Thread OP

Go Away! Nothing to see here... (Super Secret Thread)

Fine, don't listen to me...
I told you to stay away but you're a curious little cat and you had to see what all of the commotion on this thread is about.
Well, when you get addicted and create multiple ebay and PayPal accounts, and then start buying all of this stuff that you don't need, don't come crying to me!

Tips and tricks for this thread:
1) arrive early! These deals are usually gone within 24 hours so you have to act quick.
2) typically only the links on the last few pages are "active"
3) please only post crazy, hard to believe, possibly too good to be true Ebay deals (for example, emax 2300kv motors for $2.47 or naze32 6dof flight controller for .99 or the esc's that I have listed below)

Original posting from April 2016:

I saw these on ebay just now:
Never seen them before so I thought I would share.
I know you get what you pay for, but $6.56 shipped for 4 20a esc's?!?!?!
It's probably too good to be true but I just ordered some

Maybe they will be better than the HK blueseries 12a escs that I am currently struggling to get around sync issues...

Let me know your thoughts!

general rule of thumb when it seems WAY too good to be true, it probably isn't.

Nowhere in the ad does it Actually mention that they're ZTW.

BuddyRC (reliable) sells them for ~$12..... Amazon is probably around the same price with free shipping.

Something's not right.

So truuuueeee ----- you get what you pay for. For $6.56 you probably get a crashed airplane.

I doubt I'll crash If these ESC's are defective because I usually run a separate BEC when I use a 20 amp or higher.

Now if they are defective and start a fire while in flight that's a different story!

Found 30a hobbywing platinum opto escs for a dollar each

There are also a lot of those thin long escs that people used to use (forgot the name) for around $1.50 each.

Well something is not right about these postings. The 20 amp ESC shows that there were only 3 left so I purchased all 3 of them. After logging in again to EBay the posting still shows 3 available. I did the same for the 30amp ESC. It shows 4 available so I purchased all four but it now still shows that there is four available. I think there may be a lot of us doing a EBay claim for refund next month. .

Airplane guys,
If you get any of the OPTO (no built in BEC) speed controllers make sure you pick up some of these $1.20 (free shipping) 5v 4A UBEC's to go with them for your receiver and servos.

No class, no smarts, and ugly
Seems too good to be true. Factory rejects?
