Hi,

Has anyone bought a pro design jet direct from proedf? Only i placed an order a while back and heard or seen nothing? i have recently read a few people making orders and never receiving anything....getting slightly concerned as they do not reply to emails.. Anyone?

I read about some others having the same problem with them.
I think they're unreliable and/or bankrupt.
Several of their models are being sold via hobbyking, thats where I got my F-18.
And at a much cheaper price too.

if you can avoid it, do not buy a ProEDF model. they are total junk. search on here and you'll find the info you are looking for. one member purchased the Draaken kit and when it arrived, it was cheaply made from cheap materials, the surfaces were rippled and flimsy, things didn't fit together properly. I've also heard that the guys that purchased the SU-37 didn't get instruction manuals and those that did, got something that was barely legible and wasn't very informative. I think the biggest issue is that they are using inferior materials for their planes. the biggest example of that is using polyester instead of epoxy for their fuselages. over time, polyester will fail.

You are welcome to buy anything you want from ProEDF. Sadly the "expiration date" we all refer to on our aircraft preceedes your order date from ProEDF. I was one of the many who never got a manual for my su37. You have better odds in a darkened back alley in Vegas on a Saturday.

ha ha


Ill just be happy if it turns up.....not convinced that ill ever see it. I did just receive the prodesign f18 myself from hobbyking (yesterday) the nose was smashed up, as was the tail cone, and just behind the cockpit was damaged. Nice looking plane but as mentioned very thin in places. So thats two planes i wont be using......
COME ON PROEDF WHERE IS MY RAFALE!? OR AT LEAST ANSWER ME GOD DAM IT!!

They are still there... I rung and a lady answered.

She couldn't understand what I was trying to say, and gave me a number to ring for the "sales manager". That number goes to a fax line however...

I'll try another email before I do a paypal refund.

Funny too if you watch their videos on their websites closely near the end of all of them it shows them crashing it. Especially the su37 they were trying to sell, beautiful bird but it didn't fly

You can lodge a "dispute" in the paypal menu once you log in. If they don't reply to paypal you get your money back after a period of time.

Can anyone here speak Chinese?

If so it would be great if we could get a list of our order numbers and get someone to give them a ring and ask what is going on.

My numbers are 1411 and 1412.

OK, my order is 1415, seems that you guys bought your stuff right before me.
thanks for the phone, but does this guy actually speak english??

if not, we will need a translator to give "jack" a call.

Please keep us posted if anyone gets a tracking number

After a PayPal dispute, Jack responded that the items were shipped.

It was a no-show.

Dispute escalated to a claim. Got my refund through PayPal surprisingly very quickly.
