Have you defraged your HD & registry lately? CC Cleaner and Smart Defrag are two good free programs. Use Mr Google. Don't let it clean your cookies though unless you want to have to login on your usual sites again.

I tried logging on too and have issues (Windows 7, IE 8). But they do also have an eBay store.

I bought my stuff from their ebay site much easier to use. Their other site loads bad hangs up it is not the computer it is their web page they really need to fix it.
Just a note don't buy the 9gr servo's you will be disappointed they don't want to return to center well kinda hang up and then slowly return. I bought a 6 pack special, and I got what I paid for.

I have a better deal on servos. I have the nice HXT900's like you get at Hobby King, for less than the price coming from the USA warehouse. These servos, although cheap, are much better quality.

www.nicohobbies.com

Although I'm quickly selling out of these and need to restock very soon!

With what appears to be a similar, but less-extensive product line to the HobbyCity/HobbyKing line.
Based (you guessed it!) in Shenzhen City, China, running since 2003, they carry motors, ESCs, servos and many small electronic parts. Didn't see any ARFs or aircraft parts, but some Heli parts.
Apparently (?) shipping is free, it specifies that "All prices include shipping fees". http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?app...site_news&id=7
A few random products and prices;
3.06 gram micro servo, .07 km/cm of torque (6.27 oz/in), $ 4.50 USD.
2826-8 brushless outrunner, 1400 Kv, up to 205 watts on 7" x 4" to 9" x 4.7" prop. 50 grams weight. $ 9.99.
11.1v 2200 mAH 20C LiPo. $ 29.99.
Programmable 30a ESC. $ 9.99.
And bulk Deans knock-offs, balancing chargers, props, etc.
Anybody tried them?
Ron
Website doesn't work!

Default Me, Too!

Hi Scalercflyer,
I've had the same problem lately, also. It worked fine last month but now won't load on my Windows XP.
So I used Pat's suggestion and tried e-Bay;
http://stores.ebay.com/RC-Timer
Loads fast, same stuff, same prices. Don't know if the shipping $$ is the same, but it's worth a try!

Their site has been sporadic here lately but loaded fine for me a few minutes ago. I've ordered several times from them and haven't had any problems with what I ordered or with waiting on shipping. They're lots faster than HK/C as far as I'm concerned. The last order I just got from HK/C took almost a full month whereas with RC Timer I have the order in 8~10 days. I really like their bulk buys of 5~10 items that are the cost of 1 or 2 of the same else where. I just wish they'd stock some bigger motors as well.

Standing By,
SJ

The only thing I didn't care for is that I had to install Mozilla Firefox because Windows Explorer won't work with their website. You can use Explorer to browse the site, but it will not let you go to the checkout to complete your sale. Other than that, my first order went flawlessly. I got my order in about 10 days which I thought was pretty good considering that it was right after the Chinese New Year.

Dear Voltron,

Sorry for any inconveneince.
We have update our webstore, please view again!

Hey, does anyone want to do those 9g servos for $2.70 each in a WBC deal?

http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...8&productname=

http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...wt&goodsid=448



We get a hundred and split the order up?

I'm in for 10 or so.

JRPlane,

I realize that you are trying like mad to up your post count for some reason or another, but do you mind going about it another way? Some of us take great pride in this forum and don't care for people who post absolute JUNK in their own interest.
