Yeah, but maybe you wanted blades rather than baldes!

Just my opinion but I would recommend avoiding any clone vctrc products. I recently bought 3x ds610 cyclic servos for a 600 heli on ebay;

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/251105979...84.m1497.l2649

I ended up getting 2x ds610 servos plus one of their clone tail servos. Ended up paying another $25 to get another ds610 servo (= scam ?). Once I installed the servos one of the ds610's operated intermitantly. I took this apart and found that the gearsets were very rough and there was very little gear lube.

I've scraped all these servos and will probably only be able to salvage servo arms and mounting accessories.

Lesson learnt, you get what you pay for imho!

Cheers,
TomC

Wow...sorry to hear Tom. Did you contact the seller directly in regards to your defective products.?

Regarding the "scam," I would bring that issue up with the eBay seller and not the manufacturer.

As for the problem with the servo, well, that's a given considering it's a knock-off. That doesn't necessarily mean they're bad. I think most people here will agree that knock-off's are more prone to less than stellar quality control, but when you get around the issues, which are often easy enough to fix, they're just as good as if not better than the name brand servos.

Take for example the Solar line of digital metal gear servos. It's obvious they saved some cash by skimping on the rubber grommets and properly securing the internals to the case, but once you get past those two issues, the servos are rock solid.

As you said, you get what you pay for and will need to pay the difference on way or another, whether that be by just paying for the name brand servo or by going in and fixing any problems in the knock-off product.

What sucks is when you pay the premium and then get a shoddy product. Then what do you say? Buy three servos and get one that dies mysteriously. Now is that brand all of a sudden shoddy? No, you just lucked out and got a bad item despite the higher level of QC that we're assuming you're getting from the name brand product.

I've bought a LOT of knock-off's from China, and while it can be hit or miss, when it's a hit, it's a solid hit--low cost and as good as if not better than the premium. Nonetheless, I'm sorry you got shafted on your purchase.

I tend to agree with, mrmarc. I buy lots of clone stuff just to test it, and yes it's really annoying when you get a dud, but it doesn't actually happen that often. I was quite surprised I got a faulty TGY-211DMH the other day out of the 3 I bought. The servos look very high quality and use quality components. It turned out to be a single bad solder joint that let it down. I'm very pleased with the servos now and they have flown quite a few flights, with no other issues.

VCTRC 3GX, couldn't be better. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more of these. Excellent quality right down to the servo leads.

If I hadn't just purchased my 700DFC, I'd have been very tempted to get the VCTRC 550DFC combo, just to see how good all of the component were. It certainly looks like it flies well with all of the stock components in the videos ridge_racer posted a link to, and the 550E is a nice size heli, that doesn't require overly expensive batteries.

I think the CX approach to firmware updates may be enough to put a lot of buyers off, but they've definitely lowered the bar as far as the price is concerned! I suspect Assan will bring out their version too.

Hey I give them credit. They are the first to market theirs and not say it works with s-bus and sats. Bob smith, that's funny and reminds me of another Bob that use to sell his stuff on here. Now he just invades the helifreaks with r2i what ever stuff
