That's really unacceptable. Hope you took the issue up with your CC company or paypal. I had a missing tailwheel and the guy sent it to me but it took a while. Incredible.

If You can't get General Hobby to give it up, try MotionRC. They carry the Freewing B17 cowlings(in sliver)

Order never received from General Hobby

I ordered an ASW 28 from General Hobby on August 30th, paid immediately with PayPal. Glider has never arrived, tracking number from GH through UPS shows the package delivered in Omaha Nebraska, I live in TEXAS! Multiple emails no response, multiple phone messages no response. Looks like I have to start a PayPal resolution claim. Bummer

Well I ordered mine last Friday and never seen any updates outside of the "transmitted and picked up" then today around 12:30pm - BING! I got an update that my package has hit my area so I am happy to see this.. So far so good with GH..if this package gets here in one piece and ready for assembly then I am happy as a pig in mud. :-)

We will see with General Hobby

After a week of ignoring my emails and phone calls I gave up and started a complaint with PAYPAL on Saturday the 20th, and surprise, today I get an email from GH saying they have sent my glider to correct address, shipping today. They have provided a tracking# which so far is not active. We shall see. Still disappointed that there is no real customer service, just reaction to the fear of paying higher PAYPAL fees.
