I thought there were pages and pages of "if you use singapore post, may you wait an eternity"

And there is probably pages of me saying UPS is 3-4 days order to door. Li-pos, no li-pos, whatever, doesn't matter......Needs to be a big enough order to minimise the cost hit though. I think of it that if I need it now, and divide the total cost of UPS into the amount of items I have ordered, it works out at only a dollar or two per item......heaps cheaper than thinking of it as $30 for freight

If I don't need it now, then I'm happy to sit and wait and use cheapo postage.

Not very happy with Hobby King at the moment...

I made an order that was shipped just after christmas via EMS

after the first day tracking never updated and i recieved orders i'd made the week after.

I used their support and gave them all the details, they investigated then today told me it was delivered on the 4th!

I checked the NEW tracking number they gave me and it showed the package coming from NSW!

so i've either been charged $47.00 for shipping from sydney or they've given me someone elses tracking info as it doesn't show the final destination address.

and i still don't have my package.

end

Well, both the HK post and singpost packages I ordered about 10 days ago have arrived... not bad performance given the previous deliveries!

To be fair to them every other order I've made has been 4-6 days.

It wouldn't surprise me if the couriers have lost it.

I'm in country Queensland and it takes 2 -3 weeks here. Lets face it, stuff has to go through customs as well so this slows it down. I order before I need it and keep stock so I am never waiting on stuff. It just arrives and hopefully I get to the mailbox before the wife.........

What does grind with me is postage from HK Sydney costs more than HK Singapore. And there slightly dearer prices so I normally shop Hong Kong. Works out cheaper.

Ive searched the forums but cant find an answer....

Has Hobbyking Caringbah moved or have they shut completely and its warehouse only orders from Moruya now?

Cheers

25 days shipping

Just posting a note to give status.

I put an order in on 12/26, it shipped on 12/29.
The order included LiPos, charger, motors and a multitude of parts.

It showed as in Zurich on 1/8 and finally arrived on 1/19.
No update showed in tracking until the delivery.
