Hmmm.. PERHAPS they're just an affiliate, but lemon-rx has some interesting wording...

contact us:
Location: B1, No.253, Songshou Rd., Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan

OK, so shipping might be spendy and take a long time...

but then there is this under terms and conditions:


Our Terms and Conditions comply with UK legislation, including the Distance Selling Regulations and are designed to ensure that all our customers can shop easily and with confidence with RC Hobby Centre. As such, any disputes shall be adjudicated according to the laws of England and Wales.


who is RC Hobby Centre? I googled that and found this:

Our Terms and Conditions comply with UK legislation, including the Distance Selling Regulations and are designed to ensure that all our customers can shop easily and with confidence with RC Hobby Centre. As such, any disputes shall be adjudicated according to the laws of England and Wales.



it MAY be completely innocent, Lemon-RX may be an affiliate (or vice versa)
I'd check how much they charge for shipping, and would also give you an idea if there's anyone watching their customer service. (that may well make their prices seem not so cheap anymore)
Buyer Beware...

I think they saw the success of the orange rx (fruit), so lemon it is.

Their rx has been used by a handful here and they swear by it...just do a search for that thread.

I took a look a while back and I found the rx without pins especially interesting. it's lightweight (1.5gm) and it's like $5- not sure what shipping is though.

When compared to HK's lightest DSM2 ($9.99), the lemon is a pretty good value...well if weight is important.

The LemmonRx recently caught my eye and I found this thread to be quite interesting. The thread gets better from the second page on after a rep from the LemonRx starts posting.

It seems the Lemon, despite the name, performs quite well and the price is amazingly cheap. The shipping to the US is a little over $3 per order and arrives in a couple of weeks. I can't seem to find any downside.

you can't beat $3 per shipment. I bought a bunch from target hobby a while back and shipping was like $5 each...and I think it got a bit cheaper after the 3 one.l

In what way was it DOA? I have ordered so far 25 of them and haven't had one DOA.
For the price and the fact that they can ship without the pins soldered is great. I don't see Targethobby doing that.
