Nice video with your fun moments, do you have any info on the planes in that video ? I think I saw an extra 260 from hobbyking in there, am I right ? Is the owner happy with it ? The reason I ask is I've just ordered one myself.

All the flying you saw in the vid is me flying my own planes. There was not a hobbyking 260 tho. If i can remember right there was a passer X sail plane(RED), hyperion yak54(profile), easystar(onboard cam), parkzone corsair, 3d shop xl yak(friends) and a hobbyking spitfire. I think thats all, maybe... my girlfriend was in there too. not flying though. those hobbyking planes should be here tomorrow. Ill post a little tease if I get them.

Hi I would not buy from Hobby King I bought some batteries that took for ever to get and another order is 2 months old and still nothing I have emailed over a week ago got an email response right away that in a couple of days some one would contact me, never heard a thing emailed again still no reply. I am out a lot of money more than I will ever save by using them, plus the aggravation is terrible. call them on the phone with a complaint and their English gets so bad you can not communicate with them. BYE Bye HK

Well, all I can say is that you are getting things for far less then half of normal hobby shops and the products are shipping from China. I have placed 11 orders with hobbyking and am quite impressed with the service and products i have received. Shipping times after the order is places has varied from 2-12 days depending of how busy they are. After you get a tracking number, it is out of their hands and no longer there fault on when it arrives. It sucks you had a bad experience, but i'm hooked. If you want to save money, your gonna have to wait a little longer. I'm sure you are not "out" any money. Use the online chat and cancel your order and it will be so.

Good luck,

I have purchased items from them, lipos, esc's and a few motors.
Takes about 10 to 14 days to get them shipped to my post office box.
Of course I knew that when I ordered. Everything I've ordered was shipped and not backordered.
Prices are real good. So far, the lipos are holding up well. Myself, I can't complain about them at all. And its a really good thing they opened up a
USA warehouse!! I just hope they stock it up good!

ok guys,
I got the planes today and started putting them together. The mustang is going to take another day to complete but the little yak was easy. I will be flying tomorrow and editing later that day. expect to see the review for the yak around tuesday and the mustang to follow. Any requests for product reviews? I will have a review of hobbykings quattro charger soon too!

The Yak 54 two part review is up on youtube. check it our. As far as the mustang goes, the weather on the coast has been foggy. It may be a few more days before I get to maden her. Review hopefully in about one week on that one.
