    Guys Chinese New Year finished on the 5th Feb but most companies start really going after the 15th I needed a Tamiya Hi-Torque motor urgently for an R/C Truck and was prepared to pay for expedited shipping. The SA Post Office is treating parcels that come into SA and quarantine for a couple of days as this bloody virus only has a life of five days outside a person. If you have a tracking number use 17 track ( Internet) very good to see where your goods are! Another recommendation is to pay via PayPal you can lodge a dispute if the stuff doesn't pitchπŸ‘πŸ‘

    Hi Ed,

    I'm not really worried about the items I have on order, they are only to top up my stock, and I can buy them in UK at slightly higher prices. I'm worried about the situation in general and how it could possibly affect our hobby as a whole if stocks to the UK wholesalers are not being delivered.

    Re - On a very serious note

    Hi Nerys, there has been a big delay in stuff coming from China in the new year, as there have been new Chinese holiday acts put in place. Anything coming from a company has pretty much had a delay of 1 month before shipping, but private sellers seem to have no delays, I'm still waiting for some pumps and electronics to come from early Jan, and they have only been shipped in recent days. Have received orders from mid Feb from individual sellers already!

    Might be some effect from the virus but Chinese workers aren't going to tell the boss "I'm not coming in today" 😁

    It's only this last few days that we have been told about slow down in trade and associated difficulties, I'm thinking of what is happening at the moment and will happen into the future if the virus situation is ongoing. If nobody is at work, to me, that means nothing is being made or sent out. Hope I'm wrong.

    Hi Nerys,

    I've been ordering from China.
    With no problems what so ever!

    I too thought there might be a delay.
    But, There wasn't any at all!

    At least with my orders.
    I had no problems!

    Cheers, Ed

    On a very serious note, I hate to mention a subject like coronavirus on here but I do wonder if it will affect supplies of the multitude of electronic bits and pieces we need for our hobby that are made in China and are imported by the model wholesalers in bulk. On a smaller, more personal note, I have some receivers on order, anticipated delivery mid to end of March, will I get them when expected or will there be a long delay?

    Cheers, Nerys
