I am rather new to the R/C world. I actually got started after reading a lot of material here and wanting to build my own drone. So while researching my first scratch built flying machine (a 450…Continue
"They're using something called Ning. I can't believe they're actually paying somewhere between $25-60 a month to use such an inferior product.
The website is passable, but the forum interface really sucks ass, and I certainly…"
"Just in case you need a reference for a GOOD supplier. Send your order to Dany at Canada Drones.
Very helpful and he does exactly what he tells you he is going to do. No B...S.... just good service. I wish all suppliers would take lessons from…"
"That is why I always place several orders every weeks to keep the 9X in stock here at Canada Drones...
Not easy to get them otherwise. I know I charge more but the units are tested.

"You can backorder the 9X from the US warehouse. You're never going to get one otherwise, they sell out within minutes every time they get any in.
Hobbyking already has an email notification feature, but a lot of stuff sells out so quick…"
I am rather new to the R/C world. I actually got started after reading a lot of material here and wanting to build my own drone. So while researching my first scratch built flying machine (a 450 Trex) I found Hobby King. Oh the cheapness... But the backorders are killer. Furthermore their customer support is not helpful at all with the backorders. So I built hobbyking-watch.com. Basically, I scrape the inventory data for all hobby…See More
Some time in the future I would like to do aerial photography. I currently fly helicopters. Need to work on keeping my bixler in the air for more than 1 min, followed by a less than catastrophic crash.
