We've done this a few times in the past, but I'll continue to tout the crappiness that was the Gohbee.

Cheap chinese (typical) rip-off of the popular Thunder Tiger Raptor series. These machines were total junk, marketed, sold and supported by shysters.

It may not be the worst . For me it was Century. I had a hawk pro a couple of ravens and an nx raven
Also had a swift 550 carbon and was lucky to sell it.

They were unreliable. If a part didn't fail, it came apart or wore out prematurely.
Then they brought out new kits with old parts.

And I guess that's why they are gone !

Even though I loved mine, the JR Venture 30 was a nightmare out of the box. Granted, with about $500 in KSJ parts It flew like a Voyager.

Thinking back, Why didnt I just get a Voyager???

I also would have to cast a vote for the Century Hawk Line. My First Helicopter was a Hawk II 50 which I picked up second hand. The head was so sloppy it was said that the head had built in expo. The wire drive tail was also very sloppy. I purchased a new Hawk III and with everything brand new it was just as bad as the the used Hawk II. I was pretty disappointed with the Century line and replaced them with a Raptor 50 which was a major step up. Which was replaced by a JR Ego 46 and the ultimately a MA 99specSE.

Blade 400 Tops My List as the WORST.
So many plastic parts and they were expensive to crash and fix. There were so many aluminum replacement parts. By the time you bought all of that, you could have afforded a Trex450.

RTF right out of the box. Not for me. Replaced with XHeli and Align. Never have looked back. Does anyone agree?

I might be dating myself but Dubro made one way back in the olden times that was impossible to fly, and there was a little fixed pitch heli made of a single piece of thin plywood, weights on the tail fixture for a gyro and powered with a cox .049 motor. It actually flew and survived many crashes but was problematic in almost every respect.

Another vote for blade 400. So sloppily made you basically had to replace every part from the cyclics to the head button to make it fly. Even then i was a giant turdTeam Synergy, Team FBL Rotors-------if its not broke...it will be!
