Ace-hobbies.com

Hey all,

Anybody ever order anything from ace-hobbies.com? How was the shipping and did the goods eventually arrive??

(and lets not start a whole thread on LHS support here... there are just some things our LHS never seem to carry so we resort to whatever means to get our jollies, right?)

Default tower vs ace...

Ian - woah... One month!? But i picked the 3rd Day UPS option... ouch..


Nipple - As for Tower, i've ordered before and it took nearly 8 weeks.. but that was with the slowest shipping possible. Anyway, i've already placed the order with Ace and there's nothing i want anymore.. it was something that our LHS didn't seem to want to carry ... thnks anyway..

ahh!!

This thread is interesting....next time someone wants to order stuff from overseas, should post here for piggy back orders. That way, we all can save some $$$ and get stuff that our LHS cannot provide.

Good good.

To know they ship out or not. why don't you ask the tracking from them.

Smile Chassis Protector

Nipple & Beng Hui: Can I join you guys in ordering the chassis protector from Tower Hobbies? The thickness of this sheet is about 0.5mm. And currently I've one and is very protective for my carbon graphite chassis.

Here's the product:

Thanks...

You want to bet... I order us so often..... You i do not know. Using ups is not use one... I explain... One day at shop, one day at the small little ups in the area, one day at the big ups near the airport, one day fly from one airport to internation airport, ond day from us to japan, one day from japan to singapore, one from airport to ups center and may be luck you may get it that day....


That all is when you are lucky...
