RC DUDE. COM (great service..!)

New postby retiredVTT on Thu Jul 26, 2018 4:31 pm

The last China Hobby Lipo packs in the 4S and 6S size arrived with an XT90 connector that has a built in surge suppressor that eliminates the "snap" when you connect it to the ESC. It's a nice touch as over time this "snap" (which is caused by the sudden inrush of current into the zero resistance of the ESC capacitors) could result in damage to the ESC. However, obtaining the matching XT90 connector locally can be a problem.

Knowing that "Randy" at www.rcdude.com carries a nice supply of the many different connectors that are used in the rc hobby, and that his shipping policy is "if the order is in by noon, it WILL ship that day", I placed an order on the 20th of this month and it arrived today, the 26th..! The order shipped from Mesquite, NV, which I presume is Nevada, USA. I had emailed him sometime ago about his great service, to which he replied.."Hey, I know what it's like to wait for an order..!"

Of course, there is usually a negative side to every positive situation, so here is the downer to this one. While my little order amounted to $US13.85, the shipping cost was $US12.00. But I needed the product "now" in order to use the new lipo packs. And really, how much "extra" was the shipping cost....maybe $5.00

And finally, did you ever notice that you never see a Brink's vehicle following a Hearst ...that's because "you can't take it with you..."!

Received this reply from Randy at RC Dude today after copying the above post to him...

Bill,

Thank you so much for posting that for your other club members to see. Advertising like that is priceless. I wish we could have lower shipping cost to customers in Canada but unfortunately that’s the least expensive option we could find. At least we charge the actual cost of shipping based on your order weight instead of trying to gouge the customer with inflated shipping charges.

Thanks for your business. Let me know if you have questions or need anything in the future.
