Default GWS

I purchased one of their 8 channel dual conversion receivers for an electric conversion I was doing.

The receiver was DOA, so I got the RMA and filled out the paperwork to return it under warranty.

They received it the beginning of MARCH. I STILL do not have a replacement.

All the emails I have sent have had pretty much the same answer/reply - we are waiting on a shipment from the factory. WAITING ON A SHIPMENT FOR 6 MONTHS ??!!!

When I requested an equivalent substitution, I was offered a 6 channel dual conversion receiver with 600' LESS range. That isn't what I would call an equivalent substitution.

If you decide to purchase anything from them, hope and pray you will not need the warranty (or lack thereof).

Default RE: Stay away from GWS

Yeah, I had the same problem a few years back when I bought a GWS receiver. The hobby store I bought it from refused to take it back, so I was just stuck with it. They went out of business probably in part due to crappy customer service (Creek Hobbies from Rancocas NJ for those who knew them) I'd never purchase one again, especially when you now have really great micro receivers like the Berg Microstamp series. Full range, thinner antenna, and smaller/lighter than the GWS units, which are ancient technology now.
