Bombay should get a consolation prize for post #420.

Do people not realize this contest is still going on? I'm shocked more people aren't trying to win the Super CP with Devo 7e.

Not that many people know I think, broke a motor on my quad, part will be in tomorrow, state side vendors work great for fast parts, got a couple of spares and more battery's as well. Might look at getting something else from OO.

I feel like an idiot. I just bought a Super CP with Devo 7e off ebay, this contest had me wanting one so bad. Didn't realize until after the fact that the regular OOModel price beat what I paid by $30. (I paid $150, OOModel lists at $120). How are OOModel's shipping charges?

Not sure yet, seems quite reasonable for something coming from the Asian market though. HK is one of the horrid ones about shipping costs. I will say that they packed my little quad great, double boxed, shrink wrapped, taped, and a royal PITA to open. Can not ask for anything better.

I don't like the inconsistent or obscure shipping costs on a lot of sites. Hobbyking wants me to log in to paypal before I even get a shipping quote? No way jose. Oomodel.com seems to have some items free, other items not specified... it makes me assume the prices are so low because I'm going to get whacked on shipping.

Really I never have to log into PP to get a shipping price from HK, that is weird. I just have to get to my address.

That's odd. I think you may be doing something wrong. I use PayPal and I use HobbyKing...A LOT. I've never had to do that.

I agree, I am thinking he just does not know how to use the HK site since I have never had to sign in to anything other than my HK profile to get a shipping rate, and my profile to make it easier.
