Yea id like to buy from them but everything is sold out. im looking at the ef 2000 but i guess ill end up ordering from snhobbies. last year i tried getting a wild hawk from them and after a month of waiting i talked to customer service and they said they should have it restocked in a week. well after checking every day, three moneths later they were still sold out. in the 4 months i spent waiting for nitroplanes to restock the wild hawk i saved enough and got the easystar. is it just me or is there a shortage of everything... lol, but seriusly, no ammo, no planes, and now no sugar LOL!?

Exceed RC F-35

Hey Jason (nitroplanes),

I have an F-35 with minor damage and you're out of stock even on most of your spare parts. I need a right side elevator and the main landing gear. Any clue when those items may arrive back in stock or can you give me an alternative source for now?

I just checked the Nitroplanes website again for 70 mm EDFs. 13 EDFs listed, 9 were sold out.

It looks like the supply chain problems are fixed.

10% off

Great, I get a 10% off coupon from Nitroplanes. I want a EDF FA18 kit and I go to 70 mm kits and 19 are listed. 10 are SOLD OUT. With models I want always sold out I have in the last 3 mos. bought three other EDFs -- two from Hobby Lobby and one from Atlanta Hobby. I like the EXCEED RC EDFs but Nitroplanes seems to be the only dealer. Exceed ought to find another distibutor who has the money to keep them in stock.

I, too, want them to succeed. I am simply a rcflyer who's support crew role is to answer questions if I can. I don't work for CommonSenseRC. I just get a discount on their products.

I wonder about that too but it would be pretty weird to have only one two edf on the page for EDF JETS.

Hobbypartz.com, a sister company, has the same problem with their lipos -- out of stock for months.

It is a pretty weird business model but the supply base must require large orders to buy from them.

Fed up with Nitroplanes (out OF STOCK)

I would definitely NOT buy stock in Nitroplanes. They have been promising to improve their supply stream for months now. If they only knew how much more money they could make if they only got their Sh-t together.
