Nothing bad that I have ordered either.......we run boats and $150 sure beat $300 on the RTR. The LiPoly packs have shown nothing wrong either.

I checked shipping on 4 3s packs from USA and China the shipping was pretty close to the same amount using cheapest shipping method. to get the 4 packs from China was $6 cheaper than same packs from USA, you just get them a whole lot quicker from the U.S. Just recheck prices on 4 2650 3s 30c packs. I did not log on to my account till after I was checking out, the sign in page popped up and I could not go any farther till I logged in. I then continued and shipping came up as $5.08 priorety mail on my 4 packs. When you log in first and put the 4 packs in cart and check out, shipping is $16.79 prioety mail. In both cases packs came from US warehouse 18.99 a pack. What the @#$% is up with that

That's what I paid for 5 115g lipos. Ordered yesterday and got an email today that they are on the shipping dock. I remember my first week at new jobs I worked and figured they are doing ok for a startup. I don't know if they will make it to same day shipping, seems the US warehouse is small enough.

I haven't tried Turnigy lipos so this will be a new experience.

I got the email and the HK My Account page has not been updated, so look for email first.

What's more exciting is wondering how my Stick 400 is going to be like when I drop from a 157g battery to a 115g battery. Since the old lipos are 2000mah 10C 3S that sort of act like a 1500mah, the 1300 20C's might improve not only weight but voltage sag.

I paid $5.44 for USPS Priority to Florida for 2 188 grm batteries .

Another strange thing , when I open the details page on web site there is a link to a "customs invoice " . When I open the link the invoice shows a Hong Kong address a completely different price for the batteries and shipping . Much lower price . It say's to keep for tax purposes.

High shipping costs from HK US warehouse? Not so. I ordered two 2200mAh 3S LiPo's. Total weight is right at 1 pound. The postage from HK was shown as $4.90 for normal Parcel Post or $5.44 for Priority mail. I chose the priority for $0.55 cents more.

I went to the USPS site and calculated what it would cost me to ship a 1 pound package from my home to HK US warehouse. The postage was exactly the same. HK is not marking anything up on postage as far as I can see. See the attached screen shot clips.

The total for the 2 LiPo's using parcel post would be $26.88. The same LiPo's from HK in Hong Kong using the cheapest postage would be $26.97. I opted for the Priority Mail so my total was $27.42. I thought it was worth the $0.54 to get the LiPo's a few days earlier.
