Getting annoyed with Hobbyking shipping again. My latest package that I ordered last month hasn't arrived yet and after some research I found out why:
- The tracking number ends with "FJ" which means Fiji
- Entering the tracking number into the Post Fiji website says that the "Letter" was last recoreded on the 10th in Nadi, with "Dispatches Created"
- The HK Forum suggests tracking on the http://www.logicons.com. That tells me that my package was last seen dispatched on the 9th on flight VA4152, which turns out to me a Virgin Australia flight from Denpasar to Melbourne
- The Australia Post website tracking knows it is an international package but doesn't know where it is yet.

Why did Hobbyking switch to using Fiji post rather then Hong Kong post? I didn't order any LiPo's, just carbon fibre and bearing blocks.

I just received a small shipment of connectors and electronics, which took about 10 days. I don't recall exactly which shipping option I picked, but it was the 2nd or 3rd cheapest.

After more reading it seems that not all orders are sent by Fiji. 7 of my last orders were sent with Hong Kong post and one with Singapore Post, which seems consitant with what I've read (Singapore Post had a bad record on the Hobbyking forum). I'm guessing that maybe Hobbyking has a limit on the amount they can post with Hong Kong post and the left overs go with other carriers. Singapore got a bad record so they switched to Fiji.

My package finally arrived 39 days after ordering. The postal guy did a dump and run, probably because it looks like someone tried to open my box. Not happy with HK's Fiji post.

Free shipping from HK for next 48Hrs.

Needed some programmer boxes for BotBitz so I tested this out with some massive Quad cases. 400 x 200 x 100 ish 1.6kg. $9 for the case postage would have been $100 but posted em for free. Smile

Min spend is $150USD to get it but I was already there anyway. But if you want anything BIG of HEAVY from HK do it now!

Hobbyking is now offering free shipping.

"So that nobody gets ripped off by HobbyKing's free shipping:
Today's HobbyKing prices are 1.32x HIGHER than yesterdays. (I looked through a number of items.)
So if you buy the minimum $150, it is costing you $36 more than it should, which is HIGHER than what the "free" economy shipping normally costs.
If you buy more than $150, you are wasting even more money. What a great scheme."

Has anyone ordered anything from the international warehouse in the last week or two? I just bought some motors and the shipping options were different and MUCH more expensive - up to $44 to ship two 550 sized in-runners. The cheapest option was DHL at $22. The good news is that shipping via DHL is super fast; ordered on Saturday and the motors arrived at 9:30 am today.
