I hate waiting for stuff to arrive... Out of necessity I shop online for RC stuff, partly because that's what I can afford, but also because I can't resist a bargain!

I'm currently waiting for a new 50mm EDF unit to arrive for my A-6. It was posted on 18 Feb (from HK), so I had some hope it'd arrive before the weekend, but it was a slim one. I'm also waiting for a couple of UBECs, one of which will complete my Mig-15 which I got for Christmas and haven't flown yet. These were posted from China (Ebay purchase) on 16 Feb... No joy :(

I agree, I'm getting used to it. I always have to wait for few weeks untill my stuff arrives :/
It is necessary fo me to buy my things online because we only have one hobbystore here in Iceland that sells RC ariplanes (few more (2 or 3) which sell cars) and there are like 5 types of planes there: trainer, lowing trainer, Cub, one indoor foamy and maybe one warbird. Everything GP (not the foamy) and overpriced. They only deal with two companies, Robbe and Ripmax from Germany.
So if you want something new or cool you have to buy it online and pay 35% tax :(

I was only saying to my missus today after I ordered a imax balancer/charger from hong kong.
That I am starting to enjoy the wait for the bits and pieces from overseas, it gives me a chance
to think on the best use of the gear coming and helps to stop me making those rookie mistakes.
I Have no choice about where I buy stuff from because its just pure economics, prices in the
UK are three times the price of the overseas stuff................so i put up with the wait

reasonable priced 5.8 GHz fpv rx with less than 26mW
reasonable priced diversity
FPV Fiberglass Pan-Tilt Camera Mount L-Size
Everything else should be orderable. Well there could be another source Fatshark Base too (Is on bk on most sites wich are reasonable for me).
