Last time I went to rcmodels store in KWS (about 6 weeks ago) they were selling bicycles as well as RC stuff. It seemed like there was a management change although I can't be sure.

They didn't have anywhere near as much stock as they used too.

RCmodel is not as good as it used to be. They always show items on their website, only that they dont actually have time in stock.

They 'carry' lots of different brands on their website, but in fact, they discontinued carry them a long time ago in their retail shop. (eg: Team Asso and x-factory)

RCMarket and RCMart are both very good.

RC Model isn't actually bad i've been to their store in Hong Kong and the guy who manages it is really nice. He actually gives you ideas of how everything works. However buying online does have risks. They probably have 2 stores one for shipping and instore one you never know. If you are buying electric equipment try http://www.rcstation.com they have really good customer service and a wide variety of goods for electric fans

I live near that RCmodel.com.hk shop. You very right. There customer service is very bad. Especially online. they never reply to any emails. I am completely new to all this and have just bought my first RC drift car and did not really know anything about it and wanted some help before purchasing. They were not interested. I ended up crossing the road and buy from a much nicer looking store. Slightly more expensive but the customer service was much better and they gave me all the help i needed. I second the motion on not purchasing from them.

RCModel are total crap no doubt. They never have stock and their communication is awful or non-existent. Last visit to Hong Kong I went to their shop and the service was not only rubbish it was downright rude. Not sure if he just doesn't like gwailos but the guy is a total prick.

Anyways, stick to RCMart and RCMushroom you won't go far wrong.
