    I was able to pick one up on meh.com for $300 a few weeks ago. It's the second time I've seen it show up on meh.com in the last two months. They didn't sell out on that day so I expect it will show up again in the future.

    Wow that's crazy for 300 I might pick one up to switch over to 2.4 from my fc40 and I can just use the fc40 for parts. I was gonna switch for the 5.8 fpv but wasn't sure it was worth the hassle of getting new TX n rx till now

    Welcome to the party BruinGuy. :)

    I went there, meh.com, saw that and am still laughing. It's like the corner store, if you show up while we're here, maybe you will buy what we have. You buy it, it's yours. I'm still laughing. Guess I'll keep an eye on that little shop. :D:D

    Thanks for sharing. Here's something for you, it's an easy way to find things here.

    The guys at Meh.com made their fortune by starting Woot.com and selling it to Amazon.

    I bought one at the end of April for $350, about 40 days ago. Just emailed them to see if they would be willing to credit me the difference. Will report back...

    @Cerone I know someone that bought it 5 days before the sale and they have them a credit. Not sure about 40 days though :) good luck!

    I paid $400 then the price dropped to $379 a few days later and B&H refunded me the difference. When it dropped to $350 they refused. Now it's $300, how low will it go? Noticed that the free battery bonus is no longer offered now, but B&H changes it's deals on bonus items and free shipping frequently so maybe they will offer it again in the future.

    Tempted to buy another but I already have two. If it goes down to $250 with a bonus battery I won't be able to pass it up.

    When I ordered mine on 6-11-15 it was $299 with extra Watson battery and AAs and charger for TX and free shipping.
    I also asked them why one day it can say free shipping and a day later it's different and also any bonus stuff. He said whenever you see that, be sure to call them. I guess they can work around that. Every time I have ordered they were very nice, answered my questions, and shipped when they said they would. I guess sometimes Peter does not know what Paul is doing as far as the site pricing. I have seen things change in 6 hours. .
    My first in April 2014 was $479. Second in Jan of 2015 was $379 and now my third at $299. I like the trend.
