So far not impressed with the service at RCsmartI sprung for the EMS shipping on wednesday, and checking the order status it hasnt even shipped yetHopefully its no biggie. I know when I order from hobby king the order will ship a couple days before it shows up on your account info, so i hope it's just a case of internal communication lag and my order isnt still sitting on their shipping dock.

Default prices are going up!!!

Wellquin.com had the FS GT3B for $42.91 and shipping was $16.00+- to Canada. Now it's gone up to $46.65 and $28.10 for shipping. Somehow overnight shipping rates almost doubled. I'm kicking myself for not getting it yesterday. I guess this is a case of you snooze you lose. I think I'll just get the FS GT2 from hobby king. I'm sooo cheap!!!

Well my account info still says the payment has been processed, but no shipping confirmation or tracking info.-Starting to get a little sketchy with these folks at RCSmart.

Default RCsmart aren't so smart

Forums seem to be the "in thing" these days so this doesn't bode well for them...

I would try to contact them and ask for the difference in shipping EMS.
I would also threaten to file a dispute with paypal

I'm kind of a hot head though

Yeah i am giving them the benefit of the doubt. I will give it till monday,That is a week and a half.Considering I get things from HobbyKing in 4-5days if it isnt here by then I will give them a BIG "F" for FAIL, and then move to getting the cost of the EMS shipping refunded.Last resort is paypal dispute

still nothing! Shipping status hasnt changed on my account info, and nothing in the mail.RCsmart gets the Big "F" in my opinion.This could be the best damned radio on the planet and I wouldnt know.I did send them an e-mail yesterday asking if my order had shipped.No response yet.

I think I'll avoid them. Sorry you're having so much trouble with them. You have way more patience than me.

I have been selling on e-bay for years, so I know how things can get when shipping overseas.1 Random customs inspection and things can get delayed for a week,but that's no excuse for not even posting up whether the order has shipped or not.This is my first time doing business with RC-not so-smart, and it will be the last time I do business with them.

Yes definitely avoid them like the plague!!!! I received an e-mail this morning replying to my e-mail wondering why My order status hadnt changed----THEY DONT EVEN HAVE THESE RADIOS IN STOCK!!!!and wont have them until the beginning of october!!!What the hell man??? Where in the world do these mentally impaired geniouses get off selling stuff they dont even have on hand and wont for another 4 weeks ?????

RCSmart is a gigantic JOKE!!!\

So now I get to wait for them to refund my money so I can purchase 1 through wellquin and wait another 1-2 weeks.
This has turned into a gigantic cluster$#ck!!

I was beginning to wonder if they even had them yet.

It's a new radio and Flysky just released the specifications and some pictures, probably just as it was going into production.

A lot of new RC stuff, cars, trucks etc, etc have "pre-order" options available from some companies.

Now rcsmart web site doesn't show it as being able to order, last time I looked.

Wondering, has anyone received a 3B ?
