Lotus RC T580 Quadcopter

After watching Alishanmao and XJET on Youtube both review the Lotus RC T580 Quadcopter I decided to buy the aircraft. This has proven to very bad decision.
It took LotusRC 5 weeks to deliver the item to me here in Sydney Australia. However, there were no instructions included with the model so I emailed them. Some considerable time later they responded to my email with a word document version of the instructions. So I installed my AR7000 receiver and connected everthing as per the instructions.

Attached my 3s lipo and afetr bindeing the DX7 moved the throttle to about 15%, the vibration was unbelievable. So I email Lotus RC so some help. They did not reply. So I proceeded to balance the 4 props and the the motors. The vibration was reduced but still there.

Anyway, I decided to try a take off and as the model climbed to about 5 feet it suddenly rolled over and hit the earth! BUGGAR! Broke 3 props and two motor shafts. So I emaiedl an order to them for parts. They just ignored the email. So I bring Ali into the loop. He gets in touch with them but they do absolutely nothing. So I now have a very expensive quadcopter frame.

Don't buy anything from LOTUSRC.COM, their products and after sales service are RUBBISH!
