$280 Order Placed. We'll See If It Ever Arrives.


It's nothing I need urgently. More of a swan call for my business and this company. Ordered 3/15/11 in the evening. We'll see how long it takes for the tr #, then for the obligatory, "Something's out of stock," to the actual shipment date and then to the arrival date.

Here's my speculation:

Ordered: 3/15/11 evening

Tr #: 3/17/11 morning

OOS on various parts: 3/23/11

Shipment of remaining parts: 3/25/11

Arrival of missing and damaged parts: 4/6/11


And here's how it should (but never will) be:

Order placed: 3/15/11

tr #: 3/15/11

Order efficiently packed and shipped by
efficient and happy Asians: 3/16/11

Package arrives, all pieces present and in new condition: 3/18/11


In contrast, I just ordered a $130 heli from aligntrexstore.com, just down the street from you.

Order placed: 3/15/11 evening.

tr #: 3/15/11 evening.

Shipment: Presumably today, 3/16/11 as HE EMAILS AND PM'S ME FREQUENTLY.

50/50. More like 30/70. And not in a good way. <_<

I've NEVER had same day or even next day shipments like a lot of others have. I've always had to wait several days for my order to ship.

My last order (~$80) took 2 days to ship, but I still had it here on the east coast within a week of ordering.

For a free shipping service, I think that's pretty hard to complain about. But, I've never received broken/missing product either, which would be an issue.
