I wanted to share my experiences this past month dealing with some RC companies.

Hopmeup http://myworld.ebay.com/hopmeup/ This is a ebay seller I ordered some parts from on Friday afternoon. I received all of them in the mail Saturday morning! It would be nice if all companies would give great service and fast shipping like this company does.

Esprint Models http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp I ordered a transmitter tray and hand rest http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp...OD&ProdID=7192 from them on Thursday and received it on Saturday. Great company!

Electronic N More http://myworld.ebay.com/sales-at-electronicsnmore/ Another ebay seller, I bought a soldering station and other items from them and received them all in three days.

My Atomic http://myworld.ebay.com/my_atomic/ I won some items from this ebay seller and few of them where "back ordered". I get annoyed at people that auction off things they don’t have in hand. Lets say you need a part for your Saito 60. Every store list the part for $8.95 but all of them are back ordered for two months. You go to ebay and there is a auction for the part and you win it for $12.50 because you have to bid against other people and the part is hard to come by since it's back ordered for two months. So you pay a premium price then you get a email saying the part is back ordered and will be shipping just as soon as they get them in stock. In My Atomics defense they did have really good communication and offered to refund the money I paid. Since these where just spare parts for my RC helicopter I just kept them on back order. They are a good company but keep in mind that if you are looking for a back ordered part they probably are back ordered also.

Frankenmuth Hobby http://myworld.ebay.com/hobbycenter1usa/ This is a ebay seller to stay away from. There feedback rating looks good, 15,000 feedbacks with 98% positive. If you read through the feedback you will see that every 10 nth customer gets ripped off. I bought a set of grips from them. It took 7 days for them to ship it out. When I got them after 10 days of winning the auction they had mailed the wrong ones. My RC chopper has been sitting broken on a shelf for nearly two weeks waiting for this part.

LuvRV http://myworld.ebay.com/luvrc/ I got a tail boom from them. Fast shipping and good service.

Quick Tech Hobby http://www.quicktechhobby.com/ I was looking for the old Robart transmitter tray and found this company. From the first look at the web page this place looked shady. I did some research and found not to my surprise that this company is a scam. They just take your money and you never hear from them again. It would be nice if the government would shut this web site down since it's been up and scamming since 2005.

Exactly why it's ebay policy that you're not allowed to list something you do not have in stock??
If it's common knowledge that part X is out of stock everwhere,it should not be listed

Yeah I have quite a few sellers break this rule on me. I've also seen allot of ads with "I'm selling this item outside of ebay also".

Thanks for the link Scale4Me!

It could be by accident, but Why pay more than anywhere else when you still have to wait,, your LHS could get it just as fast if it's back ordered

good luck
