    Always pays to have a few test set-ups so you can check things the moment you receive them. I always check motors, ESCs etc, as the sooner you find a problem, the sooner you can start the replacement process. Ali Express can make you wait for up to 90 days before making a claim, (this was recently increased from around 60 days) but they and Banggood are quite good with making their suppliers refund for damaged or non delivered items.

    Not sure if things will change, as the CCP has put thousands of its own people in as workers after Jack Ma retired from Ali Express, (also infiltrated many other technology companies to 'keep an eye on business procedures' (yeah right!)

    HK is part owned by an Aussie and has been slapped with a $2.8m fine required to be paid this year, so who knows what will happen to them (not to mention the Chinese takeover of Hong Kong with associated business interference). Their stock has decreased by about 50% in the last few years so the choices have reduced dramatically from say 5 yrs ago, (probably saving up for the fineπŸ˜€).

    Well done Mike.
    Your persistence has definitely paid off and it's a great result πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜€.
    I doubt that it will put you, or many off us buying Hobbyking stuff entirely but I think we have all learned a valuable lesson that it's good to test stuff works as early as possible, and if it don't...kick up a fuss with the supplier and be that 'dog with a bone'.
    Great result !!
    Robbob.

    Well would you believe it. you may remember that I had received a message from Hobby King about a refund for the faulty 90 amp ESC.

    "Hi Michael. We have received the letter in regard to the boat ESC. One year warranty on such products from date of purchase. We would advise checking and testing products prior to long term projects. Regards Ian, Hobbyking warranty team."

    I wasn't very happy with this response so I decided to pursue my claim, I wrote a number of letters to Hobby King over the last 3 months and finally they have agreed to refund me.

    Remember the "Dog", well that was me, a dog with a bone, "never give up"

    Has the postman returned or is he looking for a dog to deliver the mail to you.

    Hope it works for you, did initially for me too.
    Now using stuff from Banggood and that seems to work.
    Got five in service and they all seem OK.
    Good Luck, hope you let us know how things work out.

    I hardly dare say which one I ended up with - the same as the faulty one πŸ˜† it fitted the mounting and space available so a straight swop.

    Hi Mike,
    Glad you have the problem resolved.
    What type of ESC did you finally use?

    Hi Mike.
    It's good to hear that you are now able to reverse yourself out of an awkward place.........if the postman tries to get his revenge that is πŸ˜‚
    Also glad that you now have a fully working ESC πŸ˜€πŸ‘
    Rob.
