GWS Wheels are GARBAGE!!!

Sheesh!!! why doesnt GWS use different wheels? these have to be the worst wheels ever designed... i was flying my beaver today and successfully did 2 touch-n-go's on the 3rd on a nice easy approach, the wheel snapped... WHAT GARBAGE!!! Mr. Lin i have seen enough people complaining about these wheels im sure you could design a better wheel for $1 more and im sure people would be happy to get nice foam wheels.... PLEASE INCLUDE NICER WHEELS IN YOU KITS!!! you would even put an advertisement on the box as a selling point.. like in the lower left hand corner of the box you could put "NOW WITH IMPROVED WHEELS" and put a little picture of them... im sure people wouldnt mind paying an extra $1-$3 for some nice wheels... thats the only complaint i have with GWS other than the recievers which i think are garbage also.. they are glitchy and make the airplane hicup... it loses signal sometimes and freaks out at random times... so to improve your image fix the reciever problem and for pete sake GET BETTER WHEELS!!!!!!!

yes those are alot better now start putting those wheels in your kits ! put the garbage wheels in the kit also if you want but make sure that the new wheels are in the kit... who cares if the kit is an extra $1 or $2 its well worth it... can you believe the garbage wheels from GWS in the USA are like $2.99 from horizonhobby ?
sheesh !!! $2.99 for a little tiny piece of cheep plastic!!!! grrrrrr

However, you can see many other makers are copying those GWS garbage wheels.

New wheels still fool around some where in GWS production line! I can't expect them to be ready to go with F4U at this time.

Hey folks, let's watch the language and the negativity. One can complain effectively without unpleasantness, cursing or evoking anger. Remember, young people check these boards too. Let's present them with an example that's worthy of the good things this hobby represents.

Have a nice day.

What the?

My gosh MPF your a piece of work. Please go bother your brother or something. Nobody wants to hear your senseless dribble.
If you're freaking out so bad about the wheels don't buy GWS kits! Go scratch out your perfect plane and buy some wheels from Dubro or Dave Brown or?... It seems you have a much bigger problem then some toy plastic wheels. In due time, if Mr. Lin wants to change his wheels he will. A lot of ezoners have put in many different requests for certain changes. And he has made good on many of them. The lack of respect for people won't get you anywhere. Taking cheapshots from your keyboard is one thing. Would you do it to his face if he were standing right in front of you? I doubt it.

Hey Minn, Go drink another gallon of coffee. I've never had those wheels break. Bigger wheels = more weight. Bigger wheels = more drag. Buy the ones you want for the 3 bucks more you want everyone else to pay.

You have been asked by other readers to refrain from using sour language and negativity. Now you are being asked by a moderator. Our R/C Groups forum policies spell out the rules to make this a family friendly comfortable non-confrontational forum. I Thank You in advance for your future consideration.

MinnParkflyer, no offence man, but give Mr. lin a break...

Im sure he's got 10000 things to do with this huge companey, and im sure he dosen't need bad mothing about his products, just like if you owned GWS, would you like somebody trashing you?

IMHO, GWS is one of the best park flyer companies around, there products are supurb and they fly/work realy well, all at awsome prices!

Yes, i agree the wheels break easy, but i find it's more the pilot, i used a set in one of my planes and never hard a problem since i was easy on them, but on the first flight of one of my other GWS palne, i polped her down from about 2 feet and broke the wheel, my point is made.

All im saying is give mr Lin a break, he's a busy guy and has alot to work on, lets keep these comments and negitive feedback down, yes, the weels are bad, but GWS dose not need to listen to yet another person bash the weels, they are working on them...

If you don't have a problem paying an extra 3 bucks, then just but another set at your hobby shop...


Thomas

P.S. PLEASE watch the language you use, this place is veiwed by young kids and the moderators strive to create a friendly comminity. Check the rules if your not sure next time...

I agree, the harsh languauge and abusive nature of your post is not needed. We should be lucky enough to have the CEO of a company make time to answer questions and listen to our suggestions. If you dont like the wheels let him know via amture post using decent language. If I were him id tell you to go away and spend your money on another manufactures planes.


Thank you for your input Mr. Lin


regards

matt
