Please share your experiences. This sounds like the FPV Models debacle all over.
Csgshop aka CSG_EU on this forum has been scamming people for several years. Shady shop, no contact info, everything overpriced, no technical docs posted for things like IMU etc (have to privmsg and you know how that ends up). He also has eBay shop under similar name. When you do get a product from him it comes in s envelope without even a return address. Avoid at all costs.

And no I don't give a flying duck about gimbals brushed or not.

Thanks for the info! Never again. I thought it was OK because the link was on the SimpleBGC website.

Came close to ordering but the locations link made no sense and that put me off ordering from them. Too bad, FPV and CGS looking a bit less good. 18:00, 18:00, 18;00!!!

I think I'm going to hold off until I see what more people have done with the luxury/DIY kits...

Hopefully they'll have enough in the future... and at the same price

Hi all,
I live in Australia and ordered a controller board on February 7t It was shipped on February 11th. And I received it on February 20th.

I was supplied with tracking number, but could not check it, as I did not know, through which postal system it was sent. I did not ask.

But after reading the post on this forum, I decided to look but the tracking information, but it only shows it leaving the country, not the arrival in Australia and finally to me.

Check this site and it may help.
http://www.pasts.lv/en/postal-consignments/track-an-item/

I donít know what their reputation has been in the past, but as this is the first time that I brought from them. The goods were supplied, as ordered, and in a timely fashion.

All I am saying is it worked for meÖ.I have a controller, NOW.

Now the work begins.

Peter.

I placed an order on the 11th of February, I'm yet to receive the item talkless of the shipment's tracking number. I'll give a couple of days more before i make any report.

Excuse me for being stupid, but how do you order from Viacopter? If you click "Add to cart" link (on any product) nothing happens. No products in the cart, it remains empty.

And you can not register, either! There's a text "No account yet? Register" but no link to registration form.

What's up with this shop?

Ah TC Nice to hear from you you again! A man with your talent should develop an interest outside of cheap MR stuff. Nice stuff BTW. As a man who always shoots from the hip. You should have got bored with that limited challenge by now.

I write your tracking number two times for you. I also write this tracking number to your paypal claim! You can check this web page and see what your package shipped
http://www.pasts.lv/lv/uzzinas/meklet_sutijumu.html

in the usps.com you can see this package only after custom checking! It will be 10-20 working days after your orders.
THANKS!

Board ordered the 5 FEB on their web site, received on the 14 Feb in France.

Every thing worked fine for me.

I had several contact with that guy (Alexander) from CSGShop, he was very reactive and listening.

I was really surprise to read your comment.
