Default HOBBY KING-SAVES ME MONEY AGAIN!!!!!

I just recieved my new catalog from HK and I have noticed there seems to be more products that I usually do not see unless I go to tower or horizon. JR Batteries, sullivan products and even a arf that looks like the sig senorita. Why can you buy these products cheaper than the main distributor here in the USA. I think HK is driving the prices down for everyone and I sure like the catalog and the web site. I have been buying 3cell lipo 2200 for less than 10.00 and they work well and I have seen lipo's of the same size for four times the price and I believe none of them are made here-maybe assembled in the USA but I think they are all from ASIA.

I really prefer Banana Hobbies. Thay have treated me like a king over the years. More products at better prices with unparalleled customer service. Nobody ever has a reason to complain about them.

Oh, no. All those complaints were made by negative people. They don't count. Bandana Hobbies is really good. Shipping is really fast and they are anxious to take of any customer complaints. Can't beat 'em.

I see more complaints against HK than BH. I have bought planes from both and had one bad experience with Hobby King and one with Banana Hobby. The difference is that Banana solved the problem in a couple of days, Hobby King never did and I got stuck with a messed up P-40 that wound up in the junk heap.
