Well, it looks like this guy is a scammer. I bought 3x NIB JR DS8917 servos from him for $300 on 5/24/10, and now on 6/4/10 they have still not arrived. He won't answer his emails. He won't respond to a Paypal dispute. Here is his post:

https://rc.runryder.com/helicopter/t589560p1/

Richard Tyler Prowell who goes by Cooldog here on RunRyder and uses the email: tylerprowell@gmail.com was also arrested a few months ago for felony theft, so buyer beware:

You need to change your feedback. You gave him a positive rating. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for noticing that. I changed it to negative feedback. I don't want anyone else to get ripped off either.

Justin

I wouldn't have bought anything from someone that's been a member for 1024 days with no posts and 3 classifieds.
I wish you luck in resolving this.

Yep, my own fault. But you know what I learned? After 30 days, a "New Heliman" becomes a "Heliman" irregardless of how many posts. So after 30 days you are no longer alerted by the green color on the name. I didn't realize that before. Now I know.

Cool Dog looks to be a Cool POS.
I f'ing hate thieves! The rage and beat down I would give some punk if I ever caught them with their hands in my cookie jar. He will get an accumulated beat down for other times I've been burned and haven't been able to get even.

Sorry about your loss.

Oh man .. I was about to jump on those servos as well but you beat me to them.

Good job on finding those links about him, you should be a CSI agent or something

I paid with my credit card, so I should be able to get my money back. But he also scammed TommyK who paid $80 for the other servo with his debit card. I hope he can get his money back as well.

just think what it would be like to walk into to prison and have to tell them you are there for scamming people over radio controlled helicopter parts.

at that point you might as well reach back and stretch your ass open yourself. you'd be the bitch of all bitches.

He's going to go to prison for felony theft of sunglasses. Scamming people for RC stuff in probably just a misdemeanor. But did you see the link I posted where he won some RC competition? Look at how things have changed.
