Has anyone made a hobbyking order and got a Singapore Post tracking code for the items? I ordered another package with the same shipping an hour later, shipped same day and that ones has a HK tracking code.

The one shipped by HK Post did, . (both are very low priorities so I shipped them slow and ultra cheap. $2.99 for 100gram shipped). Just a couple of ESC in the Singapore post one

Yeh they sometimes use different carriers for lipos. And sometimes just cus the feel like it AFAIK. I wouldn't worry they both seem to take about the same time.

Has anyone bought anything recently from HobbyKing? As I order almost weekly now for BB I have noticed that the UPS 3 Day shipping has been removed. Is this just for me or is this everyone.

UPS 3 Day does seem gone indeed. Only EMS Express which is 3-7day remains.

I'm currently having issues with hobbyking. Last week I put in a small order for part. When I recieved the confirmation email I noticed that my address had the wrong suburb. In fact it had a suburb that I have never heard of before. I quickly emailed them asking to fix it. The next day I got a response that the order had already been printed and they can't change the address. They put the order on hold and are waiting for me to reply to them to cancel it. So I quickly sent them a reply to send it to the wrong address anyway because it'll probably still arrive since my street is the only street with that name in my postcode.
I just checked today and my order is still on hold and now it is too late to recieve it before the nationals. I'll have to reply that they can cancel the order and I won't be making a new one.

I was going to get 2 servos for kickapoo, but now I'll try and use some botbitz gear motors instead. It'll just look silly with little wheels

I've got some available servos if you change your mind. They aren't modified. (Just went through Toowoomba yesterday.)

To avoid hassles with hobbyking, do the following.

Setup/Use Paypal, this ensures your address is the same every time.
If you want to use a credit card, link that to your paypal account (it's an instant accepted payment then, no pending payment crap!).

I've never had any payment issues or delivery issues using this method with HobbyKing ever and this includes the thousands of dollars of stock that Steve and I have purchased for BotBitz.
