That extreme shipping charge is why their prices have always been good. They've always had extremely high shipping rates. They also used to hit you hard if you paid with a credit card. The only way I used to get better pricing with them than from other sources was with purchase orders for schools.

5x7- The fins on the Executioner are shorter than those on the Maxi Alpha. You will have to make new ones.

Shipping increases at $50, $100, and $200. Order 3 C12 25-ct bulk packs, and including shipping, it comes out to $2.47/motor. That's the best price I've found on Q-Jets anywhere. My last order with them took a few weeks to receive - no idea why, actual shipping only took 2-3 days.

The spirals are visible only if I look very closely. Not visible even a few inches away - that shiny red pattern is far too distracting to see spirals!
