The signs were on the walls for over a year. Fast service and when you emailed you got a reply. I bought several parts orders at great prices. Quads/ clones/ economy/ plus decline with helis to bad. Traffic on mini and large helis is close to dead. Heli hay ride is over to some degree.

They dropped Walkera quite some time ago. However, it would probably have been even worse for all as even Amazon is now selling Walkera. The model shops that thrive have switched onto mid to high-end multi-rotors. But that takes much more investment and risk as the prices are much higher. For example, the Walkera Tali H500 RTF sells at $1899

Apparently, Walkera is doing quite well with the Tali H500. If you look at Banggood's website, they have sold 42 of these $1899 systems even though it is carried by quite a number of other vendors. Walkera has set up a physical subsidiary in the US for its higher end multi-rotors . DJI is not known for good servicing either.

I first bought from Club heli two years ago. Even back them there was alot of out of stock items. As time passed even more so. I know parts are hard to keep up with. I ordered what he had and that worked fine. Fast shipping and complete orders. With market of clones over flow small outfits are doomed. Helis have declined and quads have replaced them with noobs. My entry into helis came at optimal time with helis.
