Today I ordered some lipos with XT60 plugs and adapters for XT60 to Deans plugs, on line. I got the usual email saying my order had been accepted. I then went down the garden to my workshop. Hadn't been there more than ten minutes and my wife came down to tell me the shop had phoned up with a query on the order. I called the shop and the query was that the adapters would not work with the batteries as the male/female bits were the wrong way round. This was OK as the adapters were not for these batteries.
Shows that some one in the shop knows what they are doing and doesn't just put what you order in a packet and send it.
Well done to Paul and Sussex Model Centre in Worthing.

Reminds me of the time I ordered some wheels from Puffin Models. John Emms was quickly on the phone to check that the order was right because I’d ordered one large wheel and two small ones. As it happens they were for a motor glider so all was well but like you, I appreciated his taking the trouble to check.

I have been using SMC since they were in Teville Gate Worthing before moving to their present shop so I know them well. Ali of Al's model also worked in the old shop. It is my "local" shop is just 18 miles down the A24 and I live just off the A24 so a simple journey each time.

It seems that the UK model shops that are left have really upped their game in the last few years. We should continue to support them

I've been a happy mail-order and then online customer of SMC for over 30 years and their level of service has always been excellent.

Late yesterday afternoon I ordered some servos from 4-Max. They arrived this morning in the post at 10:30.
I haven't seen service like that since I was a atudent. I could post a letter on Sunday to catch the last post in Edinburgh and my parents would have it the next morning in Woking in time for breakfast.
Well done 4-Max.

Ordered by email/paypal, received within a few days. I think Steve probably had to pull the canopy before posting it. Very nice canopy too.

Survival of the fittest I suppose. Those that remained stuck in the past with the attitude that they were doing you a favour by taking your business at their convenience are long gone. Agree, I receive excellent service from all those suppliers mentioned by others. A lot of very good Ebayers as well , those not up to scratch never last long.
