Default RE: Thunder Tiger Price gouging

I just received the October issue of Tower Hobbies TowerTalk ... the price of the TT 46 pro is listed as; $94.99, but Tower just bumped the price up to $149.99 on their website ... that's a 50% increase!!!

And the price of the TT Pro 61 is listed as; $129.99 in TowerTalk, but the TowerHobbies website now lists the price at 179.99 ... a 39% increase!!

YIKES !!!

I thought there was a recession/depression going on! How could prices increase so much?
I guess when Hobbico controls the market by monopoly (being the only US ThunderTiger distributor) they can dictate the price.
Isn't that nice.

For now, the only alternative is a Magnum engine ... still at low prices.
