I tell ya what Singpost is extremely slow, it took them over 2 weeks to deliver to Perth and that is meant to be express....... HobbyKing need to dump Singpost "they are too slow"....

Shaun.
My bit of advice is NEVER use the singpost option. Pay the little bit more and use EMS. I only ever use EMS when buying a plane, for little orders (like the 5 free flight models I bought to give my kids from santa) I use registered. I will never use singpost after just one dealing. My issue was HK sent it singpost even though I never ticked the option, so now it is EMS for planes.

Now to the vixen, damn I wish I had the money. Fun fact, the micro mig 15 from E-flite that I forgot I ordered 3-4 months ago, and I always honour an order. Costs the same bloody price as this, bloody ridiculous isn't it. I am so very tempted to say I don't want the mig and buy this, I even have the right batteries and a spare rx.

But alas it will have to wait until the new year now. Very nice plane HK, great job. Now get build me a new twin lol.

Hey ya Spudz, ummm I did choose EMS and they sent it via Singpost and it is not the first time either.

As for the Vixen, I shall wait for flight reports and for Aust Warehouse.
