The E-Sky Tandem (civvy Orange) arrived today but it was in bad shape. The shippers had thought to secure the helicopter box inside the shipping box with the help of a cardboard "wedge" that, of course, came loose during shipping and the heli box bounced all over the place. Here's what broke:
- The front landing gear mount broke (taking the screw with it) off of the frame.
- ALL FOUR of the mounts that hold the plastic body shell to the frame snapped off (also with their screws still in them!!!
I can't believe how crappily this poor heli was packed! I've sent email to Xheli's support as well as tried to file a support case on their web page. I hope that they come through and don't make me pay for return shipping or something because they really messed badly with how they sent me the helicopter!
