Lemon RX receivers

I have one that I use in my Strix Nano Goblin, and it has been absolutely rock solid - no problems whatsoever with range or cutting out. I spent a few $ extra for the diversity version, and am completely happy with it.

That said...

I tried to order a few more back at the end of March, direct from lemon-rx.com. $35 for 2 diversity receivers, and that price included shipping to me on the West Coast. They never got to me as of last week Friday, and I finally requested a cancellation. Now, I'm not upset with Lemon themselves; they were VERY honest and upfront about shipping delays due to COVID-19 on their webpage when I first ordered it. The big problem is that their shipping center is in China, and as you can imagine, pretty much everything is on severe lockdown for ANYTHING going out right now. When I inquired twice about it, both times I was told of shipping delays for getting anything out of the country and things were backed up. They did offer to refund my money back to me (and I took them up on it as of last week Fri, and saw it returned as of Wed.), so they have been on the up and up.

I bring all of this up because it means that if any company has them listed as on back order or on a "shipping delay", you're going to be waiting quite a bit longer to get them, because likely they're delayed by the shipping as well.

I plan to re-order the receivers at a later time, when all of the COVID craziness calms down and the shipping times go back to normal, but just be aware that their website lists shipping delays, right on the homepage, and it may be MONTHS before you get your parts. If you need something sooner, you may be better off buying a Spektrum receiver from your local hobby shop. I know that's not ideal in the way of cost, but sometimes you pay the price to get going.

I order mine from a UK seller on eBay and delivery has always been under a week. Generally, when I can, I'll buy from a UK or European reseller.
That's a problem for me in the US - nobody here Stateside seems to have them in stock, and i'm not willing to pay shipping and duty fees that are as much or more than what I'd pay for the receivers themselves. :( If the receiver, with shipping, is as much or more than the Spektrum branded one, I'll go to my LHS and buy the actual Spektrum version instead...

Looks like they got them back in stock! I had looked at them back in April when I was needing two for some new planes I'd built, but they were fresh out, so I didn't bother checking them again. That said, their cost is within a dollar of what I'd have paid for it direct from Lemon, so it looks like I'll be placing the order shortly. :) Thanks!
