I question if BH's activity is legal. I have my own business and I believe I saw a merchant and industry codex when I signed the LLC contract with the State Of California.

At least we, as the consumers, have the power to shutdown the business - just don't order from them and spread the word.

I am still waiting for an answer from Pete since 3 weeks :-(

He hasn't had any activity since the 6th from his profile page.

Hi Hasek,

You are right. I knew about all the BH issues before and still ordered with them. I couldn't believe that it is really that bad. I found a few threads where people said that there were lots of problems but everything got better with BH. Well, apparently nothing has really changed and looking at the newer threads, it seems that it is the same picture overall again.

Well, I learned my lesson and have the experience now. I don't complaint, because I expected that it will go like this, but still I am disappointed. I am very against shady business practices.

Anyway, I will not give up.

Thanks,

Andy

Hey Pete, I am looking to buy my first edf jet and would like the A-10 or F-117. Which of these would you say is the easier to fly and most durable.
Thanks,Ted

Buy both and you'll have a slight chance of getting one working airframe ready to fly.

Thanks.

This one is for everyone's amusement, an example of unlimited stupidity, stupid hope, darn idiotic stubbornness ? - or WTH is wrong with me?
So… I needed this motor…. Went back to the web site..yes, the BH one. Spent an hour on the phone waiting... In the mean time… I see the new A10…
So I got someone, ordered the motor, AND THE PLANE.
And guess what, that was on the 28th…of Oct. In the meantime, they lost the shipping (well, not BH , UPS, so they say) - and nothing else happened. If you are LOL now- I do not mind. I deserve it, and anyone else who does not understand…. YOU WILL GET SCREWED if you try to buy from BH! That is amazing, and works every time - but try it out on your own, go ahead...

you should just order from them again. Not even BH can screw up 3 orders in a row....Or can they? Folks stay tuned for the next exciting episode of PT Barnum was right!
