    My local hobby shop owner just gave me a heads up about an impending X-Maxx sale.

    I've been in there looking at the X-Maxx 3x a week... and I just bought 2 Mini Revo VXLs and a Revo 2.0...

    He said "real soon" there's going to be a sale on the X-Maxx that is either the truck alone as it's sold now at a discounted price or a package deal with a charger and 2 batteries, also at a discount.

    I trust this guy, so if you're in the market, you might wanna hang tight for a bit.

    Obviously this is to be taken as hearsay and not fact.... but like I said, this guy handles a lot of Traxxas stuff and I do trust him. *shurg*

    Hope it's true for my wallet's sake!

    If it's not breaking, you're not doing it right.

    Well, isn't that just great! I already bought one!

    DJI just did the same thing to me...I just bought the Racing Edition FPV goggles and the Ocusync Air system and today they release an all-in-one system that also controls the craft! The Ocusync just delivered video.

    On the bright side, it was starting to be a headache trying to find a long-range control setup that came as a package. i was going to have to peice the thing together.

    With their new setup, all you need is the servos from what I gather. They claim that the system reaches out 2.5 miles, but that's in the air with clear LOS. I'm guessing ground will be less than half of that, less still when no LOS. Still though...pretty impressive.

    Are you saying that they a going to go sale because there will be a new release of the XMaxx?

    That would suck, they recently release the green and the orange body and the Rock n roll graffiti addition.

    All the people that bought a new truck in the last 18 months will feel taken.

    Like me!!!!! -_

    I can confirm that there is not a pending X-Maxx sale or promotion in the works.

    Thanks for chiming in.

    Maybe they're just having a sale.

    So the X-Maxx IS on sale.... $789. Probably just local...

    He also said he'd do a package deal: 2 Traxxas 4s batteries, Dual Live charger and X-Maxx for $1040.

    So tempted.
