Maybe this is not related to the topic but how many of you has bought things in Ebay that also comes from Hong Kong?

I order a laptop battery on ebay and the guys was in HK........ It took like 45 days to arrive

What I really dont understand is why it take a month or more to get a package from HK? Do they send it by a paddle boat?

Cheers

Isaac

I think they wait till they have a container full of orders - then send it by row boat.
If you're the first one on a new container...better sit tight!

I have about 50 orders with hobby king over the last 3 years and never have any delivery problem. I always buy the items on stock.
Their tracking number used to be either Hong Kong Post or Singaporean Post which is quite good. Recently, they change to other shipping company, the tracking number comes in late and you can't tracke it by internet. It's a bit worry.

When I have ordered from their HK location, I've watched the tracking info. More often than not, the stuff gets from HK to a Jamaica, NY, post office in about a day. They then sit in customs for two to three weeks. It's not HK that's the problem, more often than not it's customs. The same people who are now going to take care of all your health care, from cradle to grave.

When I've ordered from their US site, the stuff is usually here within a week.

I've had pretty good luck with them up until my most recent order. I ordered a quad rotor frame from the Hong Kong warehouse. That was 2 weeks ago and the tracking number still says it's processing at the origin office. I try to order everything from the USA warehouse if possible. The only stuff I usually order from the International warehouse is connectors and the turnigy wire, but now the USA warehouse is stocking more and more including wire and connectors. I get stuff from there in about a week.

The world is yours!

I also order also from the US warehouse. Someone mentioned that there is a star or something like that from where it comes from. How about someone elaborate a little farther on this, so we can get a heads up on this.

look for the American flag before you dump it in your cart.
I also think it's noted at checkout. I got burned on this a few times.
Just pay close attention and you'll be OK.
I got my last order in like 3-4 days. My jaw hit the floor.
The batch I ordered before I wasn't paying attention. I ordered those a month previous and they arrived a day before my US order.....

I just ordered four 5s Zippy batteries from the US warehouse and got them 10 days after placing the order. They emailed me a notification when they shipped them, but never did receive the tracking number.

OK went to the site and I see what you are saying about the American flag in the Price balloon. If it's from overseas you will see a globe instead of the flag.
