Banggood only accept great reviews , as I found out recently .
So do your research elsewhere to find the truth.

Did they reject a bad review you performed ? For which item ?

How long have you waited for your review to appear? Normally, reviews appearing within 24 hours, but sometimes it takes up to 2-3 days for them to pass through moderation.

My review is "don't use them". I ordered a V120D02S from them, and it was broken out of the box, wasn't assembled correctly and the tail rotor wouldn't spin at all. They wouldn't make it good, and I had to order parts and fix a brand new heli. I'll never order from them again, it also took about 6 weeks to get the order.

Yes I understand you are upset .... I would be in your case. I orderered > 30 orders. I got only parcel with damaged item. They resended it in express shipping... Average shipping is 15-17 days for me

That,s a shame. I have bought two V120do2s, and a Genius V2 in the past 6 months. All three flew perfectly out of the box. I believe they pre-flight test them. Maybe not in your case it could have been a drop ship from some low end thrid party location.Mine smelled factory fresh, dropped shipped direct from the factory.. Yours may been a Friday night special-Lemon! Post such as yours would not deter many from making more BG purchases, but it is a good reminder whenever we make a purchase, stuff happens, and because this is not your local Walmart, returns can be a PITA! The past two years I never had a hiccup from BG. I always have about $50 bucks in parts, and occasion birds in shipment. For me it takes about 3 weeks. All have worked out of the box. Did you bird have a BG sticker applied inside the canopy. Typically these stickers show they been checked and flight tested. Someone dropped the ball. I would not make a review, I would write them emails.

There are many reasons why a Chinese dropshipper like BG rejects a product review. The review should be objective and unbiased. It does not do justice to a product if it is generally ok, but the bad (i.e. "unfair") review makes it seem like a total pile of crap. I could give an negative but objective review, or I could get personal and lash out at BG in full caps. Nobody would find the latter review useful. That said, we don't know what was submitted to BG.


I strongly believe BG does not check and test fly your helis, quads, and planes. It's not their policy to do that. I wouldn't want someone who has absolutely no idea of how to fly an RC toy to test my heli.

Someone must test, as there is no way a complex collective bird like a V120 is going to fly perfect out of box after a general assembly. The little quads, and helis that ship direct from BG with the sticker are probably semi flight tested, at least bound and hovered to assure no DOA shipments. They claim they do.

If you think the warehouse laborers over at BG know a thing or two about complex collective pitch helicopters, you are wrong. These folks are the same people who packs tablets and phones, fancy apparels, and sex toys. Unlike MyRCMart, BG does not specializes in RC toys nor hobby-grade RC models. Perhaps they could handle a coaxial but from my personal friends at BG, I know they do not have the skills to handle a CP heli. They also do not have the time to do that, and it is not part of their job to do so.

They do not claim they do any form of RC toy testing. Please enlighten where you read this.

You claim there is no way a V120 is going to fly perfect out of the box. That means that either Walkera has tested it prior to packing, or some "RC hobby specialist" over at BG or whichever dropshipping company has leveled the swashplate, adjusted the linkage rods, fine tuned the tail gyro gain, to make the V120 a perfect bird out of the box. Sadly, nobody over at BG is has the skills to do that.

I'll give delivery times. I don't need to give my opinion.

I've had 5 orders from banggood. Delivery days are as follows:
19, 40, 8, 11, never arrived

As you can see, if you order from banggood, you can't predict when you'll get your order. Paypal gives you 45 days to dispute your order. I believe banggood sometimes ships by sea, and if they do, your order will take a very long time.

I avoid banggood like the plague.

I had to check the dictionary to confirm my understanding the definitions of "my" and "opinion".

Would you order from someone where you have no idea about when your order will arrive, if your order will arrive? I can't, so I will avoid ordering from them. It ain't an opinion, it's a reaction.

Well I guess the heli-gnomes make sure they fly perfect out of the box

Plain and simple Bang good is fine. Sorry about broken bird but there are options to resolve this. I bought a Ladybird bnf V1 from T-mart that dies on sixth flight. Took months to get replacement but it did get resolved.

It's quite common for most vendors to "filter" reviews. I can't tell you how many crap heli models I've seen get great reviews. Beginners always get suckered that way.
