Just wanted to let everybody know about a new online reseller:Tower Hobbies carries a few select Thunder Tiger ARFs and most of TT's aircraft engines, but little else. eHobbies.com used to carry a fairly large selection of Thunder Tiger items, but they're in the middle of an overhaul and their RC inventory is (at least temporarily) considerably limited in quantity.
I ran acrosswhile googling for places selling the TT Pro .46 engine. They have very good prices on TT engines (as good or better pricing than Tower Hobbies) and a terrific selection of Thunder Tiger glow and electric ARFs. They also had the extra drive shafts in stock that I needed for my Giles 202 EP Profile.
I built my first ARF this summer, a Thunder Tiger Tiger Stick .40 that I ordered from Tower, and I've been having a blast with it. The Giles 202 EP Profile has been terrific fun so far as well. I love Thunder Tiger's products, but they're not usually stocked by my local hobby stores and my favorite LHS says he can't order from ACE Hobby because he no longer has an account there (hence the Tower order).
A few gems I found while browsing the thundertiger4u site:
$146 for the F-54S Four-Stroke Engine, $172 for the F-90S Four-Stroke Engine $120 for the Giles 202 .40 ARF $150 for the Tiger Trainer MkII with GP .42 engine combo $230 for the Rare Bear .60 ARF
The web site also has hundreds of parts available. All I had to do was enter the item number from my manual for the drive shaft assembly (AS6355) and up it popped at $5.16. The accept payment by PayPal as well as Visa or Mastercard.
The website is fairly new and it isn't perfect by any means. The Cloud Dancer .40 and .60 ARFs are listed under park flyers instead of Aerobatic or Sport. They don't yet offer my beloved Tiger Stick .40. Shipping is apparently by UPS only. Still, it's nice to find a site offering a variety of Thunder Tiger products at fairly aggressive prices.
If you like Thunder Tiger products but you're having trouble finding them, you might do worse than to give thundertiger4u.com a shot at your business. If anybody reading this has another favorite source for Thunder Tiger airplanes or flight equipment, please share it in this thread!
