OK.. Nerdbot 2 is 95% complete.

Tarot 680 frame, HoverFly Pro FC, iPower 750 KV motors, with Hobbywing Platinum 40amp ESC's, Quadframe.us 215mm landing gear fitted with a Photohigher AV-130 2 axis gimbal.

I added quite a few custom frame modifications and the machine will be flying on a 4 cell on 12/45 or 3 cell on 13/38 props.

Just going to go over everything, and get him in the air!

I may take off the top mounted battery tray and run them under the frame. Just want to see how it handles as it.

The ebay seller is full of ****. My guess is never asked Tarot about the clips because everyone knows the clips break as soon as they are used.

I think Zhang is a scam.

I've talked with him on facebook. Not considering strange the fact he's on facebook (
FB is blocked in China ), the behavior is more strange.
When I asked him for free replacement, mentionning is own post here, then he disapeared without answers.

Don't buy this Tarot Frame! They won't replace your clips for free ( I'm pretty sure of that ).

Finally could talk with GoodLuckBuy guys, and they confirm too this guy is a fake. They never heard of him and when contacted Tarot nobody seems aware of such clip replacements.

I'm lucky I had the first version with carbon orgy, so I will keep the frame & modify it, but for those who received fake carbon ones, you definitively should ask for repayment.

I was told that Tarot said the clips were fine, they obviously have not been on this thread !

So denying he works for them is all well and good, but no mention of them accepting the clips are flawed and it seems they have absolutely no intention of doing anything about them.

If they are not going to fix defective clips then Ill be swapping mine if they break to fixed aluminum ones then not recommending the frame to anyone.

Well that is certainly bad news.

If Tarot will not stand behind their product they are crooks and it is time to get the word out in every Tarot thread so others are not cheated.


Plus if Zhang is a scammer Rcgroups admin needs to be warned.

First you have to confirm that the ones with clip problem is a Tarot frame, and not a copy.. It all fit's nicely into the whole deal about some frames being 100% CF and others not. So the first step would be to check if the ones with clip problems is the CF or GF "version", and then take it from there..

I warned about him a few pages back.
He claims to be the brother of the owner of Tarot. But with no official email, his paypal account is also not the official tarot one.
And the worst of all. He lied multiple times about the new products and the whole clamp replacement procedure.
Tarot distributes to stores, and doesn't sell to individuals.
If he asks you to pay for anything, do it at your own risk.
As for the clamp situation, I have received my Tarot with extra boom clamps, which are on the photo.
They do not seem to be different than the ones on the frame, just a different color.

Agreed, mines the full carbon and so far nothing broken, but I`ve not been out in the cold with it yet
