Some places imply the V202 is an enhanced V939 or a Mini-Pet competitor or Hubsan x4. Oddly, it's not on the WlModels website::

I was really upset that I missed on this deal because I was going order the day it went back to the normal price. Apparently I didn't miss much.

So did I. My reply:

"Rebecca,
I do not understand. When I purchased that item it stated that it was 50% off when I purchased it at 9 pm EST yesterday and several of us purchased it with the 50% on your site (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1780743.) Can you please tell me at what time the sale ended? You have built up such a good reputation on RC Groups I am really surprised at this.

Thank you,
Jim"

I don't even believe this was a mistake. They had a giant picture on the website saying "51% off", or something like that, so it's not like the price was just a typo. Then to have the nerve to ask for an extra $10....really rubs me the wrong way. It seems more like a scam than an honest mistake.

I also feel that they are obligated to sell it to your for the price that they advertised it for. If they are not making money/losing a bit, its their own mistake and the customer shouldn't be held responsible.

Posted in the Banggood coupon thread, http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...19418&page=11:

"Aaron, what happened with the sale on the V202? We are getting emails about the price being incorrect and that we need to send an additional $10. On the item page the price I paid matched the sale percentage shown from the list price posted- 50% in a red circle from $53.75 = $26.68.

"1 x WLtoys V202 Beetle 2.4G 4 Channel 4-Axis Quadcopter Dexterous Mini UFO RTF (SKU044638) US$26.68"

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1780743"

I thought they were trying to get us hooked on quads, sort of a sample. It would be quite a while before I tried one or a new vendor if the price hadn't been so low.

It's good to see they have a rep here on the forums. At least we might get some sort of explanation. I can't even imagine what it would be though.

I can totally understand if they were out of stock, or a delayed shipment, or just flat out offered a refund (which they did offer)...but to ask for an extra $10? I've never even heard of a reputable company doing that. They can't possibly think that would go over well.

Ya I got the same email. Very shady. I am not paying another $10. Makes me think twice about spending money at banggood.

Guys it was a mistake, it happens. I don't expect a rock bottom retailer to take a hit on a mistake. Yeah it's kinda sour but it is what it is. I wouldn't however pay the extra, just take the refunds.

It looks like they sold about 30 or so before changing the price back up. Dosnt' seem like a big deal to keep the good will of the community. If it was listed at $4.23 and several hundred people had ordered, I could understand. But Selling something for half price is not at all unheard of for these resellers.

I haven't got that email yet.. we will see what happened.

Actually, I though that the price was so low because they were not selling any of these v202-there isn't so much information on the internet. A coupple of good reviews in the site or in the forum should boost the sales on this item, which could finally lead to a good investment. As it's an improved version of the V939, maybe the V939 owners would buy this quad to try the new version, if it has any review.

Well, we will see what happens next.
