I went to place a decent $$ order & the popup said that the Portland warehouse is moving & things will be in disarray for a week. Okay, I gather that, but why did my light order all of a sudden cost $36.50 in shipping costs for the US warehouse when it is almost triple what it normally is? Weight is not the problem as I dropped a few items that had most weight & it only dropped a couple of dollars???

I have placed over 57 orders over the few years & only the overseas orders are high on shipping.

Ditto and Tower shows only the super saver which I paid into the future and they have less applicable to coupons. What is the point of getting in my face? To tick me off? Oc ourse they could have eliminated Supersaver when they bought Tower but.........

Guys, Hobby King got caught again by the FTC. What happened the last time was there was a separate company running the warehouse, they declared Bankruptcy, move the warehouse and reopened under another name. Took a month or so and for the inquiry about the high shipping; bets are it did come international as there wasn't an operating USA warehouse when you ordered.

The FTC?


First they run afoul of the FCC....and now the FTC. So, we are funding some duplicitous, trade-scamming organization, run by people either controlled by or part of a nation that sees no wrong in intentionally screwing us over?

Time to find another way in this hobby. Canít stop buying crap from them altogether as probably 99% of our hobby stuff is manufactured by them; maybe itís time to return to building and re-using components from retired units.

It would be nice if there were electronics made here, to offer an alternative to buying their crap. Or to find, and buy, stuff from Taiwan.

Always love the rumor mill stories that crop up with HK, they never fail to amuse. They never have links to back up the stories though, odd.

They got jammed up with alphabet agency, the FCC.
