It's a 101, main chassis is different in the 102 (narrower under the servo). in the 103, the servo is vertical

For a 101 chassis, that's in pretty good shape...

Default R/C Mart

Anyone have experiences ordering from R/C Mart? Good, bad?

R/C mart has been excellent to me, I've ordered probably close to 10 times this year. If you can afford EMS shipping, they really do get it in your hands in 4-5 days. Otherwise airmail will take 10-15 days easy. I try to wait till I have a bunch of stuff I want to justify EMS.

Ya, that does suck on you items being out of stock. I've heard that many times reguarding ebay in general, I personally think shops put stuff on ebay hoping the item will become available, or they drop ship it from there distributors if its a US shop. I like to go straight to the store if possible R/C Mart, Stella Models all have actual web sights with stock status you can purchase from directly. Its still no guarantee, but if they have more than 1 for quantity in stock, your almost guaranteed to get your item.

RC mart is ok if they have everything in stock. It's the worst, if they dont. They will NOT give you a refund and will give you the run around for weeks. If youve ordered from ebay and they dont have what you ordered(why is it on ebay then?), they wont even answer your emails until your ebay protection expires, and after that you cant even put a claim to get your money back. Ive been thru this a few times and will not take my chance with them anymore.

I've never had a problem with them. The only time i ordered something that they listed, but didn't have in stock, they emailed me to inform me, and i just changed the item to a similar one - and they were great.

I've bought lots from them, and will continue to do so.

Well the place that posted the ZEN body was RC Market.

I have ordered from them.. nothing F103 specific yet... their selection is MUCH smaller than RC Mart for that at the moment.

BUT - The customer service and turnaround for RC Market was A+ - only thing I did not like was their specs on an item I bought was not correct, and they were not really concerned with the fact they were selling on false information.

I've had bad luck with RCMart, even though I dealt with them once. The experience was annoying enough for me to NEVER do business with them again.
