They probably cash poor and have to buy cargo containers of product not just a few of each. And. the suppliers don't take credit cards.

I gave up on them a long time ago. Maybe if everyone did this they would get the idea!

They will have to if nothing is ever in stock. No stock=no sale=close doors.

I stopped looking months ago. Whatever I'm interested in is never in stock.

I hear ya on that. I have asked twice about the Lanyu AT-6 airframe in silver and get the same response. 2 weeks, well that was 2 months ago. Wouldn't mind buying a couple of spares but i am still waiting on the 2 weeks.

Marketing idiots

I tell you. I go to the Hobbypartz.com website (a subsidieary of Nitroplanes) and the Blue Lipo featured batteries showed barely any batteris in stock. These guys crack me up. I have four 2200 3S 30 Blue lipos and they've work great in stock kit 64 mm EDFs.

Parts issues

I bought a purple ultimate bipe 6 months ago off a guy thinking I could replace the cowling. You guessed it, OUT OF STOCK. I can get it in blue, but I'll have to pay 13 bucks to ship the wrong colored cowl. The bad thing is I would consider ordering another kit if they had anything in stock!

I've ordered multiple things from nitroplanes and always been pretty pleased but the out of stock thing is to the point i don't even bother with them. I asked a question on there forum rcdiscuss.com about if two ARF's were discontinued or just waiting on more stock. i got a " not sure keep checking website we get new shipments every month".... i'll take my money elsewhere

It sure looks like they are in a "going out of business" mode. It's too bad. I bought four of their 2200 30C 3S Blue Lipos and they've behaved surperbly. I can't tell the difference with my similar Thunderpowers 30C packs. The IR per cell is about 8 milliohms in the Blue Lipos and 5-6 M-ohms in the TPs.

Marketing 101A-- A very sneaky marketing ploy. Advertise great looking items at very low prices to hook lookers.

Then toss in the old "as seen on TV" bit to add creditability.

Then build your sales with one or two items.

One born every minute as the saying goes.

All sorts of products being sold on the net this way.

Been flying EXI helicopters for the better part of 4 years and I love 'em. I'm NOT impressed with HK but they can be made better by adding Align parts as parts fail. I loved using Xheli, Hobbypartz, and Raiden and have never had a problem ordering or quality. My problem is now, nothing in stock which has forced me to find other sources. My message to these 3 suppliers is that if I find a decient place to get this stuff, I stay with them. If I have problems with suppliers, I can find other sources and I am likely to stay with a dependable supplier...even if it's E-Bay. Just my $.02 worth. Personally, I think it's an importing problem with the Feds causing the shortages. I could be wrong but I doubt it.

LMAO, the "FEDS" have nothing to do with it. If it did then it would be universal to all companies who import from China.

NItroplanes has a lousy supply plan or a cash issue that doesn't permit ordering so there is an ample supply of product.
