Maybe not the place for it but same happened to me. Ordered something that showed in stock, waited a month and emailed them. They sent me a tracking # for something that was shipped to me 2 days before I even placed my order. Item showed nearly 2 months later and they wouldn't give me my money back either.

Service from HK... Order Monday, pick up from receiving on my way out from the office on Thursday.... Not much to complain about really.....

Have you purchased much out of HK, or are you simply stating things without any facts?
As a matter of fact, I do. I've purchased from them all.

RCMart
RC Mushroom
Precision Hobbies
RCModel.HK

They all take almost two weeks to get to me. On top of that, they send it Registered mail which is a bigger hassle for me to pick-up from my post office. Also, aside from the shipping and handling charges, they (RCMart) charge an additional "bank" fee. It is because of this, I no longer rely on them for my major purchases. Especially bodies; $25 for the body and almost another $20 to ship? Forget it.

Although, I still browse their shops for some unique items I can't find locally or domestically. However thats only if it is able to ship feasibly (minimal cost). Also, I don't rely on their shipment for items that I "must have" for my upcoming weekend event. Its just not a safe bet.

I had the same issue with rc mushroom , item showed parts was in stock , and when i paid i got store credit saying some parts are not in stock . 2 day later after paying for the item i added the same stuff to my cart and it still said in stock when they actually where out of stock . one email threading to take action against them with pay pal with there bad dealing i had my money refunded in 48 hours. under normal conditions store credit doesn't worry me but them telling me it my fault that i added stuff that was out off stock . i could nt go for that bullshit. Bottom Line Mostly they all ok to deal with if the online shops keep it real.

Default Xceed Audi A5 1/10 scale body

Just let you guys know we have just received the Audi A5 bodies.

Our inventory is 100% accurate we never over sell products. If you see an item in stock then you can be assured that item will ship to you usually the next business day.

If you see an item that is out of stock, we can process your order online but you will not be charged untill that item arrives in our warehouse and has been then shipped to you, the customer. Before we ship the product to you we will give you either a courtesy call to see if you would still like your product or we will email you.

you can find the bodies at google key word "tq hobbies"

Default Novarossi engines in UK?

Hi,

I have been looking for the Novarossi 353 and Plus 12 3SCT in the UK, but have not been able to find any shop that sells them.

Can anyone tell me where I can buy these engines in the UK?
