No, it's a scam. RC4Y is a scam.

Wrong. RC4Y used to have sketchy reputation (and still do) but they are legit. If something goes wrong with your order like the package gets lost, file a paypal claim and you should be fine. Their customer support is awful (at least thats what I've heard) so just pray that everthing goes fine. Again, PayPal is your friend, always use it when buying from them.
The GoPro they are selling comes without any accessories. No case, no battery, nothing but the cam. Seems like a decent deal if you are willing to buy the other stuff separately.

Free battery on the Silver ed.
But very likely no serial number...based on the recent black threads. so little/no GoPro support.

No. You are the wrong one. They are certainly not a legitimate business by
any means. Do you even know how they got started? They hacked BEVRC's
website, stole their email list, and created a duplicate website that was an
identical copy of BEVRC's. They were so lazy that the pictures of the
products they were selling were still watermarked with the BEVRC logo! Not
only that, but in the skyhunter thread neither the original product
manufacturer or the reseller of the plane knows who RC4Y is or how they
could have gotten their planes in stock since they never sent any to them or
even heard of them before. They are a scam plain and simple, if you send
money to them you deserve to have it stolen for being so daft.

His Gopros are real. You DO NOT need a serial to update your GOPROS.

Yeah I agree. Actually when I work it out because your only getting the camera and battery it works out cheaper to buy the standard 200 and get the extras you dont get with this.

Gopro do not ship their products like that... all piled in a box together.

it is either a bunch of rejects, copies, stolen or a few extras made by the subcontractors!!


You may be lucky and get a bargain, or loose all your money. Anything with rc4y is a gamble...

sir , i am the rc4y . all the guys purchase the FPV items through paypal , if we get money and not send the items . paypal will back the money directly to u , we can not make any cheats. u say , we copy the others websites , we really copy some pictures from bevrc at the begining , sorry to u . but from 2011, they all ourselves pictures.

about the skyhunter , how many u want , we can send u . we have a lots of stock . by the way , skyhunter is not belong to skywalker , its a new company s products.

at the end , i just check our order , u never order anything on rc4y , so , how do u make the conclusion that we are cheater . do u have any evidence to proof your opinion .
we can supply u all high quality goods and nice price , do u think that's our mistake ?

I haven't seen any recent complaints about rc4y. For all of those who actually want to see proof that he is delivering stuff, http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...2#post23782056
There is a tracking number for the GoPro black edition
