I got my last 2 orders in ~2 weeks, that is about as fast as ever using the cheapest registered shipping (always register ).

When I see something that I want I order ASAP, for the 2 years I've buying from HC, nothing seems to change. Always running out of stuff I want. They never have any TP or Plush ESCs in stock, Hobbypartz don't have any either Finally order from TargetHobby who took 2 months to get me my last order Hope they get it right this time!

I just place my last Christmas order last night, if the last 3 orders are any indication, it will ship next Monday or Tuesday and arrive the following week. Well before Christmas, after this it's got to be EMS to get here before xmas.

Just add an e-mail address to the notification area and as soon as that item is in stock they e-mail you. Don't sit around for days deciding whether to buy or not because popular items sell out again very quickly especially at this time of year. The last 6 orders I have placed have been shipped out in 3 days via registered mail. My problem is Canada customs and Canada Post. My orders arrive in Vancouver usually 5 days after I order then sit there. It takes between 19 and 25 days to get the 300 miles from Vancouver to Edmonton. I suppose if I paid triple the shipping costs Canada post would get my orders to me earlier but I'm cheap.

glad to hear someones getting prompt service from HK........I get real suspicious when these mail order outfits claim to have something in stock, then as you said shows up at your door a couple months later, my thoughts on that would be they were thinking " get the money first" and are merely claiming to have the item in stock but really dont, this may be why the big delay on your order, some outfit pull that crap on me and it would be the last time!

Ya just gotta be patient fellas.

HK is probably the largest distributor of RC anything in the world. And they are dependent on their suppliers. You can't beat their Lipo battery prices.

Yeah I second that.

Soooo many people all around the world are purchasing I guess the same item that is in so much demand stocks seem to run out very quickly.

I have 24 suppliers all over the world and end up making a decision weather to go down to my LHS (about 5 LHS's within 20mins) and paying $5.00 - $15.00 more for an item on the spot and fly the same day or wait a few weeks for an item to be restocked and be grounded.

Lectroglide,

Sounds like you're have a tough go with "Murphys Law". You can't win for losing.
