I just want to report that I have very good
experience www.aircraft-world.com.

Nippon Dave, the owner of aircraft-world
was willing to voluntarily partially
replace (he replaced a different model)
an ESC that I burnt in a fashion not covered
by warrantee.

It sure is. And, in my experience Dave has packaged and sent the items the same day I ordered them. So, they get here as fast as the Japan and US postal services can move them to my mailbox, which as been within 7 days everytime - even counting Sundays and holidays.

Hi Guy,s I have to add to that and say that the service form Dave at aircraft world is second to None. Delivery is fast and well packaged, prices are very fair and delivery cost of fixed $2.50 makes the overall price the best around.

I wont but any where else now as I know I can rely on aircraft world 100%

Thanks Dave.

P.S Heli lguys, dave is now stocking the C40 range, and at teh best prices I have found $129. I can find anyone who is better than that for a C40 Haker!

Regards

Shaun

Dave is Awesome

Ordered from Aircraft World about 10 times now.

I'm totally blown away by his great selection and prices. Since you can order through PayPal there are no CC hassles and the needless endless typing
other sights put you through. Dave always sends a quick email reply with a firm ship date. $2.50 S/H from Japan??

Check him out!!

Agreed

I am on my 5th or 6th order with AirCraftWorld. Dave is prompt and you just can't beat the shipping and his low prices. I was afraid about the Japan shipping times, don't be.

He is great with questions as well. Give him a try!

I placed an order last wednesday evening (18th), received it yesterday!(23rd) Everything was correct and as I ordered it. There was only one small problem, I forgot to order some other things I need... Sorry Dave, Guess I'll have to place another order after the Holidays.

I am very happy with Aircraft-World and always look there first when I'm shopping. Also have a very nice Product Data section on the website.

Thanks Again Dave,
Rick Tucker

Dave proves himself once again.

Ordered a couple of motors and folding prop last Tuesday or Wednesday. Received them yesterday (and installed them last night ).

And, I agree, his website layout is very easy to navigate and order through.

Keep up the good work!

Today is Christmas, yesterday I received my Hacker B20 with ESC and prop adapter from Dave. I ordered it the previous Wednesday, he told me it shipped thursday.

I gotta say I was in shock that over the holidays, I can order something from overseas, and it shows up in 6 days, which counts a weekend... awesome. I'll be buying from there more often.

Thanks Dave.

As a competitor I have to hand it to Dave. He has certainly upped the anty.

It is amazing to me that he can ship for so little from Japan and in many cases beat the shipping times in our own country using USPS! I wish our Postal service was as well organized!

Still I don't understand the $2.50 postage. Is that what it costs to send to US from Japan?

I just looked up postal rates from Japan to USA.

The cost for 501 gms to 1 kilo is $17.18 US
The cost for 1.01 Kilo to 2 kilos is $28.43 US

Dave! How do you do it?

Hi Sal,

The Japanese post has a "small parcel" rate that starts at 50g packages, and rises with each 100g increment. Although it's a better deal for us than standard air post, we still end up paying about half the shipping bill on average, and pay for all the handling and packaging. It's true that the superb Japanese postal service deserves great credit - couldn't do it without them...

And, at the risk of this sounding like a mutual admiration club, I guess this is a good time to point out that Nesail has been a major influence on Air Craft from the beginning. I bought one of the first Filip Slope kits from you years ago, and still fly it more often than anything else (except my Bandit, maybe...). Now that I'm running Air Craft, I can appreciate the work that goes into a shop with such a wide product range, and wonder how YOU have done it all these years. Good job!

Merry Christmas,

David
