Does that mean this is a JIT? And what does that mean?
Just in time

I think basically these are in the system but tend not to be at the main warehouse for immediate dispatch...they are located at a larger warehouse which is probably first port of call and sitting in a large shipment of other items - yet to be moved to HK's main distribution and sales centre

JIT-item: These products are stored in our second, larger warehouse and take 3-5 days to be dispatched. The entire order will be dispatched at 1 time.

Yup - one of the nasty surprises that don't do HK any favours tbh...

However the heat on this product - I would have thought that you will get your order sooner than estimated delay in shipment.. As I guess these Slicks are on HK's radar not to screw the good kama that they have been getting on this product..

The worse issue is when something is put on back order - when you place order...

That is a real nasty - as you see it there and it shows stock - you go and purchase and then find out that the item shows as not reserved but on back order...and you really want to go all Falling Down when it is but a small part of a larger order that they won't part ship until the backorder item is back in stock.....

JIT means Just In Time. It is likely an internal designation so they only make just a many as the need and then ship those out. The JIT dispenses with large batch runs that then sit in inventory to be taxed or become obsoleted by design change.

You guys will probably go through what we in Oz go through with 3dhs. Not wanting to put down Rob/ADC, but I reckon they would be able to sell more planes in this side of the world if they organised a drop ship arrangement direct from the factory or have a local distributor who doesn't impose so a high mark up that it makes it more worthwhile to buy from elsewhere.
Well i just think they are disinterested... i had enough funds aside to buy 20-30 3DHS kits for a first order (happy to buy ongoing) but they didnt even grace me with a reply..... even a rejection email would have sufficed.

Bigster, look here. You even have several choices. :-)

USA, state of Virginia :-)

You could order from China, pay big shipping, wait for it, hope it doesn't get damaged in shipment and save a couple dollars...your call. :-)

I'm a little slow, and can't decipher your implication. I'm curious to know what you think it says?

It only a matter of time until they move into Australia with a similar agreement to this in the UK

I think your link got munged. I can't tell what you were referring to (though I'd love to order from VA!)
