    Ebay:

    They both charge shipping to Spain.

    Baba's price is 125,33€ + 0,86€ shipping

    ShowZ's price is 127,37€ + 2,28€ shipping.

    Totals, Baba: 126.19€, ShowZ: 129,65€

    The diference is even less than what i pointed before: 3,46€ which are 3,79$

    Wow. It’s strange the difference. And sucks they both charge shipping for you. I imagine none of the other options will be cheaper though? Australiagets hit with shipping and markups for most things but at least shipping from China is cheap (cause it’s so close. )

    Well compared to UK based shops who charge me 15£ for shipping..

    Baba and Showzs always get my money, usually they are the cheapest or a really small diferece, easy to work with, good comunication. Maybe ShowZs put a little bit more care on the packaging but they both are great sellers.

    Curious that the prices change depending at where you are when buying items.

    I also live in Spain...having to pay more for the same product really sucks, but what's even worse is to not be able to use those ebay sale discounts because of my destination address. It really pisses me off :mad:

    I've only gone and ordered this after saying I wouldn't. Price was right and I can always sell it on if I don't like it. I will probably keep it though as I'm a hoarder... Still things I don't like about it, but also stuff I prefer over Eligos. I guess I will have a Cyclonus and an 'Armada' after all...

    LOL at that one guy who preordered this from Baba for 172.99. The drop to 144.99 must have hurt.

    Baba lowered his price by around $30 yesterday. If there is a flash sale this month, I can combine that with my ebay bucks and his $5 discount and beat $140 pretty easily.

    You can just use Buy-It-Now right now to beat $140 with $5 of every $120. LOL

    True but I'm a patient man. The figure isn't out yet anyway. Might as well wait for a flash sale.

    No as far as i am concerned, Kapow and Tf Express (both reliable and good shops) have it more expensive than Baba or Showzs, wihtout adding the shipping. That said i think you have a flat rate or free shipping if you are at UK.

    Baba has it for $144.88 now. Actually $139.44 shipped now with his automatic $5 off. Knock aff an additional 15%-20% if you but during the next Ebay flash sale.

    But I can't handle it. FT29, GT Copter, XTB Skids, XTB wildrider and XTB Ollie. I can't tell my wife I order 5 bots in a month (not to mention FT28 later this month). What is a reasonable number to order which won't piss my wife off and which ones should I wait? But what if it is 20% off.....................

    Man, a 20% flash sale is long overdue.
