    Aloft Hobbies

    I've got a Turnigy 9X with the FrSky module and have ordered a few times from Hobby King. I finally noticed Aloft Hobbies and figured I'd order from a US source to see how much more quickly I could get the order.

    Wow!

    I placed the order last Friday - a telemetry receiver and data display. The order was placed before I noticed I forgot the voltage sensor, so I called and talked to them in person (IN PERSON!) and was told to just order it right away and set it up as a pick-up order. They'd combine the two and ship it together.

    The order shipped out that day and arrived two days later (California to Wisconsin) for cheap USPS shipping. The voltage sensor wasn't there. Not a huge deal, I know they're busy getting their new radios and gear shipped so I called and explained the problem. Again I was able to talk to an actual human who speaks English as his first language! He apologized and said they'd ship it that day at no charge for shipping or if I was ordering more they'd just add it to the new order. I didn't need anything right away so I had them ship it. That piece arrived today, so the order is complete and received in less time than it'd take for Hobby King to ship the typical order.

    I'll be ordering everything I can from these guys now - the price is basically the same as ordering from China, but that kind of customer service needs to be rewarded with more business!

    I'm waiting for the Taranis, I've had plenty of orders with them before and they are my primary FrSky source.

    I'd like to add a plug for Aloft Hobbies. I ordered a FrSky D8R-XP receiver from them on Saturday, Sept 7th. It was waiting for me when I got home on Monday, Sept 9th. That was with $3.00 USPS shipping. I'm very happy with that!

    I'm still waiting for mine. Does anyone know how long the wait list is? I've been on it since the end of July or round abouts...
    Yes, I DO call that a landing! It's on the ground, isn't it?!

    It's pronounced "excuse me 720" or call me Gary, my mom always did.

    Eventually they'll be enough of them out there. Then we'll have to wait for the Horus.

    What am I saying. Already waiting on the Horus.

    If it's any consolation, I've been waiting on 9mm ammo about the same way since about this time last year. Can't feed my toys! Luckily it don't take much practice to hit a man size target at 21 feet but getting em all in the center ring at 15 yards is a bit harder without shooting weekly.

    Is there a 9mm shortage or is it a special round?

    I'm out in the country where 12ga rules!
