Default Motion RC

Since 2013, Motion RC quickly became my virtual LHS for planes and many accessories. I've bought 7 models from them plus lots of parts and accessories, even glue. They carry a very wide selection of high quality foam planes including Freewing, FMS, Dynam, Eflight, Great Planes, Flyzone, ParkZone, Roc Hobby, etc. They have free shipping on orders over $100 and they ship fast !

I've found their service to be second to none, including Horizon. They've raised the bar.

I recently had a mishap with my Roc Hobby(FMS) Voodoo Reno racer where the wing detached in-flight. After a few email exchanges, one of the owners called me to inform me they were replacing the entire plane. The "wow" factor.

They're a veteran owned shop with a group of guys who actually love flying RC.

Highly recommend them. http://www.motionrc.com/

I keep hearing great things about them but their shipping rates to Canada are astronomical.
Was going to get the dynam smart trainer.
$169 for the plane and $130 for shipping. And that's before exchanging U.S. To Canadian dollars.
Nitroplanes ships the same plane for $30.

I've been buying from MRC since last October, and have had nothing but good things to say. Every order I place is over $100, so no shipping fees!

I actually made a purchase from them today. Picked up the Freewing Stinger 64 and surprisingly the shipping was only $23.
Shipping for the dynam smart trainer still comes to $130. I figure if i stick with the smaller planes I'll buy more from them.

As a prior business owner, it was tough sending stuff up to Canada from the US. Most times it cost less to ship to Europe than Canada.

I have has the same problem, call them on the phone or e=mail them and they will get back to you. My problem was very high rates if I tried to order a plane AND another item. Called them and they checked with USPS and order was done over phone, for what ever reason it is taking them a while to fix their online S&H system.

I have the same issue in reverse when ordering from AMR or other Canadian companies... Seems that crossing the US/Canada border is the most expensive in the world.

I ordered a servo tester and battery box from these folks and I have nothing but praise for their service. I will now be a steady customer for just about everything I need.

Before retiring, I traveled to 29 foreign countries. By far, the most difficult country to enter into was Canada. If your visa's along with the required passport were not exactly correct, you went back home on the next airline flight back to where you came from.

A co-worker tried to visit the Canada side of Niagara Falls by driving over. Unfortunately he had a work type hard shell tool box in the back seat of the rented car. Nope, he never got to visit the Canada side, and got sent back where he came from.

MotionRC will be getting a lot of money from me in 2016. Between all the new planes coming out from Freewing, FMS and FN-RC, I'm going to go broke!

I don't go there often as the RCG forums are very active for all of the models.
