Morning fellas,

heres the latest response from EHIROBO --- they must be gettin some email about this lol as I was asked to pass the parts part on to you guys :0) So here goes. It turns out the wholelanguage thing is a factor as they say CopterX doesnt understand english.

My email:

> and that guy payed $100+USD to have a custom shaft made. Seems unreasonable as the heli was $99 :0) I am in no way trying to sound mean or irate with you -- I am just trying to get ot the bottom of this whole mess. We cant even sell em to recoup some as they don't work :0(

and their response again:

Hi Markus,

We are really sorry about that. We are informed the parts for the CopterX would be released around the end of March.
For compensation, we would sincerely offer 10% off discount to your order.
And we are really sorry that we are not able to offer the direct contact method to CopterX to you, since actually they are not able to handle the communication in English. We hope you could understand our difficult situation.
Thank you very much for your email. If possible, we hope you could help us inform the CopterX 200 players about the estimated arrival date of the CopterX 200 parts. Thank you.

Best Regards,
Leo Chan

Well make of it what you will. 10% off hmmmm so Im gonna get $15 off $150 or $20 off $200 order, lmao sorry Im not getting into that. Fix my bird with the right parts and Im done with Ehirobo wether its their fault or Copterx's. 10% off what a joke -- I clearly stated I didnt want any deals or reductions, I just it resolved. :0)
As a reseller of copterx products they should have done more homework, and as copter x -- they lost my purchase of a x450 now because of this. So if their going to give me 10% off so shouldnt everyone else :0) so please feel free to include the email as a reference to those having problems and to those who are wanting to buy it ---- DONT DO IT-- wait, or Buy LotaFunR's :0)

Have a good one fellas,
Markus


Mahbouni:
I appreciate the legwork on the cnc motor and it sounds good. Now the question is will it work on the x200. Your symptons are exactly as I experienced with the x and that motor. Fine one day and toast the next. I know the esc that came withit wasnt going to work -- lol I wanted it for a plane anyhow. Time will tell. To be honest I'm so upset about the trashy heli I may save some of it for parts. I wouldnt even sell it to anyone. I did buy an extra tail assembly that may look nice on different project :0)

Have a good day fellas,

Markus

Above is my email response from copter X (previously posted). Would sugest sending emails to them directly. From the response to me they seem to at least be able to write english. They dodged most of the problem issue though!

I agree totally. To ehirobo I got the big ridiculas no answer email , that was my second email with them about this. Emails can be sent -- it has already become mainstream the problems with this heli. My major deal is never once in any emails to anyone have they mentioned protecting those that already bought it, or what they intend to do about it with those of us that have it inhand. Were actually up creek, without doing major mods and $100's of dollors to a $99 heli it wont hold up. I would never in its current state fly it around people not knowing how sure of it I am :0) Lots could happen. Which brings us to time again and no mention of any projected time -- anything week, month, 3 months etc.... not even a rep on this thread or board trying to help out or stay in contact with us. (not: electronhobby :0) - who is going the extra mile ).

I will wait and see what Jermiah comes up with and stand behind what he comes up with. If not prolly spend the money and have a shaft made once and for all.

JUST BAD BUSINESS

Different Head

Another potential direction would be going with a different head. I know the HDX300 head has a ton of problems. Dont know if they ever fixed them.

Does anyone know of a CNC head that is designed for a 3mm or 4mm shaft that works.

Regards

I've been considering this BCPPro head from MicroHeli for my Wasp V3. It will fit a 3mm shaft and has some good reviews. my main concern is being able to get the full pitch range with the possibly possbly different main shaft length. IT's a lot of money to gamble with. If anyone here has a BCP that they can try swapping the head over to the CX200 then we'd all have an idea if it would work or not.

The pink motor still works after another 3 packs today. Temperature was still cold but lipo packs quite warm.

that is a costly trial lol 137.99

What about this idea -- the blade cp pro guys were swapping the stock shafts for a Century one, and gear but the shaft specks should be the same right ?

Heres a link:

Good news on the pinky -- I do think it is a great little motor -- it was my fault -- amp hungry you say tho hu -- my lipos did get kinda warm :0)

yeah, that's why I haven't bought it. If I knew 100% it would work then I'd go for it but I don't want to end up with a $137.99 paper weight. Unfortunately the service at MicroHeli seems poor. They never replied to the emails I sent asking them about it.

I just sent the following email to ehirobo:

Leo,

I have been following the discussion threads about the CX200 helicopter on RC Groups. From the experiences of other owners it is clear that this helicopter has a lot of problems, which need to be addressed. I believe it is not a finished product and is not fit for sale.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=799707

I will not accept delivery of this order until I know the problems have been fixed. I would like to know if and when you will be receiving new updated versions of the CX200 with the problems fixed. If you expect the new version soon then I will wait but if there is no new version then I will cancel the order for full refund.
