This is a niche RC hobby shop. Their specialty is that they offer logically grouped parts as kitted products. They claim to sell their products at up to 95% off the retail price. So naturally, you would expect that these are not brand new products. The answer is yes and no.
Kitted products are new and from a new, unused, disassembled product. Kitted products are in OEM DH packaging and do not come in manufacturer’s packaging. So basically, you will receive brand new products, but they will not come in the original manufacturer’s packaging. So if you are looking for a complete kit, and don’t care about packaging, these kits are logically a good deal. Especially at a large discount.
As they sell OEM products, make sure to read the descriptions carefully. A lot of these kinds of products are sold as-is, with no manufacturer’s warranty. Dollar Hobbyz does offer their own return policy however.
What I like or don’t like
Their storefront is very well organized, and professional looking. You have a graphic store menu where you can shop by brand, and special categories using a top navigation bar menu. Each category also has a drop down sub category menu as well. You also get a left side text menu with the same categories. So it is very easy to navigate, and find what you are looking for. Each listing also carries over the left side menu as well.
I do appreciate their attention to detail in their listings though. Each listing has clear and large pictures, so you really get to see in detail what you are buying. Their product descriptions describe the product in details, and provide all of the necessary information, like color, model, package content, etc.
Their excellent feedback really makes you feel secure in shopping from this eBay store. As does their 14-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back. And having two weeks to do so is quite convenient.
