What about the Dynam Meteor?

I was looking at it, almost pulled the trigger... my wife bought me the Habu 2 airframe for a b-day present... never look a gift horse, etc... I ordered some cool garphics for the underside of it from Callie based on this Jetbrett. Mine will be black instead of silver.

I'm close to open a dispute through paypal and order the items from somewere else, as the items were available at the time I ordered them.
There is absolutely no communication from wemotec, and that's the worst thing.

Never dealt with them - and this is not a good thing for them. I find that manufacturers typically do not like dealing with customer service - why they have distributors like hobby shops and etc who take the responsibility.

If that is the case, why do they have an online store?
I bought from them thinking things would be smoother if buying directly from the source.

I hear you - whether we like it or not it's the nature of the business. Customer service is not typically a strength of manufacturers. I have bought direct from Align as well and experienced no communication like you are experiencing. Try getting a refund from a factory sourced item - bought direct! It will not happen smoothly and will take days!

Jetfan seems to be an exception, as I only read good things about them.
Too bad they don't make a 70mm fan.

I kind of figured that was an issue after seeing The Don's trouble and Efflux's stock being erratic. I took the chance on Turbines-RC, but I'm sure I could have had the same problems, because it seems to be related to the factory. A shame because they seem to be in high demand here in the US.

Got a chance to finally try mine out with the 5s instead of 4s that I'd asked some of you guys about earlier in this thread. Wasn't able to get any video as I had no photographer with me, but it definitely livened it up! I still hate those poles on the right in the pic there, they're the ones that ate my stinger 90....lol
