Are they safe to deal with . cheers Roger .. . .

Re: anyone purchase direct from rcjapan

I have purchased from rcjapan.net several times, always a good experience. Great prices for high end Futaba servos. Could be an issue with transmitters though if requiring service in North America. I know of one US IMAC flyer who had an 18MZ from rcjapan and Hobbico would not service it for him. Not sure if that is any different now that futabausa.com is the US distributor.

Re: anyone purchase direct from rcjapan

I've bought from them numerous times. Checkout process is a bit weird, but instead of going directly to your cart and checking out, it sends them an e-mail to calculate shipping, then send you an e-mail back with a link to check out. The lady that does it is pretty quick at it and usually replies on weekends even though their site says they don't. You pay through PayPal and they charge you the fee for it, but they're still cheaper in the long run. Subscribe to their e-mail and you get 2% off, so the PayPal fee isn't that bad then. They don't bombard you with a pile of e-mail. I'm in Saskatchewan and have received my stuff in as little as 3 business days, but never more than 5.

Re: anyone purchase direct from rcjapan

Three shipments in the past year - mainly high end Futaba servos, telemetry sensors etc. Dave described the process well.

Always received the packages in less than a week, faster than I could order anything from the US for sure. So far have never paid HST either although I am told that is a bit of a crap shoot.

Good prices compared with other sources. They are my go to store for Futaba products.
