looks good. Its actually refreshing to see someone start an online store that carries brand name products. I'll check up often as you progress, I'm in need of a new himax 2025-4200 w/ gb, but since you already carry the name, I'm sure you can get it.

good job-

Just a suggestion. Lots of folks won't order online without an address and phone number and a little info about the owners of the online store. Unless I missed it, there is not that info on your store available.

You don't have to have a toll free number. Several of the larger hobby shops online don't have toll free numbers, but it helps sometimes.

Ahem...

not to be the thread police, but this is the WATTflyer forum. So, unless those boogers have batteries in them, well, please stay on topic

You can see the details here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=697235

It looks like hew may have been a 15 year old kid and according to 3DHobbyShop, he was not authorized to sell their planes. He was in Florida, but items were supposed to ship from California. 3DHobbyShop also confirmed there are no drop shippers shipping their stuff from California, so I don't know if this was a scam or what. I had a pleasant PM conversation with him and he seemed legit to me, but I guess not.

Wow!.. that's a shame if it's true. Makes it hard for other new companies starting out to be trusted.

yeah, I didn't get that vibe from him, seemed like a real nice guy...

just a thought...I wonder if he was scheduled to fly the globetrotter?

Uh Oh!! I hope not. If you read the link that QuietRCFly posted, he was looking for "freebies" for himself or his dad
