    More than 'Pocket money'.

    Hello one & all,

    Just saw this on Ebay......can't beleive my eyes!!!

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Saitek-Pro...-/160565863582

    I know some items for the cockpit are more than 'pocket money' BUT these guys take the biscuit.

    Seasons greetings, and I hope that you all have by now sent your wish-list to Santa.

    Fingers crossed!

    JP.

    I would hate to think someone would pay that much.... 999.95 that's about 100.00 over priced. WOW!!!

    Matt,

    I have seen those pedals priced between 140.00 and 210.00 ( USD$ 220.00 - 344.00 )
    NOT 999.95 = USD$1,564.00!!

    Just a bit more than O U C H !!!!

    Perhaps sold out everywhere and these guys caught onto the idea and in the hope of making money during the festive season from desperation, but just a guess.

    Just to clear this up for you guys, they do this when there is no stock but still want to advertise their product. This is completely normal for ebay!

    Guys don't you think you are overdoing the criticism? In your haste to jump on this seller's back, you failed to notice that he's shipping them for free!

    Re: More than 'Pocket money'.

    Seems crazy to me.. Shipping can't be 8 times the cost of item. They would never sell the item. Would be easier to bury the cost of the shipping (keep it hidden) till someone inquires. How many F-16 sims out there anyway? LOL last one I saw was Lockon and that was like 4-5 years ago now. Old sim new rudders.. Unless you're flying an F-16 in FSX or X-Plane in which case you are taking 60% of the fun out of it with non combat capability. 1000lbs for non combat pedals um... don't think so. They would have to rip them out of an F-16 for that money and then perhaps have a chat with US Gov about selling them on Ebay.. LOL

    Cheers
