Default I'm getting worried..

A couple of days ago I won a E-Flight Futana 300 from a guy on e-bay that has an inpecable feedback.. 100%.. He has nothing but good comments on his feed back..

So, I won it with 20 dollars plus 10 for shipping.. there were 15 bids on it amongst 3 people including me..


So, I win this thing and I imediately pay using paypal.. Payment went through and He ascepted it and e-bay tracking says it in route.. It shows that I have payed and He received payment..

Today I was tracking the progress and This same guy has another futana 300 posted for sale. he is using the same picture and exactly the same wording.. There's 2 guys bidding.. the same 2 guys that were bidding against me 2 days ago..


What the hell is going on I messaged Him.. Is it not my foamie you are reselling, when you have clearly received payment from me?

2 days to go on this sale and I hope he's not trying to ruin his reputation on e-bay..

I know it's easy for me to say, but folks that sell on ebay do this all the time. You shouldn't have any worries. Ebay makes it very easy with just a few clicks to re-post the same sales ad. It's much harder to re-word and re-submit new photos. It's much simpler to run the same auction again.

The seller probably bought a lot of these planes and are selling them one by one.

Thanx for making me feel better brother... but what gets me worried is that, He Posted the same picture and it also explains the same thing, that it has a small crack that's easily repairable on the vertical stabilizer..

It sounds as if He is reselling the same item.. not another new one.. it has that same crack..

As an ebay seller with over 5000 sales, re-listing an ad is the only way I could sell lots without tossing hundreds of hours away doing the same thing over and over. Yeah, a specific description as you outline is suspect, but dont assume this guy is wanting to toss his 100% feedback easily, nor that you are 'worth it' (dont take it personally that his collective feedback is more important than your specific sale).

Let the deal run its course. You have all the protection you need and more if he does choose to toss in the towel on a perfect record which on all points seems unlikely.

Your covered, dont worry, sellers normally have a bunch of blem items, and use a common description to advertise it, and you used paypal, NO problem, Now, go fly and have fun, Chellie

I'm sure you'll be fine. Unless he got a few blemished kits he likely had another and just forgot to remove the comments about the blemishes. I've done similar things.

Yeah, I buy old network equipment and sell on ebay just for pocket money. I end up with 10-20 of the same item and just hit the button that says, sell similar, and just click next next next. I don't sell them all that the same time because that can drive down the price.

I know how you feel Bud. I recently bought a JR XP9303 from a guy on rcg, everything went fine until they day I figured it should have arrived, 2 days later still no radio... did a bit more research and saw where he had sold the exact same radio over on RC Universe and the guy who bought it already had it delivered.

I had this sinking feeling that I got scammed. Fortunatley it all worked out and I got the radio. Turns out he did in fact have two he was selling and he had put the wrong zip code on my box and it ended up in South Carolina. I got it a couple days later and all was right with the world.

I wouldn't get too worried. You'll get your plane.

... and Happy Birthday!

It all turned out good. Received the model as seller stated. It was a very good flier, but very very fragile.. It flew about 30 times before retiring..

That in itself is inexcusable though. With a computer, you print the address right off of the computer. He, and you are lucky that it got sent back, after being sent to the wrong address. What ever happened to folks that dot their i's and cross their t's? Seems that there are fewer and fewer. I had a hobby shop send my order to the wrong address, and they kept it. They kept it, because they were in their system, and thus were into rc. "Oh cool, some free rc stuff!" I did get refunded though. They gave some lame mistake about a computer glitch. I know what happened though. They are way out in CA, and they probably have only 1 other customer near me, as the guy did live near me. How and why they didn't just process the entire order and shipping label with a standard computerized merchant inventory/shipping program however, is beyond me.

Even worse, was a guy that I gave a speed control to for free. He gave me the wrong address. I actually caught it after it shipped, as for whatever reason I was looking up his zip, and realized that the zip he gave me was in another state. I told him, and he asked if I would resend it, if it came back. Now you have to be kidding me. He got lucky, and the PO figured out his error, and got it to him.
