Hey, anytime you find deals too good to be true, then expect some fallout. A few weeks ago, I saw an HK ad for an Orange 6 channel Rx that was an incredible $3.99 (they only let me order one though). Also saw one for a low battery alarm which was $2.99. I ordered 1 Rx and 2 of the alarms. I took bout 12 days for the stuff to arrive, but so far all are working OK. Having been in business for 20 years from 1973 to 1993, I know how important customer service is, that is why I won't buy complete planes from HK, Banana Hobby, or NitroPlanes. I prefer to stick with companies like Hobbico and Horizon Hobby. But then, to me, paying a little extra for those products doesn't matter. If you want to stay in the hobby and HK, HB and NP are all you can afford, then great, just be prepared to suck it up when something happens. Otherwise, stick with companies with more reputable customer service, period.
