Sorry this is a bit late for your enquiry but I have just joined. The "Tamiya-shop.co.XX" seems like a scam because depending on your domain it gives a different web address (for me, it is tamiya-shop.com.au), all the same HK address, of course. Having said that, I ordered some Futaba 3050 (4) and 3010 (1) servos from them as well as a FASST 7 channel Rx (at a very good price). I was beginning to regret it since they were a bit slow to confirm my order having taken my money (Paypal), but after around two weeks the goods turned up, as advertised, and in perfect condition. If you google-around you will see that many people have the same experience - some a bit nervous since they take a little while to ship but ultimately happy with the service. Since, it's Paypal, there is some protection there so I will order from them again.

Hope that's helpful.

I got an OS engine from there at a good price. As previously noted, was a little nervous placing the order, but decided to give it a crack considering the saving. All worked out well. Engine turned up very quickly indeed and all good.
