This is not a rip-off alert (yet) but it is FYI...
I bought a set of Futaba servos from rc711 last week. Everything was listed as "In Stock". I had not received a ship notice so I emailed yesterday. Got this response back last night;
Thank you very much for your email.
As your order #232415 & #232417 will restock on next week, we will send out your order once the stock arrival. The update order status will email you later.
Should you have further question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
They should have told me at the time I ordered that they were out of stock.
I also found out that there is NO factory warranty on Futaba servos ordered through them. They are grey market goods. I'm relying on the Futaba servos' reputation for being "bullet-proof" but if there is a problem, it's on me.
