    Trex 150 DFC

    I have just seen the price for the second batch of stocks in the UK, 2 shops have reduced the price to 170, that's a bit of a gutter for those that bought one last week.

    Wow. May also be an indication of lower demand than they were anticipating. Bad word of mouth on crash resilience and some factory QC issues started making the rounds almost immediately after the initial batch were hitting people's hands.

    hmmm, well, if the price is reasonable, I may consider getting one....after improvements have been made, of course.

    Well the first batch in the UK did not meet full pre order demand with most stores, but yes to drop the price by nearly 10% in a week, WOW, all I can think is they are trying to get the people who thought it was just a little too expensive.

    Or maybe a lot of people over here complained due to the fact you need to buy a means of charging and a sat receiver

    Sat rx was pretty well known from the jump. IT was a major selling point that spektrum flyers just had to throw a sat on and they were set. The charging situation is unfortunate. For the price they should definitely be throwing at least one of those cheapo e-flight type slow chargers in there. I'm very surprised on that one, especially as a holiday gift possibility. "Oh boy! A new 150! Thanks!" 10 minutes later... "Where's the effin' charger? .... What the %$**!" And then you're grounded for a week trying to figure out how to charge the thing.

    I have always had first class service off him, fair play. Nice to see Align held the shipment back to do some alterations, I hope you get a really good bird now mate.
