Just a reminder that it is now the Chinnesse New Year. If past experience is any thing the whole country seems to shut down for a month so be aware that your orders may take a few extra weeks to get here.
Green side is definitely not up

I got my LiPos from a place based in California because HK's shipping got a little crazy when you added LiPos to a HK order
I will not publicly name the site I got LiPos from to avoid the non sponsor issues
Anyone who wants to know where I did order from feel free to PM me

Re: My first Hobbyking experience

I haven't ordered from HK or anyplace overseas since 2010. I got tired of the dismal service, so-so quality, and shipping issues (Lipos). I doubt I will ever order from them again.

Instead, I tend to shop at LHS for any name brand stuff as it's reasonably priced. Then I have a few favourite vendors in both US and Canada that I get my Lipos, ESC's and motors from. Some of the prices are competitive with HK, but I also tend to very picky with my gear and will opt for quality over price.
