I had a good experience with leaderhobby.com. They've got a good range of LiPos. Items shipped the same day, by swiss post. I remember there was an option to quote lesser value on customs invoice.

I think giantshark.co.uk is another good store. (previously giantcod.co.uk)

yes leadershobby has good collection but there is one problem...

verify things after reading my statement

they often declare weight as more than actual weight thus increasing shipping price ...
say... 3S 2200mah 35C weighs 180 in actual and 200 with packing... they declare very high weight to main margins... often goes to 270 gms and above..

infact this is repeated for all units

My Recent Buy ThunderTiger 1/10 SSK V2 Nitro Truck



I have good experiance with Helipal and hobby-wing

Helipal.com - Send Spares again, because not received on first time, and by mistake they send spares through Non Tracking mail as I paid for tracking mail, price bit a high but have quality products

hobby-wing.com - Good shipping fast response, during business Hrs, Support is available on Skype and if you mail in non- business hr in next day u get ur reply even in same day I got 5 or 6 time my reply back of my different-2 query on same mail.
Price is low comparatively Helipal, Custome Shipping option is available like DHL

Hey, LHSs of our country too can give similar price like HK and without unnecessary custom hassle.

http://www.rcdhamaka.com/
http://www.thehobbyshop.in/
http://www.rcbharat.com/

Please note that Hobbyking replacement should be with low/moderate cost. That is why only common site names are given popular in our forum (or forumist Grin). However more site from India available in
http://www.rcindia.org/rc-outlets-and-resellers/mega-list-of-all-rc-outlets-in-india/

Hi Kalyan,

Yup, LHSs are doing a great job, specially RcBazaar with their range of hillers. The idea behind the list was to provide options when needed. I fly walkera and HK (or most LHSs) dont carry the spares, thought the list may be helpful to someone like me Smiley

I have bought some stuff from these companies and am quite happy with their products and services:

www.enjoyhobbies.biz
www.dealextreme.com

In more than one case, I have had an RTF Heli land up at my door without any hassles. Yes, RTF - with TX. Smiley

Both are based out of China.

As far as LHS are concerned, give www.rcbazaar.com some more time and they will prove to be more economical/pleasurable than buying from HK in all counts.

Yes, definitely VC sir, they are doing their best. And their price is the most compititive and their professional attitude too (Tax, Insurance etc.) which are two opposite thing and they are maintaining very well. And the sites listed above are too. Hats Off But they are not getting help from us (users) to increase their sales volume so that they can bear some more employee.

We can help them by two way.

1. Purchasing from them avoiding customs hastle and delay, benificial to us , simultaniously, and
2. Advance informing them about our (Not my) requirement so that their capital rolls and we get spairs in time.

Thanks

+1 for dealextreme. I've been buying from them for over 3 years now. Almost every parcel has rung my doorbell. Out of my over 50 orders with them till date, 3 havent come in but anyways, they have awesome stuff (not just rc parts). Their service seems to have slowed down lately, esp after the new ordering system, but the good news is it still works.

Hello everyone,
 I found this site http://www.hobbytron.com

It sells RC vehicles as well as airsoft rifles. Is it reliable? Has anyone else ordered from this site? I am looking forward to buy a vehicle from this compay as it's cheap  Indian Rupees and most probable customs won't stop it.

I think it's up to the individual to select which Hobby supplier they prefer. This type of attempt at trying to coax the way from the favourite supplier can alienate them from the knockers who HK is hurting. A newcomer should be told whoever is making a negative post about HK, if they own a hobby supply business. Obviously a LHS owner would be rather biased in his posts on this type of thread.

If I owned a hobby shop I'd be trying to give a hobbyist something which HK doesn't supply or if they do supply it then try to be better than HK. A tall order? no doubt about it.

I checked a few of the alternatives listed in this thread, one stocked nothing except a paper bag with a candle holder under it. An item HK doesn't sell and doubt they ever will. But hardly equipped to be called a "Hobby Shop"

The other alternative did stock RC equipment but the prices were far in excess of HK's. Yes there are businesses who sell some items cheaper, but not by much. In my opinion HK is the only place where I can find exactly what I want and all in the same place. Prior to finding HK I was forced to buy motors and ESCs from one outlet, small parts such as hinges, horns and pushrods etc from another batteries from another and so it went on. I was forced to keep a book of what was on order and from whom I purchased it. Now almost everything I buy is from HK because I prefer to make one order and know everything I wanted will come in one box.

Yes there are problems with service at times and yes it seems a lot of items are on backorder, but when you understand the way Chinese factories work you will get a good idea of the somewhat lengthy delays in getting new stock. Quite often when I desperately need a certain item I can often find a substitute for it among the thousands of parts they stock.

Remember that this is just a hobby to more than 99% of us and as such a matter of waiting for that part to restock is a good opportunity to finish a few projects pushed to one side.

I have problems with HK at the moment as they have made a real mess of their freight system. Australian buyers can, according to HKs information purchase up to 7Kg of parts and it will cost $17.99 to deliver. However once you get to the last page you find you have no choice in delivery methods than pick the item up yourself or pay $33.00 on one day and $36.00 the next followed by $33.00 the next. In other words there is a big bug in their system or they have changed their system with out giving customers any warning. Not exactly good for business. I also have problems with their customer service section. They will insist on sending out generic emails which have nothing or very little to do with your original purpose of contacting them.

I sent them an email last year congratulating them on a good freight service. For two weeks I received 4 emails asking me to elaborate on my complaint. Obviously a language hiccup.

If I put my problems with HK alongside the satisfaction I get from shopping with them, my overall level of satisfaction far exceeds that of my complaints. I just wish there was more information given to their customers instead of sending a form email and immediately closing the matter and stamping it solved.

Hobbyists aren't stupid, you can bet they check prices and other matters prior to buying and if they choose HK they should be left to do so. Not being pushed in the direction of other sellers, especially by Hobby shop owners or their spokesman.

Just for your information my number of aircraft of which only 5 weren't from HK now numbers in excess of 40 along with 12 multicopters of which 11 are HKs and 35 boats of which there are three or four from HK.

Please don't brand me as a HobbyKing fanatic and other names I've seen used on this site. I have freedom of choice and a solid background of RCing. I just hate hearing uninformed biased claptrap regarding a very popular and important retailer. I don't have any affiliations with HK, I don't get commissions or discounts on stock. I'm classed as an Elite customer and regarded as an important member of their family. I will also speak out if there is a problem as I did yesterday in a text message to Anthony Hand, a nice guy with his head screwed on the right way. Happy RCing to all, regards  Stu
