I've found parts for my Hirobos over at RCJapan but I refuse to order overseas for the Raptors. Note to US distributor. Get parts available ASAP before I decide to dump my TT shelf queens

Note taken. We are working with (and have been for some time, as many of you know) Thunder Tiger to steer their upcoming decision in the right direction. Unfortunately we're not the decision makers, but I will communicate all the info as soon as it's confirmed.

Hey,
You need to be quick as I'm already looking to sell my TT stuff and go to another brand, at the moment I'm thinking of a T rex 600n, but am doing research on the synergy and gaui brands.

However once I've made the move, I will not be back- ever.
You could be selling me kits/parts for the next 20 years or loose me for ever.

Gemheli.

I know you all are very frustrated with how long this is taking. We have been going back and forth daily with Thunder Tiger to finalize our message.

This announcement could come as early as tomorrow, but in all reality I am tired of making guesses and commitments to decisions that are out of my control. But it is coming and it should be relatively soon.

Hello
For what it's worth I phoned a shop in the uk yesterday, as they claimed they could get parts within a week.
I asked them to conform this was still true, so they phoned Amerang to confirm this was still the case.
They emailed me back saying Amerang could in fact NOT get the parts and TT were dropping the the whole range of helis.

Maybe this is the announcement?

If someone in England (Gameheli) is having the same problem as we in the States then the problem isn't just an Americam distributor. A US company going thru negotiations with TT would certainly know exactly what is wrong to have stopped the flow of parts and so far I haven't heard what exactly had happened to stop the parts in the first place. Since its more than just the US then something really big is going on and I would like to know what the original problem was.

The long delay, finally a message that we will hear something (Though it wont be the actual parts, just a word on when) and then days turn into weeks along with the fact that its not just US makes me think that Gemheli may have heard right, but I sure hope that Ryan is right!!!

I will try to buy direct from TT in Taiwan the first time I need something but if I have any glitch doing that I will switch to Align right away so the clock is running.

in the uk we have had
the dactory is closed and moving to china so part will come soon
then a release of new models and very poor back up

then the uk distributor (amerang)going bust and being taken over
but there is a problem of who owns the parts in the warehouse
so there will be a delay in sorting them out
but the new owner of amerang has made a fresh order of parts
and they will be here soon
and guess what
yes
No parts
i have a raptor 90 with no parts support
a x50 with no parts support
and a raptor 550e with no parts support

and a crashed raptor 60 still broken as no parts
i won't make the mistake of buying tt again

Good to know that they are delivering the goods so to speak.
It's funny you only hear the bad stuff about them

Regard
