That's a pretty strong statement there. I'd hate to say it, but if it's all garbage, you wouldn't be looking and complaining about their stuff. I've bought a lot of stuff, mostly lipos at the USA warehouse and I've enjoyed the great shipping rates, and fast shipping. Anyways, it's your $$$, if you don't like their stuff, shop elsewhere, it's a free country.

My understanding of the original warehouse setups was to enable containers of stuff that's normally difficult to ship to be sent to that country in one hit (customs, shipping) and then easily shipped internally around that that country. For example LiPo's and large boxed items. I think they threw in the common sellers where they could. I don't think the intention was to ever stock every item in the warehouses and I doubt they ever will. There is nothing stopping customers from buying the rest of the "garbage" as you so elequently put it from the international warehouse.

Sorry lectroglide, but this "garbage" has kept me in the air and kept money in my pockets for the last 5 years or so, and I sometimes get offended when people can't stay away, but keep bad mouthing as well.

Really though, for anyone that reads this thread, if you think HobbyKing is really that bad, "garbage", take your business somewhere else, vote with your wallet. Buy from your LHS, buy from HobbyLobby, advantagehobby, scorpion, Hacker, thunderpower, Hyperion, ...etc your choices are endless, but don't keep torturing yourself and continue to buy from HK and complain day in and day out. It makes absolutely no sense.

IMHO....I dont believe its fair to lecture somebody for complaining about a subpar product or poor service experience. The message sent by that sentiment will discourage others from posting on this FORUM. This is supposed to be a Vendor Talk forum, somewhere to share your shopping experience,whether good OR bad. I believe the forum readers, as well as the vendors, are smart enough to wade through less than legitimate claims.

Not really directed towards OP, but, I'm just annoyed and sick of all the new daily drama in the vendor section about HK. It's like the boyfriend/husband that is really really bad, but the girlfriend/wife can't seem to leave scenario. Can't leave, but yet complain and badmouth day in and day out. Again, IMO, if it's really that bad, shop elsewhere and don't torture yourself with HK. If you choose to shop there, go by HK's rule and don't expect more than that and you'll be happy.
