Anyone else noticed this issue?
Sometimes it can take 5 or more days to get into the system. After Christmas they are probable backed up.

This is why I don't even bother with saving a few bucks. The product usually sits in China's shipyard or the airport for days untill its cleared to for delivery. I don't mind paying an extra few bucks to buy locally and delivered with 5 days. I am very impatient.

Maybe, but another item I ordered was shipped using Hong kong post about 3 days ago (2 days after the one with the broken tracking no.) and it's tracking number is working fine... The seller is currently trying to find out what is wrong... I'll just have to wait and see if the tracking no. starts working

EDIT:
So another one of my orders has fallen through This time the 9938 "hawk" heli that I had posted a few pages back, the seller live chatted with me today and told me they were all out of stock) So I went ahead and ordered the HQ 852 +extra battery + EMS shipping. Overall, I think this is a bit of a blessing really, The performance of that HQ852 is so good in the few vids i've seen of it, and the price ain't half bad either

4-channel's unfortunate "exhumation"?

Hear, hear. Instant gratification is worth good dollars. I bet if I start a site where ALL orders are shipped 2-day, regardless of cost, it would be swamped in Desk Jockeys constantly. Beemer-Boys love toys, and will pay 3x to HAVE it ASAP.

Much experience here, most of my own business involved "must have it NOW" spoiled types, who unfortunately, could actually pay me to hurry (I'm LAZY at heart, folks), and then pay MORE to have "IPS" get it there pronto.


Well, it does appear that OTHER copter sellers are indeed low on product now...as Xheli was just before Christmas (just how many ExecuDollars were missed out on? Kudos to them for NOT taking Back-orders to capture the revenue, but still, they seemed to be getting low on the "just-in-time" or "Kanban" here, considering their assumed Purchasing Power, IMHO). And yet, new models are arriving!

I'm intrigued by stuff like the Double Horse 9100. at first glance, it's a hodge-podge. But I can see that the tooling used mimics that of more "mainstream" 4-channel helicopter designs, and to me, this means lower overall cost to produce.

As far as I know, the DHoax 9100 is the first 3-channel with:
A single lifting motor.
A gear-drive prop controlling yaw.
A non-coaxial layout.
F/R gyro (assumed).
A swashplate.
A servo.
Composite, TVP (twin vertical plate) chassis.
An all-metal flybar.
More than one trimmer (also assumed).

That's all stuff from a bigger's copter's gravesite, kids.

I noticed the listings for this model invariably include "PACKING Per Unit Dimension :64 x 12 x 23cm Gross Weight : 1,400g Per CTN (8 Units) "

My assumption (getting them in today, huh?) is that no sellers, save for a precious few, actually have stock in to pass on to customers.

Will I be the first in North America to be able to photograph one, as I was (happily) with the BLUE "S107's"?

3 hours to go....to DH 9098 order to be canceled from Nancy Quins

OK, only 3 hours remaining before my order of my Double Horse 9098 from "Nancy Quins" at AliExpress will be auto canceled. I'm guessing this order will be canceled and funds will be refunded.

Hello guys. Had a Syma S107 for christmas and I'm suitably besotted with it. Would like to get a 4ch heli though and wondered what opinions you might have on this:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/METAL-4-CHANNE...ht_2764wt_1139

It looks a little like the Falcon 8911, or is it just mutton dressed as lamb?

Heh.

Looks like it's a decent purchase for someone new to RC in general, let alone helis.
Seems to have decent reviews on here.

I've noticed you guys have spent some money in the last couple of weeks. lol.
