HobbyKing delivery is Awesome

I see so many negative threads about HobbyKing, so I thought I'd chime in with a positive thread.

Ordered 2x Turnigy 2200mah on Monday morning ($27)
Just got it about 5 mins ago. That's 3 days from putting in the order .
I did pay the extra $1, but if I can get that in 3 days, I'm more than happy.


Thank You HobbyKing!

sorry to hear that. I've done 25+ orders with them and so far they have exceeded my expectation...well except 1,...where it got stuck in customs for almost 2 1/2 weeks, but that's not their fault.

have you tried their live support? I've gotten good response from that. I once even had to switch items around and live support was able to do that for me.

I've placed about a dozen HobbyKing orders and all have arrived within 7-10 days (except one). All orders were with the expensive EMS shipping (except one). The one was with the cheapest shipping and it took about 5 weeks to arrive.

Ordered one cockpit and 2 pilots from HK for my T45.
Placed it Tuesday. Paid via master.
Got it in Denmark, delievered on a SATURDAY, wich is very
unusual, as these kind of delievery only goes
to firms and other pro's. Not to a private person.

I sure will look and choose HK in the future also.

My latest shipment from HK was 6 days from hitting the buy now button
put in order on 5-10 and got it 5-16

shipment option was the $2.99 (cheapest)

But, I did another order 15 mins after this one and that one is still in HK which shows preparing for shipment. That one was the registered airmail ($14.99).
