That's great to hear. It's great that we have so many vendors our there that are able to keep this hobby within economic reach of everyone. huge selection.

Frank, if you haven't seen it yet, you'll note that no matter how great of an experience you have, others will come in here with doom and gloom. Oh the service is horrible, their pricing structure is a "lure", and boy you better not have any CS problems. Take some advise though and do your own research. There are plenty of people who have had good and bad experiences with MANY vendors, including Tower, Horizon, Hobby Lobby, just to name a few. Even 3DHS is getting complaints lately. Also, not all customer service experiences will be bad, but some might. Keep in mind the volume this company does too. And as always, you pretty much get what you pay for. Their Durafly Vampire is one of the best planes I've ever flown, and yet their Cloudsky AXN floater was a huge disappointment. But then again, it was a RR plane for $50.00. Perspective.

Keep in mind almost any HK thread will eventually degenerate into a love/hate thing.

That is completely accurante, and balanced and reasonable advice that works with any vendor purchase. Also, try to back your PP purchase up with a credit card so you have two layers of protection.
