Boys, boys, boys, we are not debating whether HK sell to shops here, I was only posting my findings because I have (possibly wrongly) assumed that a UK Warehouse is imminent (after all why add these shipping methods if they cannot be used from any of their other warehouses)...As a UK resident I am pretty stoked to be getting a HK Warehouse which can ship kits/planes etc. quickly. I understand, like all the other warehouses, that not all products will be available - but im happy with that!

Hi guys.
The UK warehouse should open within a few short weeks.
I will be over there for the opening before heading to 3D Masters.

We delayed the opening because we wanted to ensure we had enough stock and variety.

Just quietly, the UK warehouse is going to kick some serious ar5e!

Anthony.

The 3D Masters 2012 will be held in Venlo. Holland on the 13-15 July so we are a lot closer than i thought it might be.

Ask them they just might help you out and open another one a bit closer to you,what about next door or is that to close.

Anyway the UK warehouse has gone live today and i just had to order something didn't i,i went for the Durafly SE5a and the postage options was bang on IMO,i got the choice of 48H or a 24H and i went for the 24 hour option at around the 11 mark but for you who don't want to pay the full price you can go for the 48H one at around 7 i think it was,not 100% sure on that so you will have to wait and see when you make your orders.

Glad to see your warehouse is shipping at the very reasonable rates our U.S. warehouse is. I shipped a huge package the other day and its due to arrive any minute now ( yaay ) and was under $18 so right around 12.

Yes, I've been waiting for them to open so that I could order some.

I've been eagerly waiting but now, a pretty poor show from HK. There should have been a whole lot more in stock. Not a single accessory, for example. No receivers, batteries, cables, fittings, etc.

Scott did recently say in the HK Lancaster thread 'a bit suprised (sic) ourselves at it opening today, most of the stock has not been entered into the system yet! ' so hopefully there will be more on there soon.

The UK warehouse is, for me, a welcome appearance and since it's actually appeared about two months earlier than I was expecting I'm not bothered about the presently limited stock. I'm worried that it's not going to be particularly good news for GiantShark who I think offer the best online service and value going (including a range of HK/Turnigy products) although at the moment HKUK have the planes and GS have the accessories. It will be interesting to see if HKUK match the UK standard we are all coming to expect (and reliably demonstrated by GS) of same day despatch. And some other UK hobby shops are certainly going to feel the breeze. Under 50 delivered to my door for a PNP EPO EDF such as http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...arehouse_.html is going to burn a lot of people's ears. That may not turn out to be as good as it looks right now - be careful what you wish for. It'll be interesting to see whether the low pricing is matched by HK's less than perfect customer service and product back-up. I for one would certainly pay a little more for the security of good product backup that HKUK's existing UK based competitors (generally) offer.
