But hey bash the new guy trying to dig what can be a great company out of the ashes.
As a customer my statement stands. Needs rebranding, still has issues.

​​​​​​ As I am the owner of the company it's not that we had problems with orders we had problems with 2 employees Trying to steal the company from me They falsified documents stole all of the money from the bank And several other things I won't go into detail about but details for scale will be up and running soon As I guess you just can't trust anybody anymore he stays

Neal is a super cool guy who loves scale jets and will help anyone he can. It really sucks to see him taken advantage of by people he was trying help. Im sure he will regroup and bring back a much better and stronger company that we can all count on for scale jet accessories.

Thank you rudebwoy 419 I really appreciate the kind words it's a real shame not only have the 2 of them ruined details4scale reputation but marvin and grace make shirts and hats for a lot of events and their reputation is now tarnished with nothing but lies and deception we will have parts available soon thank you again for the kind again

I don't know Neil, but I do know Marvin and Grace, and I can't believe that they are a couple of thieves as this implies, surely there has to be more to this story,

Default Im whole again

Today Neal Smiley made it possible for me to obtain a full refund for the parts I ordered. Now i'm whole again. I cant wait for him to reorganize the company so we all can continue to enjoy American made scale accessories for our jets.
Thanks Neal

I also know Neal. He has always been a great guy to visit with at the various jet rallies that I see him at. Always helping any body that needs help!

I'm sure it is going to take a little time to get this all ironed out between the litigation, the move of equipment, and other things that are going to need to take place to get this company back from an attempted theft.

Bummer for all involved, let’s hope the first step in the next phase is offering realistic time frames from order to delivery...if item not in stock. Great products We all want to use!!!!!

Sorry to hear about the problems... Will be happy to see details running smoothly. BTW... if you get everything running and you happen to have any of those gear fail safes lying around, I paid for one 3 or so years ago... Love Dan though, he was just too overwhelmed to keep up with business and personal matters i believe. Good hearted people

I bought a custom AB ring at MS jets from Marvin. I'm trying to find out what battery to use with it but Marvin hasn't returned my test messages. Does anyone know? Its the new "ab controller".

Mine used a 1S LiPo. That was about 3 years ago so assuming they are the same. JS

Actually, I tossed the 5 feet of 14 ga. wire, the connectors, the box with a fan on it that runs down the RX battery and basically the whole rig except the ring itself. I soldered a small pin connector matching the one that came with my BVM F16 and it works perfect without all of that crap and NO EXTRA BATTERY.
