Yeah i like a lot of things from hobbyking but not enough to pay for all the shipping. Sometime the $3 part isnt worth the $4.99 in shipping. I like the local pickup option in washington though. Lucky people.

Someone local to HK could make decent money setting up an ordering and shipping service. Take people's HK orders, pick them up and ship them for less than HK. Still would make money.

I dont drive much mostly just on the weekends when i go flying but last i checked we were at 3.29 here in phoenix az I try to source as much as i can here locally even if it is a little more only because i like supporting local biz. And the fact i can have the item right now is kinda nice.

They have their place at the table, but I think you might have more items in stock based on your videos than they do!

Do you offer bonus points?
