Default Legit site?

I may be wrong in doing this but I am wanting to see if anyone has heard of this site or used it. If it is not legit i just don't want people to loose money. It is only reason I'm posting link. The prices are way too good to be true especially for.... well everything.

MODS if this is not acceptable please let me know.

Tons of scam/fake RC online store sites on the net and this is one of them.

The advertised prices are a dead giveaway

I never bother with any RC online store unless they have PayPal as a payment option (because of the ease/ability to lodge a claim and recourse if something goes wrong)

If they only accept credit cards or western union/electronic funds transfer, don't touch them with a 10ft pole

Maybe they work like most of the eBay sellers? $1.99 for the item and $47.99 for shipping!
