I am the very unlucky owner of the Cobra AH1 fuselage this man was
selling. As many of you remember it was the one with the firing rockets. Well, it came in today packaged up with plastic shopping bags his dirty socks and dinner forks. The body was completely taken apart and all the paint peeled off, but that is the least of the problems. Other than having to repaint it, I also need to retrim the whole thing as it looks like it was cut out with a pair of pliers.
The wood parts have masking tape and servo screws holding it together on the inside, honestly i have never seen such a poor build in my life
IPmed him for a refund and offered to pay return shippping (and give him his missing socks and dirty fork) he declined and signed off "your flying buddy".
Beware of this guy I am going to post pics of this awesome build in my gallery and let it speak for itself. Then I will throw it out because it would be more work to fix it than to build a new one. He said he is close friends with the owner of Skyhunter Hobbies and used him as a reference, I think that guy needs to be aware this kind of name dropping could cost them sales. This man has no integrity at all
none of us are perfect, but I always try to make it right and this guy won't even consider doing the right thing.

It will be interesting to see what this buyer ended up with. This is
one of the reasons I quite buying site unseen and stuck with local
sellers. Sorry about you misfortune. I would have to go to somebody's
AS# if that was done to me.

thanks for the heads up, but don't let it ruin your opinion of the majority of guys on this site, who like me take their reputation very seriously and enjoy the benefits of this forum. Only when you put them out there can we weed the bad apples out. So, thanks

RAW DEAL
the cobra in the pics probaly not the one sent the add says all hard work done and if thats the case then there shouldn't be an issue if it is as bad as stated then the seller should make good and REFUND THE BUYERS MONEY unless his intent is to rip people off then he probally won't or even consider simply putting up post won't stop him from screwing somebody else ....so do the right thing thedmc760... if this wasn't an intentioal ripoff and you stand behind your description refund the money the buyer offered to pay return shipping...balls in your court!

NO SUCH THING AS GRAVITY.....THE EARTH SUCKS!!

X2 ^^^^^^^ I have 100% positive feedback and stand by all of my sales and trades. This is typically a very tight knit community and we tend to look out for each other. If you don't get any satisfaction from this seller, don't throw the fuse out before we all have a good look at it. I am an aerospace fabricator and if there is any way that I can lend you good advice regarding the repair/mods, I am happy to help.

Looks like junk to me. But you know what they say, "One man's trash is another man's treasure," or something like that.

I would not have been pleased at all with that sale. Did you receive these types of pictures prior to the transaction? How was it described?

OUCH Looks like you have a lot of glass repair and finish work ahead of you. Looks like he used plastic explosives for the trim work... Some of the parts can probably be obtained from the mfr.. I would be royally P'd OFF over this type of deal.

PAY PER VIEW
HERE IS A NOVEL THOUGHT...
in your other topic posted in the scale helis section, you offer to video you running the heli over with a CATAPILLER,(or the like)...maybe we all could help you out with a $2 deposit in your paypal for the enjoyment of the show.....it just might add up to a profit...I AM IN.
