Default Buyer Beware - Gary Wayne (Gary Troutman)

I bought a used Starfire from Gary Wayne (Real name is Gary Troutman) that was supposed to be complete with turbine and digital servos. I was on a tight schedule having driven from Wichita to Dallas and didn't take the time I should have to check things out. I also offered to finish a Byron A-4 for him and headed back to my hotel room with tyhe Starfire and A4. When I got to the hotel I looked at the turbine and discovered it's too small for the Starfire and was incomplete. I contacted him and agreed to get a ducted fan and engine in exchange for the turbine. At 3 AM he sent a message saying he wanted to come get the A4 (didn't see it because I was asleep). At 5am I replied that he could come get it but I was leaving for home at 9. He didn't respond until I had already left and I had no intention of driving two hours south to his house and then 7 hours home. I wasn]['t going to call him since everything was looking really suspicious and I wanted proof of all conversations as this point.

When I got home the next day I looked at the servos and none of them are digital, as he said. He told me that he'd order new servos to replace the ones that are in the jet. Fast f orward to today - recveived the DF and engine and 4 $10 Hobbyking servos, not the digital HV servos that he said he was sending. I contacted him and he say there was no way he was spending hundreds of dollars on servos that he said he would send. When I asked about the servos he started berating me and calling names.

The only thing that was true about the Starfire is that it's a Starfire. Buyer beware - he's a shceister and will rip you off. I have everything in writing and can prove it. Name:  user_online.gif
