There is now Hirobo nitro sale. For instance D3 for less than 500euros.
If you look for a Hirobo kit check the link out:

Good to see that Japan's fiscal policy is having a positive affect

I do wonder why they are being sold off so cheaply though.

Well in that case, I've just demanded two kits, so we'll have to see about the supply

The new version comes out and so the old one has to go.

In Denmark nitro is dissapearing quite rapidly, so I believe this sale is mainly just to make room on the shelves for other products.

Fortunately all Hirobo parts will remain on stock :-)

Bad news. According to a reliable source Hirobo is experiencing some business challenges.

So is it becoming a Trex world?

How so? All Japanese companies face the devaluation of the dollar versus the yen.

where do you see that news?

I just notice that Heliproz has dropped the Hirobo line, no more kits but just spare parts.

You can still order an Embla from them and have it drop shipped from MRC.

Looks like RCJapan is becoming the place to go.

I have never seen such a case (Japanese store has doubled price for parts). What's the part number of the blade holder you are after? I can check price for you, I buy from a couple of different Japanese stores

Just placed an order with rcjapan, much less than any US price and shipping was extremely reasonable as well. And that is why I went to them. $29 versus $48 in the US...

I think I used a bad conversion chart??????? Not sure what happened. Has anyone in the U.S. ordered from there? How long does it take and what about the conversion? Can I pay in U.S. currency?

Hi there, I am from Australia, I can share my experiences here and I think USA will be a similar case.

Shipping from Japan to Australia normally takes one week, some times less, they use EMS which is an express shipping.

Shipping charge is reasonable, I have paid AU$35 (AUD:USD is 1:1 now) for a 'long item' parcel which includes 720mm Funtech blades and some other parts, weight about 800grams. I have also paid AU$20ish for a box of parts (70+ packs of different Hirobo/JR parts inside, so it's not a very small box).

I think the shipping is reasonable because I would pay same or even more shipping + almost same time waiting for the same size/weight if I buy from local Australia stores (Australian post is not cheap).

One big thing I want to mention is Japanese store has almost all the parts you want, they can order from factory very very quickly (2-5days) if in case (very unlikely) they don't have what you want, my experience with local store is the local store won't have all the parts you needed and they generally took 4 weeks to order parts in and the price is really not competitive.

The current exchange rate is very good and 1USD almost = 100 Japanese so you can roughly calculate.

You have to pay Japanese Yen instead of USD, but paypal will take care of the conversion and tell you how much USD before you commit to pay.

RCJapan charges 3.5% paypal fees but they give you 2% discount code so you only pay 1.5% fee nowadays.

I know we should support local hobby stores but nowadays with the convenient of the online shopping, global express shipping ,the parts availability and the big price difference, it's really hard to support them

I can't say how long the shipping takes to the US, but I have had a number of parcels delivered to the UK. It takes just over a week which is very good.

For my last order, they needed to request some of the parts directly from the factory. Amazingly, they shipped the in-stock items straight away, followed by the other parts later (at no additional cost to me)! The second parcel arrived just a few days later. These guys are very good!

how to buy from rcjapan

I buy from Rcjapan.net all the time. What you do is; select the items you want and hit checkout. It wont let you pay right away because they have to estimate a shipping charge. They usually have me an estimate by the next day. Then you can continue to the check out and pay just like you would from a us online store like readyheli or experience rc. Make sure to use ILUVRCJ2 promo code for additional 2% off the order. You then pay with paypal; no conversion necessary. If you want just use the google one it works fine https://www.google.com/search?q=yen...lient=firefox-a

If u have any question or issues Wendy who runs it is very helpful.

I'm on my 30th something order from them and not one problem. Shipping takes about a week to two weeks depends on what it is. the hirobo stuff ships out pretty quick in my opinion.
Oh yeah, the shipping estimate always includes insurance and tracking.
hope this helps
