Have you seen the latest price on the TF Corsair?
 
Remember when the TopFlite Gold Edition 60 size F4U Corsair came out and was almost instantly sold out? Tower had them at $399 right?

Well a couple of weeks ago, they cut the price to $299.

OK, today they're advertising them for $249.99.

If you look at the 'additional discount' list on Tower's website's front page, you'll notice you can get $30 off a $250 purchase. ~$210 for a $400 ARF ain't a bad deal is it?

And if you are a Tower Club member, you could get $50 off of $250, and shipping would be free.

I wish they'd cut the P47 price like that. And the Warhawk's price. And......

Not just yet Larry but it wont be long. They are demobilizing us out to the base. They are planning on turning over to the Afghans. I just soon not be here when that happens. They will be handling the base security too. I will feel so safe and secure when that happens. NO THANKS!!! But it will be there when I get there though and I already have a OS 91 4stroke waiting on it. Now to find some retracts.
Hope your doing OK

Dang! Couldn't resist. Pulled the trigger on it. I was tempted to when it was down to $299 before. Good thing I waited. Used the $50 off code (for club members) so just over $200 shipped. Very nice deal.

I'm happy for y'all. Eventhough it cost me almost $300 last week, it's kewl to see them going for $200.

At $250 I just could not pass it by. I have been looking at since it was first released and the $399 price just put me off. With $50 discount I got it for $200; that is half price!:D

Another thread about the price says it's an inventory reduction etc. It doesn't show up in the inventory reduction lists.

Heck, they've knocked the price down twice. Who knows what they'll do next.

I pulled the trigger on one this morning as well. A quality .60 size warbird Corsair for $220 just was too good to pass up. Plus I convinced my kids it was the perfect Christmas present! :)

RE: Have you seen the latest price on the TF Corsair?
 
During one of my club's Christmas party the other night, one of the biggest discussions was about the huge savings on this ARF.

Next summer is going to have blue skies for sure. It looks like a lot of Navy Blue is going to be in the sky, clouds or not.

It's interesting that we can get a Gold Edition level ARF for half price.

I wish I hadn't read this thread, now I have one on the way for $199.99! Need another Corsair like I need another hole in my head.

It's creative accounting.

If you're a Tower Club member, you can apply a second discount against your total purchase. The model is $249.99. To get a discount of right at $50, you'd have to purchase $250-$299 total. So he's got to buy the model and something else. He got $50 everything he bought, but figures the $50 against the $249.99 and nothing against the other stuff he bought.

If you're not a Tower Club member, you can still take $30 off your total order if it is $250-$299.99.

I posted the other thread about it probably being an unannounced inventory reduction, Tower does that occasionally so you have to browse the site regularly to catch some of them. Some time back a friend snagged a giant scale Corsair for $399.00...was on Tower's site at that price less than 8 hours.

Received a Tower email this morning announcing "Year End Sale"...the 60 Corsair is on it for $249.99. They may be clearing existing inventory as more may be on the water inbound. It is a great deal even if Corsairs are not your favorite warbird.

Man, at that price, it is tempting to get another for a spare.

RE: Have you seen the latest price on the TF Corsair?
 
Mine was $249.99 plus the gold member $50 discount = 199.99. Going to do this one in the RNAF scheme

I believe the GP Corsair 60 has a cockpit kit as standard. Did you order another?

Bruce, this is the Top Flite model arf . I double checked just now and see no mention of it coming with a cockpit kit. Did I miss something? At any rate, I will have it just to have it :)

Sorry, I meant the TF Corsair 60 ARF.:D According to the manual it does come with a cockpit kit. See pages 26 and 27 of the manual. I also assembled the TF P-47 60 ARF and it too came with a cockpit kit.

RE: Have you seen the latest price on the TF Corsair?
 
Bruce, I looked at the online manual and you are quite correct, it says it does come with the cockpit kit,..my apology to you. Hey, at least I'll have a spare to put into something else on down the road, right? ;)
