Well its all sorted out! Tank shipped off today finally. I recieved an email at 12:24pm "Your tank shipped out today" then another 1:32pm stating the tank marked shipped.

Now I want to give this guy the benifit of the doubt. I few people have said he's a good sellar, and he does have good reviews. Maybe just forgetfull? Oh well. Off to edit my former posts so as not to mis inform others searching his name in the future.

Xtreme just has this abundant wealth of knowledge  8O . Your wife should re-evaluate her view of this ability.


Glad your stuff has been resolved, like I said ebay has always been good to me.

This was last year but I figured I'd let it be know for others

YEI Racing AKA Yancy enterprise


Last year I had everything ordered through them to start building my FLM savage. I spent $160 thinking that everything was in stock (no where did it show anything backorder, not even during check out) I received my package and receive $30 worth of stuff. I went back and forth with Angie for a few weeks, kept telling me that they were waiting on their order. One day she said they received it and will be shipping my stuff out, but that was bs. I never received anything and when I got ahold of her again she could not provide me with a tracking #. After that no emails or calls were returned, heck even their voicemail was full, I guess from all of their unhappy customers :(


They only reason i went through them was because they were on FLM's vendor list and everything appeared to be In Stock. Yei is no longer on the vender list anymore though, FLM must have gotten some complaints.

On eBay I order 99% of my stuff from HopMeUp.  Usually cheaper then most places, ship the same day and I get the stuff within 2 days.

Beware of eBay seller:

RCSUPERSTORE

Ordered 6 rather expensive aluminum upgrades for my savvy,

3 of the 6 arrived. The other three were on back-order.

WHY DID THEY HAVE THEM LISTED ON EBAY IF THEY DID NOT ACTUALLY HAVE THEM IN STOCK????????????????????

They did not respond to my email but they did answer my call and promptly refunded my money for the parts i didnt receive so i cant complain there.

In general I would be cautious of:

ANY EBAY SELLER WITH 97.9% OR LESS FOR A FEEDBACK SCORE

I've had that happen before.  Some hobby shops put some of their inventory on ebay, then you buy on ebay and they realize they sold the stuff in the store.  Most of them are quick to apologize and refund, so that's a good thing.

+++ To this.  I would also like to add that unless they have 300 or so transactions and their recent transactions are all getting good reviews go ahead and buy.  I've never had any issues on ebay and been using it for years not just for RC.  I never sell anything though its a real PITA to sell lol!

I emailed the BPP guy (Troy) a bunch of times - often without reply at all - and when I get a reply it's sometimes 14 days or three weeks delayed.......
