HobbyKing Pop Ups

Ok thats it! Every last cotton pickin webpage I visit I am bombarded with HobbyKing pop-ups for the "Turnigy 9x"......"The Best Value 9ch System Available!".....AVAILABLE......AVAILABLE.....what a joke not one single blasted 9x has been available ANYWHERE in the western hemisphere since Sep of last year. Leave me alone HobbyKing, lose my IP address and keep my $78 bucks cause is not like I am getting it back anyways....I am NOT "modifying" my order so I guess you will have to deal with the moral dilemma of what to do with a poor man's money.....to my fellow rcgroupers, no need responding, I know I am out of line but just wore out seeing ads for a transmitter that is non-existent and needed to vent.

I'd like to say you get what you pay for, but in this case you didn't get what you paid for.

You have had a 9X on order since Sept? What are they telling you about delivery.

Go to your chg card company and dispute the chg as you never received the goods.

Sounds like you could use a better web browsing experience while you're at it too...

I only get the ads I allow and don't block.

It isn't really Hobby King at fault. HK contracted with a web advertising service that uses algorithims that determine your interests in different things and so the advertiser inserts their ads in web pages as you browse. The advertiser doesn't have a lot of other companies competing for ad space so HK wins the honor most of the time.
The different web sites all get paid to let the advertising service display ads on their websites.

What do HobbyKing say when you contact them about the missing Tx? They have, of course, been selling a steady stream of 9x transmitters. I ordered on myself in November and received it in late December.
I've found HK quite helpful when there was a problem.
