So many good things at such good prices - all delivered to my door.

It's hard not to go overboard. In fact - I find it impossible and keep ordering all sorts of stuff that I "might need".

Update

The EMS parcel is at the post office waiting for me to pick it up, still waiting for the international air to come. Although the order was placed 7 days before the EMS.

So yes EMS is worth the extra few dollars.

Is the red light on a Spectrum receiver. If so that means that the receiver power has droped. - try a bigger battery

Hi, I've placed 70 orders totalling $4,400 over the last 3 years and only had 2 (big) lipo battery failures (no longer sold). Everything else has worked just fine. Their 5 min epoxy is terrific and makes a good 'stocking filler' as do servo leads.

I always thought it was brave of them to publish all feedback! Out of interest I understand a Sydney guy owns the business.

I left a less than favorable review about an otter esc, HK kept on deleting it.

We all and know and love the HXT900 but I am wondering if there is an equivalent servo in the next size up in terms of price and quality. Do they make a larger servo that is as reliable as the HXT900?

Well the international air came today, thats 18days from order to arrival, very respectable in my books.

Just got an order in. 1.5kg sent by Air (not EMS)
It took 5 days to get here from the notification email stating it was shipped. Can't remember the amount of days to get it ready, it wasn't too bad anyway.
Nice little surprise when I opened the box, everything had a box to itself.
I've not experienced this in the past, all parts normally been placed in a plastic 'zip lock' type bag and put into a big box.

Keeps everything that little bit more secure as well.

Hopefully mine is just as quick with the slow mail option. Last time I remember the order being packed in less than a day, a lot slower this time it seems

I got an order delivered a couple of weeks ago. It took them about 5 days before it was shipped (maybe they are still recovering from the new year break) and then another 5 or 6 days to get here. Regular parcel post. Just ordered again on Monday after a bunch of 'out of stock' items came in. I am not near the $4,000 mark in dealings with them, but at this rate I am heading there fast.
