Nice "RANT"!!!!!!!!!! "BUT"BUT I am with Tyler and the rest that have posted here....
I have been running the rx's for over a year now and have only had a problem with one, which a notice had been posted about on their site along with a cure or the address to send them back to.....and that one is still in service and working just fine......and as far as the free upgrade to the latest revision, the cost of sending in the RX, or a BUNCH of them, in is not even a consideration, at least to me!!!
I can assure you that I have always had spectacular support and service from Horizon.
I have been watching and reading a lot about different problems that different RR members have had with all sorts of equipment and sometimes I need to just sit back an
It seems that a lot of people have never learned, forgotten, or haven't been in this hobby long enough to remember or learn how to mount a RX!!!! (Nothing personal intended here, but a mere "General Statement"
.... and if someone continues to have the same problem
, I would bet that it something in that/those machine/s that is causing the failure....
I, along with a LOT of others, fly some pretty large and expensive scale and pod and boom helis with this equipment, so failure would be quite a HIT to say the least
....and this goes for any heli that is being flown, OH,and how about the safety issues.....
IF you are shaking the antennas off of these rx's... check for
High Frequency Vibrations..... I have seen these cause tail booms and linkage to crack in flight over the years!!!!!! Think that might take the antenna off?????
I refuse to mount my RX's on a piece of Velcro on any nitro machine... it is still wrapped with foam, and mounted and the antennas are pointed outside of the foam as specified.... I also still use the "Strongbox" from my airplane flying days... :confused
!!!! Not to me....and maybe this is the change that should be noted in the instructions or a memo on the site on MOUNTING THE RX PROPERLY.....
As far as a "Class Action" suite....... blah. blah, blah..... the antennas don't fall off in the package!!!!!
Sorry, but this is JMHO!!!!!!!!!!!
Just a little something that I thought should be said....
