Hobbyking shipping prices increase

Have you guys noticed how much shippping prices @ HK increased , also less options at check out ?

Just try to buy a plane no matter wich one, you'll notice at once.

Thats crazy now its almost as expensive to buy a 3DHS SLICK rather than HK SLICK.

Big mistake from HK, they'r going to see how planes demand will drop like they never expected.

Guess it depends where in the world you are. I've not noticed any increase. For me in the UK including shipping and taxes the 3DHS 51" Slick is about $350 and the HK clone version is $145

I'd not call that 'almost as expensive' (though the ethics of the clone version is highly questionable, obviously)

hey jetplaneflyer,
i'm thinking about huckin-up to a 51"ajs, they are both manufactured in china but i would "ASS-U-ME" that 3dhs would pay more for qc than h/king's supplier does. if you have first or second hand (even a rumor) knowledge of any info i might could use the guidance, maybe the (real) weight difference also

thanks for any heads up,

I get free shipping from US company's. Your may pay a little more but what has happened to me (see post) I'm going to pay it for now on. Do not trust over sea shipping or Hobbyking support. Even if it gets lost your money will be tied up for months. Hobbyking will wait and wait for it to show up and your hobby suffers

They have to jack up their prices, to pay for all the junk that doesn't work that you return to them.
