Scam would not send them a dime money transfers and western union only method of payment so if you have an isue no way to get money back at least with paypal and credit card you have some protection when you buy somthing he may be legit but just reading his shipping and returns letter sent up too many red flags for me good luxk if you bought anything

You can choose currencies. Top of the page.

No matter which you choose it calculates to $120,000 US dollars.

If I had that kind of money I would build an entire fleet of RC boats with twin Jet-Cat turbines since they start at $6,000 or $7,000 a piece if I am not mistaken. I might even add a turbine RC Heli and a scale A10 Warthog.

Read that and anyone using PP or a CC will know better. Note that they don't have anything in stock, they order it once they have your money so they say.

Right.
Sure hope they don't have jet hobby engines that cost that kind of dough. That would be insanity. Sure the price is not correct. As we know the RCMK K600 cost a lot more than listed that is for sure.

I feel dirty for having looked at that site - there are plenty of storefronts that try this. Ironically it is the ridiculously low price that gives them away.

Surprised they even charge for shipping - why not make it free - it is not like it is going to cost them anything to ship you NOTHING!!

Attention RC ADDICTS, Like My Self !!


I am sending out this message to you in order to WARN! you and everyone
about this company ( http://batongshwon.com ) from China who I have recently did business with. I placed an order for some motors in the amount of $803 dollars.
The order was placed on 05/31/2015 and I have yet to receive my merchandise and Ms. Emily Cheng owner of ( http://batongshwon.com ) has yet to respond to any of my multiple emails. I am now having to request that Western Union investigate this matter.
Once again, please BEWARE of doing business with this company.
My suggestion to you is DO NOT! deal with any company that does not accept credit cards or PayPal. This company http://batongshwon.com only accepts wire transfers. I would like to know if you or any of your costumers have done business with this company and have had any issues as I would like to make sure they are reported.!!


Thank you
Eddie Arana

The too good to be true prices ought to be raising a red flag as they are below wholesale. I'd send them a wire transfer from the person in Nigeria that is going to send me Millions.
Horizon Hobby and Tower/Great Planes /etc. have a policy on street prices in where their products can not be sold for less than their street price to keep the prices the same as what they sell for at a local hobby shop.
