I want to buy a Fokke Dr1 Triplane.\preferably the Parkzone as it seems to be better built than Flyzone.Problem is, the plane is $79 but the postage to Israel a whopping $179.So I started searching AliBaba for Chinese models.Postage is often free to Israel.Then I want to see if anyone on YT has tried them.here is the list\;

Alibaba is a wholesale vendor. You may get your plane cheap, but you'll have to order a few thousand of them.
Yes, I've known that I'm "different" for some time now...

Well, I got a reply from one with a 4ch Corsair.They will often send one sample .And it is cheap.The choice in large Nitro powered planes is impressive.Fortunately I've just found a supplier in Israel.Not cheap because of import duties but reliable.

If you are close to the boarder, sometimes a close friend in another country can get what you want a lot cheaper. The import tax in some of the countries around your area is 300%. Good luck!!! Have you tried scratch building a plane?
