Buying a Mini CP, advice on a online shop :)

Hello all,

Id appreciate your help on this one. I have found a website selling the Mini CP with a Devo8s at a really good price. They are a chinese online shop called Banggood lol.


ANyone had experience with these. Its nearly $65 cheaper then helipal.

I have never heard of this company before. Its a lot of money too. Some advice please be welcome. Is this as good as it looks

Thank you

Banggood are OK to deal with.
I've bought from them twice.
Slow shipping via China post (Flytexpress) but it always arrived.
Miracle mart are worth looking at too as they will price match and ship via HK post which is significantly faster in my experience.

Banggood seems to be reliable enough. One of it's representatives is a member here (AaronQin) if I remember well , so it's even easier to contact them or report problems. Check the Helios 100 and V911 thread for more information about Banggood to get a better impression.

Most folks here bought lower end products (V911, V929, V939, Helios 100, etc) from BG. But so far the feedback is generally ok. There may be flaws with the product and it may not be unfair for BG to request customers to ship the faulty product back for replacement.

However, for cheap stuff, it is not economical to ship them back to China. So there have been complaints about receiving faulty products and they get no replacement (or full refunds). If you're buying an expensive product, at the very worst, (touch wood!) you have to ship the faulty product for them to examine. But this is actually the normal practice for many similar online shops.

miracle-mart gets my vote, best class customer support so far.
They will patiently advice your purchase, even at one time they suggest I don't buy the items because they think it's not suitable for me... When I was a beginner, it helped a lot...
I've heard banggood delivers, but never heard anything about their customer support...
