    RE: DAMAGE SHIPPING/MISSING PARTS ISSUES____Post here

    Hi,I contacted your customer service phone # on 11/25/09 in regards to damage on a order. I was given the email address 'raidenjimmy@yahoo.com'and told to send information to it. However I have yet to hear anything so I will post the same here,

    "Hi my name is Rick and I am sending this for my father. These are pictures of the damage to the fuselage on his just received purchase. NitroPLANE Order Id 670209. It is a Piper J3 Cub .120 size arf. The damage is to the inside edge of the fuse not the side closest to the box as you can see. It appears the damage was done prior to being boxed. Please let me know what can be done to resolve this. Shipping tracking # is 1ZX03V030398358464"

    Here is the link to the kit http://www.nitroplanes.com/j3picub120en.html

    My girlfriend ordered my the Edge 540 balsa kit and it is missing the screws and mount for the electric engine option. I would like these parts please! Also does the kit not come with a nose cone?

    RE: DAMAGE SHIPPING/MISSING PARTS ISSUES____Post here



    So it's going on 10 weeks now and I've still not heard anything regarding the canopy for my Cessna 421.  I received an email advertisment from Nitro Planes last week stating that they had a limited stock of the Cessna 421 on sale.  So the only thing that I can assume is that Nitro Planes is not planning on replacing the canopy.

    As far as I'm concerned Nitro Planes can keep the canopy - it's a $179.00 lesson learned and chalked up to experience and will be the last product I purchase from Nitro Planes.

    You can PM John ( nitrostaff1 ) here, but if that is the extent of the damage, it is not worth doing this.

    Instead fix the broken former with epoxy, and paint over the chipped area. It will be quicker and easier than trying to deal with a replacement.

    It's a simple fix.

    Ibid with Scubadog's plane above.

    My father didn't buy this to repair it and make it flyable. If you purchased a new car and when you picked itup you noticed a scratch in the paint and acut in the seatwould you just take the car and go on your marry way? You could always take a little thread and paint and fix them up. But that's not what you paid for. You would want it made right. Just as we do. Right now I am in contact with Jimmy Raiden. I will let you know what the out come is as soon as we reach an agreement.

    RE: DAMAGE SHIPPING/MISSING PARTS ISSUES____Post here

    Yes that is understood.

    However with most ARF's you NEED the skills to deal with such things, and as such you'll find that fixing this is somewhat trivial.

    20 minutes worth of work if that.

    You'll spend much more time dealing with the exchange than with the repair.

    I've received a dinged up plane or two in the past and I just use the repair time to determine whether to persue and exchange or not.

    opjose that is not the point. I know how to do repairs. I have scratch built planes from Ziroli plans and others. You know that is excatly what is wrong with the US today. It's easier just to let it go than to take the time to make it right. We let every body step on us. It's just easier that way.  I will be posting my emails with Jimmy Raiden when we get this settled.

    Hello, I have a Nitroplanes Lancair 120 that I received on 12/3/09 and it is missing the assembly manual and spinner. The box has obviously been opened before as some of the parts were not packaged and just floating around in the box (like the wing tips). thank you for your time.

    I'm sorry but the electric mount doesn't come with this plane. Builder is responsible to get that setup on their own if they want to convert it into electric. You you said nose cone, do you mean cowling/engine cover?
