Has any one here done business. with Hobby King International Hobby Store?
I am thinking of buying some battery's from them, but don't know much about them. Hong Kong kinda worry's me.(as far as having to pay with a check card)
Thanks

I have ordered about 6 times from them
with no problems ,I hear they now have
a branch in the USA . I always use Credit Card
The only problem is that if you do get something
defective from them you will have to pay postage
back to HongKong you may want to ask them about
USA branch

hobbyking / hobbycity

go to http://www.wattflyer.com search for hobbycity.com

There are a lot of discussion on the pros and cons. I've been ordering from them and had no problems with the service.

Just made my first order with HC

Ordered Sunday night late and it was delivered Friday(today)before noon(Houston,Tx). All in all I would say it was a good experience. You need to order using the most expensive shipping method,if not,expect it to be several weeks for delivery. You might save some on shipping if you dont need it very quick.

IMO, it's a little early being your first order to make the determination that you must use the more expensive "EMS" shipping to get it in a reasonable amount of time.

My first order like yours was EMS and it did come quick, my second was regular and it still arrived in under 7 days. Now when I order I always use the slower shipping and haven't had issues and longest time was 12 days and this was due to me trying to modify the order after I had placed it. The key is to never order any item not in stock or it really slows things up. My $.02

Im just going by what some personal friends of mine have experienced. There have been some that have had to wait up to 4 weeks + to save 10.00 shipping. Im sure that dosent happen in all cases,but my statement is true,if you want it quickly,you had better take the most expensive option,if not,you can take your chances. Its just a personal choice.
