I got one with that. But maybe when you bought the camera too it was sent via a different postage method.

Btw I've made various cheap orders from hobbyking over the last month or two.

I used to get items via unregistered mail no problem, but the last 4-5 I didn't get a single item( and I should def have them by now).

I have got registered mail from them.

But who knows maybe my postman is keeping them.
Items just havent turned up when sent unrecorded? Man am I going to be pissy if I they dont turn up, I have to order again and wait some more! What happend with the items that didnt turn up? did you get a refund of anyone?

Yep nvr turned up. Nope Hobbyking told me they don't accept liability for missing items sent vis unregistered mail. Which is fair enough. I only chose that method because previously unregistered seemed to get here a little quicker.

But things are different on ebay I think. Most sellers will send a replacemnt after a certain amount of time passes if they don't arrive.

hmmm think I'll give it until the end of the week before I start considering that they're not going to turn up.

Interesting how toolworld or whatever its was called has now pulled all its items off ebay

I checked the ebay notice RE dispatch of my items and cant see a tracking number, even the same mic as you bought doesnt seem to have a tracking number assigned...

Maybe I'll order another cam later just to cover myself... prolly good to have a couple anyways

Thanks Nigel, thats where I was looking to get my next cam from... with the postage included in the price they work out similar to other sellers.

I'll prolly go with a 420tvl just to keep the cost down... I'm likely to fry or smash something in my early days of FPV.

What was the delivery time like? the usual?
