Default rcblast.net legit?

Hello,

Just wondering if anyone here has dealt with this place ...

rcblast.net

They are based in Batam. Their prices seem really really cheap. Almost too good to be true.

Does anyone know if they are legitimate or not ?
I want to buy some stuff to be sent to Australia but I'm a bit skeptical...

Cheers
Leigh

I'm also interested in buying from RCBlast.net if they are legimite and reliable.

It seems strange, however, that they do not accept payment by credit card, PayPal or Visa.

Anyone who have bought R/C equipmet from them?

In my experience there is nothing legitimate about these guys. Sure their web site looks great and they will reassure you that they are legit but they are not!!! Take it from someone who has been there done that with them. Once the wire transfer made it to their account all communication from them stopped. Their website still says order pending 2 weeks later. These guys cost me 316.00 plus a $45 wire fee. So spread the word these guys will rip you off.
Below is the original reply I received from them.

Hi Rick,

Yes this model is available in our stock, shipping to Seattle, WA is $38,
we use Fedex International priority as carrier and will email you the
tracking number as soon as we already ship out your order, you'll be able
to check the shipment directly at fedex.com

We can understand about your concern about losing your money but we only
able to process Bank Transfer as the payment method for International
customers, we don't have any plan to run $300 and risk our business for
sure, we're sorry for this inconvenience.

Thanks and feels free to email us if you have any further questions.

Best Regards,

RcBlast Team.

I'm glad I looked here, I stumbled upon their site and the prices are so cheap I considered buying two (one to build one to sell). the communication seems very fast and reassuring but I was still leary.. Although I'm tempted to buy something cheap (under $50 U.S.) just to test the waters but idk if I want to even waste the time.

Great thread btw
