My first purchase on runryder as a member was from another member in south west CT. I drove just shy of 200 miles ONE WAY to buy a Raptor 90 airframe because I had never paypaled any one or had something like that shipped before even though the member assured me he could do it safely. Now, about 3 years later I have grown wiser and understand $25 in shipping beats $90 in gas and 8 hours of driving any day

Some things a seller won't ship because its too big or too expensive to ship. As a buyer if you want it you make the trip!

250 miles one way, for a used JetCopter SX, from another member, in Maine, he was from CT, great trip, would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

P.S. sorry for the spelling or the grammar I am dyslexic!

There is one member who lives about 100 miles from me I have driven to 3 times now to make purchases. He is an older gentleman who doesn't use paypal and is not crazy about shipping. I don't mind the drive and the meeting, plus it's worth it for his super clean items.

3 hours one way for 10 cases of fuel. 1 hour 15 minutes for a woman a long time ago.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

A few years back I drove 1hr 15min to see a girl for a few months. Not nearly as happy as I was with the Raptor I drove to CT for.

150 each way to meet a buyer half way. I have also taken airplanes twice to trade Helis.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D.
