Default xtremecx2.com ripoff

Let me start by saying that I know this could come across as petty, but I just want to let you guys know my bad experience.

A long while ago I ordered some 'xtreme blades' for my Esky Robins. They showed up and evrything was fine. So I i ordered an upgraded flybar for around $6 +shipping. It arrived bet, which will happen if you send a long thin rod of metal through the mail in an envelope. I emailed and the guy told me to send it back and he would refund my money through paypal. He never did. I emailed a couple of times and them wrote it off when he didnt respond. A couple of months went by and I figured Id try again. I mean, everyone has a bad day or maybe some emergency was going on. He didnt reply to that email either. Or the next one. Finally I gave up. It wasnt worth all my time and energy to worry about $8 or so.

Like I said, $8 is a petty amount of money, but its MY $8 and he essentially stole it from me. Now, maybe it was a fluke, but I will never use this store again and I just wanted to give you all a heads up. The store name is KR's Hobbies, the website is xtremecx2 dot com.

Thanks.

Me and my friend had some issues with them before ....... We ordered around $200US of parts, we waited for 2 month for it to arrive in the mailbox(super slow shipping times)!
ok so we opened up the packages, parts were missing! [:@] eg. blades, battery, flybar. We ordered 4 sets of blade, 3 batteries, 2 flybar, but they only send us one of each... which is around $60-$70US of parts missing!!!!! [:@][:@]

So we e-mailed them a couple of times, no reply what so ever~ all I can say is lesson learnt! NEVER BUYING FROM THEM EVER AGAIN.....

Huh. Guess it wasnt a fluke after all. Sorry to hear that you guys lost so much money to that thief. Especially when you consider that (currently) $60US is $90AU.

Thank guys, I was going to place an order with these guys (not any more).

Funny you mention about them not responding to emails, I sent them an email asking a question and they sent an email right back (within a couple of hours). I guess if you don't have
a problem they have no problem sending emails.

Thanks, I think I will stay away from these guys.
