Is it a rumor or true about no more Li-Po's from Hobby King?


I've been hearing rumors that you can't get the higher MA Li-Po's from Hobby King into the States.

I've heard you can get 2200 or below but the large MAmp have some kind of restriction on shipping.

Has anyone heard or had any problems getting the higher MA Li-Po's?

I just got an order of (3) 6s 5000mAh from them on Thursday. Pretty fast turnaround (I ordered last weekend). I think they were having problems about a month ago but have since resolved the issue.

Does anyone bother to do any research before posting here on RC Groups in the B & C Forum?

Must not or there would not be nearly as many post.

There are numerious Threads on the new shipping regulations (new as in close to a year old now) ,many addationaly proposed ones and such.

Flying LiPolys mayl one day be as rare as flying Dinosaurs but no time soon.

I am flying over Wed. morning in my GulfStream to pick up a pair of giant Pandas and should have room left for a few thousand LiPolys if someone can get a group order together fast enough.

ANYTHING can be transported with the right transport company, packing, and fees.

That's what I was thinking too, but you can get stoned on these forums for talking bad about Zippy/Rhino/Turnigy. They have their place in this hobby, they just aren't for me.
