    I have nothing against the vendor in this case, yet I do agree and hope the OP gets a decent refund. To me something just does not smell right with this transaction and without facts it is difficult...

    I keep thinking about the small business model and even though a small business they must do right by the customer. If the plane the guy got was in the shape described the seller MUST make right and...

    One thing to consider when we have so much information on modding a plane like the Rev 70 is just how it may impact you and your style of flying. An example might be the argument of pin hinges verses...

    Interesting posts. The technology changes in the past 25 years is nothing short of amazing. Battery technology is super great! I switched all my planes over to LIFE batts and wow, that was the best...

    Cheap to one person may not be cheap to another. I cannot always equate price to quality. Just because you pay more does not mean you get more quality. Certainly in some cases you do get more...

    One thing may be worth mentioning and that is how we measure quality. What decides what is quality component? This is all relative really. I don't spend a 1000 dollars for servos in a 30cc plane....

    That is exactly what I mean. This would be relevant to the area and costs. I would expect to pay more for a club like you have due to costs. 150-200 makes sense. You can take your annual costs, how...

    I don't quite agree with this assessment. I don't know how we can judge what is reasonable based on a golf club or hunt club for that matter. How does one determine what is reasonable? To me it is...

    WOW...400 - and I thought 25 to 50 was bad! That must be an elite club of RC jocks. Do they get the pee-ons to carry their planes out to the runway? :cool: :D
