Default Problems buying rc parts from HKS Hobby

Beware of buying parts from HKS Hobby in San Gabriel, CA. I purchased product from their website on Oct. 7. I sent multiple emails asking if parts were in stock and I needed shipped in timely manner. I live over 4 hours away so I'm not a far distance away to ship to. I recieved no responce until Oct 14 stating we don't have the parts in stock. To this day I have still not recieved a refund through paypal on my account. Hopefully this will help others from making this mistake by dealing with this mail order hobbyshop.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I have never dealt with HBS Hobby but have ordered from rcmushroom.com in Hong Kong and never had a problem with shipping. If you go with the express shipping, you’ll get it within a week. Just think quick shipping and no taxes. Works for me.

Good luck

Yea, I feel the same way about HKS. They suck at getting things shipped and communication. Every time I called I got some dude I cant understand and no help trying to understand..

You guys and gals will love this a new level of incompetence. I was sent a email stating package was delievered on sept 27, problem is I didn't order and pay until Oct 7 How does that happen? This is just amazing to me how they are in business and I still have not recieved a refund.
