Confused about just being able to select what you want for a change?

Pick, choose, enjoy. You're getting what you want instead of someone else's idea of the ultimate combo.

i had a bad experience with them, they sent me the wrong combo and blamed me for their mistake, then told me to never order from them again... so i dont, i order from performanceplusrc mainly.... he will change out the parts if he supplies them... but really any online store will do the "custom" kits if you email them

I have never had a problem with them. I had a couple of orders that were goofed up and they have always promptly corrected the errors with no trouble or hassle. They promptly answered emails. I have no second thoughts about buying from them.

I order parts from them, but never bought a single kit. Even called them to work out a deal and they still wouldn't match or come close to prices from other vendors.

They have always, and I mean always, made good on any problem with parts or shipping. I have never run into any reason to not do business with them....I just can't recommend them for kits. They are higher than most other reputable vendors....and they know it cause I told them

I've always had great service from them, and have done the combo builder a few times. Just bought a 700n from the for a fraction of what it cost elsewhere and it was shipped within hours of ordering.

Here's the example I called them up on and their response to me was that this was the cheapest they could do it.

I wanted the latest 550 v2 kit with a DS650 Tail servo. Would have worked out perfectly for me because their Combo generator would allow me to do this. because the price was so grossly off, I was unable to get my kit from them and they were completely unwilling to work with me on it.

Build your own 550E FBL Combo
- Battery : Align 5200 40C +$50.00
- BEC : None
- Carrying Bag : None
- Cyclic Servos : 3 of DS610
- ESC : Align RCE-BL70G
- Flybarless Gyro : Align 3GX +$60.00
- Kit : 550E FBL (V2) Kit
- Main Blades : Align 520 CF
- Motor : Align 600MX +$50.00
- Receiver : None -$75.00
- Tail Servo : DS650
$1,284.00 $1,284.00

Exact same configuration with the exception of the tail server...kit comes with 620..at hobbyhut:

T-REX 550E 3GX FBL Kit Combo w/Elecs Free Battery
List Price: $1,019.99
Our Price: $859.99
You save $160.00! In Stock

I purchased mine at hobbyhut, bought the 650 separately and sold the 620 here in the forums and it cost me a $20 total difference plus my time to deal with it. Not a big deal...since I was also swapping out other items.

In this particular instance, it wasn't even close. I have found their combo builder prices don't match the prices of the kits when configured similar to the kits. The combo generator also has a nasty habit, as seen here, of charging extra for things that come in the kit. Very weird.

It's really weird and for that reason, I have stayed away from purchasing kits from them. I wish they would fix this because they are one of my favorite...and most frequented parts supplier. I spend more money with them on parts than any other vendor.

Grand RC
I think their parts are cheap enough and I have spent a bunch of money with them, but the last Heli I purchased Align 700SE they sent me a black muffler? after that every thing wen't down hill, bottom line I truely Hate Grand RC, they even shut my account down so I can not even order any thing. truly a bad company to do business with their is more but I will keep it to my self, good luck purchasing any thing from them.
