So what is this page all about ?

Very simple, it is designed to reflect the views of a great many RC helicopter pilots in regards to the quality and reliability of many of the products that we all use, or rather the lack of those attributes.

The reason it has been added is because it seems that quite a few of the manufacturers of our helicopter spares and parts, and possibly even some resellers are making money from making or selling very low quality goods, or passing cheap copies off as original products, to the detriment and extra cost of us all.

In addition to the cost of replacing parts that fail far too regularly and for no good reason, there is always the issue of SAFETY. We all know that if a part fails on our helicopter whilst in flight, it is going to go down almost anywhere it wants to hit the ground.  This could easily be into other people, or ourselves, or into animals, or even into traffic driving down a road.

Now some people are going to say that improved quality will result in the manufacturers increasing their prices, which may indeed be true, BUT if you factor in the number of these items that we have to repurchase and replace in our helicopters regularly, plus the costs of other repairs necessary due to the resultant crash to allow us to get our helicopters airworthy again, the additional original costs will be well and truly worthwhile.

Do any of us want to be responsible for hitting something due to a crash - NO OF COURSE WE DON'T, and   we want to be able to trust the components we purchase to perform their given tasks properly and safely.

I hope that as many people as possible will contribute to this special feature of the Site.  

Maybe we can shame these manufacturers into improving the quality of the goods they sell to us ?
