The repair guys must be tired of me. But I am surely batting 1000 when it comes to micros. The first one I got was the Albatros
, was so excited to fly her. I tossed it and she took off perfect...this is going to be great. After about 3 mins of flight, no rudder. Back to the factory.
Second micro: A fancy little Champ
. Out of the box, charge the baterry..go to bind it....won't bind. Did everything we could do in the book.. It was'nt going to happen. Back to the factory.
Third Micro: A sweet looking little Playmate
. Everyone loves this little guy. Battery in, radio ready.....toss her....15 feet...no control. Another range check, all is good. Toss her.....10-15 feet...no control. OK, iam gonna bust this thing!! Another range check, walked 3 steps...no control. Then no bind. OK, back to the factory.
Fourth Micro: The beautiful Corsair
..and this thing is sweet! A fantastic job on this Micro. A flight for 3 mins...doing every thing you can throw at her, she did perfect..then......a free spinning motor. The motor would run, but the shaft was free spinning. Landed with no issues. Checked it out the best I knew how too, without cutting her apart. Seems the prop shaft was no longer engaged. BACK to the factory.
Now, I must say this....every plane I sent back was replaced by a new one. Kudo's to the repair people!! And every plane sent back to me has flown perfect. No issues at all. Except for the Alba..she's on her second motor. So...I am chalking this up as bad mojo! I just sent back the Corsair today..I will see what I get back.
So, my plan now is to order the next micro that comes along, don't open the box at all, just send it back and wait for the replacement.
Its like a good 30 foot putt, when ya sink it...ya just come back for more!!
