This company is great. They offer lots of parts for most rc models. There online site is easy to use and fast delivery. The shop in Cannock is also superb. Lots to see and parts in stock. And the staff are always very helpful in troubleshooting problems that anyone may have with there models.
I have now used Wheelspin for a few orders for my Heli's.
I also bought a Blade 130X from them recently.
The service is fantastic and dispatched straight away.
I ordered a flight sim last night just before 5pm and within minutes I received an email to say it was dispatched and with a tracking number.
These guys must be the fastest (and best) packers around.
Very very happy with the service as I live in the NE of Scotland and none of the nonsense of we can't deliver to that postcode etc.
What's great is that you know the postage costs (free or not) up front instead of going all the way through the ordering process to find out a lump slapped on for postage then VAT also added to that postage cost.
I now surf away from any website that don't show postage costs upfront.
Not a sales rep for Wheelspin - just a happy customer.
I have found Wheelspin Models give a very professional and efficient internet purchasing experience. Wheelspin's web site is easy to navigate, the prices are competitive, and the staff are available and friendly if you do find the need to speak to someone.
Top marks for service.
Have been using Wheelspin for a couple of years and I can honestly say I have had no problems with them at all. Delivery is fast, the range is good and the service online and over the phone has been perfect.
I will continue to buy stuff from them and recommend them to all.
I have recently bought my first RC heli (Blade mCX2) from this shop and would thoroughly recommend the company. Incredibly fast response to a price guarantee I requested (same day even though I sent it after they had closed) and same day dispatch, with the courier service texting me which day it would be delivered and then in which hour when the day came around. I then ordered a couple of upgrades for my heli, choosing royal mail delivery but they upgraded it to courier for no extra cost, a nice surprise when my package arrived nearly a week before I was expecting it!
Very pleasant and safe company to deal with, I'll be ordering all of my RC kit from here from now on.

I bought a Dx6i and a Blade 120SR but when they arrived they would Not bind. I was told by the shop to send them back at my own cost £17 postage. When they got them they said that there was nothing wrong and it was working so they sent them back to me.
After I got them guess what they would Not bind. I traveled to a model shop 20 miles away and when he tested them he told me that the Sr120 was faulty so I phoned Wheel Spin who told me to send them back again and they would have to send it away to be tested by Horizon Hobby! Remember £17 to post? NOT an offer to replace but that they would have to send it away to be tested !
The shop owner who tested them for me offered to take it of my hands and he would send it away to be replaced. Sorted by someone who I did not even buy it off !
I would NOT deal with this company !
Reply : The fact remains that the item was faulty when I sent it to you and remained faulty on its return to me. This was also confirmed by a local dealer. Why did you not refund me when I ask you to instead of returning the parts. I am out of pocket £17 on return postage charges as per YOUR Terms. People if you buy from them YOU must pay all postage charges even if it is faulty ! Be Warned
I put together a package of an RC car, Controller, batteries and charger.
I emailed to see when the items would be in stock, as christmas has just passed and the new year was coming.
I received a quick email back with recommendations to the list of items, suggesting what items would be better for around the same price.
They also informed me that the RC car would be hard to acquire at this time of year, but they would make inquiries.
They found a car and I received everything on the first working day after the new year.
NOW THATS SERVICE!!
Thanks very much. I cannot fault the help, advice, and service!
I ordered something for my RC car and wanted to confirm that I could get next day delivery so I called them up. Was told they were closing in 15 minutes and with 5 minutes to spare I completes my order. In another 20 minutes I recieved an organised and friendly email telling me my order had been dispatched! And the next day my order arrived in protected packaging! Really recommend this website and will definatly be using it again!
Bought a model following a recommend from friend that uses Wheelspin. Great bundle price and delivery in time for Xmas. Sadly one of the front shocks snapped following 1st use. Got in touch with Wheelspin and a replacement all sorted. Great comms and service would highly recommend.
I found the website very easy to use with easy payment methods,
Also a quick paypal checkout without creating a account or signing in very handy.
All items i looked at were reasonable prices, some with free postage.
DPD courier delivered my items within 24 hours even though its christmas month.
The big bonus for me is there 1st class customer after sales which is great for newbies and people who want advise on want suits them best.
I looked on your website afew weeks ago and decided i was going to order a sandmaster combo kit,i rung the shop to make sure i was getting everything i needed and was told yes everything,so when i was paid i placed the order,quick delivery but when opened i discovered that there was no steering servo,i rung the shop and the person i spoke to said no that combo does not come with the servo,it seams pretty silly to do everything but a steering serv,anyway i was not ofered any apolagy for the mix up and just told i would have to buy one,anyway i did but not from wheelspin,and wont use u again
I have now been using Wheel spin for all my vehicles replacement parts due to their competative prices, thier reliability to deliver along with thier returns proceedures.
I would recommend this conpany to club members and freinds.
Well Done. Wheel Spin
Since using Wheelspin Models I have always been happy with the service they provide. Whether using there online shop or ringing them for advice about a purchase it's always a pleasure buying their products.
Excellent range of products that are competitively priced and all R/C models have good money saving combo options which are especially good for first time buyers, easy to find what your looking for with all the spares and option parts you could want, items dispatched usually very quickly. For next day delivery they use DPD which I like because of the 1 hour delivery slot.
Have always been pleased with the overall service and since I found wheelspin models, I have stopped shopping around.
I originally ordered three APC 6.3 x 4 pitch propellers through Wheelspin. When they arrived I eagerly opened one of the Ripmax pre-packaged packets, and started to ready the prop for use, namely drilling out the centre hole to fit the engine, and smoothing off the sharp edges prior to balancing it on the SLEC prop balance when for some reason I had a closer look at the embossed numbers at the root of the prop showing diameter x pitch, and was shocked to see the pitch was 2" and NOT 4". Ripmax had got it way WRONG BIG TIME. So I emailed Wheelspin and returned two of the three, explaining in the letter I had keep the third as I had messed with it. They emailed me to inform me that the actual props were out of Stock, and would an Alternative do. To which I replied NO. There was then a three week wait, and another package from them arrived. The two props enclosed were NOT what I wanted, and they had tried to fob me off with a 6 x 4. So they got sent back and a refund request. I eventually got the Props elsewhere from some more reliable source.
I brought a blade nano and I am very impressed with it. I went into the store and got some great advice on what to buy . They were great in the store and the website was really easy to use an I will definatly will be buying from wheelspin models again
They won't price match and there no that good on prices either. I spend loads with these guys but never seem to get any discounts or offers. I have now started buying from a new place [Link] much better in prices and also get great service

I've bought loads of various bits and bobs from Wheelspin Models. They always deliver quickly without any hassles. Easy and nice, wish everyone else were the same. My only quam is I wish they stocked more of the products I need so I don't have to shop elsewhere but hey, you can't have everything can you! Highly recommended seller.
I needed some wheels and road tyres for my buggy and I haven't been disappointed, http://www.wheelspinmodels.co.uk/i/23529/ quick delivery and no hassles, I would highly recommend them, most excellent.
What an excellent service, very efficient website, great price, and great delivery service to France. very impressed.
