You're point is to latch onto an issue and troll for your amusement. I think everyone got your point although its rather pointless.

I'm sure you're not as silly as you make out. You know full well that batteries are easily damaged and that care must be taken. In my experience model aircraft fliers tend to be a lot more educated on battery husbandry than our friends who drive for fun.

60 day battery warranty is more than generous. If you can't figure out a battery is damaged in that time than that is unfortunate. Could you damage a battery after running it to LVC 8 times? Absolutely. Surely you're smart enough to know that current is but one what that a battery could puff?

Nothing like an expert professing loudly their knowledge on a given topic.

LOL. Won't make their IR rise? Are you sure about that? When you stress a battery you can expect the IR in increase with each event. Dropping a battery to 3.v under load will cause permanent damage with a measurable increase in IR . Over charging will cause an increase in IR. Anyone like to guess what effect temperature has on the charge state of a battery?

Finally got my order I placed on April 7! From Intl. warehouse. Order# 17103756. It had been sitting in Chicago for over a month. Orders that go through New York are much faster. What's the deal HK?

Free shipping minimum increased


What's up with the sudden increase for free shipping. $50 seemed like a reasonable amount. $80 makes it a little less likely to make up a spontaneous order.

they discounted the stuff they can not sell.
no stock of the good stuff.
their product brands have all changed.
the known reliable products are gone.
unable to comment on a product so we can not get feedback good or bad.

meh, the Turnigy blue lipos are awesome and were in stock, at least when i bought some a few months ago.
their RC cars are pretty good too, just parts supply sucks.
helicopters- well that did die off, but a lot of other places too.

Perhaps when they see sales #'s fall even further they will bring it back.
It makes me think that HK is changing their business model, relying on less sales/higher profits.
Personally I'm into r/c ground vehicles, boats, cars, trucks so I feel like they've been trying to get rid of me for a while.
Their flagrant lack of support and replacement parts in these 3 areas made it so that in the past if I couldn't cross reference a vehicle with another brand a purchase was out of the question.
I've been buying from HK for many years and it's not getting any better from my perspective. So I make smaller orders of less product (usually throwing in something I didn't need to make it to $50.00.
I'm no longer willing to buy anything from them that requires replacement parts. It would make no sense as I don't own a 3d printer.
Perhaps they think if they sell 3d printers they'll not have to carry replacement parts at all.
