How to add BACKORDER item to the shopping cart?

How to add BACKORDER item to the shopping cart?

Some items can not be placed in the shopping cart when out of stock.

If you don’t like to hear the expression: “Sorry No Rainchecks” these instructions will help you to use SALE price and place an order anyway.

In a sutuation like this you are more than welcome to:

  • Browse RCSearch.info catalogue
  • Find an item you would like to order
  • Open details of this item
  • Click on the shopping cart (may require repeting last two steps)


Now you can pay for your order and wait for the item from backorder to be delivered to your door.

Ordering more than 3 items using buddy code

There is a quantity limit of 3 when you order an item using buddy code. Also this buddy code won't work on your next purchase. If you would like to order the same item feel free to use another buddy code for your next order:

In the situation when merchandise has only one buddy code you can ask your relative to order it using their name.

Stock status is up to date now

It was a well known issue that we had a delay displaying HobbyKing stock status and backordered items.
Our programmers were able to fix this issue and now our numbers are updated every 24 hours automatically and every time the item is displayed on http://rcsearch.info/
We still can't guarantee 100% match but availability of each item is being check every time you open the page with the item. This will help you in making decision while shopping.

Sorting search results is available now

Our developers are working on improvement of the services and just added one nice option into the search engine.
So you can sort the advanced search results by multiple parameters, e.g. numer of cells, weight, size, etc.

By default search results are sorted by the stock status descending.

Search the product by web ID

Often looking for merchandise on the RcSearc you would have to copy name of the item from the HobbyKing or Product ID. Now Web ID can be used also. Just type in the search field symbol # following by the Web ID for the item you are looking for.


So for now our search engine can search by:
  • Web ID (using symbol #)
  • Product ID
  • Product name or it's partial input
  • Weight of the item (using letter g after the number) this request will return all items that do not exceed the weight you just entered. Very useful option when you need to fill up the weight of your parcel.
  • Advanced search gives you a variety of search options (size, voltage, amp's, etc.) Also you can use specific search for Batteries, Servos, Motors, Props.

If there is something you think could be used as a search option, please feel free to contact us and we will make sure you are satisfied.

Gee Bee R3 Gas

I am very excited to announce that some HobbyKing warehouses star selling Gee Bee R3 Gas model. This model looks fantastic to me.

Actually I was waiting for a long time to get a balsa version of this plane. HobbyKing has two sizes available 1850mm and 2060mm. Hopefully HobbyKing will make Gee Bee R3 model available at all warehouses. Also I would prefer to have an electric balsa version as I never had gas models before and not willing to start with this mess ;) you know what I mean.
