Has anyone come up with a comparable quad that parts can be found for? Has anyone had any success in contacting RCcarMax for parts?

I was thinking i'd go with one of these from goodluckbuy that i've seen recommended in another thread for a first build combined with these motors.

If they work with the stock T380 motors then great, otherwise i'll pick up some new motors too.

**links not currently working, but I assume they will when their website comes back up.


Worth noting that changing to a different ESC would also require a different FC (although there may be a way of making a new ESC work with the FC)

Fixed my problem

Post crash issue.

Developed a mind of its own after about 2 mins flight time.

Noticed motor 3 very hot--replaced it-problem gone.Top bearing knackered.

Good service from rccarmax

Prior poster said topbearings usually go-I agree.

Regards

Roger

I too wound up with a Rotor Concept show special back in January.

It's fun to fly...when it flies.

I have tossed money at this thing starting with making the serious error of spending more than 20 bucks through Rotor Concept just for a lousy prop nut. I cancelled an order for new motor endbells which were four times the cost of getting them through Goodluckbuy. Sadly, I'd managed to pull the shafts partially out of the endbells because of some replacement props which wouldn't snug down...and those shafts were not going to go back in without some sort of press.

A few months ago, I blogged about how the ESC failed when some IC chips actually fell out of it. Bought a new one from Goodluckbuy which was poorly packaged and arrived in non-working condition. Took some time to get my money back; reasoning with them is pretty much impossible to boot.

So, after myriad propellers, an upgrade to a Spektrum receiver and new motor endbells, the thing is sitting unused and inoperative in my closet. I found a Chinese source for a new ESC on eBay, one with a good feedback rating.

I'll likely treat myself after Christmas, but not with an order from Rotor Concept even if they're going to be at the AMA expo...which I doubt. I wrote the AMA telling of my experiences with them and the bad experiences of others. I don't think they'll be back next month.

Good question. I generally go with a group from the local club and I think we went on Saturday this past year. I haven't heard from anyone yet regarding a carpool, though.
