Just curious if anyone knows anything. This is NOT a political discussion please.

Hey Bill! Most of the birds I buy are out of China. So I’m guessing a 10% bump up?

I'm betting not,china has more to loose then we do in the tariff talks.The US is their biggest trading partner,thier economy is going south in a hurry.Companies are leaving china in large numbers now.I think they have bigger fish to fry, then to worry about a small market toy airplanes price increase.If it means getting more business and more manufacturing back in the US,then I'm all for the tariffs.Even if it ends up we do pay more for ARF's,I don't think 10% more in price is going to stop most guy's from buying.You either pay or don't fly,no sense in worrying about something we have no control over.
