Completely agree but my last deal from them got removed.

Chris0609

Why should this be taken down: Hobbyking is a big company doing a lot of business in the UK.I have a few things I dont like about them but no company is perfect. This is a good deal to the extent I have bought one when I did not need another plane!!

LandOfConfusion

They haven't in the past and I hope they don't now as this is actually a really good deal. As for the ESC, there have been some reports of issues but that said, the 3rd party reviews look good and anyway, if you're going to overprop or run 4S when 3S is indicated then a better ESC is always a good idea.

john184

Yes, waste of time posting on HUKD. Unless they get paid with an affiliate link it will get taken down.

stuellis

I always dismissed this model, anyone tried it? My issue is the claimed 1900g thrust on a AUW model of 1500g is not going to give 3D performance. With no mention in the spec of 4S I had doubts the ESC would be up to it. FYI good luck with the mods here, last deal I posted from HobbyKing got taken down as they could not verify the seller.

Isn't the android build on these chinese?

DVS_Dee

If you run android on it you can power it by mini usb, for linux you need to use the barrel connector.

Christopher_Davies

That would explain it then and I meant psp in my previous post.

mahmouddiaa

I think these can only be powered via the barrel connector not usb

Christopher_Davies

Well I'll be if anyone has the same issue where the board is seemingly dead the thing can take a osp charge cable mine now works so the mini USB must be at fault I can live with that.

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 😔

Interested in how long this lasts. Last time I posted something from Hobbyking the mods removed it even though I showed them the UK warehouse/pickup point. Heat given.

Tamiya 1/10 Scale LaFerrari Kit (TT02 Chassis) @ Hobbyking - £69.88
Good price for a Tamiya kit, but you do need to buy the ESC separately as well as the radio kit.
WIGTYPE

£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 :-)

Pacman786

£61.25 at the moment. Good price.

jamesbeer752

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

foxyloxy

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

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

MrB123

It will only connect to a camera that has a transmitter or is connected to a transmitter.

Sambat

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

Good price considering most are a lot more

This is giving me neck strain just looking at it.

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

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...

mickrick

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.

leeparsons

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

AlfMac

I've been stung by Hobby King in the past: Spent hours selecting the full kit list (many out of stock, many only in CN warehouse), and eventually thought I'm ordering from the EU... yet after paying >£100 in shipping fees, I got notified that it was delivered in the EU and I had to pay another £100 for delivery in the UK. (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.

barrel24

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)

If starting off new to rc world I would recommend getting this as it cheap and reliable: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__8992__Turnigy_9X_9Ch_Transmitter_w_Module_8ch_Receiver_Mode_2_v2_Firmware_.html The one that markaustin313 mentioned is also good

dparr59

So what would be a good all round Remote controller that would not need to change or could be upgraded if the interest in R/C planes takes off

john184

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

Graham1979

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!

Super.Noob

For people starting out with rc plane. I suggest getting their Bixler as RobP mention earlier or better the AXN Floater Glider, this has lots of review. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EfomKG7w18
