Default Hobby king strange item in my box

I ordered 2 lipos and a balancing port. I got the 3 items I ordered in great shape so not bashing hobbyking I only usually order batteries from them always been good. The weird thing is I had a Stethoscope in my box? Why a stethoscope does anyone use that in RC hobby? Don't get my wrong not complaining no big deal ok just got me thinking why does hobby king have stethoscope for? And is there any purpose for it hobby wise? Guess I can take it to the field and next time I almost crash I can check my heart beat lol. Any ideas or anyone got anything strange in your hobbyking packages?

Hi Poison ,

No sir , I can not think of one single hobby use for a stethoscope with regards to my model planes . What I DO own one for is locating the area in a car engine where a noise is attempting to be diagnosed . Some have good results using the ol stick of wood trick (like a broomstick) but I find the stethoscope to be far superior regarding noise location .

Tell me , in any of their listings , does HobbyKing sell stethoscopes ?

If no , it's highly likely your package was opened for inspection somewhere along the way , and someone's medical supply order ended up minus one stethoscope . If HK does sell them , and you like HK , send it back .

I have read several reports of unordered extra items showing up in H/K orders. Usually just a small part or item.

That is part of their home DIY MD kit, now with Graphene and Nano-Tube technology.

Who need doctor, pay high bill, you use our kit,wear stethoscope look professional, eat seaweed potion, make well. If you die we don't refund money, if you don't die you get bonus point.
