This thread is concerned with Hobby-Lobby, please do not drag your United Hobbies disputes here. There are 2 other, more appropriate threads for that.

Good point, I have no idea how the conversation digressed. I apologize whole heartedly to HL, as they are such an excellent company and in no way associated with World/United Hobbies. So does anyone have anything to report regarding the axi they had on sale Tuesday?

Depends on whether or not you are a gambling man
Do a search for em in "vendor talk". You'll see what the hubbub is all about.

Can't go wrong with Hobby Lobby though

Just read some posts regarding United Hobbies & it sounds like just a bunch of Hubub. Some unhappy customers but mostly happy. I will place a small order this evening & see how it goes, those prices are too good to pass up.

Thanks

I was trying to talk you out of it. THEY ARE HORRIBLE.
When they're ebay account's feedback gets too bad, they change names and they do this on a regular basis

Like I said, if you like to gamble, go for it. I personally will take guaranteed customer service and support for a couple extra bucks ANYDAY.
Good luck...

Brian

They had an average feedback of 90-93% on ebay with 1000's of sales. With 4000 sales, that's 280-400 people who fell they got ripped off, mistreated or lied to. Pretty good odds, but I'll pass.

Take it to another thread in the Vendor-Talk Forums. This is about HOBBY LOBBY CRASH SALES.

(For the record, there are multiple ways to "spoof" your rating at eBay. Buy at your own risk.)

I just placed a small order & will report back on how long it takes to get it. I really don't care about customer service, when your paying this kinda of cheap price for a servo, you just throw it in the garbage if it goes bad. I have ordered several times from other Hong Kong Vendors, one guy took 5 weeks to get 4 servos to me & another guy only 2 weeks. I'll let you know how it goes.
