Nitroplanes Website Crashes My Computer and Mobile Phone

I can hardly load the home pages for Nitroplanes and Hobbypartz. I know I don't have the newest computer, but I don't have these issues on other websites. I assume it is because of all the graphics and photos that get added to the web pages.

Also, I have the same issues on my smarty pants phone. Any way that these websites be made more mobile friendly?

I just tried the website on both Firefox and Chrome and the website is loading find. I also tried it on my phone and it's also working fine. I know that the IT team was working on a mobile version of the website but it's still in the testing phase.

I have a 5 year old WinXP machine with IE8 and the pages eventually load, but it is so slow I guess I am due for an upgrade

Hopefully your mobile version is ready soon!

Any one has problem loading all nitroplane websites on their tablets and ipad? I do. Every time I try to load, it then default to google search engine and nothing displayed. I did try to reset my tablet and updated the flash player, but still has the same problem. Other website like Bananahobby and Hobbyking seem to be fine. Any idea.

I have had that happen I my HTC phone. Don't know what causes it, but eventually it starts working again.

Their website is very graphic intensive and bandwidth intensive. Both are not good for mobile phones, tablets, and those of us with older computers.

I have resorted to creating bookmarks in my browser to certain pages on their website because navigating from their homepage usually results in browser crashes and redirects like the one you described

Thanks for the info..are they get ahead of themselve for high intended graphics for their websites If people cannot view and shop on their mobiles, they will loose some of the market. My Samsung tablet and Ipad just get updated with current software, but still cannot load the web page...I just quit trying..

Nitroplanes and hobbypartz both use Yahoo storefronts. For years Yahoo has had trouble resolving to some ISP DNS servers.

You could try a public dns server to see if it resolves the issue. Try opendns.com

You may need some help changing dns servers.
