How that sits them on the dodgy scale I don't know, but remember they aren't the ones copying/stealing the design but they are guilty of selling that product I guess.
When you work for hobbyking and attach a "Fly The Best" (3dhs slogan) decal to a HobbyKing plane and make an advertisement video of it... i think they know exactly what they are doing. it's all very calculated. We're not talking a simple buying of a similar design to sell, this goes way deeper than that...
