Found 29th Sep 2016
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 including tracked delivery from a website called hobbyking.com. Despite poor reviews for the company I decided to order as it is sent from their Netherlands warehouse and I paid with PayPal for the protections provided. Ordered on 26th and arrived today (29th). As this is a family Xmas present I have not opened it but the packaging all looks authentic and I have six months PayPal protection so will wait (I hope).

Look forward to your views on the robot / company / PayPal protection.

Deal seems a little too good to be true compared to usual price on other sites but any reason not to trust other than that?
Hmm, not quite there yet to replace the Mrs.
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
Am tempted but the amount of negative reviews is concerning.
Zmas shopping already? You are organized.
This is a brilliant price. I have one and it is great fun.
