With those prices, no. Generally, if it looks like it's too good to be true, chances are it is too good to be true. I wouldn't even think about buying something from them.

Sure seems like a lot of time to invest into a nefarious website if it is.

Just look at this page. The title of the page is already a bad sign: "How To Orders ?"...

Well it is a far-eastern shop. I haven't dealt with them myself but it looks fine to me. As for the English, you can tell it's just been translated via google (which always does a terrible job). All far eastern hobby shops have super low prices, but expect to have big charges for shipping and customs (If it is a large/heavy product). If I were gonna buy anything from the far-east, it would be from RCMart, I think they are recognized by RC-ers globally and have had great experience with them
