eBay Shopping for your Phantom


Long gone was the reputation of shady merchants roaming ebay for a quick buck. I’ve communicated with many that are honest business through purchases of many parts for the multicoptor. If you’re searching for stuffs for your phantom, you are bound to see these few merchants.

Here’s the run down:

Gadgetextreme – Bought 2 pieces of Tarot T2D. Noticed difference in the plates and was informed that it was V1 and V2. V2 is not carbon fiber any more and offered to refund. Kept both pieces and send a thank you note. Also gotten the 5.8Ghz receiver and Naza GPS/ Compass combo from them. Delivery smooth and reletively fast, about 10 working days.

Goodlucksell – Bought spare FC40 camera that never came. Refunded fully but offered to have tracking number to check with our dear friends at Singapore Post….anyway, refunded before they reply as of writing. Delivery smooth and reletively fast, about 10 working days.

Gadgetinfinite – Tried to buy 2 x ESC, one green and one red but decided to cancel. Hassle free and refunded promptly. As I decided to buy locally as I want to have it urgently. Price difference was neglectable..

Hobbyking69 – Bought all the EMAX 2212 motors from them. Cheap, smooth delivery.

Singapore Hobby – Having a shop front allows us to get what we want, when we want it but at times, cost is well, slightly higher but can’t beat the speed of getting it there and then. Chatting with them on experience is also a really good sell/ buy point with recommendations. They are not around just to make money, they will advice and always with a smile.

  1. Seriously, with all the unhappiness we’ve seen sometimes about Hobbyking, they still provides the most consistent service, delivery time and answers to questions poised.

    We recently tried out:

    myrcmart. With stock or without stock, they are always replying the same. Even when we ordered something that’s not a pre-order, they are checking and packing. We made 2 orders. Each order shipped out only after 1.5 weeks and took a further week to reach us. 1 order came via DHL that took 3 days.

    bestmallhobby. They have a no-nonsense free shipping and it DID NOT disappoint. Free shipping for a 250mm frame. Have since ordered some emax things from them too. It’s the usual, 2-3 days to ship out and 1.5 weeks to 2 weeks to have it in hand.

    goodluckbuy – one of the most frustrating. Email them, they reply in 3 days, ok got it will consolidate and do expedited shipping. 5 working days passed, email them again, 3 days to reply asking for ORDER NUMBER. We used the old email thread! Reply them order number and 3 days have yet passed….
