I placed a small order last Wednesday the 25th with priority mail shipping. My paypal account has been charged, but I have not received my order, no email updates, nothing. I called this evening and they were closed for the day. I will call again tomorrow during regular hours. At this point I would suggest not ordering from their website directly. I will update this thread as things progress, I am just venting a bit as this is a bit frustrating.

Called 3 times today. Never got to speak to a human. 1st call went right to voicemail where I could hear people taking in the background?? Called back 2 more times. Recorded message said all associates were busy...then it rang, then back on hold, then it rang.. back on hold, then voicemail. Left a message 3rd try. Guess I may be the last [Hobby Lobby] customer ever, based on their lack of activity here as well I consider them out of business. Paypal dispute to be filed Monday if I don't get a call back. Time to move on. I used to read their catalogs (over and over!!) as a kid. It's a shame what's happening to this industry and our country.

I read about that here, nothing about it on their website. ...but they should not be taking people's money if they cannot ship. My money is in their paypal account. It's been there for 10 days now. It's a bad way of doing business.

No return call from Hobby Express. No product received.. No activity from them here in their own forum. Filed a dispute through paypal. In 10 years of flying R/C and ordering online from many vendors this is the 1st problem I've ever had. It's a small amount of money so not a huge deal, but the principle is the same.

Buyer Beware.

Well I'm gonna write them off. Too many issues. Yeah yeah so they are moving. At this point that doesn't excuse them from stealing .. errr .... accepting payment and then doing nothing. Will take a LONG time to get past this one when it goes this south. Sorry Hobby Lobby, you were good and I liked you but Hobby Express is a differenct company with different ethics so ... bye bye Hobby Express. You won't be in business much longer. Kind of hard to pay the bills when you don't sell anything eh?

Hobby Express has not even responded to the paypal dispute I filed. They seem to be missing in action. Agreed, it's time to write them off.

Paypal closed my claim and refunded my money . Not a word from Hobby Express, at least not to me. They just lost another customer forever. There is no excuse for this.
