OK, I had been trying to track using hkpost web site and they still only show one package as being processed. That means the one package has not left yet and the other has not been scanned at hk post yet.

sfcservice.com is like mailboxes etc. Just a packing and shipping company. And it still has to go through china post or hk post which both still seem to be backlogged with packages. Both my tracking # end with HK so they are both going hk post. My hobbyking orders are taking up to 8 days to be scanned in and find space on the plane and I expect the same with myefox through sfcservice. But maybe I am wrong and sfcservice has their own customs inspectors and charter their own flights. They do state that they can "shorten delivery time by 7-14 days (compared with China Post)." Does that mean they just send through hk post? I am assuming so because of the HK tracking number.


btw: one of my hobbyking orders just scanned in so it is taking customs or USPS 20 days to get it from the plane at JFK through the first sorting center (JFK ISC). This package left hobbyking Jan 19 so that shows how slow things are. Over a month in transit.

This isnt my address lol - ( Im from the UK ) so I was thinking this was a step stone destination ?!
it gives out my exact address at street level and house #

you need to contact them and tell them they sent you a wrong # to verify that again

i would think so and from little experience i had thus far it appears that i was able to receive packages via hongkong post faster than by china post and thats about a week faster

I have not timed it with the stock charger which is one of those ac to usb switching wall wart at 600ma and they supply a usb to jst cable that has a charge light in the usb end. Their web site says 2.5 hours but I think it was less. I have 2 extra packs and have been using a B6 at 500ma to charge them. The packs have the common red jst connector.

yea thats what i heard 2.5 so it makes sense to have a couple of batts when dealing with such long charge times, what charger do you recommend that can charge these in multiples? the one you have or?

Any B6 type will work and you can parallel several batteries together and charge at a higher rate if you want. I wonder if the usb circuit in the cable limits the current as the charger should be able to give a full charge in about 60 minutes. Wonder if my kid will allow me to bust open the usb connector and look inside.

Have a look in the F27 thread, I think maukabud shows some of the B6 chargers he uses around page 11 or so.

cheers for all your help guys, Ive sent an email out today explaining that they have sent out to a wrong address or made a mistake somewhere in the system, but followed on to say if they cant correct it by the end of the day I'm escalating the problem to Pay-pal and start to submit evidence that i will not receive my purchased goods.

Tbh wish i steered clear of this deal , too much hassle for a 20 copter lol.

hope the rest of you enjoy your orders

Odyssey Quantum 300 3 channel for $15 shipped:

No gyro, I don't think, but you do get the landing pad and 4 cones with the heli, so that's kinda cool. Can't vouch for the site, Ive never bought with them.
