45 days is what you will see on every order with cheap shipping. After you get the email that your order has been shipped, with the cheapest shipping option you should have it in two to three weeks. I have used the EMS shipping and it is faster but more expensive. The fastest I have gotten an order was with all in stock items and EMS shipping. I ordered on a Thursday evening and got it on Monday. I couldn't believe it. Most of their orders require a signature from the post office.

The shipping method I chose was the $3.99 air mail option. 2-3 weeks sounds fine, wish it could be here tomorrow.

2 - 3 weeks sounds right. I have an order that left Hong Kong on the 11th that I'm waiting for. I try two think about two months out for stuff that I may need from them. I get most of my batteries, motors and speed controllers from them.

I have ordered from them 48 times in the last three years.

I have 2 orders with them that have back-ordered stuff. I'll get them, when I get them. Don't even try to email them or expect costomer support. That is a waste of time. And if something breaks, forget about sending it back to China. The $ is too much. I did sent a couple of things back to see if I would ever receive the replacement, and I did. But the cost savings far outway the problems.

As far as the Nano 160"s are concerened, yes I have 12 of them on back-order.
Also, if anything in your cart is back-ordered, they won't ship until everything you ordered is in stock.

As long you think second is first, we'll both be happy.

Yes, yes I am willing to drive for seven hours to get it "quickly".

HobbyZone always showed them as coming 2/22, and now shows them as being in stock. I'm assuming that means mine will be in the mail shortly!

Well, I just finished charging my 6 Hpy 240's. I keep having this feeling that I'm missing something.

I will let you know if I get one Harv, the owner was making sure he has some coming today so it might be a race. (What part of my home Province are you in anyway?)
