Whatever happened to the Worlds Largest Online RC store ?

The latest Website is literally unusable ..... log in ... click on the topic you want to scroll through and then watch the sweet dandelion petals do their circular dance. IF you get to the page you want - try go back and and that silly dandelion appears again - but now it has an attitude ! Its not letting you go anywhere ...

In desperation - you think its your own PC that's locked up ... you close browser and start again ... Oh Woe .... again !!

OK - so you've managed to get products listed - you've bitten lip and suffered the dandelion ...

WHERE HAVE ALL THE PRODUCTS GONE ??? What happened to the largest online product line ?

Am I only one who's noticed that Banggood is fast approaching that title ? AND often beating HK prices ?

I'm not interested in Hk Deals of the Week ... or the bargain Sales - Why ? Because most are NOT IN STOCK !!

Second - I do not accept to receive Email news .. so I click NO or X to not have ... but it appears it makes no difference - it defaults to send them anyway.

Wakey ! Wakey ! HK - time to get up and at 'em ...

They're definitely improving again on stock. Sailboats are back in stock after being OOS for a while.
They still need to work on the Slope Soarers, hardly anything to offer us slope soarers. I see the RCRCM Tomcat newly listed which is a great airframe but it's expensive compared to other outlets.
I'd love to see some of the FlyFly models nice and cheap in the UK warehouse. Also the Tjirc range, especially the TinyQ which is a great airframe at a great price.

HobbyKings website is like cancer right now. Just destroys my phone and is completely unusable. Wanted to get some 4S batteries but will just go elsewhere.

I'm in to cars, trucks and boats. Nothing there for me.
It used to be a fun exciting place to visit. Not anymore.

I agree. I opened many threads about hobbyking cars, but the time tell me that HK parts support is a nightmare and parts are discontinued quickly. As for the batteries, the choice is very poor and the prices not even interesting. HK is dead for me since months. And the website is so heavy and slow that you need a gamer pc to make it works.

Now, when i want something, i don't go on HK anymore, i take a look on banggood, aliexpress, amazon or even hobby shops in my country.

That is a possible gain with HK becoming a 'has-been' ... the possible saviour of local hobby shop.

Stretched hope I know ... but ....
