It seems like HK has turned into the Wal-Mart of RC'ing. It's unfortunate really as there are lots of great retailers out there.

Like with all purchases, do your research. I routinely cross shop HK with local and US based retailers. Some of my favorites: - Infinite BL Motors & ESC's - Wide selection, great service - US version of HK with similar product/prices - Good prices on Hyperion Lipos, they also have a wide selection

Canada: - Usually has great clearance deals - Best CDN pricing on Spektrum AR6110 RX's
GreatHobbies - Lots of brand name stuff.

Finally my LHS. They will order anything I want and I try to support them as much as I can. It's great to be able to pick up parts on a moments notice, view products first hand, etc. This is something online retailers will never be able to replace.

Re: LiPo batteries from Hobby King

the one main reason i got into electric, is because of the prices, if i have to pay the price of battery that is sold here, i will not be able to afford electric, i will have to re-think my electric conversion. I hope they can find a way to ship this battery safely and still stay relatively affordable.

Re: LiPo batteries from Hobby King

I think the ash cloud has something to do with all the delayed shipments from that side of the world. Is it better to travel half way around the world to save $40. HMMM.
It's okay Pluto, I'm not a Planet either.
