hobbyshopwarehouse a real American company

Finale a hobby store with American values and standards. Plane not in stock, no problem.. they will get it for you! The days of waiting for the slow boat from China to come in are over, companies that purchase large sums of planes to save in shipping cost but do not pass the saving to the customer is un American especially in these times. I'm all for making a buck, but not taking a order because your not gonna make as much on 1 plane because it had to be airmailed is bad business. This really pis#fg me off, how a company can be a OEM and keep the customer waiting is beyond me if they are oem they should have to be required to take an order and have it sent from china by airmail.

Here is an example, you can order from Rccastle, aerial hobby, or hobbyking the planes are with in a few pennies of each other. 90% of the time the overseas guys are cheaper than BANANAHOBBY or Hobbylobby. So why is it that you can order overseas pay about 15 bucks more for shipping and still come out cheaper than BH or HL with reg, ground shipping. Yes it may take 7 to 10 days to get an item, but thats better than waiting for stock to be filled. Also why are the planes costing more?

Well thats all in the past now that hobbyshopwarehouse is here no more made exclusive for BH bull $#!*, besides that line is a lie.... this stiff is made ahead of time and the first hobby store that picks up on the large order gets the rights for the us market. This sounds a lot like Russia, "Danny this isn't is it, is this Russia" sorry caddy shack line.

Just got 1 of many planes that I ordered way to go HSW!

Talk to Chuck he will get what ever you looking for,

1 last example... I needed a decal sheet for a jpower A7, it was originally a HL plane, and even HL would not order for me because they dropped the plane, I'm like what does that matter? Your one of dealer just order it?

Same for BH I needed wing and naceles for the large A10 they sale since they do not have it listed on site I can't get it... they are not wiling to make a special order, oh well I know where can get it now!!!



Customer service is excellent, has the same motto as my company, customers all ways right, and go above and beyond the call of duty to fill even small orders, a good business man know that one small order can lead to one large order in the future or many orders from word of mouth....

Just curious, what plane did you order and receive from them? I am interested in a couple of models on the site but don't need a RTF would rather just have PNP or a kit. I have been watching that LX models debate as well...

They have kits to, I ordered the f16 90mm, F18 90mm, mig 29 large, and a flyfly mirage. I'm gonna order 90mm eurofighter, su34, F104, and F86 large with edlectric retracts. Pretty much anything that BH or HL has they can get. If your have the means I highly recomend them, forget the wait, tallk to a real person and rc pilot, and feel what good customer service is all about! I do not care if it has to be brought over from china and there could be a 2 week wait, there saving me money and I do not have to keep calling about when will such and such be in stock, or expectexd date for preorders....

Wow! This is truly sad! A desperate attempt to attract sales. I won't buy a thing for hobbyshopwarehouse or Venom Corp.

Both companies have "Sleezy" business practices! Period!

I have been buying from Venom for a few years, they are a great company. That said hobbyshopwarehouse needs to QC their site. I found a cool T-bird F-22 but they want $9,999 for it! I could get a turbine RTF for that cost!

http://shop.hobbyshopwarehouse.com/F...A-JE1118-T.htm

How about a hawk for $100,000!!! Hope I get a free battery and the retracts work as advertised!

boomer- Unfortunately, what Venom did to Banana Hobby is wrong and shady! I can't support that type of business and I have supported several great companies. Venom is not one of them. Period!

hobbyshopwarehouse is another company you need to watch. These guys are an unauthorized LX dealer. LX will be posting this fact on their website and here on the Groups.

Regards,
Tony
