Default No more good sales on Helidirect

How come theres no more 10% off on holiday sales? I see mikado has more sales now than helidirect. Looks like their going down hill. I guess theres not that much money on the fpv market.

HD still offers great service, but you are correct. They have been very stingy with sale promotions for the past couple of years.

They just had 20% off Pulse batteries for Presidents Day. That's a pretty good discount. I picked up six new 6 cell 45C and saved a bunch.

Cheers

Yes. HD still has occasional promotions. The recent President's Day discount promotions did not apply to all the items; the Pulse batteries discount did not apply to all Pulse batteries.

Several years ago, HD would email a 5% discount code if you had items in the cart for more than 10 days or so. The discount would increase to 10% after several weeks. They also would have storewide 10% off promotions on just about every holiday in addition to the customary 15% off on 4th of July and 15-20% off on Black Friday. Nowadays, HD is much more conservative with their discount promotions. They don't offer storewide discount promotions as often; their discount promotions are more often for select items.

Amain offers one time use discount codes just about every month. Esprit Model offers 11% off discounts on most of their stock items on just about every weekend. Experience RC and Mikado USA tend to offer 10% discounts on most of the stock items on an average of every other holiday.

Again, HD still offers great customer service. They just don't offer discount promotions as often as other vendors.

I agree, Amain has won more of my business due to this.

Im sure HD is loosing a lot of customers. To bad Amain charges tax where I live. So I dont buy there that much, but customer is great also. They gave me 10% for just a phone call. The only thing I see HD is good is if you own Goblins. Since they carry the most goblin parts, but Im flying Logo's now. So I dont spend money there no more.

That's a shame. I have a similar issue happen to me when Amazon decided to open a distribution center here in Maryland. Now I have to pay sales taxes on Amazon items.
