Default are you kidding?

so, I'm down to one 2200 3cell 25c cellsfor about 3 airplanes (5-6 if you count my dads), so I figure time for some more batteries. found a hobbyking 2200 25c for 8.99. not a bad deal, so I figure why not buy a couple, get ready.for next weekend. 3 day shipping brings the total to $89 for 6 batteries."international air mail" is $23.59, but has no estimated ship time. then there is a 2.39% thrown on for paying with a creditcard. how is a hobby king battery.cheaper?

I.can get 5 1800 30c 1800 3 cells from heads up for paying $81, I don't have to buy deans connectors, and I know ill get it, probably as early as Tuesday or Wednesday..considering I wanted 1800's anyways (for a slow stick) and couldn't find any in the hobby king us warehouse, I think I'm going to go this route.

so, why does it cost $49 to ship me a couple of batteries? (remember, us warehouse to us address. not like I'm in Alaska or anything...) I could almost drive to California on $50.

Hmm, I recently ordered 3ea. 450mAh 3S batts and shipping was under $7, and 4ea. 2200mAh 4s batts and shipping was $10.82. And now an airplane, and shipping is $13.11. Why was yours international shipping if it's from the US warehouse?

Sometimes HK is a good Bargin and Sometimes not,

As Red Skelton once said when he went to the Doctor, The Doctor asked Red What his Symptoms were, and Red Said : Well Doc, Sometimes I am Ok, and Sometimes I am Not. LOL

why was international shipping your option for the usa warehouse? I haven't had an issues with the us warehouse and shipping. It doesn't calculate the shipping until check out if you didn't go that far you might try it to see what the usps shipping price is. HURC is a great place to spend money too tho.

I just got 3 2200 4s nano techs shipped to my door for under $6 shipping. Granted I live 2.5 hours south of the us warehouse.

for fun i looked up what the usps 2-3 day shipping would be for 6 2200 nano techs to the florida keys which I would assume is the furthest distance from the warehouse and it was under $18 I couldn't find a 3s 2200 for 8.99 I did find one for 9.99 that was back ordered. so if you selected a backordered item maybe it was going to ship it from hongkong which would explain the international mail.

you guys were right, it was from the international warehouse, not the us one. I assume since they were out of stock it automatically changed the order to the international warehouse. I was searching under the us warehouse, and it.showed 6 in stock when I clicked add to cart. that's why I ordered 6. someone must have ordered some while I was checking out,, because they now show -7 in stock.
