Im sure there's a few diy guys that would rewind the TP motors even if they bought it new.
Some items are returned to the manufacturer, and some are not. I do tend to end up with some odds and ends laying around, so this might be a good idea!

Yeah I hadn't thought of that. Duh me.

Hey Jeff, now that you are free of the eBay shackles, how about you offer props for sale individually? Sometimes I like getting a volume discount, but more often than not I don't need 5 of the same type of prop.

Jeff,

Bulk packaging sales is only a good idea if you are trying to drive your total sales and you are trying to return your investment sooner.

I ordered a motor from Jeff recently. Could not be happier with the price or service. Thanks Jeff!

We plan to sell GWS props in packs of three and Tower Pro props in packs of two beginning early next year. The reason that we don't sell them individually is that it can really screw up our shipping costs. If a customer orders a 2410-09Y motor and GWS 1147 props, we have to use a 12 inch box rather than a much smaller box for just the motor. We need to make the props pay their way...it's one way we keep our shipping costs low

You could always price them differently depending on how many are bought. That way you get the cost of the box paid for with the first prop sold. $2 for one, $3.50 for two, $5 for three. With these prices you are selling each prop for $1.50 plus 50 cents for the box. As a buyer, all I see is a discount for buying extra props.

RE: Shipping:

Jeff....

I sell a lot of stuff on FeeBay. I use #3 bubble mailers for many things. GWS props fit in them nicely. They are light and cheap when bought by the case.

Just a suggestion.

Why not just give a head's up to Head's Up RC?

I know that was stupid, but the title caught me.

Could you imagine if our fave 'net vendor (That would be Jeff @ HeadsUpRC) started selling GWS airframes? (hint, hint)

Check out Model Aviation (January 2009), page 84, Question 383.

A little nice free advertising for Jeff. Business might be getting better soon!

Default How does Jeff do it?

I placed my order online right at 11:00 AM Sat. the 23rd, Monday was a holiday. Tuesday morning my order was here. You can't beat shipping like that & for only $2.

Thanks A Lot Jeff,
SJ

Default Atta Boy!

I have purchashed many motors from Jeff and have been very happy with the items themselves, the service and especially the price!. I appreciate his comments on the motor/prop/performance figures. It has helped me make many an educated decisions. Keep up the good work Jeff! Marty

Default Bigger place

Judging from your photo, stevecooper, you could use a bigger place! I love it though, gives you a nice feeling looking at all those planes hanging on the walls. Somehow, I haven't been able to convince my wife that it would be nice to hang some of my planes from the ceiling in the living room! Still trying though. Marty

Smile Thumbs up to Headsup

I bought a few batteries for my micro Cessna 210 from Jeff. The batteries wouldn't fit into to charger that came with the plane. I brought this to Jeff's attention and he sent me a charger (The one that comes with the Mustang) for FREE. If that isn't consideration and customer service I don't know what is. I have nothing but praise for Headsuprc. and Jeff.

Several years ago Jeff was wintering about a 3 hours drive from me. He mailed out a package to me and it took the Postal Service something like 8 or 9 days to get it to me. Looked like the box had gone around the world 3 or 2 times.
Just in case one of ya'lls spam filters are acting up I sent Jeff an email letting him know you were having a problem with your order.

Standing By,
SJ
