I received an order yesterday that I didn't even place until today!

How is that even possible?

LOL.....
Just amazed at how fast things get here sometimes .I order from Tower and they've delivered 2 days after ordering from their Reno Nevada warehouse usually with free shipping to boot but then that's a lot closer than HK or even Washington..

Now now Craig, be nice. I thought you didn't want anything to do with HK threads anymore?

My last few orders have all taken around the 1 week from order to arrival. Last one was for 2 x KK2 controllers, some velcro straps and a program cable. Strangely enough it all turned up, all works and the box was actually a box. I hear some are getting stuff delivered in rice paper with rocks and bricks thrown in.

Very nice. My orders seem to be showing up quicker than they used to and even better packed. Placing another order when I get home tomorrow and I will update when it arrives!

I ordered some wheels 2 weeks ago, they got the order out in 2 days. I went el cheapo shipping, so I expect the freight time to be slow. Last order took them a week to ship, so maybe things are changing.

What if all the griping that was rampant over the last few months hit home and HK is cleaning up their act? If that's the case, that would be good news.

Er, no. My order came in the mail today. I ordered a 5 pack of foam tires, they are nice. Also ordered a 10 pack of xcato blades. They just threw the plastic container in the box, the box was not sealed. So I got 4 blades and a plastic box. Customer service wanted picks and details sent to them. I told Cheryl to simply give me points for the .99 or I'll file a PayPal claim. Nothin doing. Obviously I'm not going to file a claim for .99, but it kinda pissed me off. It's not like it was big money. At least they shipped it quickly this time.

I wish they would work some of this so called magic on my order. I've had a bixler setup on order for eight days and it hasn't even shipped yet....

Glad your first post is here You are going to love your bixler! I also reccomend the axn clouds fly. Both are fantastic planes from hobbyking and both are perfect for fpv.

That's not very likely.
