OKAY OKAY!!! I know that is a silly notion.
But Ken at Performance Hobbies used to (I mean 8 years ago) give me a damn fine discount if I ordered several hundred buck worth at a time. Like $400 to $500 or more.

Anyone do that these days? Just askin'

Frank would do that for me when Tweety Bird was on the playa. Still burning thru my stash. Can't find those deals any more.

Try asking Robert or Gloria from AMW. They vend onsite at Lucerne for all the ROC launches. I've had many great experiences with them. I assume you fly there since your profile says you are located in California and you posted a question on the email chat. AMW Website

To answer your question on the email chat, I usually buy motors from Wildman during the thanksgiving sales. Great prices at 30-40% off. If I need motors sooner, Balsa Machining Service pre-order price is pretty good at 25% off. 3 month wait though. For smaller hobbyline motors, Wildman club price is great. This is for Aerotech reloads. If you are talking about buying CTI, Wildman club price is the best I know of, but I could be very wrong, since I fly mainly Aerotech. AMW also has good prices on CTI, and you could skip hazmat by picking up motors at the ROC launches. I've bought all my CTI reloads from AMW to save on shipping and hazmat.
