-20-2007 07:48 PM

After Thanksgiving Day Sale
It starts at 7 am and changes every hour, so if your interested keep your eyes open.


Mike Freas 11-20-2007 08:16 PM

Hobby-lobby knows how to do it in my book. Now I'm going to be looking every hour to see if the motors I want are on sale. Other on-line stores should follow this. Tower offers the money off deal but usually I don't spend enough to get the deal.
