There mobile site is terrible. But I don't think any of these are rtr if you click on the car you want it tells you the "required" items at the bottom. The beetle is out of stock 😔

There's a Hilux Hi Lift for £188!

I wanted a Grasshopper so badly as a kid.

Any good tamiya rtr sets? Struggling with the mobile site
will have a look on a desktop pc later

Tamiya 1/10 Scale LaFerrari Kit (TT02 Chassis) @ Hobbyking - £69.88
183°Expired
Found 17th JulFound 17th Jul
Good price for a Tamiya kit, but you do need to buy the ESC separately as well as the radio kit.

Original Poster

£69.88 was the price I paid including 1 day shipping. Mine came today - it is the full boxed kit. It even included the ESC which the description said was not included. Bonus :-)

£61.25 at the moment. Good price.

If you read the description it says it is included, and if you look at the required items it's not mentioned, normally that's there because they use one set of photos for several different lots

One of the pictures on their website for this kit says "car chassis not included"

Can you connect to any camera drone or only a FPV one?


It will only connect to "drones" that have 5.8Ghz FPV transmitters on them. Most things nowadays use 5.8.

Odd one this. Was looking for a new robot for Xmas and came across this. Cheapest I could find in the UK was £339.99 from Costco. I then looked globally and found this for £157.81 … Read more

This is a brilliant price. I have one and it is great fun.

Zmas shopping already? You are organized.

Am tempted but the amount of negative reviews is concerning.

Been using Hobbyking for at least 10 years, never had a problem. However posted deals before and admin removed them. Hobbyking effectively they are both the importer and retailer and undercut normal retailers

Hmm, not quite there yet to replace the Mrs.

Scarab V3 550 FPV HexaCopter With Isolated Cam Mount And FR4 and CNC Alloy Construction (KIT) 76p was £60.64  @ Hobby King

Hobby king is doing 24hr promo a lot of stuff for 76p in the Multi-Roters Drones and Parts- Frame Kits section (5 pages). My partner was about to order when he noticed the price of… Read more

Agreed, I paid way to much.

The first "too much" was when I hit the "go to basket", and I had a choice: Abandon or cough up. I chose the latter.
The later stings came while I was over a barrel: pay (for further charges), pay to return (stuff still in transit) or abandon and lose the money already paid. Of course, if I at any point knew what was ahead, I would have abandoned the transaction and cut my losses... But I did not know what was lying ahead. That's what I'm warning against...

(The alternative was to pay £100 to return it to CN, or loose the order worth more than £100.) Then, after paying that, I received another £100+ import charge, so all in all I paid more than £300 more than expected when I first hit the "checkout" button.So - I might buy from them again, but not without spending a lot of effort reading all the fine print at the time of ordering, and being prepared to be stung again.Not voting either way, as the deals can be good, but just be aware.



You actually chose to pay two hundred quid for postage? And why were you charged another hundred for import duty? Electronic devices are duty free, you just pay vat on the purchase. So to pay vat of £100 at the standard 20% rate your total purchase would need to have been £500. If you only paid vat on the item and not on shipping charges, then the item would have to have cost £500, so you paid £800 in total. If you paid vat on the total purchase including delivery, this would've made the item £300. To have paid that amount of money you must've been getting a really good deal, like a phantom 4 comparable drone. Otherwise, as we say in God's country, your head's cut.

That sounds like a bit of cock up there. Also its not completely there fault. That's the uk customs for you. I heard royal mail charging you around £8 for deliveries, but never that much

Not bad. All the decent kits are on backorder but good to buy if anyone wants to build their first quad as cheaper to crash etc (buy a few frames)

Don't know how you got this posted. Every Hobbyking deal i've posted was removed almost instantly.

IMAGINE taking out all the drones with one of these bad boys. You will need a speaker with Battle of Britain or 633 Squadron theme (my favourite).

Oh yes this bad boy separates the men from the boys!
