They "learn" how to make composite models by literally pulling molds off the Valenta Storm.
I hope that the new Sloperacer products will not be at the same risk.Gordon
Or did you mean the designs might get 'remodelled' in the Far East?
Sorry to read this, you guys at Sloperacer went above and beyond to try and help smooth over the significant quality problems with RCRCM product.When OleRC came on the scene the depth of their cynicism was made abundantly clear.They "learn" how to make composite models by literally pulling molds off the Valenta Storm.Then they get a Westerner (James) to offer designs and help promote them.Then they got distributors to line up and support their substandard productThen they screwed everyone involved by opening OleRC.For me, total scumbags. I won't fly one of their planes because of it, as much as I very much admire James' design chops and desperately want to check one of his planes out.Anyways, sorry that you had to go through this, and best of luck with the new endeavor. It can only be better!! Steve
Us the customers of course have the biggest part to play by buying the originals and not the copies....Obviously!
Remember, it's a level playing field out there, if it's better, if its cheaper, it'll sell. End of.
The scary part is that if China got its act together, they could produce the quality and quantity at the lowest cost.
Well I've purchased from UK suppliers, namely T9 and Sloperacer and they are both great.I wanted a typhoon and efuz to go with it and my only option was to go to olerc directly. My model and accessories all arrived today within 5 days of payment and the quality is better than expected.I also deal with several Chinese companies within my consumer electronics business and like UK ones most are excellent and a few are not.Thats my personal experience.
Jim, it should be noted that those issues aren't those of the consumer, and I'm confident that Tony is dealing with the changes in a businesslike way that will strengthen SlopeRacer for the future. Z
James, I really think that you should now concentrate on your partnership with Tony and stop slating competition. We all know of your issues with RcRcm and to be honest with you I'm sick of hearing it!!I wouldn't like the world to know about my confidential business transactions and I don't think you need to go into details about stock Tony has purchased and not received yet.I'd much rather hear about your new designs and future developments. I always believe no smoke without Fire. Just hope a few years down the road we don't get a repeat of this type of Thread/threads with Sloperacer as the Bad guy?Dave
As you say - lets stick to the good stuff.
And on that note lets focus on what's happening right now. I haven't kept up with what's happening on this post but it all seems very negative but in actual fact it's quite the opposite.
I've just pushed the button for 5 more to test the production quality and we are literally weeks away (unless something turns up in the flying tests).You can pre order the Schwing now. 70+ are already spoken for.
Where is the clapping icon?Well done Tony and James for Schwing. That looks fantastic.Well done Tony for remaining true to this hobby.
James you're saying coupling the flaps to the elevator is a new idea!?
