Wow,I used to wait a lot to get my stuff from Hobby King. You really needed to be extremely patient.

This time around a big bundle was at my doorstep in less than a week from China to Canada.

I hope it wasn't a fluke...

They've always been fast for me. They even listened to me when I asked to pack the batteries in the box better for my next order.

I once waited three weeks just to get the order packed. And all items were in stock!

Sometimes its hit or miss with them ive noticed. Sometimes I can get things in AK in less than a week, other times its a couple weeks.

Wish it was more consistent. EMS is too expensive for the day or 2 you get faster in my opinion.

Shipping has been fast to central PA.
I guess it's the price you pay for lower prices.
Now if they would get their search engine straightened out on their website it would be a lot easier to find things.
I spent hours comparing batteries yesterday before actually placing the order. It's frustrating having to wade through 9 pages of batteries when looking for a 6s lipo.

EMS gets a faster turn around time because of it's time requirements. I have had product wait over a week before being shipped thru registered mail, but I expect to wait three weeks for my stuff.

In any case, I think HK/HC has come a long way since two years ago.

They even have their own R&D now.

I use the search option alot because of this.

If I am looking for a battery with certain requirements I will search that. Once you do there are filters down the page to narrow your search even more.

For example search 6s1p, then you can filter out everything but 25c packs or 5000mAh, etc.

I wish I could have bought stock in HK. I knew with this economy they would explode. I feel sorry for the domestic companies though.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

for those of you having trouble selecting batteries from HK take a look at this page:
