Giantcod.co.uk server problems or worse?

Can't seem to access giantcod.co.uk , anyone know what the story is?

He was starting up a nice little low cost rc supplies store for us here in the uk, hope he's not fallen victim the the damned credit crunch.

Yup - hope all is OK with GC and Rob!

I'm hoping that it's the same problem he had before - there was some mix up with paying his web site host, and it went off air for a coupla days. With a bit of luck he'll be back again.

Anyone else heard anything more?

Hi, george.

Al's Hobbies are one of the bigger companies and should be fine! The owners son is an international model jet pilot - so they are serious about the business.
Might be worth contacting them again.

GiantCod should be OK. They are still in business, and have had troubles with the Web Hosting company shutting the web-site down because of the amount of traffic - even though Rob pays for an unlimited package (according to an email GC have sent)

Well I hope you're right, GC is a brilliant rc resource for us in the UK who are continually ripped off on everything we buy.

Unfortunately, I fear the worst for another UK distributor, freestyle-rc.co.uk who carried the Extreme Flight Extra amongst others..
