Warning - Do not do business with Sunny Hobbie - www.skshurchobbies as this is a scam website. At first glance this website offers discount pricing and cheap shipping and you might be tempted. Red flags - they don't take Paypal or credit cards only Western Union Money Transfers. They have a website trust ratio of 0% - very high risk. I tried them out on a small value purchase and never heard from them again and I don't expect to see anything delivered as a result. In hindsight if it seems too good to be true than it probably is.

Re: WARNING -SCAM Hobby Website - skshurchhobbies.com

This is an ongoing thing every few months a new company opens using the same MO.

This is the 4''th thread on this subject, which is good, since its always good to alert the members.

Bottom line, if any company asks for Western Union, FORGET IT!!!

Re: WARNING -SCAM Hobby Website - skshurchhobbies.com

What Max said. I've seen stuff on sites like that with stuff like a Futaba 18MZ for $1500. Not likely. You also have to watch what information you are giving them because they are data harvesting.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but two Wrights will make an airplane.

My Heli: Futaba 18MZ 2x(JR GSR260Z Sports FBL, Zenoah G26H, Futaba CGY750 Gyro, Futaba BLS-351 cyclic, BLS-251 tail, Futaba BLS-451 Throttle. Gryphon voltage regulator).
