Default heli world .com

Has anyone had any dealings with heli-world .com?
Are they a reputable company.Please give me the good bad and ugly.I have placed an order with them and cannot get them to answer my e-mails for a tracking number...
I hope that I haven't made a bad mistake.I hate it when companies take your money then disappear.
Thanks

Just keep in mind that they are an overseas operation... I've dealt with them in the past and even called them once. They were very helpful, but the items sometimes take too long to arrive due to the shipping overseas... Also keep in mind that your warantee might be affect by the fact that the purchase was made overseas... Many local distributors will not give warantee service for items not bough under their jurisdiction or via their distribution.

Henram

Are you saying that Heli-World is an overseas operation?

If so please check into it further, you will find they are located in San Jose California.Any goods that I have ever received from them (Futaba, OS, Century, Hirobo, MinAir) have all come from the N/A distributors.

P.S. Service was always very good...not as good as my favorite Rick's in TX, but still as good or better then aothers I have used over the years.

Rotordoc, I stand corrected... Heli-world is in the US, I was actually thinking of heli-kraft which is located in Singapore... Sorry for the confusion.... I have also had good dealings with Heli-World, in fact they donated some goods for our last heli fun fly...

They are also associated with Century Heli if I recall correctly. So if you feel comfortable dealing with Century Heli, you'll probably get the same service from Heli-World..
