Default Best deal for RC in Hong Kong

Dear all,

i'm going for a trip to Hong Kong soon. I used to play 1/10th EP RC drift but had since quit due to some personal reason. I would like to pick up the hobby again and i understand that Hong Kong is 1 of the best place to get a good deal. I would need the whole set as i'm starting from scratch. i have some questions in mind and hope you guys can help me out.

1. is it true that if i ask the price the project and leave without buying i will get scolding from the shop owner/ keeper? if that's the case, how do i ensure i get the best deal since i can't compare prices?

2. where can i get the best price for the following items:
  • motor/ esc or brushless set
  • lipo charger and battery
  • servo
  • decent transmitter and reciever
  • accessories (190/200mm shells, rims, tyre, took kit)
  • 1/10th kit (prefer pro kit with carbon fibre chassis eg. TRF 417 & etc)

3. is it advisable to buy every item from the same shop?

Don't go to Hobby Hobby 鍵全模型!! Unless you money too much.
I think you should go "Man Lee"萬里模型 (Tel. 23880727 Mr. Kwok), Action Hobbies 極速模型, Racing Model Shop 車中樂, HEC 鴻聲模型.
