if you picked it up in person you should have noticed the difference.from a bit of research on the web it appears yhese servos like 6 volts and do not like unregulated lipo packs.alot of sevos chatter at neutral if the tx is too close to the rx on a fuully charged pack.did you try moving the tx away from the plane?

Yes, and they don't just chatter the MOVE ALOT!! I'm just little freaked out and spooked by them, safe bet to just replace.
Good news, got motor started and running, little outta tune, but after getting hot it came in nicely...

a low rx battery or a low output pack will cause them servos to chatter and twitch like crazy i had the same prob some time back and had to go to a better battery and prob solved just a thought .

If you're buying a used plane, you should replace the servos anyway. you have no idea what they've been through.

shenanigans

Viper dont Vipe.

Had the seller posted pics like he said (not stock ad) then there would be proof of good servos. Same too, if buyer better inspected plane he'd notice the subpar servos with metal arms upon pickup.

seems like a compromise can be had if both sides are willing to meet monetarily half-way... of coarse If I had sold an item I would be adamant about exactly what I had sold (pics). Then again if I had bought something falsely advertised Id call shenanigans too.

Also I dont think the statute of limitations is up (so to speak) as soon as you inspect/acquire the item local pickup. The item is not AS-IS if its falsely advertised/issues not reported especially if "never flown" aka zero damage all new. exception being if I play with it and break it before inspecting thoroughly

Update- viper said and I quote," I don't need rcgroups and don't care what the ...... you post! " I have replaced servos, fixed a lot of the cosmetic stuff and almost ready to fly. I know I wasn't as thorough as I should have been and I trusted the seller too much. I learned a valuable lesson... Thanks for all you alls options, viper isn't will to make it right.
To all out there, just cause one guy is a bad seller don't be alarmed, but anyone who wishes to gamble with buying from viper beeee careful .. Good flying to all

here's my version:

Quite honestly, I think viper, like many of us, had the plane for wayyyy too long; sat around for too long and probably didn't remember what was in the plane. To give viper the benefit of the doubt, he Probably remembered 5 turnigy servos when in fact the power HD were in them....dishonest, probably not, careless/sloppy, yes.

Really. I have 35 planes total now. I can probably/maybe remember what servos are in plane# 35 which I just finished building, but I couldn't remember what servos were in plane #5 nor plane# 20. Matter fact, I have misquoted some items in sales and had to go back and correct to buyer later.

All that being said, this wasn't a shipping, but meet in the flesh. Plenty of opportunity for buyer to check out the plane. Heck, if I was going to spend $500, I'd ask to power it up first....

like most folks, it'd be good to meet in the middle somewhere.

good luck to you both.
