Don't believe on the HobbyKing/HobbyCity product feedback comments.

I was trying to leave negative feedback for one of the HK pis products and after submission the application behaved exactly as if it had accepted the review, but when you try to find it in the list it does not exist.

Tried several times from different browsers and computers.

This functionality must be on purpose and cheat, so there are not many negative feedback reviews.

What a scam!

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

most likely its just moderated...a quite common function of forum, guestbook, review, and other feedback software that takes input from the general public.

any comment submitted must be approved. once (if) approved, it will show up.

if it ain't broke, break it.

Several times I've left reviews and had them disappear. If what you were saying was really a problem then the first five reviews wouldn't contain statements like "DOA on " or "burst into fire fire power up" like they do now.

A company that sells primarily clones of other companies products is never going to have an accurate and honest feedback system.

WHAT!?!?! You mean a company that condones and promotes stealing other manufacturer's designs isn't an honest business? Surely it can't be true. Get a grip man, they've been running this game for 2 years now, "what'd'a'ya live under a rock?"

They don't actually steal designs.
They're handed to them.

The big companies farm out manufacturing and the small companies doing the work just build a few for themselves with cheaper stuff.

If the product isn't legally protected and the design is handed to the so called cloners,there's no room for the big guys to whine about it.

I could start stamping out Trex clones myself if I wanted.
No law against it.
I can even get a CAD rendering from them if I need it.

I literally never use the word literally right.

I don't believe that. Align is not just going to give you the CAD drawing of their design. Are they?

They wont give you any CAD drawings, but if you for some reason have access to the drawings there isnt much they can do to stop you using them without legal protection.

If it doesnt work, throw money at it...

I dont have a problem with Hobby King. I like the reviews. They seem pretty balanced to me. You just have to know going in that you're dealing with some very spotty quality control. Sometimes it will work out for you, sometimes it wont.

I would never fly main blades from them and probably won't use any servos from them in a heli. I do have one set of servos in a Raptor 90 right now but I'm getting gunshy. They've done nothing wrong but I think I'm going to pull them.

I didn't have a problem either until I had three DOA items on the same order.

Wait... it will come to you too.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.
