Hi All,

Headsup RC has been a nice stepping stone for me getting into the hobby. I had a HZ Champ then got interested in the Towel flying wing which was written up in Make magazine. I found headsup while searching the internet looking for parts to build a towel. It was the only site that I could find that really told me useful info about the parts; which was great because where else was I gonna learn? (Here. I know now.) My LHS is 100 miles away and the nearest club is 70 miles. Once I had put together a shopping cart full of stuff for a towel I realized for another $30.00 I could get a pretty cool plane so I ended up buying a GWS Slow Stick and putting together a radio and power system for that. After I had everything together I emailed them a copy and paste of my shopping cart and they made a few well explained suggestions for changes which actually brought the cost way down. Now I am building a Blue Core flying wing from plans posted in the flying wing forum and filling up another nice cart full of goodies at headsup rc!

Happy flying!

Absolutely the fastest shipping of anyone I have dealt with, I ordered a motor and ESC on Sunday night, I had it in my hands Wednesday with the mail delivery! I have ordered with them several times and always experienced the same level of service, and then there is the $2 shipping on most items...$2 shipping!

I ordered from them after reading several glowing endorsements on this message board, and I have not been disappointed!

I HIGHLY recommend them!

Having been in this hobby for so long I rarely buy anything any more except perhaps an occasional battery. I can usually find what I need in my personal inventory better known as unflyable airframes-
However after having spent some time looking over their site I was impressed by the depth of their inventory

I will be keeping them in mind when the need to go beyond my personal inventory.

These guys are great. I get shipped notices within a couple of hours of ordering and superb tech service. Plus they post actual data on motor/prop/battery combos which really helps.

They are my go to source and I go from there if they are out of stock or do not supply.

I think they have the best customer service not only in RC, but more broadly and rank #1 IMHO vs. any other e-commerce site I use.

Looks like they sell the highest quality low cost motors. Not quite as good as the big names but far better than other low cost ones.

Yesterday I made an order from them and forgot to get a couple things on my list, but no big deal because of their $2.00 shipping. I just made another order. I have done that in the past and sent them an e-mail and they got right back in touch with me to let me know they would combine my 2 orders and knock the $2.00 off. I love their Firepower motor's. I got a couple Tower Pro hi-torque servo's yesterday for $4.00 ea. They do the same job as HS-55's for $6.00 less ea.////Dave/ZZ

HURC is the first place I go when I need something RC. Their prop and power data on the motors is good, many other vendors let you guess. Very good service and inexpensive and fast shipping!

Wow, all a person needs to do is mention HURC and up pops a long thread of praise.

It's even more fun to not be complaining about the motors, I have three.
