here the prices went up and they never went down after the whole olympic thing. the next time they have an excuse to raise prices the same thing will happen which will put coolpower around 40 and wildcat in the mid 30's.

what is weird, is the fact that here cool power is quite abit more than wildcat, but the oppisite in other places.

We have 2 local hobby shops and fuel was the same,even when prices went up because of the olympics.Once the olympics were over one hobby shop dropped the price back down and the other stayed skyhigh.Everyone stopped buying from them and 2 months down the road the price dropped back down.I can understand them wanting to get there money back out of that timespan but to keep it there is ripping people off imo.Some of you guys should buddy up and buy right from CY or Coolpower,maybe the'll get the hint and drop the prices back down.Not poking at you or anything but I get a case for when you'll spend on 2 gallons,thats freaking crazy.600LE,OS55,OS PowerBoost pipe,Align 610's,Spartan

I don't get it. According to my economics professor, the rules of free market economy dictate that when the profit margin of a given product rises, as is seemingly the case here, players are supposed to enter the market increasing production and driving the price back toward equalibrium.

What frikkin gives? CoolPower 30% is $28/gallon here, $100/case. I wanna pay $82/case. I'm jealous!

PS: I could go for some cheaper lipos too.

Nitro in Noblesville
Sounds like JC Zankl is using up all the nitro in your area, he's been flying the snot out of that pair of TREX 700's this past year.

Nitro for life,i'll never give it up and its going nowhere
+ 1,000,000

Can't beat the smell. No point in flying if you don't have to clean the oil off at the end of the day

Besides, if I take 3 Nitros to the field I get about 20 flights in a day. I really couldn't be 4rsed to charge 20 batteries and lug them up the field every time

I love the smell of nitro as well -- but even more I love the smell of that old fuel we used back in the 60's lubed with castor oil. Every once in awhile someone uses some again -- the smell brings memories of those days flooding back. I should get some to smear on my mustache while flying electric.

The vintage on this 'stache is '77. Been here through 'thick and thin' ever since.

I carry 10 lipos for my electrics and another 4 for my nitro. It's not a big deal unless you're a girly man!

I have better things to do than plug and unplug batteries all day. Besides, if you finish at the field at 1800 one day, how can you be back at 0900 the next day for another full day

No need to answer, I don't care
