Blimey that is pricey, £20 more expensive than a Hyper!

Yeah right - will be keen to see what he has to say

That's kind of strange, no photo of the motor for sale? Not only that it's $131.49 more then a OS50-Hyper. A OS50-Hyper is only $180.00-185-00 including shipping from Hong Hong.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Where are you buying from in Hong Kong?

A Hyper from CyberHeli (if they had any stock) would be 230 USD delivered. On top of that there is the possibility of a further 61 USD in Tax, Duty and courier admin charges.

So if you get caught by customs, that's about 170GBP.

A non-grey Hyper with warranty in the UK costs 170GBP from Midland.

Cheers,

Nigel

I paid a little less than a £100 for a Hyper and it is blue like the rest of them (ok so slightly grey too ).
Anyways BMFA from a frequent seller £135, have not looked at midlands.
Try singapore hobbies and rotor.com both had in stock a couple of weeks ago and good pricing.

There are a few of them for sale here on RR for that price, just do a search for OS 50 Hyper in the Classifieds-Engins-Mufflers.

Well what you find is that the warranty is BETTER than the UK offered *cough* warranty.

I had a friend who bought a 9Z from the states.

INCLUDING the time to ship there, fix it (New mainboard in it)and come back was 2 weeks total.

UK Distributor repair, 9 weeks

Hmm. The warranty is better. I have bought stuff from Cyber and had to return it on warranty and again better service.

The warranty issue is not an issue. Even the grey sellers here give you warranties too.

to all you guys calling the ad, i oughta mention that i have bought from this guy before, earlier this year before anybody else had posted on runryder that they had managed to get a hyper engine an ad went up on the bmfa site offering them at £135, i was a bit skeptical like you are, but i found jim to be an honest and trustworthy guy to deal with, he wanted payment up front which is fair enough so i sent him the money and afew days later a brand new hyper turned up on my doorstep by special delivery, and about a couple of weeks later all of a sudden the flood of hypers started, and then ended just as fast because they all sold out, if he says he's got the ys 50 or can get it i'd be very inclined to believe him, he seems to be really well connected abroad, just thought i'd let you all know this before you discount this ad as a fake, and as for the price, i dont think it's too bad when you consider what hypers sell for here, and he also offered me the full years warranty just like uk sellers using the backup from his suppliers.

OK Darksider, if he's so trustworthy, go place the order and if you get it within 7 days I'll buy it off you for £200. If it never arrives then you can take the hit
