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).

The power supply's were a nice touch. If I didnt already have one, I would have gotten one.

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.

Yeah, the power supplies were nice, but still too expensive (even at the Crash Sale price). I bought a Cosel power supply on eBay for $20, and it has been very good to me for 5 years.

The Crash Sale deals just don't seem like good deals. :o

This cracks me up, I've been watching since early Dec:



No CRASH Sale This Week



Look for another CRASH item next Wednesday, December 16th

Here's Hobby Lobby's Crash Sale item for today. First item I've seen in awhile that's worth a second look or maybe even buying. Anyone have anything to say about this one?

Standing By,
SJ

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

Standing By,
SJ

I've been waiting years for the WWI Albatros to go on a real sale. At $50 more than a GP Dr.1 I am surprised they sell them at all.

BEAR, its just a gimmick for a overstock or a slow mover type sale. There is nothing wrong with the planes.

Only on Wednesdays, for a limited supply. Once gone, gone.

OK, thanks for the info.

One of the guys at the field has one, it looks good & its a very nice flyer. He wrote one of the 4* reviews on HL's web site.

EDIT: Ordered the crash sale WACO will see how long it takes to get it or if it turns up on backorder. Got my Senior Telemaster ARF from them & it was a quick delivery.

I have a Pilot-1 Waco and it is a beautiful ARF! $129 is a great price. It is no good for aerobatics, but it is such a pretty airplane in the air

The instructions are silent on this, but you will have to add weight to the nose to get the CG forward enough for stable flight. I was not happy with the way it flew until I got the CG right.

Pat said he had to add 3oz to the nose to get the CG right.

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

In a moment of weakness, I picked up an FMS F-16 on Crash Sale yesterday By the time I ordered, all they had left were the airframe only kits, so now it's off to HK to load up a cart full of EDF stuff

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...
