Looks like at the moment it is the same as last year around this time.they ship there products out of Singapore for some reason
there shipping used to be second to none,but now there so popular it can take 2 weeks for them to actually post parts.not sure but i think it must take a week or 2 for them to get to Singapore before there then posted to the buyer

If it still matters I agree 100% with what everyone says about US warehouse only. Bought 3 LiPo batteries from US warehouse and got them in 3 business days Priority mail. Shipping prices suck though and I would go hobbypartz if possible. at hobbyking yesterday I priced some hard cas lipos that were not in the us warehouse and a few charging bags and shipping would have been nearly $40.... Was $30 for 3 batteries alone. screw that...

I can't do business with them since they won't ship to an FPO/AP address .

I'm military and even though I have a US zip code and the shipping is the same as anything else Stateside, they won't ship to me.

Funny how they can ship international, but not to a US zip code...My stuff from Tower gets here in 7 days...

shipping may take a while from the HK warehouse, but it still arrives. Ive been satisfied everytime that I ordered from them. Its alot better than spending 2-3x as much locally or at another shop for an inferior product.

I've had very good dealings with their HK location. I recently placed a very expensive order with the US warehouse. They waited TWO FLIPPIN WEEKS!!! before they let me know..." Oh we're sorry, one of the items you ordered is on B.O. I told em to drop that one item, refund me for that specific amount, but ship the rest. The "online chat" service rep simply stated..."OK, I will remove that item" then the 'tard closed the dialogue box. I have no refund as of yet, and worse, no info on wether or not the rest of the order has or even will ship.

Recently ordered from HK in china.I have ordered from there before and with the EMS shipping it took under a week from order till product was at the door..This time around, almost 2 weeks before we even got a tracking # for the order!! No lipos in the order just some parts..shiped EMS..They are getting too popular just like the Big online stores...Never again..I will wait till its in the US warehouse or just pass on the item..
