Default Hitec servos, Donald's Hobbies?

Hope it's okay to post this question. I've been told that Donald's Hobbies is a great place to get a deal on Hitec servos, but the website is all about zune, whatever that is? http://www.donalds-hobby.com

Anyone know where to go for a good deal on Hitec 5625s?

I think it is going to be tough to beat Troy Built.

Thanks for the quick response! Great deal since I need 4.

Crazy when just the servos cost more than the plane you put them in!!!

You click on my link and get a redirect?

Make sure that there's no www in front of donalds hobby!!! If there is, it will redirect you..

You can click this one also

http://donalds-hobby.com

If I use the other link, the www one, it redirects!!

*** added, They appear to have been hacked.. I can get the main home page, but when trying a link to the spektrum etc it goes to the zune...

No matter what you're buying from Donald, shoot him an e-mail from his Contact link describing what you want and ask for a price quote. Donald usually starts discounting depending on the amout/quantity of items you order. He usually gets back to you in a very short time with the pricing info. Tell him John Murdoch sent you.

Hmm....

Must have been a router glitch somewhere as I get to Donalds website using any of the links posted above.

For what it's worth, the e-mail confirmation I received for my 12X backorder shows a return address without the www but the link they provided to the webpage shows the www.

So who knows? Mysteries of the Internet I guess....

Oh, for the original poster; you need to click on the "add" button for an item to get the correct price, otherwise all you see is the MSRP.

You can get to the main page, but if you try and click on any of the links, electronics etc, it takes you to the zune site! I tried to send an email to them to let them know but it gives errors and wont send..

If someone has their # they need to give them a call and let them know..

Well I just checked it again and it's working for me.

If I click on the link without the www, it takes me to the home page and displays the address without the www's, but when I click on any link it goes to the www address, no Zune here.

Just got in touch with Donald. He said he was having some system problems this morning. If you need his direct phone number, e-mail me at JNMurdoch@aol.com
