Default GrandRC is letting 500EFL Pro Combos go for cheap!

$599!! Just ordered with satellites, carry bag, and a few other odds and ends and it came out to $734! If you're looking to buy, act now.

It's $859- I would bet it was an error, unless you have link cause I don't see it. I hate to say it but I doubt you will get that sale fulfilled, although I'm rootin for you.

Here's a jpeg image of the email I got today from GrandRC

They apparently are selling the ICE2 120HV for a sweet price as well.

Dunno? Although I don't have the $$$ to buy one I still can't get the price, I log in at the homepage, or at checkout sane price. I can say that is below dealer cost but grand rc has an edge as an align distributor and a retail shop. Get em while you can- amazing price!

That is insane. I don't understand how GrandRC can sell this kit for that amount of money. He is losing money on the deal. The dealer cost for this kit is around $633 so he is losing 34 bucks per kit. Wassup with that??

Come to think of it, I don't even get my order emails from grandrc. I have even logged on to my ISP's email and they are not in the spam folder. Perhaps my account is so old it wasn't ported to their new website properly or my ISP is blocking that domains emails for some reason. I'll have to get that resolved so I am in these email blasts in the future.

Not too long ago, they changed things around and you had to create a new account. Maybe try creating a new account?

Even still, he can't be making very much money at all. Obviously his motives for doing this can not involve making a profit

Will you still get the 10% discount for 1st time buyer?

This is the lowest T-Rex 500efl I have seen!

Grand pricing policy is strange to say the least. Today I was going to buy 106.00 worth of parts and I changed my mind after shipping was going to be 12.00 for 1.5pds. It's either feast or famine over there. I've never had a service issue but that 1pd shipping always gets me upset to the point of canceling my order and shopping elsewhere.

They're sold out now. I just checked my order and it's on hold due to me mismatching my shipping billing addresses. I recently moved companies and forgot to update the billing address. I sent an email with the corrections but I imagine since it's the weekend, no one will be in until Monday. Hope I still get it.
