raptorheli2 you were right, I received a PM back saying that we need to approach a model shop about the bulk order. Skyline gets my vote. Prices (confirmation needed) would be:

12% Nitro
£10.32/gallon = £41.25/case
20% Nitro
£12.34/gallon = £49.35/case
30% Nitro
£15.00/gallon = £59.97/case

for a full 48 case order with the 25% discount. How about each buyer picks up their share either at Skyline or at 3DM on 24th July (12 weeks), unless they want it shipped at buyers expense? Not sure if this arrangement would be possible.

Preliminary orders are....

2 for myself
2 for FENMAN
I assume 2+ for raptorheli2

only 42 more cases to go! If more people are interested please add your required number of cases and nitro %age.

I thought it was 48 gallons which you had to get together, not 48 cases !!

Thats like 192 gallons which at 30% would cost the lucky buyer £2880 Ouch

Sounds good but you`re all comparing the price of one gallon of cool power to buying 192 gallons of Magnum.Any one got a price on 192 gallons of cool power to see what we would realy save.

Lets be fair here, CP30% is already £7-8 a gallon more(retail prices), so its gonna have to be a huge discount to beat it

rip off britain and no changing it

My Posts: All  Forum  Topic

right, i phoned skyline. this is possible but not shipped to different locations. so it would need to be picked up from skyline or we can probably get it delivered to the 3dm and pick it up from there they said. i'm assuming the people who want this will be going anyway so this might be a good option.

the guy at skyline said he would post on here later the prices and how this could happen if at all, but we would get the 25% discount on 48 cases.

cheers

I also heard that you needed to have a bmfa club number in order to get the discount (ie its only meant for clubs)

If a runryder order does come off i would be up for 3 cases but 3dm is like 12 weeks away...

Cheers

prices should work out at this

12% nitro per case is £54.99 - 25% giving £41.25

20% nitro per case is £65.80 - 25% giving £49.35

30% nitro per case is £79.96 - 25% giving £59.97

these prices are NOT from skyline but they are based on their prices minus the 25% discount. this is the price we should pay roughly.

skyline will post exact prices later.

you do need to be a member of a club registered with the bmfa but this should cause no problems to anybody here. i don't think magnum care if it is one club who buys this or 20 clubs, as long as they are a bmfa memeber or affiliate. it just so happens our club is RR. i don't see the problem in doing this. but if magnum will only deal with clubs then that is understandable.

as for the time scale i know it's a bit away but posting this lot can't be done unless one of the group buyers takes the full delivery and then ships the fuel to the rest of the group.

just now there is more questions than answers but it's worth a go to try and get this, if it doesn't happen then so be it.

cheers

I agree it's worth a go, you may need to buy a few gallons to tide you over but will still make a nice saving come July.

rh2 do you want to create a new topic on this in the main forum? Since it was your idea . Potential 'Club RR-Magnum UK' members might not pick up on this if it's buried in this thread....

Thanks

Hi chaps, coming back to you following a couple of conversations earlier in the day.

In conjunction with Magnum fuels we are offering a Bulk purchase scheme for clubs which will enable a discount of 25% on a minimum order quantity of 48 cases. We are currently working on a delivery price schedule to different parts of the UK.

Our web site will be updated in the next 24 hours to provide full details of the scheme. Please bear in mind that the scheme is directly aimed at clubs and whilst I have no wish to spoil the party, a club RR bulk purchase scheme does not fit with the spirit of the offer....

Finally, its great to see the positive feedback about Magnum, happy flying
