Yep. Although I did see it from a few sellers on taobao (China's ebay) for $23 with shipping included to China! If I knew chinese I'd ask them about international shipping.

How long did delivery take from banggood? I ordered a v911 and a bunch of parts from myrcmart and chose the faster shipping option. Now I'm considering buying another one from banggood to have as a spare or maybe putting that money towards something like a blade coax from a local hobby shop just to have something to play with now. Or should I put that money toward a better and/or cheaper heli from an online store that could get the heli to me quicker, I live in the pnw, usa. Decisions decisions

big JC - Welcome to the site.

Member (and heli connoisseur) Doubletap is in California, and he ordered a 4-ch coaxial heli from Banggood during the Christmas rush and it only took 7 days to ship over.

I ordered a V911 from Banggood a couple days ago, and just got an email last night saying it has shipped out. Banggood also sends a tracking number and a link so you can track the order. So far, Banggood has been real good about the order, and their Customer Service seems good too. Plus, you buy at Banggood through PayPal, which is a safe way to go.

Off topic - Banggood has lots of RC Helis ... seems most (but not all) of their prices are near the best you'll find, especially if there is free shipping. I know Doubletap has probably already scoured Banggood for good deals.

Yeah, I used paypal with myrcmart, and they supposedly give you a tracking number (ordered 3 days ago and is still "processing"), they claimed 4-14 days shipping on my order. My logic was to go ahead and order another one for spares etc. from banggood if it got to me quicker, or just put that $ toward something like a blade coax from a local hobby shop so I would have something to play with now.

I used to have a hayabusa...pretty sick bike!

I just looked up your tracking number here [ http://app3.hongkongpost.com/CGI/mt/enquiry.jsp ] and it says:

"Destination - Croatia
The item (RB278364026HK) left Hong Kong for its destination on 25-Dec-2011"


Sounds like it left Honk Kong on Dec 25th and is heading to Croatia.

I wouldn't worry about it, tracking numbers tend to 'get lost' once they hit your home country. They track fine to the point of leaving Hong kong, but you'll find the prefix letters of the tracking number (or end letters) usually change with your country's postal service, so it sort of disappears. Once you sign for it, it should show a few days later as delivered, if you can be bothered to check that is...


Is RCMart the only place listing spares? I need more batteries although a 'spare' V911 from Banggood might just be cheapeast option in the long run?

Where did you buy it from? Maybe they tested it out before shipping. Any signs of the heli being flown?
