Hello all,
I am one of those that have not yet received my heli and it was ordered on 11/27/04. Wes's site said they ship USPS and I figured, ok it should be here in a day or so........I think they are lost somewhere inside of Lancaster's Post Office.


I sent my first PM to Wes on December 4 which was one week later and told him I hadn't received my stuff. He told me that he did indeed ship everything but he would send me a second order and that I could mark the second package "return to sender" whenever I got it. So that it wouldn't cost me any additional postage.


I called him Monday and said nothing had arrived yet. He overnighted me the motor, speed control, and a digital caliper that I had originally ordered. He said he would have a business associated drop ship a heli to me and I should see that on Wednesday.

I RECEIVED MY MOTOR, ESC, AND CALIPER TODAY--just like Wes said I would. I expect the heli tomorrow and will post when I receive it.

I really appreciate all that Wes has done for me. I would suggest the other guys that haven't got theirs yet to PM Wes and talk to him about it. I bet you there are a bunch of helis in the back room at the Lancaster post office.

We need to keep these posts in one spot and not hijack threads.

Thanks again, Wes.

Looks like it's us that are East of the Mississippi that seem to have the longest transit times (big surprise). I notified Wes after a week went by and updated him. He promptly replied and confirmed my kit did indeed ship. Good on him.

I don't need the kit right away, I just wanted to let it be known how long it's taking for things to get across country right now. USPS sux, and I hope that Modefo's can start using alternative shipping methods, even if a premium must be paid.

Erich

PS, how the heck do you pronounce "Modefo's" ?

I had a problem with the shipping on several occasions, and everytime I would get impatient and doubtful it was either my fault for wrong info or three times the USPS fault. Not once did Modefo ignore my pm's or tell me anything negative, just always reassured me! He also did more than any Dealer in this Hobby to keep me happy. I would not bat an eye in ordering from him again. Great guy and greater service. Thanks Wes for all you do!

I have dealt with modefo many times and you can be sure that if he says he sent it....it has been sent. Let's all remember that it is the holiday season and the USPS has a high volume of deliveries.

Keep up the good work wes.

Wes you are the man!! It is like we went back in time to when customer service was a top priority. Like when you could pull up to a gas station and they would check your oil and clean your window. Now they just charge you your 2.50 a gallon and kick you in the a$$ on the way out.

You stand behind what you sell and take pride in what you do!!!!!
You will only go up from here and you have all of my business. Keep up the GOOD work.

I think kirtdog's hit this one on the head: 'tis the season for USPS.

It took them a week to get me a priority package from New York to southern IN - while UPS took two days from VA.

Patience...

Great Service

I ordered stuff from Modefos and got it delivered to my door in Ireland in less than a week, what a great service, especially this time of the year. Will do business again with Modefos

Shun--the topic does say slow shipping and WES IS A GREAT GUY!!!


I received my heli today from Modefos!!!!

This is the one he had drop shipped to me. Definitely a good guy and businessman. I just PM'd him and told him how much I appreciate what he has done. My order is now complete and I'm looking forward to starting on the kit.

And, I already have another order in with Wes right now.....
