Dan McCleary is verrrry slow to ship and refund money

If you are looking for a wing don't buy from this guy.
http://www.xg-extremegliders.com/Ext...ess/?page_id=2.

He was supposed to send me a kit and after about two weeks I asked for a refund. After another week or so I received a kit that was screwed up when they cut it. He sent a note that said here is a flawed kit, build it. There was also a check for a partial refund. Well now the check has bounced so I'm out that $50 plus another $12 in fees.

The results of your single transaction do not warrant the public message that someone is a scammer. Sounds to me like they attempted to make right by a partial refund and are not in the best of financial situations if their checks are bouncing. You could have made attempts to resolve this offline.

Ya I received a flawed kit as well. He told me in person and gave me a break on my kit. It added a whopping 30 seconds to my sanding time to fix the slight wave in the foam. It looks like the wire got hung up on some garbage in the foam. I am going to give him the money he took off my kit when I see him next. All foam (epp) should be sanded to a fuzz before covering anyways or did you not know this? As far as your 2 week delay get over yourself its only a toy airplane. I spent a couple hundred on a glider and am now 2 weeks over promised delivery and it is coming from a real shop, not a guy busting his balls after his day job.

+1

I've always had a great experience dealing with Dan. I'd give him a call and work things out.
