I have been flying Castle Creations ESCs for years now and they have served me well. I have also had a few issues with electrical components that have required servicing by various manufacters. Castle has impressed me again with there first rate service and I just wanted to recommend there products. My issue involved a 160HV ESC not governing correctly. I was able to get Clint on the phone and he spent nearly an hour working to try to resolve my issue before recommending that I send in the unit for review. I really appreciated someone with real knowledge of the product working with me. Thanks Clint. I then sent in the unit. The unit was replaced and back to me with in days. This is kind of service is not what I have received from other companies and is what will keep me as a customer.

I have a 3D heli, I don't understand why it doesn't do 3D

Castle Creations customer service is also #1 in my book !!! They have always stood behind their products 100% of the time for me. one Talon 90 issue and one talon 120 issue..both were replaced under warranty... They are great to work with too....

There has been a number of times they did NOT stand behind their products, a quick search will show it. Glad they did for you guys.
I still have one they never stood behind, and I know several guys who had their birds go up in flames and castle did not stand behind their product. Castle cremations!

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

I had a brand new one not work out of the package, it was over 6 months old, but still new in package, just defective. Personally never had the flame job, but a local buddy did, his burned up pretty bad and they did nothing for him.

Ever since that, I have kinda hated them. They are only 20 minutes from my house and I will never buy another product from them again.

If they took care of you that is wonderful, glad to hear it and I am happy for you, its just my personal experience wasn't as good.

I had a CC 160 go up in flames on a 700 align just spooling it up about 4 years ago. I think that was when they had a big problem.

I am sure if you sent it in Classic they would take care of you. I am partial to German engineering all sound but service on electronics takes a long time and always more expensive.
