Thread: What is a reasonable time to wait for contact after a purchase?

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.

Its not the cost but the % increase that's worrying, and please don't keep saying it's a bargain. What has changed so drastically from last year to force such a high % increase.

Yes Peter. The arrangement shown above is OK for electric models, but for ic you really need the fuselages to be nose-down.

Needs to be nose up or clunk pipe can turn and jam up plus fuel can run into exhaust if nose down

Have to agree with dave especially about the cliquiness its full of it, if your face doesn't fit your not welcome, and say something a mod disagrees with and your out of here.

To be honest a lot of the advice isn't always that good, that is unless you fly a 1950s design.

Well that's my piece said and I suppose I'll be banned again but there's millions of email addresses out there.

Hello ever thought of making your own mind up? If you say you are building a model requiring 8 functions (which I find highly unlikely) can’t you work this out all by your self ? Or like the rest of the sad so-called experts do you need some else to tell you what to do ?

Call me old fashioned for fifty,but personally i think the technology is going a bit OTT,i wanted a tx just for signal reliability,not for numerous programming,like ive mentioned before,i wont even use half of what it can do,but each to the own.happy landings chaps.

Unfortunately you have been steam rollered by the frsky mob, just look what I can do, full up elevator and it flashes the car head lights and full flap it starts the car and puts the heating on. Won't say what I use but have never have any programing problems including quite complex glider set ups and is the simplest thing ever to use, I did briefly own a taranis when they first came out but just sold it as it was just unnecessary to be so complicated.

Now I know I will come under attack telling me its a learning process and it can do more than my transmitter can but I do believe you should have waited for the jeti. Sorry but that's the truth.
