Default Where to buy?

All i see in here are "DONT BUY FROM HERE" but i need some info on where is a good place to buy from, as i live at pretty much the bottom of the world i need someone who will ship internationally, but has good service.

You can look a bit closer. There are lots of good threads about places that ship international, I can sympathize with you in NZ that is the 'bottom' of the planet, but a place I would love to visit.

Hello jagernz and welcome to Wattflyer.

It would be helpful to know where the bottom of the world is to be able to provide some help. If the nz stands for New Zealand, there is a forum for Australia and your area that might provide some help.

Horizon Hobby has a page on their shipping policies and a link to shops around the world that sell their products that might be helpful. Just scroll down to the International Orders section and click on the link provided.

Hope this helps.

Its just to expensive in NZ to buy gear & planes it cost in a shop here $550 for what i can get shipped from the states for $220

But also the problem again is people have all these bad reviews about stores which i want to buy from because they are the only ones that stock what i want. might be time to start importing myself.

That sounds like the ideal business opportunity.

Ah, New Zealand. Australia's Canada. Lubberly spot you guys have down there - I guess its all about supply and demand, and I don't guess there are a lot of folks demanding RC stuff, eh?

For gear - Hobby King / Hobby City is a good bet. Speedpost from Hong Kong can't be too terrible. As for your ARFs and such... I dunno, might be stuck there mate...

Had a look at hobbyking, would be happy to go through them if they had a better range, as thiers seems quite limited to some of the other sites i have looked at.

Really would like to get my hands on the HE162 foamie i have seen but the only site i have seen with it is toysonics, which seems to have a very poor rep.

Scroll down towards the bottom & there's a link to a RTF HE 162 Salamander.

I couldn't bring up it's page but it would add to the cart.
Good Luck, just be patient & take your time and you'll find what you want.

Standing By,

"....might be time to start importing myself. "

Jaegernz; Indeed! At those prices, not only yourself but the local hobby would better off if you did. Never say never, and the skies the limit!

There are alot of Chinese sources, along with the largest in the US- www.towerhobbies.com, but the others mentioned here are also my favorites. Nitro Blast, do we have a list of member posted favorites?

Wonderfuly beautifull country you have. Visit there? More like Retire there!
