this is why i hate fee bay

Still trying to iron out n get problem fixed. But I recently made a purchase from a user on eBay. It was a beat up Bf109 cause I'm still learning so I didn't want to ruin the new one I got from a user from rcg. Anyway I paid as soon as I realized I won. The ad said plane has good motor, esc, n new servos. Well right after I won I get an email saying that as he was packing the plane he realized that the motor was cracked. N that he could either buy a new one n replace it or cancel transaction. I tell him to just replace the motor n it would b good. This took 2 or 3 emails from me to get any response back to see what he was going to do. 3 days later I get an email saying that he had replaced it n was going to ship. I thought kool. Well wait a week. N it gets here lastnight. N the motor is cracked the esc is burnt up won't even work. I won't put his name on here cause he probably uses this place too. But I will if he doesn't make it right. He took epoxy n tried to fix the motor. Well that did work....

Has nothing to do with eBay...it happens here too. File a complaint & get your money back (or a refund for a new motor).

File a not as described claim and get your money back. He may want to offer you a partial refund, which I probably would take as long as it covered the cost of the ESC and motor.

FWIW, Horizon was replacing the original plastic endcap motors no charge as the failure rate was astronomical. I had mine swapped out and the replacement is still working perfectly.

In his email, he admitted it was damaged and then didn't do as promised. Slam dunk with PayPal protection.

So what does ebay have to do with a bad seller. No one ever see's me complaining about how many people try pulling bids or take there sweet time paying. It is what it is. Ebay has many protections built in as does paypal. Follow the channels, file legitimate complaints and all will be well.

File a complaint through ebaby. I believe you've got a limited time to do so. Don't hesitate with the negative feedback either.
