there was no box, the remotes were taped together and wrapped in that stiff green paper..

although the box cost nothing, it was a waste of almost 400g of shipping costs that could have been more items.

at least the remotes arrived, now I can pack my nephew's christmas presents. theyre heading off way before christmas, and I was concerned the parcel wouldnt arrive in time...

after several emails back and forth, HKing have given me a store credit of $6.2 to make up for the missing box/extra postage,,

Im happy with that!!

gee i'm doing better than you then i,m up to 21 days since i paid for it and it's still not here, maybe tomorrow haha.

I asked the question "Why are you sending my stuff sing post when i pay for reg mail, am i being published for something" the only answer i have had is "what country do you live in?" great response to an elite member hahaha

lucky it was only a couple of rolls of tape and not needed straight away, but this sending stuff sing post is a pain in the butt, are they trying to force us to use the expensive postage i was happy with Registered mail and always had it a lot quicker than the worst of all sing post

cheers chuck

i put in a $120 order including postage this morning. im expecting a bit over three weeks wait as it is coming via registered airmail. any body ever tried their inc engines? i ordered the 46 size one. i reckon if the are half decent then they should be alright. all the gear is going into a bipe that a fellow club member gave to me for free. should be here just in time for christmas.

I believe the INC engines are LEO engines direct from factory or otherwise using their equipment, ie built under licence.

I have one and it runs very well, turning a JXF 10x7 at enough rpm to give long verticals and good speed to a 1500mm wingspan Stik.

Only gripe is that the carby is poorly designed or somes with o-rings of poor quality - mine is often untunable to the point where you are relying on dumb luck. Fix any air leaks and you will have a very nicely running engine that doesn't need nitro to peform. Try initial tuning with fuel tube to seal the highend needle.

Also ensure you remove the muffler's baffle plate so you get maxiumum performance and a free, crisp sound.

five orders,
one 14/11, singP
one on 15/11 sent HKPost.
two more on 17/11..singP
and a ems on 1/12

one of the 17/11's turned up on monday 3/12
the other 17/11 turned up on tuesday 4/12
the EMS arrived today 5/12

the 15/11 HKPost turned up 23/11... 8 days transit.

Im still waiting on the 14/11 to arrive....

You def need to go onto CS chatline, and ask for HKPost instead of Singpost. They'll try to convince you that both tell them the same transit times, but the difference is that your parcel doesnt go from HK to singapore in a bulk shipment, then takes several days to get handed to singpost. once singpost has it, it takes the same time as HKPost... its just getting it into singpost's hands that can take extra time.

..my last three orders have all been EMS, which is now taking the same time that regular HKPost airmail used to, just multiple times more expensive.
