Thread: Hobbico - files for Bankruptcy

Hobbico are finished, no chance. If carrillion fails, which it will by 5:00pm tomorrow, Hobbico has no chance, as Carrillion has large contracts and Hobbico has pracatically nothing.

As accurately predicted, Carillion fell into administration today, with its stocks suspended. Another company gone.

Won't be the last one to go, House of Fraser and Debanhams are starting to feel the pinch, with profit warnings and the like.

Ha! I live on my own, even the subwoofer is a 800w amp, a SVS PC12 plus. Although SVS make a more powerfull PC-13 ultra with a 1kw, 3 kw peak output amp.

Portsmouth is an odd track, a mixture of middle-age music and electronic. weird.

Regarding Hifi, I also use a reference system; Kef Reference one, Audiolab Amps, SVS Subwoofer and Sherborne AV processor/dac. And a Sonos streamer system.

Hobbico were supposed to expand into the UK market a while ago. They had a stand at Weston Park for a couple of years, but you could never get their products over here. Then they stopped doing the shows, and not heard of any products that they were bringing out at all

Only the Tactic sets made an impact, but that is more a drop, as they are not well know, although I have one and been quite happy with it, but quite cheaply built...

Almost finished the SBD Dauntless off. The speed brakes were a pain to set up, used quite a few channels, the flap and dive brakes are set in different modes: Flap only, flap and brakes, brakes only. plus retracts.

Thread: Scammer warning

My latest experience I've had is not classed a "scam", but some individual who doesn't understand, story is:


A chap was/is selling a Spektrum 9ch receiver on BMFA for £25, and I'd said I'll have it. So the seller had my address, and I paid him, He already sold it, but had no payment, or reply from the other buyer, so he said to I can have it instead.

I sent my Paypal payment,, and I sent a message to tell me when he sends it.

3 days later, the money in my Paypal account hasn't been accepted, and two emails I sent got no reply. Also, he re-listed the rx for £30 now.

So I reversed the payment, which it still hadn't been claimed. Why do people bother to waste their and my time. Maybe the reason why the first buyer didn't buy it probably he did but this seller doesn't know what he's doing...

Some guidelines when buying things in the Classifieds, both on Ebay and elsewhere;

Never pay as "Friends", you are not covered by Paypal, same, use the system to get protection, even if it means you paying a little more, if the seller won't accept it as that. Best having insurance, paying few more pounds than losing the lot.

If you can, try to collect, especially more expensive items. I bought a set of speakers of the HIFI forum, but went round to pickup, but listened to them before handing money over, even then paid by Paypal via android app.

Avoid using couriers, especially if the seller insists on it, it it has to be posted, make sure it is with a company with a good record

Use common sense, if you are suspicious - walk away.

Strange you mention it, Kaspersky has been axed by Barclays due to issues with Russian security issues.

JR Was one of the largest radio brands, and had loads in the past, JR Max 5's, JR APEX, X-347, PCM9,s 3810, etc. Not used JR for a while now, and when they said they were not making new sets anymore, think that was the beginning of the end.

R.I.P. JR.

You might get lucky and see one at a Swapmeet next year. I've seen one or two of them for sale. I've got one myself, when it came out.

Thread: Spektrum iX12
09/12/2017 18:44:17

I wont be buying more Spektrum radios. I have 2 Dx6s, a DX8, 9 and 18QQ and have enough model memories to keep me going, but after the HH debarcle, won't be buying another either.

It looks a nice set, although perfectly happy with my radios, just what happened has put me off.

Was about to get the DX20 when it came out, then got recalled, then the shoot in the foot approach to their marketing.

OS 120 FS -E. Bit on the low-power side, needs almost full throttle to fly, probably a 150 would be ideal.
