I placed 3 orders with free ship. None have gone out so far.

They're probably waiting to see what else we're going to order so that they can toss it all in one box, lol.

Sounds correct.
The free shipping is only for those planes. The system probably can't seperate the shipping cost when you add something else in. It's weight/size based shipping.

The average price for those six "free shipping" ARFs is $307. Anybody really think anything's free here?

If the prices weren't lower before they offered free shipping, then definitely.
I'm sure people have bought those planes and paid a hefty amount for shipping in the past.
No?

How many 7 foot+ wingspan ARF's are usually priced at $307 shipped to your door? please correct me if I'm wrong (and i mean that honest & sincerely - I'm no expert on bigger planes), but I believe that's a pretty decent deal.

I might not put it in the Epic Black Friday deal category, but it's nothing to be disappointed about.

Where do you get $26 for shipping. I see 2200 3s 20C for 9.99 and shipping is under $6. Are you going to the final checkout screen to see the actual usps???

I checked and they are that price(7.89x3=23.57) at the international warehouse, so, of course shipping adds up but still not $26. However thay can be gotten from the US warehouse for 9.99? each plus shipping. My shipping is about $6.
I guess my only concern, are they old stock, and going to puff right away!

AHA!

I never had any issues with them yet! Have Turnigy's, Zippy's and nano's no problems at all, but only have about 20 charges on them (balanced every time)

Well, it's a week since the Black Friday sale and my order still hasn't shipped. That's not a joke. I'll give HK a couple of more days, then I'll call my credit card...

Have you contacted their customer service yet? Maybe they're waiting on an item or something strange happened. See if they can tell you what's up.

My order shipped right away and is currently on a UPS truck out for delivery.

From their International warehouse, It's not uncommon for HK to wait a week or week and a half before shipping. Not uncommon at all.

I've had about a dozen orders shipped from the USA warehouse and they usually ship within a week. I placed 3 orders on Monday, and none have shipped, but I'm sure that they're slammed to the max. I'll wait.

If you're in a hurry, impatient, or demand that your orders be shipped in a timely fashion, I recommend that you never order anything from Hobbyking. That's just the way it is. That's the 'price' you pay for the cheapest RC products and parts in the world.
