USA warehouse?

If HobbyKing has a USA warehouse, then why does my order of stuff from the USA warehouse say it is being shipped from Hong Kong? I did not order a plane because the shipping from China was so expensive. So I ordered a motor, speed control, Lipo batts, and some servos because they were in the USA warehouse. I would have expected a 3-4 day delivery. I recently ordered a soldering iron from Amazon for $4.99, free shipping from China and got it in 5 days!

Dunno...a soldering iron including delivery for $4.99? I'd be careful using it..just saying.

As for the US warehouse, yes, they have one. No, you do not buy from there and it ships from HK. In every instance of this I've seen here, it's the user who clicked on the wrong tab and ordered from the Hong Kong Warehouse. Keep in mind all orders are routed through HK's computer system, but US stuff ships from Washington State. Go into your account in the HK site, it will tell you where the stuff is coming from and what method of shipping you agreed to before you hit "pay".

I notice now when I place an order from international it has a checkbox on the first page that says I acknowledge that the items I have ordered are not from my local warehouse. Be interested to see if it's the same for the USA folk now.

Interesting "lead" by the OP "If HobbyKing has a..........".

LOLZ, I just tried to do a test order from international and did not check the "I understand that this order is NOT coming from my local warehouse" box. Won't let me proceed. Flags it in red as a required field.

What's the bet there will still be some that say they ordered thinking it was coming from the local warehouse now that they have put this in place.

Oh I wouldn't take that bet. Not only will there continue to be questions about the "truth" of a US warehouse, people will still swear that they bought from it, but it's sent from elsewhere. Meh.

I have to agree with porcia here. I like the feature as some of the older less tech savvy guys that I fly with ordered from hk and ordered from the international warehouse then complained when it wasn't there 2 days later lol

Checked on my order from the USA warehouse and it is on its way to JFK. I would think PDX would have been a better choice,( I am in Oregon) but maybe the freight goes the Polar route? If the USA warehouse is in Washinton maybe they meant Washington D.C.

Are you saying it's NOT there? Many have indicated they picked their items up there, and when you order the form allows you to indicate pick-up in person.
