I like many of you have been purchasing from Hobby King for years. I purchase for many members of our club as well as my self. Thru march this year I have purchased just under $2000.00 US. But because of Hobby King problems I have purchased almost that amount from other suppliers as well. Last year HK purchases excceded $2500.00.. But now for reasons unknown HK is holding my orders, and money as well as other members money. When "chatting" a verity of excuses are presented. Best one was during a false spring with clear and warm days here in Oregon, the excuse given was that the snow and ice was so bad that employees could not make it into work to process the order. One member ordered foam from a company in the UK and the order has been lost for months. Only to find out the company is owned or run by HK, and he is still out his money.
So whats the deal is Hobby King going out of business or just holding money to cover their creditors?
If you plan an order from HK the best bet is to order just over $50.00 in the states to get the "free" shipping. But you mite do better in Vegas
So far I haven't run into any problems like that from HK.
