Thanks, I rescued that plane from a trash can at the field and rebuilt it and purchased a new canopy. It has recently been turned over to an up and coming member of our field as I have 5 new 3DHS ships this year. Gotta spread the love ya know.

Sure they can. There are what maybe 30 of us that are actually offended by what HK did/does? There are hundreds more on this site that love HK and will continue to support them. Heck even of the 30 or so that are offended, how many do you think will stop buying anything there? I bet less than 10-20 people actually stop buying HK products as a result of this. It's unfortunate, but at the end of day I don't guess I'm surprised by it.
I will stop buying their products, but I have sure bought plenty in the past.

I have never bought from copyking and after this I never will. They don't deserve my money. If I need cheap stuff ill buy from valuehobby or hobbypartz, not copyking.

I was stopping my purchases with HK some time back. It was hard when noone state side had a lipo in stock I wanted / price was cheap, but I am done. They are purposely coping the schemes to get sales attention, regardless if the chassis is a stolen cad or a different air frame all together, and it is working.

If this were EF or Aeroworks would I be bothered?...... Yes, its still using other companies good name / marketing and design, to sell sub standard products. I have closed out my HK/CK account, I have no use for this.

I stopped buying from them about a year ago when all three orders I received they lied on declared value I guess to pay less import tax.

I work for a major Sports company and I am in Asia Twice a year. Copying is a way of life for them. Funny thing is I can buy knock off clothing for less than my laundry is in China. I just draw the line on them not paying the right taxs and I won't support that.

I fly a bit of everything. I have a 57 330SC, I am hoping to have my 87 inch Extra SHP finished by the event. I have a 48 inch Rare Bare Reno Racer I am entering in the Foamy Combat <it lived through the one in New Jersey. I have a Nitro Plank that I like to buzz around for the smell of Glow.

I have a 70 Slick in for a motor box and a couple other 3DHS things to tinker with.

My first event was the last year and it made a big difference for me. You see videos and such from the events, but being on the ground seeing it, feeling it, getting to talk to pilots, cannot be replaced. You have got to get a pwny ride while you are there!

You let me know when you get to the event, <and any other addicts> I want to make sure to meet up with all that attend our event.

It is not nitro planes it is aero sky but nitro planes still sells it for them, what are we all going to stop buying gens ace lipo's? No because it is not NP them selves. With the HK thing it was HK themselves making that extra. But it is still a bummer that they are selling it.
