Beware Of Revolution Hobbies
This post is a warning to all RC Group members regarding Revolution Hobbies.
A fellow club member and I placed an order for a kit offered on this sellers web site. After waiting about three weeks we both contacted the owner of Revolution Hobbies, Alan Baker to find out why our kit had not been delivered. It seems that orders for the kits were never placed with the kit maker.
Efforts to secure a refund have not been responded to. Phone calls have not been returned. Mr. Baker lists items from Bowman Hobbies on his site yet has never ordered anything from this supplier to support his claim of being able to deliver these items. Another kit maker which Baker lists on his site will not ship him goods.
A formal complaint has been filed with the FBI's internet fraud unit and an investigation is in process. Litigation for fraud is likely. If you have had similar experiences with this individual I would like to hear from you.
I do realize that some members of this group have had positive experiences in dealing with this individual, however, for others that has not been the case. I would think you are the lucky ones.

I bought a Golden Oriole from Revolution Hobbies via EBay. Im happy with my purchase, it arrived as advertised in 5-7 days and flies nicely.
HOWEVER when I did suspect a problem with the motor I emailed them asking about a replacement. I was told Id first need to ship the $20AUD motor back to Hong Kong for them to verify it was faulty and then Id pay for postage to get a new one to me. I told them where Id stick the motor if it fails, in the ocean.

Man, I wish you luck. There's no excuse for this kind of behavior. Here's another thread in the same vein.
