Never heard of them. Website/products look totally rubbish to my eyes. What do you want to buy Adrian?

They appear to be "box sellers". Mainly aimed at model cars.

Aeroplanes and associated items seem to be limited.

Not a "proper" model shop, but been trading for some time.

I personally would prefer to use someone more familiar with aeroplanes, particularly if I was buying something I hadn't seen "in the flesh".

You pays your money, - you takes your choice. As they say.

If I recall correctly, they have a very bad reputation for customer service. As Kevin says, basically box shifters. I would stay well away unless you can't get what you're after from any other outlet.

I bought a Nitrotek petrol car a few years ago. Know they are fairly local to me, think in Macclesfield where I got it from. A cheap product, had to upgrade the gears and servos, but for the price, ok, and still have it, and the model still runs well even over 10 years later.

Still I would prefer to buy from a model shop instead, Steve Webb Models and All Electric RC are near me, and go there.

Have had some dealings with them all positive, was lookig for some esky honeybee spares and bought quite a lot from them with no probs. The spares as far as i could tell were originals with the esky packageing , Mind you that was a couple of years ago now. Just had a quick look they still have spares will prob see what else i may need for the heli.

The address checks out and there are on google maps so that’s a positive. I’m sure I’ve had stuff off them in the past.

If they were liable for poor service, the news would get out pretty quick here. I’ve heard nothing bad.

Caveat emptor
