Anyone seen this before???

Below is an email i sent to hobby king...
not happy



Hello Hobbyking
2 weeks ago I placed an order for a Radjet (2004350168). I chose for it to be shipped by EMS.
After it was eventually shipped, the tracking number came up as a singpost tracking number... When i checked the number on singpost track and trace (EQ301044068SG) It said it was in transit from origin. It was in this state for a week and half. Now i look at my order i placed, and the tracking number is (2QQ15374)... What is going on. I emailed singpost and they said they hadn't collected it yet.....
Please i would at least like a reply...
Thankyou

Not surprised at all. I have not had them change a tracking number but I have waited on an order for 7 weeks on in stock items, while others with a similar order receive in 2 weeks or less. A local hobby club collects orders from many of their members and submits orders in large quantities. The clubs order seems to get here faster. Maybe large orders get priority???This is why if you are in a hurry you never order from HK.

This is true. For the ridiculously cheap prices, the downside is erratic shipping times and sub par tracking. I try and order things well ahead of when I think I may or may not need them, that way they have plenty of time to get here. If I need something by the weekend, I either buy from the US, or the LHS.

But Im sure you dont need me to add insult to injury. Im sure your package will get there soon enough. Sorry to hear your tracking number got switched up and your package is delayed.

did you order any Lipos with it? or did the radjet come with Lipos?

If there are any Lipo (however small), it goes singpost, and with singpost, your package takes a vacation around the globe before it circles and gets to you.

My last order with Lipos took 27 days to get to me.

Last month I ordered by 9x quickly while it was in stock for a few seconds, and then the next day I ordered some additional parts, including the LiFe battery. The second shipment including the battery was sent swisspost, which arrived a full week before the radio. For what its worth.

It helps living 20 miles outside of JFK. Once something clears customs, USPS usually has it to me by the next day or the day after.
