I figured the package would be to your side of the world much quicker than us further east. My suggestion is give it another week. Could be held up in customs.

I ordered 8 lipos and an Orange rx from them on May 13th. They arrived yesterday. You still have a week to go.

usually hk orders not shipped ems will take 2-4 weeks,depending on customs.i never order stuff i need in a hurry,just get it from the local hs.usually my hk orders are for stock up stuff and spares,if i need it now i can get it from the usa warehouse in 3 days,also when it's day here it's night there so plan phone calls for that.i have gotten live ppl before,just have to call at the right time

When ordering from Hobby King, you must Fire and Forget. Forget about it if it doesn't get there, forget about it if its broken or defective, forget about it if you get the wrong order, and so on. The aggravation you will go through to make things right far outweighs a positive outcome (usually).

+1. You must be a Zen master to order from HK, that's the law.

What can HK do for you?

Watch for a black delivery van with dark tinted windows and a Beavis and Butt-Head custom plate on the front bumper.

You have little hope of a good outcome here.... HOBBYKING is a VENDOR and this is a VENDOR TALK issue. See the pattern?

This forum is for TRADER TALK, talk about dealers and deals between Rcgroups members (like when they have a user name...)
Luck to you, better luck follows when you can follow the pattern...

Jim's portrayal of the truth may be a bit pointed , but then , the truth usually IS a bit pointed itself .


With the 6 zillion "HK sux" threads that already exist in Vendor talk , im sure they've got room for just one more
