Question
Blue Wonder

Guys,

I've been doing searches on the 1300kv 24 gram hextronik "blue wonder" motor and I can't find a vendor in the USA I could order from.

Does anybody know of one?

Thanks for your help,

amigo

The cheapest one. The ems shipping is only one or two days faster.
Just make sure whatever you order is in stock, or it may go on back order for quite a while.

Yes as Mayday said, make sure they have a few in stock before you order.

UH is slow for me again, all items in stock, yet it's been a week and the order is still "processing".

Lazertoyz(?) also has them, but why not just get them direct from UH.
"Posting" means it's been shipped. I've only ordered from them once, so far, but shipping was pretty good in my opinion 11 days.

Be careful with UnitedHobbies....again. They had things worked out for a couple of months but they're back to holding the money AND the goods for an extended period of time. I ordered 10 days ago and it just got shipped this morning...all items were in plentiful stock.

Consider yourself warned.

Is Lightflite buying the HXT blue wonder and then rewinding it in order to say "Custom wound"?
Just "woundering"

They did the same to me. I think it's a PayPal issue personally.
I had to use my wife's account to pay since PayPal won't let me pay UH, even though I can pay anybody else. It comes back as "card declined".

My Wife's account goes to the bank account while mine is tied to my card.
She says there's normally a delay being paid on her purchases.
