sounds like trouble?
If you got an email from a certain hobby shop in Texas saying they have a 25% off sale on everything in the store, followed with a thanks for your business note...

smells to me like they are going under.

I sure hope not.

What site?
Ron's R/C Helicopters, formerly known as Heliproz South, aka Ron Lund.

I don't think he's going anywhere. 25% discount since they've now been in business 25 years according to his FB page. Good thing, too, because Ron is a great guy. I used to fly with him in Corpus way back when he was Rick's Helis and just a corner in his father-in-law's (Rick) building supply business in 1994/5.

I don't think he's going anywhere. 25% discount since...
I hope not either but have you even noticed he has only a few items in stock?...I hope this is temporary cause alot of the web pages have been cleared and are blank for the kits...

I was hoping he was going to start stocking up on new MA stuff, but I have my doubts.

I seriously hope he is just trying to clear out all the stuff thats just been collecting dust and focus on just the good stuff... market sure has shrunk though....

The well was bound to run dry . I dont mean to sound heartless but yu have to stay updated with what's selling and popular. MA was one of Rons top sellers, MA is now owned by a german couple and is in the process of rebuilding. Align is still a good helicopter but not doing as well as SAB, JR, OXY, etc. You cant keep a business going with limited customer base. 25 yrs is nothing to be ashamed of.

I just received another 25% discount offer from a DIFFERENT company. Does this mean they are going out of business too???To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

A webstore offers 25% off and suddenly they are going out of business.

Come on guys.. it's just a sale to move some merchandise and pay some taxes... just like he said.

I imagine all the hobby sites are not doing as well with all the anxiety about the FAA.

If Ron Lund does not have it... I don't need it!

I've spoken to Ron. What he put on his website is the truth. Those of you who do not own businesses of your own that pay taxes on inventory cannot fathom the tax pressures that occur. You get taxed for stuff you've already paid the vendor for but have not yet sold. And of course it's that much worse in the hobby business where a 25% margin is deemed generous. Yeah right.... Of course Ron has a lot of stuff out of stock. He can't restock until he pays the tax bill and can go back to using profits to buy inventory instead of paying taxes. The best thing we can do for Ron is to not allow the rumor mill to gin up a funeral for his business and instead just buy some stuff. If it's not in stock, call him. He'll get in in a few days for you I'm sure.

That puts him in a tough position... If he cant restock until after paying taxes he is loosing potential customers... sad truth is people dont like waiting on stuff and will go elsewhere to order.

keep in mind competitors are always watching...if they hear you have a sale, they soon post a sale to compete (sometimes they even give a slightly bigger discount if you can prove the sale by a competitor)...and the guy who has it in stock gets the order.

fact is Loyalty only goes so far when your wallet is at stake.

I really hope he gets the MA stuff...soon, I hate wait lists.

I've purchased a lot of stuff from Ron over the years. He's a stand up guy.

Ron has also put together some excellent videos in recent year. If you haven't see them you can find them here:
