Default Hobbyking flycat!

I have always wanted the hobbyking flycat kit but with international being the only availability, it costs around 40 dollars shipping on a 15 dollar kit. They are having a free ship on international orders over 150. If I can get 8 to 9 usa guys to commit as I would buy 2. Send the money via paypal which would be about 25.00 per person to cover the additional shipping to you once I receive the Jets. Let me know ASAP. They have 10 plus in stock but we only have 48 hours to take advantage of t he free shipping. I will send any additional money back to each individual if the shipping is cheaper than 10 bucks. If you haven't seen the flycat in action look it up on YouTube!

Yeah, good idea. Everyone send $25 to a guy named "Shifty".

Here's a good idea Shifty. Buy ten of them yourself. Then sell them in the classifieds for $25 each.

I looked at that offer but it seemed like you had to buy off a specified list LOCALLY , and only ONE item?

EDIT, I CHECKED BACK LOOKS LIKE I WAS WRONG .....

LOL...!

I have to admit that it is a good looking kit from the postage stamp sized photo I looked at.
It would make an interesting subject scaled for 1/2 A power.

Hmm, I like those, they look like great semi-disposable airframes for back forty fun.

Bigger picture.

And with overpowered pusher setup.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjYQ73N-xf4

That moves along nicely. 25" wingspan - wouldn't be a rocket on 1/2A but it is light enough with 290g for the airframe.

Im on disability and was looking at this as an option to purchasing this plane and helping others out as well.
A guy at a club down the road from our club has one and it looks like a blast. Hits around 120 I guess.

Been a member on here a long time. I would do the same if someone else was offering to pull this deal off.

Its ok I tried

Hey, it was a good idea too. Sorry my friend, with all the wacky stuff that sometimes pops up here, it looked like it could be a fishy story as easily as it could be legitimate.

I'm in Canada, turns out I would not benefit from this as it costs too much to mail anything light weight and bulky in either direction over the border.

If your handle was "HonestEddie" maybe people would be more likely to jump in?
