For those of you whom are Nitro lovers like myself I will place an order for fuel through Byrons Roto Rage fuel on Friday 16, 2018. I don’t mind ording for those of you who would like a case or so. Please read the price list and send the correct money if you decide not to send it as a gift and your money is short I will politely return your money without question. If you don’t pick up your fuel at the event I will not return your money or ship any fuel to you that will be your loss and I will do with it what I see fit. Please don’t take it personal we are all adults and we should all act that way can’t wait to see you guys and have a great time with you let’s Do the Ditch and do it big Birmingham 2018...qroadrunner96@yahoo.com

I believe you are suggesting people use PayPal and use the "gift" option to avoid PayPal fees. Is that right? That will be effective at avoiding transaction fees but the buyer gives up all recourse if there is a dispute. PayPal, not unreasonably, asks, how can there be proof of delivery for a gift? If someone were to send you money with the gift option, and if something were to happen where the exchange of fuel wasn't possible, the buyer would have no recourse. At that point the funds truly would be a gift.

I appreciate your effort and time in trying to get our modeling friends fuel. Getting fuel is not always easy these days and any bit helps. There is enough downward pressure on this hobby and anything to help modelers stay airborne is a good thing. I don't want this to be one of those "No good deed goes unpunished" kind of things. Just want you and others to know that "gifting" money is akin to sending cash.
