Good question.
I’ve never heard of them. That in itself doesn’t mean much.

Just went thru their web site. If they are legit then they have one hell of a deal going on with the XLPower 520!!!

If in doubt, one could protect themselves with a credit card. Any issue you could then dispute it with the card.

Damn, that deal has me thinking,,,

Powerheli and/or inventory was sold to Gale. Gale started powerhelishop. Make of it what you will.

Don’t know who Gale is,,,

A couple years ago I bought an airplane from a similar site I questioned. Used my card just in case.
Said on the site it would take 3 weeks to ship and there was no customer service.

Went off like a charm and I was happy getting an exceptional deal.

But, my story is an exception.

Ok, that’s good to hear! Thanks.

Was worried it was more like an Avant thing. Never want to go there again.

I've been ordering many parts from them since they started Powerhelishop.
It's legit.

The XL520 price is right about the same price HD had it over the July 4th sale.
