I have a super nova bought it at the nats must have been late 90s sat in the loft till end of 2016 when I had pneumonia. Had nothing to do sat about for 8 weeks so built it.

Flies really nicely with a 2 stroke sc108 have taken it to a ukcaa meeting but never flew it at one, but even though no one knew the model they where happy to let me fly it if I wanted to.

Not flown it for about a year now, might get it out Saturday and give it a go.

mmm well,hows about seeing how many faulty txs Als hobbie receives a week.am i correct in saying they are the only repair centre for spectrum in the uk,or is it fake news im hearing again,in which the poor customer service provider spektrum is,and i will vouch for that,when my DX6 was sent to germany,then the US,because the germans could not repair it for some strange reason,then back to germany,then back to my local model shop in leeds,so what does that tell you gents,lol,rubbish customer service,and just remember,the customer is always right.have a nice day lol.

Sonny your wasting you time, this comes up time after time but still it doesn't sink in, maybe just maybe one day it will click in the mean time best I suppose we leave them to it and just have a little chuckle ever time it happens.

"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.

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

Paul.

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.

Thread: EBay Ads by Forum Members

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.
