Freewing B-17

I purchased a Freewing B-17 from General Hobby. it arrived with a bad motor and esc. I returned the bad parts as requested and over a month ago. Now I can't get Richard Yan to send me replacement parts.
The problem is I returned the whole nacelle with the motor in it because I didn't want to mess up the paint job removing the glued on cowling.

So does anyone have a Left Inboard nacelle so I can build this thing?

Thanks, Walter

The esc are in the pic because one smoked when I plugged it in. He's got that too!

But I do not recommend you buy from him!

I think he purposely stung me along so now I have no recourse. Of coarse when I do here from him he is always working on it or it's in the mail. And then it never comes. And he won't respond for while.
Extremely frustrating.

I would had been better off if he told me to FXXX off from the beginning.

Best of Luck

Sorry you have had difficulty. Sure hope you are able to get the problem rectified. Great looking aircraft. Thanks for letting the rest of us know about a vendor who does not back up their product. It might save someone else a hassle. All the best in RC to you. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ->---)-
