I am used to buy a substantial amount of items from RC Mushroom, and I have never had a bad experience with them.

Normally they ship very fast (same day or the next), with fair shipping costs, and they do have a great communication.

Indeed some items are out of stock for longer than we may expect, but I think it is not their fault (Sanwa receivers e.g.).

Here in Brazil we have very few local hobby shops, so buying RC stuff overseas is almost mandatory, mainly for those specialty items/tools/electronics.

I just have bought a Sanwa TLS-01 unit from them, it was shipped the very next day.

As for one, I do recommend their service.

I've had good luck buying overseas (rcmart, rc mushroom, etc.)

If a local hobby shop carries it (at less than 30% markup), I'll support them and buy it there.

I rarely buy from US online sites though, there's no point in that, not only do they charge too much (US Shipping), but taxes etc. are often too high.

I'm a regular online shopper with RC Mushroom. I have had 1 or 2 orders that I had to chase up due to items being out of stock however they have always been more than helpful. Excellent prices and as mentioned previously their shipping costs are very fair.

I have placed a few orders with Rc Mushroom over the last few years.

I have never had a problem with the goods that they send out.And the freight there is all ways a tracking number as i pay that little extra.
They have always kept me up to date one there web site on the status.
Once the package arrives at my front door it is all ways packed well and all the parts are there all the time.

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK Rc Mushroom........

RC Mushroom are quite good. I've never had an order go wrong with them. I've used many of the bigger US stores too and a few European ones. Mostly positive experiences.

I have noticed recently though that alot of the Hong Kong online store prices have begun to creep up. The gap isn't as great as it use to be between them and the US stores.

I buy tons of stuff from mushroom. More economic than Amain for me with lower shipping and also no customs. Never had an issue.

I just had an order come in from them about 2 weeks ago, and the service was excellent. Are any of the items on Back order? Thats normally where the problems are, they often hold a shipment until everything is there. It is weird though, I normally get an email explaining that the item is not in stock, and they gave me the option of shipping now, or waiting for the item. Always have them ship it right away, as some items take a long time to come in.

All of a sudden and after I posted here I have got a response from them hurrah ! and the order has now been dispatched. No reason given for the delay though, so perhaps they have just been very busy ?

rcmushroom achieve the 'hat trick'.

Three out of three of my last orders that were listed as 'IN STOCK' were not in stock after I ordered and paid for them.

One item over $150 is still not in stock (and has not shipped) after several weeks.
I assume it will turn up eventually (they have not taken the item off their website yet).

Are they waiting until you order the expensive items before they order it from the manufacturer.

It wouldn't be a problem if they offered a full refund on all out of stock items, but they don't. You either swap it for something else or remove the item and get store credit.
Once they've got your money, they wont give it back LOL.

I would prefer they offered a full refund so you could order from someone who Does actually have the item in stock.

Bad business ethic IMHO.

I had first purchase from rc mushroom and really bad experience. In fact bought from ebay and paid via paypal. Item was posted via courier. Didnt received item, however parcel had tracking number. I was waiting for parcel 6weeks. Last messages on tracking system says: "Forwarded for processing" and "Returned to sender - not collected by addressee".
I opened case on ebay. Few days later ebay decide close the case and this case has been decided in the seller's favour. and didnt refunded my money. Parcel contents is expensive radio for $420. Thats completely ridiculous. Worst experience with mushroom and ebay with such ridiculous decisions also. No parcel no monies. I think i will put ebay to court for that.
My advise DONT BUY anything from rc mushroom.

It's a shame you had a bad experience. I've personally ordered thousands of dollars of stuff from them over many orders and never had an issue. You don't say what country you are in and you also didn't say if you have actually contacted them directly to discuss the issue. You need to do more here to resolve the issue. Goto their website and send them a message with all the details and to from there.

Remember that it isn't eBay, paypal or RCM's direct fault here as it seems to be an issue of the courier although perhaps they were waiting for you to collect it? Did you try contacting the courier and asking? I know I would if it's been waiting that long.

Before filling claims you need to get all your facts straight. No wander eBay and paypal ruled in favour of the seller!!
