How much have you spent on Hobbyking?

Today I just made my order #49 at HK, I have never ordered so much from a single website in my life, I have 3 pages or past orders I was wondering how much have you spend with HK?

This is my count:

1- Orders = 49
2- Cheapest order = $7.27
3- Most expensive order =$348.95
4- Total of all orders = $3,682.92
5- Customer Type = Platinum Member

Funny thing is that I spend more at my local hobbies and I really don't know where do I get the money for it.

LOL I'm a "Platinum" member too but only made around 7 orders... around 5 orders and you get the reduced prices of a Platinum member...

That certainly is a lot of cash right there! I'll get there someday

I buy from batteries from american based Chinese companies like hobbypartz or Nitroplanes because I want it NOW and not in 2 weeks.

I guess I don't really order from HK anymore now that I think about it
HeadsUp gets most of my business or the LHS.

Kits and ARFs are also bought in country, again the shipping $$ and delay.

All told though I've maybe spent 1G at HK prior.
Can't really say I mind paying a little more as I've had bad product from HK before and state side store are so much easier and cheaper to deal with when warranty issues arise.

$0.... I guess I'm leery of all the bad press HK has received. Not so much from bad product, but the less than desirable customer service.

I've made 43 orders, and $3500+.
I've only gotten two bad items from Hobby King, a $12 Rx and an $8 ESC. I threw them away because of shipping cost to return. I figure I still saved a couple thousand of dollars over what I would pay elsewhere.
