anyone know why horizon doubled their prices on a few parts?
Most likely an increase in manufacturing costs.

+1

I must have missed this? please show me good reasons why
JR Vibe 50 Main frames went from $46.99 @ Readyheli to $99.00 @ RH
Why did a Vibe 50 Swashplate go from $35.99 @ RH to $105.99 @ RH
Why did a Vibe 50 fueltank go from $10.99 to $23.99 @ RH
Why did a Vibe 50 Landing gear set go from $10.99 to $24.99 @ RH
Why did a set of Vibe 50 flybar paddels go from $9.99 to $23.99
WHY????????????????????????????????????????

Why?
Was it inflation? No that kind of increase is not inflation
Was it currency exchange rates No

Answer =

Or a need to bolster sagging margins...

Looks like a last minute marketing strategy discussed over a cup of coffee...or maybe the (JR/Horizon) product manager forgot to polish his business plan...and if he's still on the job...looks like we'll be seeing less and less JR heli's in the field.

I don't think JR/Horizons new bussiness plan even took as long as a
cup of coffee?

It's a shame that JR part prices are so crazy expensive!
That is why you see so many people flying ALIGN T REX 700's

JR/Horizon's business model is just wrong, does it
make sense to sell only one helicopter a day and make
a $100.00 profit or does it make more sense to sell
1000 helicopters a day and make a $1.00 profit on
each?

Places like helidirect seem to be keeping their prices low. Although I don't think they sell the large parts like frames and such.will wash your heli for a quarter

I don't see it. I buy at HP and HP South for my Vibe 50 parts. They are selling mainframes at $54.99 and $59.99 respectively. The rest of the parts are still what they seemed for the past several months.

I've never bought anything from a distributor, unless there are no retailers available.
