Your trying to tell me that a nation wide hobby shop is selling "clone" equipment and they don't know about it ???? gimme a break..
OK, if you say so. Unless they knew this and unless they opened the boxes, how would they know?
Not making excuses for the store, I am just asking a question.
If I go into the store and see that box how will I know it is a fake? Help me avoid what you experienced.
If this happened to me I would contact the manufacturer and ask them for assistance rather than accusing the store of disreputable practices based on some post made on this forum. The poster may be right. Or the Mfg may have changed their process. Or this may be a fake.
Spektrum is having problems with fakes in the market. Reputable dealers are getting fake goods and they are so good there is almost no way to tell.
And saying they are Chinese does not mean they are fake anything. The real ones are probably made in China too.
