Default Hobby-Lobby VS. banana hobby

I am wanting an F-4 Phantom 70MM Fan Jet. I have read so many bad comments on Banana Hobby that I am not sure if I should deal with them. It seems that everyone loves Hobby-Lobby. I really would like to purchase the Blue Angels F-4 from Banana Hobby instead of the off green-gray F-4 that Hobby Lobby sales, but I dont want to get a poor quality item and poor customer service. What do you think? Banana Hobby, or Hobby Looby? I have read a few comments that have been positive for Banana Hobby?

Thanks

Joe

I've had several dealings with Hobby Lobby. I bout my F-18 and my F-16 from them. Both suffered minor problem the F-18 came with a bad battery and the F-16 suffered from first run ESC/BEC problems. Too their credit both issues were handled quickly and resolved all my issues. Banana has had a lot of customer service issue and seem to have a lousy track record as far as handling them. I've steered clear of them for that reason alone. Check over at RC Groups under the EDF forum and Vendor forum for more info on Banana.

Bad news travels fast. Like I said I haven't had any dealing with them but I'm not planning on it now. Mike

Ok Guy's look at this web. www.Kampunghobby.com , They are selling the FA-18 for $399.90, F19 $299.00 and more. They are the same planes as BananaHobby.com. I sent them an email and she replys fast.

Hope this helps!!!!

I am not trying to hurt BH, just some other options for those who are scared.
