I ordered a couple of weeks ago, and received my order no problem. Additionally, despite the periodic mixed reviews, I've never had any trouble ordering and receiving from either xheli or HobbyPartz...several orders in the last two months or so.

i've ordered a ton of hardware from them and each item has arrived in a very timely manner.
just don't expect any sort of customer service when it comes time to need to have a DOA item swapped out.

One of my orders..about a month ago, I received two gens Ace 3800mAH 4s packs to run in parallel for a multirotor.

one pack had a bad cell. It arrived showing 1.8v
The other pack had two bad cells. both way under the storage voltage.

I resurrected the packs by using my Hyperion charger to get the bad cells up to about 3.6v, and then allowing the charger to trickle discharge the good cells down to 3.6v so that I could charge all 4 cells at the same rate and not have it take hours and hours...if you have tried to resurrect a very low cell before, you know what I am referring to.

I sent them an email..no reply now for approx a month.
I don't know why I continue to order hardware from them, but they are a good source for my hobbywing speedo's..I just won't order batteries from them.

well i went with this vendor because i like these sky lipo batteries.did you ever watch the video about them ?
they have a protective metal plate on both sides of the battery .helps protect the battery and disperse some heat too .and the pack stays nice and flat too .
havent seen one puff up yet .

thanks for jumping in here .

i have registered with them but it is not worth even doing because you dont get any special offers or anything and it dont help when they rip you off so i wouldnt recomend it .

you will always receive your order for IN STOCK items from hobbypartz/nitroplanes/xheli rather quickly..as in within a business week after ordering..depending on where you are located.

you may not like what you receive though..and I'm talking batteries.
its very hit or miss, but so is hobbyking with regards to their lipo packs.
95% of the time, there will be no issues with a battery, 5% will seem like 100% if your last two battery orders were all boxes of fail!

I placed an order and even though the lipos were in stock it never shipped. I called and emailed a got BS'd (it will ship today) and it still has not shipped.

I charged it back on my credit card. Too bad Gens Ace are good batteries but I won't tolerate this kind of crap from a vendor. They say they ship next day but don't believe it.

Gotta find a new lipo supplier.....
