    Default Banggood online store for RC Boats

    Can anybody tell me if Banggood is a reputable site to purchase from? I am trying to find the best place to purchase a Wltoy WL 915 rc boat. Your input would be greatly appreciated.

    I have purchased a couple of items off of Banggood. I received both shipments as ordered and in working order. HOWEVER, be prepare to wait. The order processing, handling, and shipping take FOREVER. I would also say there is ALWAYS an assumed risk when buying from these sites.

    Do have any recommendations for who to order from ? Would Amazon be more protected and reliable? I am sure there are rc hobby sites but I just don?t know who they are.
    Thanks

    I order most often from OSE. One stop shopping. I'm rarely buying ready to run stuff though.

    I also buy from my local hobby shop very often. Just not actual boat parts. Servos, radios stuff, wood I buy from the local hobby.

    I've bought quite a few things from Banggood, boats, batteries,motors, ESC's & various tools for work. Mostly free postage or very minimal postage
    All things were posted & arrived in a timely manner all the way to here in Australia. No complaints here.
    Once, I ordered a Pursuit boat for 300 odd bucks. They sent me a fully rigged twin drive carbon kevlar 41" Zonda worth nearly 1000 bucks.
    When I told them, they just said 'send another $50.00 and I could keep it'. Obviously cheaper for them. But a good bargain for me. I call that good customer service.

    But as Terry said, buy most hobby grade gear from Steve here on Offshore Electrics.

    Most parts places are closed for Chinese New year and Vietnamese new year until Feb. First so be prepared to wait for additional time once they resume business. Gonna be backed up for a few days, been Waiting on parts for my super Baja rey rc truck also.

    I've had good success ordering boats from Banggood and they even seem to stock a good amount of replacement parts for the items they sell. No complaints here.
