I have not dealt with them but I have dealt with a similar company overseas. I would suggest buy one in the u.s. as shipping costs will kill you fast. If possible see what your local hobbyshop will quote you. Ours sells them for about $270 and they will break them in for you for free if you buy the fuel.

If you want I can give you info on the shop I buy my stuff at. Generally they are almost always cheaper than amainhobbies and tower and places like that.

Ive done alot of research about these guys and they make there money on the shipping .Also there is only a 2-3% mark up on there goods as they make it up on the shipping costs to you.

They have also destroyed alot of reputable business's in the Hong kong area were hobby shops in Mongkok have gone from 40 shops to just 15 as over heads have killed them trying to compete with the low pricing of the online business's who work from Apartment blocks and bedrooms.How do i know this well i was there on an assignment for another r/c company about 2 months ago and interviewed a quite a few shops in mongkok and what they had to say was unbelievable

what i suggest is buy locally may it be the US or Europe this way your warranty issues are covered.

Support your local industry for your local industry to support you .keep the dollar in your own country.

I've placed several orders with them. Received my items within a reasonable time. Once, in less than a week. Usually a couple.

I use them as its very hard to find parts for my TRF501X.

I find their prices to be pretty decent as well.

Anything shipped EMS from HK will be here in about 5 working days. Also remember, they are ahead of us by one day roughly.

The catch is they are never in stock, i tried to get one from them for a long while but kept missing out. But out of the various chinese sellers most sell v specs for under $250.

If you shop around at most stores in Asia, they offer to ways to ship. Air Post or Air Mail and the other is EMS. EMS will come through customs in about a week. Air mail is about 7+ days to some times 2 weeks. Of course, EMS is more money.
