It might help a bit more if you could explain why you feel they are useless? as it is just as frustrating to us to not know why you feel the way you do,maybe someone on here might be able to help you out if you add a little more info.

As far as taking seven days to get to you don't sound to bad at all to me,i take it you got them from the international warehouse in Hong Kong,if so i'd say that was about average postage times but that depends on what postal service you used i guess.

I think they are for 4mm shafts, they are just too big. Need to find a local supplier. Dont have much confidence in hobbyking now, when u prder and pay shipping and have to wait so long for international orders, you expect them to take care in making sure they are sending correct products.

It took 7 days for something to travel half way around the world and that is long? And you're not even sure they are not the right part, just think they are?

Are there any local hobby shops in your area?

Anyone know how long it takes for hobbyking to reply? i dont want to kick off another order, and find they sent me the wrong ones in another 7 days.

Or any one have any recomendations on good sellers of 3mm prop adapters?

Depends where you are located. Any decent hobby shop should have them.

Not sure why he would want to order from Ohio when he is in Aus and wants a local supplier? What does trust have to do with it Dan and seeing as he is asking for options why wouldn't there be a variety of responses?

Sorry Mark,

I was just trying to stick to (and help) the OP rather than get sucked into a back and forth that most of these posts seem to devolve into.

I think he needs to get to his local hobby shop and grab one. They should be able to at least get one in if they don't have any in stock.
