Have to give them a big thumbs up even though I haven't got the goods yet. Ordered and paid for about 6 items. Got an e-mail next day saying 1 item was out of stock and was expected in 4 days (a prop) gave me a $5 coupon for my trouble.Well the expected date was the 10th and it showed and they shipped. Their range is not as Big as HK but they have a much better idea of how to keeping customers happy and informed.

Just got my first order from R2 hobbies. Recieved in goot time. Packaging was a bit funny-its was wrapped in depron instead of cardboard :? but contents were fine.

They have some lost model alarms for $2.50, tested 2 of them and one was fairly quiet and the other was as loud as a GWS unit.Cheap as at that price.

Their carbon rods are very nicely priced also.

Definitely worth having a look at

I've also purchased one of those Eurgle radios (V3) and the are fantastic. I've modded the Antenna and moved the 2.4Ghz to where is should be. I also purchased 4 more 9Ch Receivers, plus 2 of the 3Ch Receivers which are fantastic, small and light. I've had no problems at all. Just got a Kinetics 800 from HK and the wings are warped like a propeller :lol: I'm trying to straighten them now :|
