I know this might sound a bit funny carbd89 but did you make sure you ordered them from the USA warehouse? i only ask that as i've seen this sort of post before and it turned out that they were in the HK international warehouse but thought they were in the USA one.

When going onto the HK website and you want to order from the USA or another local warehouse,look over to the right hand side and you will see a quarter of the way down six or so other HK warehouses,just click on the one you want and order away,then it will come from that warehouse,i'm not saying you didn't do this but i'm just saying so others might understand too.

Welcome aboard carbd.

Yeah, they ship from the warehouse ordered from and you can't mix warehouses on the same order. On the left hand side of the home page at the top of the page is and option for USA/CANADA and GLOBAL. Selecting USA/CANADA will show you all the USA items which will ship from the USA warehouse. If ordered from the GLOBAL menu, they will be shipped from HongKong even if in stock in the US.

One piece of bad news is that the batteries may be a problem from HongKong. Seems some shipments containing lipos have been returned to HK by customs. See https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1807627

Hope your stuff comes through. Expect 3-4 weeks for delivery.

headsuprc.com in Fl has a good inventory and ships the same day for $2. Prices are a little higher but service and delivery are excellent.

Just make sure you input your location, and select the correct warehouse. Its a bit confusing at first I know but once you have done it once, you wont do it again Please let us know what happens with the batteries as I am very curious

The longest holdup for me is in US customs. This is a vendor that I order 'spares and 'might need it sometime' items'. However, items from the US warehouse arrive pretty quick but there inventory is miniscule compared to the Global warehouse.

Hey, it will might be a great valentine present.
