New Creations R/C Good?? Bad?? Please advise

Guys

Im about to make a purchase of three airplanes from New Creations R/C based in Willis Texas. < http://www.newcreations-rc.com > Having never purchased from them I was looking to see if anyone has feedback, good or bad for them. They did reply back to an inquiry e-mail in a reasonable amount of time.

Thanks for you time!

Tommy in NY

That's Kirk Massey's shop. He's been around a long time and has an excellent reputation. Definitely on my good vendor list.

Kirk is a legend in the industry and a darn good man to boot - you'll not be dissapointed with your purchase. Call him sometime, and you'll see why he doesn't have time to reply to emails quickly.

I have purchased from Kirk off and on for at least 6 years. All orders have been received on time and well packed - to Australia.

Top rate shop with a great range.

I've also ordered from them and had an excellent experience each time.

Thanks for the info guys.

My e-mail was answered by someone named Matthew in less then 24 hours. Thats damn good in my opinion!

Comming from you Shawn thats good to know because Castle Creations ranks #1 in my book!

Now where is my Pixie 20 I sent in for reprogramming! ESC #2 took a dump on me!

Thanks again guys it makes buying 3 old kits a lot more secure for me!

How about this?
Order placed Thursday 3:30PM EDT from Northeastern Pennsylvania via telephone. Included ten minute conversation about weather and general airplane talk.
Order received Saturday 10:30 AM EDT. If my calculations are correct that's about fourty-three hours from order placement to receipt. From Texas to Pennsylvania in 43 hours.
NEED I SAY MORE??????

newcreations-rc.com Dont leave out the <->.

I'll throw in my two cents worth about Kirk: I have been doing business with him since 1996 or '97 and quickly learned that his word is better than gold and his knowledge and patience is boundless. Couldn't do business with a better man.

I'm fortunate to live close enough to New Creations to be able to drive up on Saturdays. Kirk and Matthew( usually answers the phone ) are great to deal with. Kirk's shop is wall-to-wall electric R/C. You won't be disappointed!

Finally scrubbed together enough pennies to order the following:

Scorpio Nieuport, Simprop Spad and Pfalz.

They were friendly via E-Mail reduced the cost of the kits without me begging or pleading <volume discount?> and treated me right.

I cant wait to blow the dust off these old kits and see whats what!

Thanks for the advice guys!
