I dont have a lot of em to look at but all the one's my friends got had a great shine to em and no scratches....if your not happy send it back...tho never dull works well or a billet rim polish sourced at the auto parts store

edit.....just saw the pic man that thing looks as if it bench slid across heliproz floor...nope not normal and never dull wont get that out....I've gotten used pipes in better shape than that! they usually come wrapped in foam in the box also....

The crome is worn off in several places, polish won't fix it.

CY MPII's aren't chromed, they are polished aluminum. You can actually sand it down with some 1000 grit wet/dry sand paper. Make sure you use a 3M rubber sanding block. Then use some 00 grade steel wool. Then polish it with some Mothers metal polish. It will come out shinier then a mirror.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

I bought one from them a year ago and it had something on it .. . almost like it was pitted.

Heliproz tried to blow it off but I had them send me another one and that one went back.

Well, it should still work just the same, just won't look as nice with the scratches. Once you crash, it's gonna get scratched anyway, so if you don't wanna wait another week for a replacement, go ahead and fly with it.

You should still contact heliproz and see what they offer. They have really good customer service and will try to make it right however they can. If you don't wanna send the pipe back and wait another week for one the will work the same, you might ask them to compensate you in a different way, such as a set of TT carbon blades or something

That looks like the scratches you get when you lay your heli over on its side with the mp2 bolted up... I'd say it was mounted up to someones heli while it was being worked on.

SEND it Back if youre Are not Happy? (I did edit my post) you have every right to be unhappy. I just got mine, I put the steel wool on mine and some mothers buff and it is good or if not better. Me I tend to buff out my Muffler's every six months, do to small scratches and fuel stains. But by all means send you Muffler back and get a new one, YOU have every right.

Who cares?
I care. I bought something new and I expect it to look new. If Curtis can't handle his quality control on something as simple as preping a new muffler, I wonder, could something have possibly been skipped inside it? Is it refubished? I shouldn't have to "buff and sand", It is a new muffler, I paid full retail for it, sorry, but my opinion is that it should look new, not like it was dropped and then kicked accross the floor!
How do I know this isn't just an older version muffler that he refurbished? Sorry if you don't understand that I want the same qc out of anything I buy new, hey, that is what is expected out of my business from my customers. I like Curtis and I like heliproz, and I am sure they will replace it but it sucks that I don't get to fly it this weekend unless I am willing to accept it in the used looking shape its in.

If every muffler he sold looked like this, than I understand, this is what you get. But I don't think every muffler he sells looks this way.

Your reaction is perfectly legitimate.

If they had to send a scratched pipe, they should offer a good deal on it; not sell it at the same price as one non scratched!

Now, I guess you don't want the harsle of waiting some other 10 days or so. So fly it - scratches won't do bad - , and ask for compensation, such as free spare parts, or an advance on your next order.

If not, change cream shop!

I expect the same thing...If I buy something new I want it to be what I bought! not have to do a bunch of work to it.....thats the whole reason I bought new was so I wouldnt have to do a bunch of work!
