The Hobby Lobby plane is more expensive and out of stock so it's not really an option. I guess I will go to iHobby in Chicago with a little more spending money in October. Enjoy your Stingers and make some videos so I can enjoy the plane through YouTube.
Cheap prices ... come at COST
Out of 54 order from HK, 2 I have done over HK German Warehouse (this avoid pay taxes, and less trouble with local custom office) ... 2 of 2 of order from HK german, end up in a pain
Now they want me to pay 21$ more for shipment, 1 week after my order (all items on stock), since they say, that now they discover they can not fit into one single shipping box all my order
Question : It is my fault if their online shop can't properly calculate which and how many items can fit into 1 shipment for the shown cost ?
Anyhow, if I would be informed 1 day after my order would have been something acceptable, but get a notification 1 week after, it is not ... not only ultra slow, but also they pretend more money.
We all know ...
CHEAP is not for FREE
You pay for what you get
ps: The stinger for my taste is a bit pricy , 100$ from Germany, or 80$ from HK ... the T-45 64mm PnF is way cheaper ...
pps: Still, where I am living there is no local physical hobby shop ... so ... HK at the end is more a constriction then a choice ... anyhow ... 52 of 52 order from China, all did work fine ... so maybe I should not complain much about it
