Heads Up RC

You know what makes Heads UP RC so awesome?

This: http://www.headsuphobby.com/

Look how much time and effort they put into describing their product and how it works and what should go with it. Amazing.

Besides a few other vendors like Stevens Aero, and Mountain Models, who does such a wonderful job at that.

I think that is what sets them above the crowd and why they are doing so well.

It's amazing what happens when a company accurately and completely describes an item, honestly suggests what will work well with it, and ships it in a timely manner.

As an experiment, both to learn about small electrics and to see how good their stuff is, I got an Eflite Cessna 150, and outfitted it with electronics that all came from HURC (except for the receiver). Everything was exactly as described and worked as expected. I was very satisfied and will give them my business again.

Heads Up RC

I just placed an order with HURC and it shipped the next day. Everything! No backorders, good pricing. I like dealing with such a quality outfit.

There is NO online vender that comes close to the detail and the customer service that you receive from Jeff at HURC.

On July 3, about 1 pm their time, I placed a small order, fooled around for about 10 minutes, drank a cup of coffee and checked my e-mail: amazing, there sat a shipping notice and delivery confirmation!

Just amazing.

First Heads Up RC Experience - Incredible!

I just ordered from HURC for the first time and was stunned. For $32 including shipping I got what looks like a world-class programmable six-LiPo charger (iMax) and it arrived in two days flat.

The Chinese instructions were quite good but intricate to follow. But the photocopied American written quickstart guide made it a slam-dunk. Now **that** is a special touch from the distributor!

I was holding back because I wanted multi-outputs, but then realized that at this price I can simply buy a couple more.

Makes you wonder what the other guys are up to...

Hurc #1

HURC is number one in my book for service and descriptives. I do wish they carried balsa and carbon however. Then I would never have to shop anywhere else.
