I emailed Xtreme Productions and they said they'd send out a replacement spinner and screw free of charge. NICE!

So the package arrives real airmail from HK. They didn't send a spinner and screw. They sent a whole head kit. They also sent a set of their 120 landing gear and a sticker sheet.

I like their stuff. It's inexpensive, does the job and the service is great.
Savor this, because you are one lucky guy!!! I spent hundreds of dollars (literally) on Xtreme stuff every year for several years now and they dont even send me a 5% discount code on my next order for christmas

And as far as inexpensive ... this really lies in the eye of the beholder: for example, the frame for the mCPX is considerably cheaper than those from RKH or microheli. HOWEVER, if you want to have them all on a truly comparable level, you have to "upgrade" the XTREME upgrade frame significantly ... and in the end, it will have cost you substantially more than the microheli frame, which is the most expensive one of the 3 on the first look ...
And this is actually true for quite a few of their parts ... sooo - next time you buy something really inexpensive from XTREME (which I usually like, dont get me wrong) ... and you are NOT lucky enough to get another part for free with it ... add this up twice to see how really inexpensive it will be at the end of the day ...

just sayin" ...
