"Hate to say told you so, but told you so. See my post sixth down on first page. Wonder how long it will be before people realise"

You on Hitecs payroll? Plenty folk use Spektrum with zero problems attributable to it.

Not on anyone's payroll used spekrum when we first got 2.4 with the original DX7 was faultless but built by JR using spectrum software, never missed a beat. When JR and spektrum split I bought a DX8, worst modelling purchase ever, went back 5 times in 3 months including 3 new ones always told nothing wrong but here's a new one anyway. Finally hit with a hammer and dropped in it the wheely bin.

Then bought a hitec never missed a beat and have both the 9 and the 9X, don't use either much now as I have another make as I needed more channels and am buying receivers for this system as I convert my fleet, my son currently uses the 9 and he has never experienced a problem.

I know of at least half a dozon spektrum users at our club all have had some kind of issue with them their are 5 hitec users and not one has had a problem neither, there are 25 members (caped) and I know every one and not one user of other systems others then spektrum has experienced a problem.

Have google about and its common knowledge that there are problems with spektrum but for some strange reason they are defended on this forum, about time people woke up and admitted they are poorly made cheap and nasty tat.

Why not just tig it? If your doing fabrication I don't know how you manage without one.

No doubt you will be on the receiving end of the anti Spektrum brigade posters wink


Makes me laugh, there's no anti Futaba Hitec Jr Jeti Frsky or any other anti brand brigade not obvious where the problem lies, I strongly believe one day people will work it out.

JR are still trading but MacGregor don't seem to be interested in stocking anything in the UK other than a few receivers.

Not sure where you got this from or when they started trading again, they went bust and passed all the IP to Jr America but as far as I am aware they have been unable to start trading again due to law suits. Please let's be knowing when they started again

DD, try Carbon copy. They usual have a good range and stock sizes.

Lol admirer your optimism. Make sure you pay with PayPal, at least you can get your money back.

Don't mess with all that, just put the broken bits roughly where they came from and secure with cable ties and gaffer tape, sorted.

Why pay with PayPal if your collecting? Paying on collection prevents this issue and helps focus the seller as he doesn't get his money till collect, also saves him a couple of quid.

Did use eBay a lot as seller and buyer but unfortunately to many people use it without thought for others either not paying for what they have bought or sellers changing there mind. By the way an auction is not legally binding on ether party which is why the big car auctions now insist on a deposit if you want to bid, obviously returned to you if you do not buy.

The only problem with BG as opposed to HK is that it's all in China and so delivery is relatively slow - around 3 weeks but it does eventually arrive.


They do have a EU site which is in the UK google banggood UK or go to the normal and click on wearhouse which gives option of USA or EU click EU and bingo your in, admitted not as much choice but usually with you in 2 to 3 days

but where are the fields?

Plenty of fields in Yorkshire, just need to get out there find what your looking for and approach the land owner/farmer in a professional manner and bingo you have a field.

We did a couple of years ago and now have what must be one best sites in the country, 150x50 metres drive in and pit from the boot, club house, heating, cooking facilities, and no restrictions. Full membership already and a waiting list.

Don't listen to all the gloom and doom merchants that say it's not possible it is you just need to put in the work.

You, indeed, have a point Andy, but when they supply a Contact email, I do expect an acknowledgement at the very least... Just old school, I guess.

The phones old school not email.

Stephen, you are missing the point, this thread is warning people off scammers, not recommending them. smiley

Warning them!!!! Just goes to show can't educate pork, you really don't get what I mean.

05/12/2018 22:45:53

Can't believe threads like this continually keep coming up, if your thick enough, naive enough or greedy enough to fall for any of these scams you deserve to loss your money, after all education is expensive. My suggestion for any one that thinks its genuine is stay off the internet.

Personal injury claim, where there's a blame there's a claim.
