bad motor?

Hey, a motor i got from your ebay store doesn't work. When i throttle up the motor just jerks back and forth, what does that mean?

Im using a 3cell battery with a mystery 30amp esc from hobbyking.
I was going to use this motor as an upgrade for my axn floater jet.
The stock floater jet motor works with that esc fine. I also tried the rctimer motor with a different esc but still just shakes and doesn't spin .

Possibly a break in your soldering , they usually tick tock when one of the connections is broken , check your bullet connectors.

Just soldered new bullets on and bam . The old connectors had resin all over them, must have used the wrong solder.

Order partially unfulfilled

On September 16th I placed a high value order (20110916030008) with RC Timer, the total value being $476. This order comprised BL motors, ESCs, props, silicon wire and extension leads.

Yesterday the package arrived but it did not contain any silicon wire or extension leads. This amounts to approximately $130 of merchandise - paid for by me - but not included in the package. Furthermore the package was not damaged or even opened by customs. This means RC Timer did not fulfill my order!

Yesterday I sent a message to RC Timer via their website and to date have not received courtesy of response or acknowledgement. I provided them the local tracking number so they can independently inquire to SA customs whether the package was damaged (assuming they do not believe me).

They most likely sent the rest of your stuff in another shipment.
Or it was a major stuff-up.

I placed order: 20110827140019.

In that order there was a Heavy Duty JR On/Off Switch, http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...8&productname= which the charger port didn't work on when I got it. I opened it up and found a bad connection and fixed it.

However I also ordered a bettery meter, http://www.rctimer.com/index.php?gOo...6&productname= and when I use it there is a big problem, it is horribly inaccurate.

Here are my test results.

The voltage checker is so inaccurate that it might as well be junk. I compared it's readings to that of other devices I own on one battery pack.

Mega Power Charger:
Cell 1: 3.85
Cell 2: 3.86
Cell 3: 3.85

Hobby King Quatro:
Cell 1: 3.85
Cell 2: 3.85
Cell 3: 3.84

RC Timer Volt Reader:
Cell 1: 3.82
Cell 2: 3.89
Cell 3: 3.84

As you can see, it is bad, junk, just not worth the money.

Hman you are right, they emailed me with details of the second package, however, it would have helped for them to have sent it to me first out.

Here is the link to my reply:

Is the RCTimer site not taking orders from just me? I can't register or get an order to complete. Seems to have been this way for several days now. Has anyone actually been able to order anything in the last few days?

Hey rctimer,

I have been sending you emails and messages from my account page in your website but not a single reply from your side.
You replied to all my emails before i made the payment, after I paid you by PayPal you're totally ignoring me.
The reason we pay you top$ for dhl shipping is so we can have the product fast with us. But inspite of the payment you don't even respond to our mails updating about our order neither do you ship and give me the tracking number.
My order number is 20140319230142, ordered on the 19th March 2014 and ever since then you have not replied to any emails or messages.
Please update me on my order .

Regards,
Adarsh
