Careful!
RC Kites (the Fakes) on eBay??!!!

http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/Ready-To-Fly-...QQcmdZViewItem

Warning!!!...if the company that fakes and imitated these RC kites is selling cheap and good kites, why is this China manufacturer using (or rather stealing is the right word) the original video clips and footages of the actual company from Singapore and put onto their own China website?

Original RC Kites from www.goflykite.com or www.rckites.com

all the chinese products look like ripoffs of the IFO http://www.wildrc.com/

you have a lot of nerve calling that other company's product a fake and an imitation, then call your version the original. This thread is inappropriate!

Try using IFOs to do such moves... come on, show us what you can do with IFOs...newer designs and improvements have been made...by this company called GFK. I am not a flyer of these RC kites yet...but has been doing research on the net. Found many interesting background to these kites...

A vast majority of companies in China, Singapore and HongKing copy products that started somewhere else. Pretty much if there's a chance of making a dime on something that is a success for someone else they are going to copy it. It's been done for so long and it won't stop anytime soon. (Miss Hangar One)

In this thread the eBay item looks like a copy of the wildrc product for sure. I didn't see where the eBay kite looked like the goflykite kites. There is similaries to the basic kit but the goflykite kits are much different from the original IFO.

I don't see why this person started this thread unless they are the same ones selling the kite on eBay. Looks like an attempt to drumb up a little business and sales. If you want to advertize on RCGroups, do it like everyone else. BUY AN ADD BANNER.

I have a genuine product but these are loaded with quality issues, no warranty and poor service. I would consider a fake product if they were cheap enough.
