here is a scam 'for sale' web site that was brought to my attention on another RC forum:

http://www.hpirchobby.com/

Hate to see newbies get beat by these guys....

Regards,

Glen

Here is a large part of their 'about us' page:

... If you are looking for a particular gown that you do not see on our site. Please contact us as we can get many nationally advertised dresses for you at extremely discounted prices. If you haven't a slight stature, please don't worry. We can make the dress with plus size and hid your limitation. If you are in a hurry, we will make your dress overtime and send it to you in time.

But it's a good deal a 500FL for 199.00, how can I pass that up.

Yeah after looking into the contact page and saw only a email and no address or phone numbers it's smells and even there FAQ is fail not one question or answer!

+1 Thanks for that update, good to be aware of these places. Usually only go to the big 3, helidirect, amainhobbies, and readyheli. Never had an issue with them, and shipping is always fast.
