Default Amazing Prices

Has anyone bought from this website yet ? Looks like they have a $300.00 minimum, but they sell $400.00 planes for under $200.00. Im afraid to order from them because they only accept Western Union Money transfer. I would sure love to buy a few planes from them, like this PT-17 Stearman by Great Planes for $107.00, even if I had to buy 3 to get that price. There normally about $400.00 I think. I don't trust that site.

You saw that the outfit is in Hong Kong, ships by EMS. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. By using Western Union transfer, wonder what the process for "disappearing funds" is?

I did a search on google and found a deal on Scamadvisor where 2 people said they didn't get their stuff, and they wouldn't answer their emails. It doesn't look too good so far.

be warned, once you give money to western union, there is NO WAY of ever getting it back. they don't return your money and will not accept claims

How about this? A Top Flight 85" P47 for $72.00, that Tower sells for $750, with $80 for shipping. This site says they will sell and ship it for $72. I guess I'm from Missouri

That's the kit, not the ARF CCFPILOT. Still a great price (assuming you actually receive the item) since the kit goes for about $279 + shipping.

You are right. They use the same picture as Tower, which is a picture of the ARF, so I guess I was fooled by the picture without reading the fine print; but, I'm still from Missouri, the Show Me State.

I want that Great Planes 71" PT-17 Stearman for my 26cc gas engine. At $107.00 I would be glad to buy 3 of them to meet the minimum order, but im afraid they would never show up.
If it's too good to be true, it probably is, unfortunately.
