Just want to let people know especially those who are planning to order Lipo batteries from Hobby City.

I placed an order that contains 4 6S 5000mah Lipo on 5/26 and opted for the fast EMS shipping. I got my tracking number the next day but until today (6/2) I can't see any progress on the tracking number. It doesn't even show any information on the Hong Kong post website.

I talk to one of the customer service and checked their message board where I found out that there are plenty of delays on other people orders as well due to Airport screening of Lipo batteries and in some cases the Airport will return the package back to the sender.

I don't know when I'll get my stuff but Hobby City should post a notice on their website to keep people informed instead finding it the hard way!

Buying CHINEESE made goods from an AMERICAN hobby shop is much better than buying a Chinese made good directly from china. That simple.
Sorry for taking this off topic.

They assemble them in Vegas. (Read: Solider them together and shrink wrap them.)

I am having the same issue. Ordered 6S packs for my Logo 500 and coughed for the express delivery. The tracking numbers from HobbyKing yield no results.

Not too happy.

the more lipo's you buy, the more they beat on the kids working in the lipo sweat shops in china making the batteries, to increase production.

Yes, please keep this thread on the topic. If you want to bash about buying non-american product there's already a thread on RR about that topic.

The purpose of this thread is to warn people if they're planning to purchase Lipo batteries from hobby city and to track if people ever receive their delayed order from HC.
