At first I was sceptical at committing myself to purchase from Hobby Paradise, but after reading these threads I ordered a Freewing servoless tail wheel. The package arrived safe and sound within 8 days from ordering (to Malta Europe ) and as stated by other purchasers , the package was excellent, and the address very clear . * * * * * 5 stars from me.

Again I ordered another electric tail wheel from Hobby Paradise and this arrived today Monday . It was ordered exactly a week ago. Not bad at all in fact it is fantastic. Keep up the good work H/Paradise.

I must say that I tested Hobby Paradise's comittment to service and they came through. I had a faulty motor on my FMS Zero that I purchased through them. I advised them of this and they put it to FMS who wanted a video and photo's which I supplied. The result was a replacement motor and while this decision may have been made by FMS, Hobby Paradise followed it through to get a good result.

Hello, this is my first post here.

I would like a little reassurance about Hobby Paradise. They want my birth date when registering. Are you sure these guys are legitimate? It makes me nervous giving out that info.

They have some parts that I can't find anywhere else. I wish they would take PayPal.

Thanks in advance.

No problem, just give them a false birth date.

Thanks for the advice. I guess they do take PayPal. I placed an order for the propellers that I need for a FlyFly Hobby plane. I'll give a follow up when I know more.

I have ordered from Hobby Paradise several times ; bought Nx3 gyros at 1/2 the price as Nitro, also parts for a FMS plane, last a T-34 that I have been looking for quite a while . Prices are good and everything was airmailed (HONG KONG postage) and fairly quick at affair price.

I am glad to confirm everyone else's claims about Paradise Hobby Hong Kong.

http://www.hobby-paradise.com/

These guys are awesome! I received my order faster than Hobby King's USA warehouse!

I ordered the items on July 7 and they arrived today, July 11! Exactly as described.

I did give them a birth date that wasn't exactly mine but that's because I was uneasy about them knowing that detail about me.

Buy with confidence from them.

Now I just need to figure out how to keep this plane in the air. I got some extra props for the FlyFly Hobby Micro P51d because I broke the two that it came with. They seem to be very brittle and might have too much pitch for the motor/ESC to drive the prop adequately. But that's another story.

Just another follow up. I have placed a second order with Hobby-Paradise Hong Kong. Again, they have shipped the order and it will arrive quicker than HobbyKing's USA warehouse. I still like HobbyKing but I give props (pun intended) to Hobby Paradise Hong Kong.

One of the items I needed was a replacement motor for my FMS Easy Trainer 800. I bought the plane from MotionRC but they did not have the motor in stock. H-P Hong Kong had it in stock and the price was competitive even with the shipping cost.

Great company with great service.

Their site is still up and I "need" to order. I'll give them a shot tomorrow and report back.

Just another bit of positive feedback for Hobby Paradise.

Placed an order for some spares on the 11th. It was shipped the same day and it was delivered in the UK 5 days later, on the 16th!

That's better than what most UK retailers can manage unless you pay for expedited shipping.

As an added bonus, the total for the order plus shipping was still significantly lower than what I would have had to pay at a UK retailer.

I can also testify to their excellent service. Have ordered 3 different planes and numerous parts separately. Sent usually same or next day by fast shipping, well packed and good pricing.
