Same here - Ordered last week from USA warehouse, but it still hasn't been shipped out.... Conversely, I ordered a bunch of other stuff from HK's HQ overseas and it shipped out the next day. So with both orders placed on the same day, it is a virtual certainty that I will receive the one from Hong Kong long before the one ordered stateside.

It's possible that they are not... Also possible that they underestimated the cost of sending all of these huge packages for 1 cent.

It usually takes about 5 days just to clear the warehouse!

Maybe the warehouse out by you, but when I ordered my lipos from the USA warehouse they were ready to go 2-3 days. Dunno though, maybe I'm wrong.

Small items are sent a lot quicker, large stuff such as kits take awhile to get sent.

Same air frame; two other threads:

Mine B&F: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1462786 .

And: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1429041 .


Should we have all combined into one thread or pick one to be the primary?

Just got mine today, 5 days from HK to Aus via EM$$$$$. Very nice, look forward to getting it all happening but as far as airframe quality goes (electronics not tested yet) it is 10/10..........yes it is not perfect scale but there is scratch building for that, this is a cheap foamy....just fly it.

HK's reply to my request


Well this was quick--Will see what happens

Thanks for contacting the HobbyKing Support Team.

We understand the concern. I have checked and your order is currently in the final stages of processing and is expected to be posted shortly. I have also checked the stock level of this item and we still have stock in the USA warehouse. Rest assured that your order will be posted shortly.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.
Regards.

I also ordered one from the USA warehouse, got the .01 shipping too. From my past experience, the .01 shipping is always Parcel Post. I read on the USPS website that when shipping Parcel Post on a commercial account, there needs to be a minimum of 50 pieces. I'm guessing they (USA warehouse) need to wait until they have 50 orders before they can ship.
I ordered mine last weekend, still hasn't shipped yet either.

A point to note -- 6' single piece wing!

It lays from the back of the driver's seat right to the tailgate in my 2007 Explorer.

And it covers 1/3 of the width of the cargo area.

So you gotta have a plan a good way haul the wing.

Also, virtually all the weight is in the wing too; the fuselage weights next to nothing.
