Well after 3 weeks of waiting for it to leave the factory, multiple calls with Traxxas support, and some new parts.... I present....
Traxxas really did take care of me! The replaced 3 motors, all the blades, included a new set of spare blades, and shipped it all in a EX-Connect QR-1 Box (inside of a bigger box of course)!
In the mean time I bought some extra blades... Now I have 28 spare blades.... I think I will be selling some haha
As of right now, I got one pack through it and I instantly regained my joy for this little thing. I was getting a little skeptical about it at first but it really is fun to fly around the room. The two batteries are charing right now, so I am in the 'I wanna fly mode.' Really trying to be careful with this thing now. Now that I realize how fragile and small it is, I have a new respect for how to fly it indoors. I am in a small dorm room (4 x 10) so until the wind stops, I will be rocking Normal mode.
Can't wait for these batteries to charge up and get some more flight time. Looking forward to keeping it away from Plano, TX for a while at all cost.
Keep y'all updated on anything I do next. I bought some small felt padding for the feet. I also might try some velcro (the soft side) and see how that works.
Anyways, enjoy y'alls flying. I am right now. And another shout out to Traxxas Support. None like it
Awesome! :) Looks like Traxxas changed the labels on the parts...
looks good i like the red i have a green one. traxxas has had mine now for just over a week. sent me an email saying repairs are done now waiting on shipping. they replaced two motors and the body. cant wait to get it back i had about 5 batts throu it then crashed trying not to hit my 1 year old.
Haha well I spoke too soon........ First flight..... bird went wild........ next thing I know it is out of my control and splat........
Back right motor completely dislodges from the bird itself...... So.... now it is back in a box and being shipped off to Plano again......... Dang :(( :unsure: :thumbdown: ;) <_< :eek:
