    Who has the best price/sale for Spektrum DX7

    Im looking to pick a new Spektrum DX7(airplane version) within the month and want to know which website has the best price or sale. So far the best deal I found was on Advantage Hobby, the price is $349.99 with a 5% discount for new customers. After the 5% off it comes out to 332.49 with free shipping. Can anyone top this deal. Thanks

    RE: Who has the best price/sale for Spektrum DX7

    You're not going to find a whole lot of variation in the price of these radios. Horizon makes the dealers stick to a pretty tight price range. If you have a really good relationship with your LHS owner, you could possibly get a better deal. Otherwise, I'd go with that one, as it sounds like a good price.
    I got mine for 330 from LHS, but that was one of the good ol' boy prices...

    You can try to find one on ebay without servos - sometimes people break up the kits and sell off the pieces

    How's this? Ultimate is a great store to deal with.

    BTW, they have free shipping on orders over $150.

    I have bought lots of stuff from Ultimate Hobbies, you should get free shipping with that order too. They are good to deal with!

    Or take a look at the Airtonics RDS8000 with (2) Rx's for $229.99 and free shipping from Hobby People. It is a super featured radio that can do everything you want and then some.

    RE: Who has the best price/sale for Spektrum DX7

    Ebay had 30% cashback up until last night with Live.com.... you could have bought it for $350 and in 60 days gotten back $105 making it 245. I did this 2 months ago when the promotion was on and I bought 3 of them. sold 2 and got 300 in cashback.... only ended paying I think 50 for my DX7 package (this is not illegal, ebay specifically states that they don't care what you do with your items bought).

    Cashback is now 20%

    Directions:

    goto www.live.com
    search for key term "wii"
    on the top you will see "Live Search Casback...BuyWii. You may get 20% back..."

    Click the link and it will take you to ebay. now you can search for anything and if you meet the criteria, you will get 20% back in 60 days from microsoft.

    Criteria: Auction has to be a BUY IT NOW auction and you must pay through paypal. Like I said, I did this 2 months ago when they had 30% and already got my money back. No worries, when you click it the buy it now button, it tells you how much cash back you will get. So you know that particular auction qualifies for cashback.

    RE: Who has the best price/sale for Spektrum DX7

    Im suprised they have this on thier site for this price. The lowest ADVERTISED price is $349.Wonder how they do that.

    I could sell this in my store for $319 but not sure the cost of shipping this item. That is if its done in store with cash so i dont have all the Credit card processing fees. But anything around $330 is a great price shipped.

    They get away with this because the price only shows up after you add it to your "cart" to purchase, so it's not an "advertised" price. HeliProz.com does the same thing on their website to get around MAP pricing.

    Yes, A couple months ago EVERYTHING in the hobby business was cheaper. Prices have been on the rise. See if they still have them at that price. I would be very suprised if they STILL do. If so thats a great deal.

    RE: Who has the best price/sale for Spektrum DX7

    Those screen captures of the prices were made 2 minutes before I posted them on Oct. 6th.

    I've noticed Horizon's ARF prices rising dramatically, but haven't noticed any increase in radio equipment prices. I wouldn't be surprised, though.

    I second the motion for Todd's hobby at $309. I have bought from them many times with complete satisfaction and lower than anyone on price. Besides they are very fast with the shipping.

    That doesn't include shipping. The total is $325.80 including shipping for me here in PA. Ultimate's price of $324.95 includes shipping (free on orders over $150).

    RE: Who has the best price/sale for Spektrum DX7

    I've ordered thousands of dollars of stuff from Donald. He'll give you some of the best pricing around. Don't just look at what he has on his site, send him an e-mail or a sales inquiry listing the stuff you need. He'll get back to you shortly with your pricing. The more you order, the more he discounts the items. You'll like doing business with Donald Neisler. Tell him John sent you!!

    Wow that Donalds website is a really good deal. Its funny how a simple post is going to save me about $60 since I was planning on ordering through Horizonhobby. Thanks guys for all the info. Hopefully they stay at those prices till the 15th when I can hit the submit button.

    Since we are on the topic of finding really good deals, who has the best prices for Saito Engines, specifically the 1.00, 1.15, or 1.25 size. Thanks again.

    RE: Who has the best price/sale for Spektrum DX7

    Dont rule out the heli version. I was able to pick one up for $20 less than the airplane version. The heli version will work just fine for planes. I dont own any helis. I believe the difference is 1 more switch on the heli version or it has a 3way toggle?? I dont recall. All of our club members that I have seen using a DX7 are running the heli version. All you have to do to get it to work with planes is switch to acro rather than heli and your on your way to setup. Its a fantastic radio. All my planes are being switched over to 2.4.
