Heads Up RC: so fast: ordered Saturday, it arrived Monday morning!

I just thought it deserved mentioning, my recent experience of placing my first order with a hobby shop called Heads Up RC.

I had read a while back that their customer service, specifically their shipping speed, was the best there is. So I placed an order last Saturday morning, about 1 AM Eastern time (I live in Michigan). I opted for the $5 USPS priority shipping, as USPS priority has also been most excellent for me.

Well to make this a short story, my order was shipped that same morning (Saturday morning!!) from Florida, and it arrived in my mailbox at 11:45 AM Monday - just a little over 48 hours later! That was so fast!

This was the most excellent speed for shipping an order I've ever seen. Keep it up Heads Up RC!!

Anyone who wants their stuff NOW: use these guys!

+2! They have the best customer service that I've come across and ship fast. They stand behind their stuff and resolve issues very quickly.

HURC is an excellent place to buy from! I pretty much get all my electronics from there, even with $2 shipping the package always comes within 4 days all the way across the USA. One time I paid of the $5 shipping, it shipped monday night (same day) and got the package wednesday afternoon...wow! I love the power-up motors/esc/UBECs etc they have never failed me.

So far they've been awesome...I order, they ship, they email a USPS tracking number, I refresh the tracking screen a couple of thousand times and the mailman shows up with the package containing exactly what I ordered....I'll have to try the $5 shipping next time I'm grounded waiting on a part

+1: HURC is awesome. I emailed Jeff a question on a brushless motor one Sunday evening (7PM or so) and I got a reply by 10PM. Unbelievable. Most of my fleet has a HURC part in it.
