So does your post count as a "buying lead"?

Used this site a number of times in college when I was doing a lot of importing. This is a site where you buy in bulk for distribution though, you can't generally buy just one of anything.

I looked up the new Axial on there. It say you can get them as low as $90 a kit! I wonder how many you would have to get for that deep of a discount?

true that, but some items do have a quanity of one.
and several are 3-10

and you can actually negotiate the price of bigger ticket items with patients and persistance.

Whats the say. Something like, A fool and his money will quickly be separated.

If you think you can get them for that price, good luck to you.

You're taking a HUGE risk if you send payment for those. Not saying it's a scam, but I'd be far more surprised if they showed up than if they didn't.

Wouldnt going and getting a business licence and Tax ID number and contacting axial be a better route? and could be the same price and have better chance of getting them.

My buddy and I pondered it for all of about 5 minutes this morning after reading the email. That price is just TOO good. We figured that 119.99 shipped (89.99 + 30.00 for shipping), min order of 5 is $600 worth of risk. BUT,sell them for 250 each and pocket $650 profit if you do. OR, Sell 3 for $250ea, $150 profit plus we would each have one to keep.

BUT;
I don't have $600 I can afford to lose if it doesn't work out. I'll pay my $289 for an XR10 like everybody else.

Almost everything I used to import was paid for using Western Union. You just send the money and there you sit, hoping it comes in.

If you pay a reasonable price it's likely to be legit, I gaurantee these are not.

They are a verified company. I know they could still screw people but I have talked to some people that have delt with them before with good luck. How can you gurantee they are not legit. I know the price seems really low but they are out of China and there isn't 8 different middle men getting there cut. Inflation is pretty big in this market.

I was turned onto this site by one of the engeneirs that helped design the pools I build.

he has NEVER had a problem with dealing on this site.
however he said he always checks the companies reputation on the site.

he said the companies always respond fast and ship fast. he is into the hili's
and planes and buys from here often.

he was turned onto this site from a friend who sell heli's.
he buys them here and sell them for double at fairs and carnivals.

I personally would not like to send money western union.
e-mail the company and ask if you could pay with c.c.
the company will have a reprenative,they will probably be very quick to answer any questions you may have.

many things are a gamble,if the company's site feedback is good. I'd go for it.

a fool and his money are soon parted.

its meaning depends on you

its like people say all the time
"the squeky wheels gets the grease first" no, not for me.
for me the squeaky wheele is the first one replaced

IMO that refers to impulse buyers.
they get some money in thier pocket and it burnes a hole in it.
and those who pay to much


we are over charged for many things,as a people we have lost the feel for what the value of a dollar really is.
look at how much we pay for tv's phones,ect. you can bet it doesnt cost that to make them.

so who is the fool,the one who pays full price,or the one who pays a lesser price for the same product

Like I said before. I made quite a bit of money off that particular site when I was in college. If you think you can buy the kit for that money, pay up. I'll wait here and watch. In the same breath as the price they advertise are assuming that they actually have any of these available? The reputation system on that site is not exactly what you guys think either, this isn't ebay. Don't count on being able to pay via C.C. they say Western Union and thats what they mean. You don't think they are aware that C.C. would be easier? They are well aware of the technology.
