Maybe the reason why the thread has gone on so long is because of the way Helidirect chose to conduct business when it goes wrong.... They AVOID you.... hence the thread title.
Helidirect are selling prototypes in every instance, not one frame is the same as the previous, and this is why they don't give you instructions.
Have you also noticed that some products on the web page don't have dimensions, for example my frame required a 9mm boom and the tail fitted a 10mm boom "This feature was a surprise to me when it all arrived".
Possibly, guys wouldn't spend so much time in front of the computer bitch'n about helidirect's service if they where out flying... only thing is my brand new heli required open heart surgery and some new hardware before it would take to the air.

Some people get a sour taste in the mouth when they have been shafted, it's only fair to protect other fellow heli enthusiasts.

3 orders from Helidirect and no problems here...So far, it appears that over half of the RC Heli vendors are being flamed because something went horribly wrong with an order.

Can somebody please direct me to an RC Heli related post that ISN't full of Bi**hing and moaning!

BTW, anyone else have any problems with Century Heli ???

Professor Fate, you oddly sound like someone that works for HH... Especially since 3/4 of this thread are customers of HH who have experienced the same problems.

You come off as a child acking for attention by your posts on the dislike of this thread. You haven't had anything relevant to add, and fail to recognize the real reason behind the discussions here.

Allanach hit the nail right on the head; and you would have recognizes this discovery if you read the entire thread instead of looking at it as "b***ching and moaning". I can't speak on behave of others... but HH ignored 75% of my attempts to contact them and when given the chance to correct the order they STILL screwed up royally.

The discussion of this thread supports the members of this forum by helping minimize others from finding themselves in the same bad situations and in hope that it will direct them to purchase from alternative vendors who DO respect there customers and sell decent products. Helidirect is the exact opposite, a joke to say the least.

It does NOT mean that everyone will experience the same problems, but the odds are good... look around, then make intelligent comments or find something better to do with your time.

HH can kiss my rear! And as for you give it a rest. We heard it a million times. BOO HOO someone didn't give a lollie pop with my order! I like you sometime somewhere somehow someone screw us on an order. I just press on and never order from them again. When I have a problem,I just call the CC company and put it in thier hands. Some stuff I didn't have to return. Face it! You got screwed(like all of us at one time). Sorry it turned out this way for you. By the way I haven't seen any DirectHeli ads?Welcome my son, Welcome to the machine

Your post shows your level of intellect. I received my funds in full, and gave my experience a rest a long time ago... since then, i've merely posted in response to others experiences.

Grow up kid, your making a fool out of yourself.

I ordered a MicroHeli rotor head/swash assembly on this past Wednesday, received it Friday, installed it Friday evening, and have six battery packs through it (1.5 hours!) flight time and I am VERY pleased.

What more can I say? I received fast shipping (USPS Priority Mail), components of an expected high quality, and excellent flight characteristics.

No complaints here. This was my third order with HeliDirect and all have been satisfactory.

Some people are confused.....
Those people need to go to the "buy from Helidirect thread".
Other members on this forum & myself are simply posting comments that are relevant to the name of this thread, on the other hand some members are not.
People who are tired of bitchin & moaning need to start a new thread, something like "The world is perfect and all helis are equal".

I would appreciate someone posting the links to above mentioned threads as this may encourage the thin skinned to leave.

Damn, I thought the world was perfect, and now I know why my Blade CP doesn't fly like my Raptor.

Should we start a topic to explain the difference between different helicopters?

I wonder who is the one with thin skin. For it seems like some people just can't bear the fact that someone may have had a reasonabe, if not pleasant purchasing experience with HD. If you don't like them, fine, don't buy from them. I'm not going to bash you because you are not pleased with them. And you shouldn't bash those of us that have had good shopping experiences with HD

I recently had an issue with another major advertizer here at RR. A phone call resolved the issue, and they upheld their end by resolving the matter as they promised. They may, or may not get my next order. It's my choice to make.

gmcullen....

This thread was meant for HD products, microheli is not HD. They are a merely a Microheli reseller. A blind man can ship a good product correctly.

Another thing, i've stated support for both sides of the fence in this thread a couple of times. If someone has had a good experience, i'm glad and posts alike are more than welcome.

I also wish people would read posts/threads before making accusations and post relevant information instead of posting crap that are merely for the sake of argueing/fighting.

Seriously, If you don't like it, don't read it/post. This thread isn't affecting your life, costing you money, or hurting you in anyway... If it bothers you, it's your fault for sticking your nose where it doesn't belong. Very simple.

I can't believe you have waisted this much of your time and loosing all your patience over some parts that got screwed up . The man said he was trying to fix it . It isn't going to happen overnite give the man a chance . You say he doesn't read your email when he gets a thousand a day how would you like him to do that . You act like these parts your buying that he is making a million dollars and you said hire more people . You said he has good prices he hires more people there goes those good prices . Every company goes through something like this . At lest he came on here and stood up and took all your beatings . You said if he had time to come on here why can't he answer your emails . It's a lot easier to come on here and reach a couple hundred people at one time . So give the guy a break take your money back and don't let it bother you just go some where else . You think those little parts you got messed up are something TRY HELIHOBBY took me for over $650.00 and I haven't seen it yet that was October 2005 . Now you want to talk about customer service they won't even call you or answer the phone or reply to your emails I was the 50th in line to complain at the better business bureau. So take a deep breath get a cold drink and enjoy the night . God Bless Scott Sr Happy Flying Scott Sr. ><> ****Support Our Troops**** ><>

lol @ scott sr.. another example of someone who doesn't pay attention.

My ordeal with HD is well over people, i've only posted in reference to others experiences.

This thread has now turned into nothing but crap, thanks to irrelevent argumentative pointless posts such as these.

I'm done, in fact i'm not quite sure why I have explained and defended myself this far. It's like trying to reason with children.

lol, unbelievable.

kcasner,
I think your last post said it all!
Some people beleive Bad or no service, crappy parts, complete lack of quality control, lousy product knowledge & ignorance is what gives you cheap prices.... this is not the case as other heli stores have proven.
This thread has had thousands of views and I only wish that I had seen it before I handed my hard earened dollars over the these cowboys.

Yes your correct I wouldn't keep trying to explain myself but sometimes it seems like others don't read the entire thread and you find your repeating yourself. There's always people here on RR who will agree to disagree Jimmi
