Default Precision RC? Reputable?

im looking at spending quite a bit of money at Precision RC as
they tend to show stock of everything that i want!
Not to mention there website is state of the art, and looks
very professional.

are they good to deal with? anyone had major problems?


thanks guys

One of our top racers orders most of his stuff from them because our LHS stocks very little tamiya. He recommended the site to me but i'm yet to try it myself.

Some like them, some don't. Count me in with the latter.

Precision RC, RCmodel HK and RCMart are great sources for electric racers. They carry lots of stuff your LHS often not carry. Like every shop they occur sometimes with a smal stocks. Some people complain about that, but for most of us it is worth the waiting since like I said most LHS don't carry serious stuff. I live in the Netherlands and only one shop carries some good stuff but more expensive than Hongkong based shop. For me it worth to shop there, getting all the stuff I want and for a lower price

I've always had good business with them. If I ever had a concern or question, James at Precision has anyways answered my questions and taken care of it.

I have had good experience with them, if you are a little hestitant about stock levels, you can email them and ask a question if they have the product in or not

I've found they don't have as much stuff for my car as rcmart does, but I have ordered from them before and I didn't have any issues.

I ordered from Precision RC and it was better than rcmart. It took 5 days to arrive and I was happy. They had a good deal on tires and I went for it. I have ordered from hkmodel before and become very upset with the slow service and taking 3 weeks to get to me with EMS shipping. They have bad customer service.

Does anyone has recently ordered at precisionrc.com???
I've ordered parts one week ago and it is still written "processing" in the tracking order section.
I've send 4 e-mails but no answer...

Rule number one for all who does internet orders: have a international calling card at your side.

no matter where i order from.. there will always be some hickups, that goes for precisionrc too. they are good. just sometimes need to make changes to orders and chase up an order, emails doesnt work at all as they are very busy people. so call them up direct and dont bother about emailing as they never reply.
if they do, then you are lucky. one site that replies to ALL my emails promtly is superiorhobbies. and they are good to deal with as well.

anyway, to answer your question. yes, precisionrc is good and i order heaps from them.

i think that all the stores in hong kong are becoming slack as of recently ie rc mart took them three weeks to get my stuff were as it used to take 5 days.

The only way that i have found is to send them an email saying if you take to long i will NEVER order from you again and forward them a "your order has been shipped" thing from another web site ie amain. Belive me it works
