I believe that price is incorrectly listed in USD. Its likely an incorrect conversion from an Indonesia currency.

I think the price is right. But the are asking for a bank transfer. No protection there. I bought a laptop and paid via bank transfer never got the laptop nor my money..
I'll think twice about that one.

Says they take credit cards. Also says that prices include VAT, which if I'm not mistaken is around 15% which we don't have to pay.

Well I purchased one.
I went to the checkout and the only thing there is a bank transfer form with the bank details and account number.
I printed the form and once the transfer has been made then I fax them a copy of it and they process the order.

Should I go ahead with it or scrap it??

Hmm, selling a heli made in the US, that the best price I have every seen is $1000 for about $400 less?

With a bank transfer. Which means they have your money wiht no recourse.

Yeap, I believe that. And I just bought a very nice bridge in NYC.

You know what they say about "deals too good to be true"! I wouldn't do it unless it was a reputable R/C shop.

Another thing!
This place is in Indonesia! How much would shipping be from Indonesia? That would be another thing to take into consideration.

Wow, that's tempting. Remember what Dad used to say "If it sounds too good to be true it probably is!"

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!

I wrote those guys an email and waiting for a reply.

I was reading through the ads of the helicopters and I think those are used items.
They come assembled with all electronics and engines.

the photos they look like they are stock photos and not of the actual model.
On one ad for the raptor 30 this is what he wrote.""Is My 30 Size Raptor Helicopter. This is in GREAT SHAPE. Has New Mavrikk CF Main Blades, CF Rear Roter Blades, CF Boom Struts. Futaba GY401 Gyro with Digital Servo for Rudder. All Futaba Servos. Includes Receiver (with no crystal) and Battery. Very Nice Custom Painted Fiberglass Canopy. Wip Antenna. Remote Glow Driver. Has The GREAT RUNNING and Very DEPENDABLE OS Max SX 32 Engine. The Helicopter Runs and Flys Great. Just Add Your Transmitter (6 channel radio) and Your Up and Flying.""
So, to me it looks like they are used items..

I'll wait and see waht reply I would get and let evryone know.
Also I will go to my bank and find out what the risk is with bank transfers.

Cheers

Ask to use an Escrow service and offer to pay the fee for it. If they are legit they may be willing to do that and it will protect you on your end. OH!!! order two and I'll take one off your hands and split the total cost.

Thats the best Gasser I ever owned.
