Fellow tankers, I see that Hobby Raw has the LAV unit in stock. What I ask is who has had experience ordering from them? Thanks in advance.

I had experiences with them but only that they took what i felt was too long for delivery. If i recall correctly it was almost two months, or between 6 weeks and two months. I remember being mad about it.
Even the Chinese on Ali Express can manage to do it in 3 weeks if you order from the right one (Mato Outlet)

I ordered 2 sets of tracks from them. It did take some time but I did get them.

And now we'll see how long it takes to get the LAV. I ordered one last night. If it turns out to be just another toy (which is what I think it will be) then it will make a great gift for my nephew.

I just ordered some Steel gears from them for my Aimex Taigen Tiger....It took about a month. I did not realize they were coming from China, but everything came correct!

It would be nice to hear from someone that had a problem, so they can tell me how these guys are about customer service. I did use paypal so I think I have some protection there if hobbyraw won't make it right. I emailed them, but since they're in china I expect I need to give at least 24 hours for a response.
