raidentech.com sales and linearalgebra ebay warning

Hi everyone,

Just a warning for anyone considering buying some cheap GWS servos over ebay - I know lots of the slope guys like light servos, so figure I should post this here.

A few months back I bought some servos over ebay from someone called "Wu" with the email address linearalgebra@mindspring.com and the ebay alias of linearalgebra. They also sell online at raidentech.com

The servos were advertised as GWS 18g servos.

The package I received was supposed to have 12 servos the same - 18g, with a size 28.4 x
13.2 x 35.1mm.

However, there were two different sizes in the servos I received:

a) 3 servos the correct size - 18g, 28.4 x 13.2 x 35.1 mm
b) 9 servos that are too big - 19g, 28.6 x 13.4 x 40.2 mm

I had built a fuse to suit the servo size as specified, and so the big ones were unusable. As the package was sent internationally, it would cost a lot to send it back, so I emailed "Wu" to find out what was going on, and what we could do about it. I have emailed 5 times, and have not received a reply.

I'm stuck with the servos that are too big, and I've found a use for them - however, I don't think the service I received was good enough.

So be warned :-)

Matt

Stay Away

Stay away from raidentech and xheli. Think managment is same.
They are a pain in the neck when it comes to returns. They'll even
claim the item is missing and they never got it.

OH Sammy,

I think a necromancer just absconded with your innocence.
