I have seen a couple of posts here in reference to buying items on ebay and more specifically aero-omni. I just wanted to let everyone know that I had a very bad experience with aero-omni.

Unfortunatley, I had already placed an order before I saw the post here on RR. I never received my items and was meet with profanity when I emailed Paul Macha, evidently the punk behind aero-omni, in reference to receiving my items. This is a Spain based company and can't be trusted to follow through with their orders.

My opinion would be to stick with Ricks and Heliproz!!!!!

I got mine OK...

For what it's worth, I got my set from him yesterday. It took about 1.5 weeks, but they finally made it... and that's really not too bad, from that far away. They had a minor defect near the blade grip end where it looked like the whatever-material (carbon?! ha!) didn't fill in properly, but otherwise appeared to be OK. The seams are a little coarse, but hey, what do you expect for a $5.00 bill? Honestly, I just wanted a set of carbons, and didn't want to spend big money on the factory jobs and end up breaking them or whatnot... and I couldn't resist the price on these ones from aero-omni. If I like how these are, I'll get the factory units from my LHS and probably be happier. So, I don't know the guy and I'm not defending him, but they're not that bad for the price you pay.. even if they take a while to get. Assuming you actually get them. ;-)

I am sorry but I simply cannot understand why some of you spend a fortune on your helicopters then buy cheap Shi* from idiots on Ebay who you can easily see from his feedback and various forums that his stuff is rubbish to say the least.

Why risk your safety (and more importantly if you dont care about yourself,) the safety of other people around you flying inferior products.?

Some of you deserve to get wacked by a cheap rotor blade, maybe it will wake you up. As far as i am concerned there should be some legal governing body endorsing and approving blades etc for helicopters and props for planes.

But hay, some of you will do what you want to save a penny or two. Not thinking of the consequences.

I was able to get a few sets of blades from aero-omni for testing (hehe) for free when he first showed up. The second the blades arrived, I laughed my head off at the poorest sets of blades I have ever seen. I wouldnt let my worst enemy fly with them. Luckily, I never lost a cent from him as others have. I keep the blades around to show people when they need a laugh - or for stirring paint

I got mine in 2.5 weeks and when i got them i checked them out and they were crap. I had not seen the RR post because i didn't know about runryder yet. There were all kinds of pinholes and the blades were warped like really really bad. And just by holding them you could tell one weighed more. Okay not that last part but they were crappy blades.

Your mileage may vary...

Well listen folks, I may be the new guy and all, but I bought my blades from aero-omni prior to really getting into this forum, so I didn't know anything about this all. Now, having the blades in my hand, they're *not* what a lot of you make them out to be. Yes, they're not the best quality in the world, but for cryin' out loud, they're *$5.00* a set. What do you expect?! I'm a beginner, I wanted a set of carbon blades, and now I've got them for next to nothing. When I want some nice ones, I'll get 'em from my LHS and pay good money for them, but I'll do *that* when I stop all these minor crashes and blade nicks.

And Chef, fear not for your life. I fly my Blade CP (which didn't cost a fortune!) only in my garage at this point, and I don't usually have anyone in the garage with me that could possibly be maimed or killed by a broken flying blade fragment. I know what I've got here, and I can dig that. I've got no regrets, yet. When the damn thing turns to shrapnel in mid flight and I lose a $70 4in1 in the resulting crash, I'll say "Chef warned me about this!", but until then, relax buddy.

They're just toy helicopters, guys...

Replace "lose a $70 4in1" with "my right eye" and you may see the worry here.

HA ignorance causes the darwin effect, and just like a buddy of mines brother left his car running without the brake on and it rolled down the hill and got totaled after smashing a tree, good thing, wouldnt want him on the road......

Anyway any one who says
They're just toy helicopters, guys...
is an effin retard, YOUR blade is a toy helicopter however aeeromi doesnt just sell shotty Blade blades, he sells 90 blades, 60 blades.....

but anyway keep using crap stuff and back up a seller who half asses his way around ebay and treats his customers like crap...

OK I have been around for a few days as most know. And I had yet to see his crap. But recently I saw a set of his blades, as well as a Raptor 50 boom that came from him. And I can say 100% for sure I am not to sure I would defile the can of paint by mixing it with these. They are not only junk, they are useless CRAP. And I agree that their should be regualtions against selling this level of crap. Blades that go on a micro and blades that go on a 90 or 50 are not even CLOSE to the same thing. This guy should be ran out of the business. But unfortunatly there will be enough uninformed people that will buy from him to keep him around for a long time to come. Unfortunate it is. Gone he should be! To the guy that started this thread. Feel good you didn't get your goods. As these could have been the blades that killed someone. Perhaps someone you loved. So maybe it was God watching out for you. Consider it a blessing, and post negative feedback. Then be done with the whole deal. Chalk it up as a lesson learned.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

someone should make up a fake ebay account, bid on all his stuff, win, dont pay, and leave negative feedback for each auction.... and when that name gets banned, have another do the same thing until he gives up.
