I must say they are very cheap and free shipping
I have heard of them and I have been to their page before as it came up as having history pages that i had been to but I never noticed that their shipping was free and yes I would say they are based in Hong Kong and ship directly from there I will bookmark then and have a good look as they seem to be a good place to do some bulk buying from.

Its free shipping if your order is over 2kg. I have just ordered 9116 parts which came to $26 and 0.41kg and they charged $7 shipping.

If you choose the items you want to order and put them in your cart you can see what the shipping charges (if any) will be before you commit to buying.

Strange On my 1 item and no matter how many I put in my cart and its well above 2kg I still have to pay for shipping up to $25.00 but if you put in a single item that is over 2kg eg helicopter then the shipping for that item is free even though it states on their front page Free World Wide Shipping

Unless it depends on which country they are shipping to maybe. Just to check I put some more items in the cart for $100 and they quoted $4 shipping - no free shipping option.

I don't recommend them. I ordered a new TX from them on 1/12/12. Order says processing. Checked their site and the item hasn't even been packaged. So I emailed them, and finally got a response. Since it hasn't been shipped I told them to cancel and refund my money. I expected it would ship before everyone went on holiday, but it didn't and I noticed they have only sold 3. No wonder!

I ordered some 9116 parts from egrandmart on eBay, they seem to have the best prices. 12$ for pcb board and 2.50$ for shipping. Think I got the parts in 10 days.

In the mean time, I got a new 9958 AND a new Hero H853 (26inch) from raidentech. 90$ including shipping in 5 days! The H853 is supposed to be a 9053 Version 2. I think it's actually a clone of the 9053! Anyways, been too windy, here but I've been working that 9958. Been a challenge, very quick in my living room, likes to take off straight for the book cases, couch etc. You name it!

Cool Keep it up and you will get there. You can fix up the scuff marks with a blue or orange texta.
