  • the new year could be part of the problem but i ordered 2 more times from HK after it order was placed that i have not received and both of these orders have been filled and shipped but they cant get the one before out seems weird

    oh well i do want to order one of these new X8 wings however and i wont be doing it through HK i love the new pictures of it above i would rather it be in EPP foam though dose anyone know when it will be available in that or if it will?

  • part of the issues with getting things out of Asia stem from the fact that they're celebrating the Chinese new Year.  Everyone has gone home, so little if anything moves till they return.

  • hi hooks, where can i order one? (i ve added you as friend for pm)

     I Don't mean to pry, but what is up with Hobby king?

     I Am having a similar problem with them ordered some stuff 3 wks back and have been told Twice now that items are back ordered due To an" inventory error"I have had the items removed but they cant seem to get the rest out the door i have been told they would expedite but i don't think i am going to get my stuff

    i have ordered from them a lot and this is the worst service i have had ever. i'm worried they are going down hill fast

  • hi folks, are there any available for sale?

    what motor and prop would you recommand?

    best regards


  • No unfortunatley Hobby King is stealing my money it has been months and they keep making up excuses like there was an inventory error. I have contacted them several times and i ordered back in november. Over 300 $ gone. This is the problem with buying from different countries they can steal youre money and get away with it because our gov has no juristiction. Please someone help me i will not let that money go down the drain. What do I do? 

  • lots of comments.. how many have actually flown it?

    Mine should be here in three days. I will abuse it without expensive things in it.  then say something about it.

    Andrew yo said you were also trying to make one, any luck so far?
