GetFPV online store.. Any good?

Hi everyone

I ordered from these guys but im disappointed in their non replies to my emails and their tracking sucks really. Readymade and others update the tracking in a day or so. This one is still showing as "notified for pickup". I ordered and paid on the 6th of March.

Should i deal with these guys in future?

I dealt with them just once,But I emailed them on a Sunday,Got a reply monday. Then later that week I put a order in friday,got email with order confirmation,then soon after that a shipping confirmation with tracking. It showed up monday. This is my only time dealing with them,but I cant complain. Based on my order I would shop again. Bummer you had a bad experience,but maybe more while chime in.

I accidentally ordered the wrong product from them once, I wanted their lens protector for gopro2 but accidentally ordered the gopro3 protector. I emailed them in the evening and the next morning they responded and fixed my order. They were friendly and I ordered from them another time without any problems

I've ordered from them and had good service,order shipped quick (usa) and tracking worked fine.
Been using their dvr and it works fine for me,got one of their camera cases and put a PZ0420 in it and other than it being a metal case and a bit more heavy than just using the board cam the case works good,i'll do business with them in the future.

Getfpv is my go to shop. Tim is really great and he is an active poster on this site if I'm not mistaken. I've done most of my ordering through them and I'm super satisfied. I tend to order everything overnight delivery, so I can't say anything has ever come late.

4 orders and no problems at all. They replaced a defective (scratched) product for me quickly with no hassles.

Never had to email them, but the two times I've ordered from them I have gotten my order amazon prime fast. Just wish they carried more of what I need.

Get FPV is a fairly large vendor. Probably the third largest FPV specific vendor in the World. For a business their size, their support is very good.

getfpv

I've been waiting to see if someone else would bring this up or if it was just me.
Even though I live in Florida, I've had serious shipping issues with this company. First order went all around Fl from their store in Sarasota to West Palm Beach (South) into Orlando (Central) then up to Jacksonville (North) over 10 days of scuttling. You'd think I'd learn but no, I placed 2 more orders that took nearly as long. After getting oh well ho hum answers from both getfpv and the USPS I decided to try RangeVideo down in Miami. 2 days to get order to front door! Dunno, might be where I live but still... RMRC and RV have exclusive products that have very high ratings and Hobby Wireless is another shop I'm very pleased with.
So MAYBE if you live far enough away from getfpv, you'll getfpv in a timely manner.
They do supply updated tracking but it didn't help me - only made me growl watching my packages bounce around Florida.
In comparison to other 6 fpv companies in U.S. I deal with - I'd rate them 1 out of 5 for shipping. I wouldn't do business with them again.

Look back at thread date March http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2119683

Ordered my Taranis as soon as I got the in stock notification, and had a tracking number the next day. Had the radio in my hands 4 days after ordering.

I'll use them again
