Vario helicopters
Can somebody please explain why it’s so difficult to get a hold of a distributor that sells Vario helis here in the USA? I have repeatedly made attempts to contact East Coast Scale helis that sells Vario with no success???

You should also post this in the Scale Helicopters forum here, if you haven't already. Lots of "friends of Joe" there that can help you out.

Guess I should have replied with this here and not in the Scale section. Here goes...

It’s not great with Vario in Australia and really I’ve never understood Vario’s marketing at all. The local importer seems quite unusual to deal with, kinda like he’s selling high end diamonds and or you need to apply for the adoption of a helicopter!
I really wanted a Skyfox SX some years ago but just couldn’t bring myself to hand over the cash as I couldn’t help but feel I was being screwed over. I really don’t like that awkward feeling that you need to kiss someone’s arse so that you can give them your hard earned money, deep breath then walk in the door. These are just toys after all.
Vario just don’t seem to be particularly interested in selling product, and seem to price and market accordingly. I also always thought an importer would have to show some sales performance over the years to maintain exclusivity?

Vario product moves on its own. Start with a Benzin Trainer of the electric version. From there the mechanics can be used in a scale. Try Canadian or USA dealers. Better yet see if you can find one on the forums for a good savings.William S Harris

Old Tread I know..

Looks like Vario is doing a much better job of marketing there products in the US. I have been buying from Peak Aircraft (ALSO a US Vario dealer). You simply log onto there website.. go to the Vario tab and order what you need. I think East Coast is doing the same thing as the Vario web pages are made and maintained (it looks like) by Vario. Easy to order and so far I have acquired everything I have ordered. (not one back order).. having said this some of the larger items (or smaller) might ship from Germany but me.. I dont care to much if there is a shipping delay. I am never in much of a hurry.

We have since eliminated the larger web page we had and just use the store for the Vario orders now.

Are you sure that is a legitimate Link. That site has a secretive address and what I found comes back to house that does not look like a business.

Can an Australian purchase directly from a Vario agent in the USA or are we still forced to use our local agent?Quest NEO Caliber ZG, Zenoah G260PUH, CGY750, NHP 750, NHP 115.

It does not show the physical location of the "dealer". Only information is an email address that cannot be traced.

From the link provided by @notar upstream in this thread you need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click > contact

I've talked to Joe personally over the years as well as many others. He's been a dealer for a very long time. If it is run out of his house, who cares. You sure like to stir up some stuff on here as of late.
