I fly with a guy who works for RMRC and another who is a sponsored BuddyRC pilot. As such I’ve purchased from them and had great, super fast service. I’m in Pennsylvania, I think the both are in Ohio. RMRC has super quick dispatch.
Nothing wrong with banggood I’ve had about 240 orders with them in the last year. No issues. Buy commodities from BG. Buy only one item per order (quicker shipping, spreads shipping risk, free,) King Kong props, Racerstar stuff, I’ve had no complaints. But mostly I buy supplies. Stuff I will need but I’m not dying for. XT60 connectors. Wire. Resistor assortments. All sorts of cheap ass electrical supplies.
I’ve also had good service /good products from:
Spinntech Motors (also run by a super standup guy. Took care of a friends order issue in a way that gained a loyal customer)
I’ve had surprisingly good service from:
ReadyToFlyQuads. (RTFQ). The owner has a reputation for being difficult to deal with. Order fullfilment is reported to be hit ot miss. And Paypal disputes are to be expected. But again, I only order 1 thing at a time. I keep it simple, I have no problems.
Surprised to learn I never want to buy from them again:
Rotorgeeks: really poor service and blame the victim attitude towards a friend on an order they failed to even ship. The error wasn’t the sin, it was how the error was handled. I had been warned by another friend in the club to not use them. But I had good service and they often had interesting things. But they lost me after that incident.
