Was it one of the legitimate 'Alien Technology Limited' Jumpjet units (as described on the UK Snelflight site: www.snelflight.co.uk
) or the cheaper Chinese knock-off?
If its the knoick-off, you just got 'Buyer Beware'd out of your $. If it was legit, heck, complain to the retailer. They should replace it as defective. Snelflight backs their stuff, to the point of doing software upgrades on legit equipment.
I talked to someone at Snelflight over the weekend, both they and their US distributor are OUT of the Jumpjet... no reason stated, mebbe issues over the chinese knock-off issue (alterations to make it incompatible for spares, perhaps?)
I want to get one, but not a cheap knockof thats going to be DOA or fail after a week.
