Default G2 complaints

As this is the xheli support forum I figure I should post here too just in case my e-mail doesn't get read, below are my e-mails to xheli:



Premium Exceed G2 concerns‏
From: Ken Gibson (darkfall_13_ryoko@hotmail.com)

I was quite excited when I received my G2 2 weeks ago. But that's about as far as it's been so far. Taking it out from the package and following the manual I tried hopping, but I couldn't get off the ground, even at full throttle. After hours of research I found out the pitch servo is bad, you can see that e-mail in your own records, or I have pasted below for your convenience. I never got a reply to that e-mail and tried calling a few times and managed to reach you on 1/15/09 5:19pm and I am told I will receive a replacement servo, though the heli itself arrived a day after shipment (quite amazing) I still have not seen my replacement servo.

Furthermore, I tried "driving" along the ground as someone suggested to get a feel for how the helicopter moves and I was having a blast thinking of how soon I could get the thing actually flying when the servo arrives. But that feeling is immediately struck down when the heli dies... 3 minutes into the flight! I've charged the battery several times these past 2 days totaling 6 flights and each time is the same, flight times of 3-5 minutes. I got this model because of the long flight time advertised "Approximately 20 minutes flight time on each charge - Optional Li- poly battery will help to achieve better performance and longer flight time." And surprise, I have the premium model with the Li-Po battery so I was thinking I'd get amazing flight times. But no, I get squat. Something needs to be done about this because it's very dissapointing to have had so many bad experiences with your company when I'm a brand new customer.

Thank you,

Kenneth Gibson

New Exceed G2 won't leave the ground‏
From: Ken Gibson (darkfall_13_ryoko@hotmail.com)

To: support@xheli.com

I recently received an Exceed G2 from you and I followed the manual to the letter. I've gone through it nearly a dozen times now to make sure I've done as it said. But the heli won't leave the ground even at full throttle. Upon reading around the internet as this is my first heli, I found out that the pitch changes with the throttle, so I thought maybe it was staying at a neutral pitch. But when I disconnected the motor and moved the throttle the servo for the pitch moved, though a small amount, I just thought it didn't take much to change the pitch. But I was still not satisfied with that. So I unhooked the linkage from the servo and moved the little shaft that changes the pitch by hand and it moves 5 or more times further by hand! Quite obviously changing the pitch visually on the blades. So I thought maybe it was binding, but by fingers alone the pitch linkages moved flawlessly. So I then hooked the battery up and left the servo unhooked from the linkage stuff. I then tried moving the throttle, and watching the gear I saw that it barely rotated, maybe the width of a tooth or 2. So at least from my end of things, it appears faulty.

So that brings me to the rest of this e-mail. What can we do about this since this is a brand new heli?

Thank you for your time,

Kenneth Gibson
