Good grief.

Sorry to see this Mo.

Where is this ding-dong from? Perhaps an unfriendly visit is in order.

Its not a total loss, I have an AM TX from my old space scooter (RIP) I also have other planes etc. I just skipped this one in my learning and I have always liked it, I wanted to make it into a pretty much sealed fly so I can fly it on the wet mornings and or light rain. I fixed the stab with the hot water trick its better still a tad off, I pulled the chunk of glue out of the nose and reran all the push rods and RX ant. It actually flew pretty good with a few right rudder clicks of trim. I also got it to use to teach some neighbors that want to learn how to fly.

I just DON'T want others to get burned on here, this is my first bad deal on here, many happy ones.

Sorry to hear about the crap deal you got, i've been fortunate and everything i've bought off here is exactly as described...Just keep doing what your doing, karma has a way of working out everything in the end.

Mo,

sorry to hear about this one. I quess there's lots to be learned here. I can't tell you how many deals I passed on because the seller had little or no trader ratings, or that their ad was suspiciously vague or non-descript. I always ask for detailed description of the condition of the item before I commit to buying, and I have lost out on some deals because of this but at least I haven't been screwed! On these message boards, I will ONLY use PayPal for purchases (and will fund by credit card if I'm very unsure of the transaction) because you at least have some recourse as opposed to practically none if you send a money order.

I've actually been cursed at by sellers when I insisted on detailed info about their items. I don't care, because the way I see it, I want to get their description memorialized in writing before I submit funds. In the event they have lied or screwed me over, I have plenty of evidence to use against them when I pursue them.

I have often passed up seemingly great deals simply because I didn't have a good feeling about the seller or their lack of feedback. Better safe than sorry when you're dealing with total strangers accross the internet buying merchandise sight-unseen.

Anyways, hope the state of Washington is treating you well!
