Value Hobby

Bought 2- 80 amp ESC and neither of them work so buyers be aware they will not do any thing about it one day out of warranty.

They lost me for a customer also due to not backing what they sell.

I bought a plane from them a couple years ago. It looked like someone stepped on the box. The wing was broken. I had NO problems getting a replacement except it took a couple weeks. But in fairness it was right before Christmas,and I wasn't putting on any pressure.
I won't hesitate to buy another one.

so you bought two of the same items, and both didn't work, and both were discovered to be working just one day after the warranty ran out?

And both are just DOA? Any programming issues you might have overlooked?

Do you think all companies should cover things that aren't covered under warranty?

You should try to get your car fixed one day after the warranty has ran out. I guess that means you would never buy that brand of car anymore !!!! The day the warranty ends that means the item is not covered anymore !! How is that value hobby's fault???????

Are these the hobbywing opto 80 amps? If so you do know OPTO meants it has no battery elimination circuit (BEC) built in and will not power the RX without a seperate BEC or battery pack right?
