Hi Jean Pierre
I've always ordered from Hobby King but as you're saying the shipping cost and the delivery are becoming an issue. I'll have to follow Jason's tips, I ordered some CF from HK a couple weeks ago, it might take while. Sorry I can't help you.
Jason, thanks for the information.

Jason, thanks for the information.
Happy to help Gaston.

CST is one I've seen at Toledo the last couple years and have bought their carbon - which is top notch stuff in terms of consistency, etc.

Cheers,
J

Re: Blue Foamie

Ok thanks guys, its sad, Hking spoiled us with its low cost lipos, and now its ''pay if you want it'' they are still cheaper than here though. But its so complicated now. And they seem to have a size issue too, I tried to order carbon rods and its says that its oversize shipping and imposible to ship to my location. ??????
Any way I'll try elsewhere.
Thanks
JP

Re: Blue Foamie

If you order from HK and you want carbon rods you just cannot combine those with any batteries.

When you add batteries to the order (when shipping from outside of Canada in) HK automatically limits you to very specific shippers (eg. Fedex). Those shippers have size and weight limits especially with lipos.

I would suggest you try building a shopping cart with just your non-lipos and see how it goes when you 'pretend' to check out - ie. go to the point in check out where you actually can select a shipping method.

Then, once you get that sorted you can order a second round for just the lipos. When they box the lipos now they are almost exclusively lipos inside individual boxes which are inside other boxes, etc... hence they don't fit the longer boxes that have carbon in them.

Hope that helps.

Re: Blue Foamie

Did that and it worked at 24$ shipping with fedex. But here I pay 13$ per battery so its still a bit cheaper.
Cheers

Re: Blue Foamie

Yeah, it isn't as good as the old days before all the "can't ship lipos by air" business.

One last option if you do or you know anyone that lives near a border town with the US is to have them shipped to a border town drop box place like:

http://www.usparcelpickup.com/

Then do your own brokerage and such on the way back.

Cheers,
J
