No haven't seen any $$ yet. Was supposed to send it out last week.
I guess it's time name are buyer. Seems he has a slow pay on RR as well.

I sold a throttle jokey pro to Sceadu50dude back in Feb. and I'm still waiting on my $.
I was only $50 for a like new item. I meet him at mac's last year's heli event. Thought he'd be good for it so I sent it to him. So he could get it in and in the air.
If anyone else buy's from him $$ first.

Yes there was quiet a thread on the other forums about him. Seems you have to call and talk to his parents to get any results. At least that seems to be what all the others that were taken had to do.
05-04-2005, 04:00 PM
yea! It's more of a principle issue more than money. You 'd think a kid of 16 could find a way to support his own hobby to some degree.
I know I could make $50 pretty easy doing odd jobs or cutting grass at that age.
I may have to do something like that to get it. I'd rather they make him work for it.
05-05-2005, 01:04 PM
Like everybody on RR is straight with me now. I got everything settled. I had the stuff sent out and everything handled way before they called my parents which was fine they knew what was going on but knew how long it had been. Yeah I was in trouble but I got stuff straight. I will get your MO to you Chris.
What really sucks is im paying for something I cant even use anymore as its on my heli thats been MIA for 2 months. :shock: So im out of the Hobby. But I will get you your $50 bucks Chris.
05-10-2005, 03:46 PM
Did you get your money????
05-11-2005, 01:17 AM
No not yet.
05-17-2005, 01:10 AM
Still waiting for the $ haven't seen anything yet. Kids just forget to easy.
05-17-2005, 02:28 AM
Kids just forget to easy.
He did not forget, paying you just is not his priority. It's only $50, you should be able to waight a couple of years or just forgive his debt. Your word is all you have that's worth any thing and his aint worth nothing by the looks of it, to bad :roll:
05-17-2005, 04:36 PM
:bomb: Ill get you the money Chris. I know i keep saying it and putting it off but I will get you your money. Im just really busy as school is out really soon and im trying to get stuff done before the year is up.
05-18-2005, 10:40 AM
Dam it all any how Chris you are as stupid as a brick! Donít you know you are just screwing your self!!! Man you are stupid! The only correct answer is to put his money in the mail today!!! Your word is shot and the only chance you have to begin to redeem your self is to start now and continue holding true to your word from hear on out. If you donít learn this soon all you will ever be is trash and we already have plenty of that to go around. You can be better, itís not to late!

Ill get you the money Chris. I know i keep saying it and putting it off but I will get you your money. Im just really busy as school is out really soon and im trying to get stuff done before the year is up.
When your older and out on your own. You will learn the above will not work.
I sure wish I could tell my mortgage company, power company, water company, and other creditors each month that I was just too busy to get around to paying them. The mortgage company would put me out on street quickly. The utilities company would turn them off. The other creditors would repo the items.
Really no excuse when it comes to paying debts. Just going to to bite you in the long run.
05-18-2005, 12:46 PM
I put $50 dollars Cash in the mail today. I have sent money before with no problems and I wrote the address's Clearly so if any problems they can send it back to me. I put it in a piece of Printing paper so nobody can tell its money. If it doesnt get there ill send another $50. Just trying to get you the $50 ASAP.
05-18-2005, 01:08 PM
Nicely said Russ...Once again you have spoken clearly... later
05-18-2005, 03:15 PM
It's more a Principle issue than money. Don't feel bad I had to pay $5000 for a car I didn't even have in my possion. Goes to show you how easily you can get screwed by your X wife.. THink she will ever pay me back NOT!!!! So don't cry over $50.. just don't Co-sign for any of your friends Unless your absoluty sure they are worth it.
Just be the man you can be And make good on your word. If you want respect from others you have show respect.
05-18-2005, 11:34 PM
Guys it seems as you have hashed it out..........I have a question.........Lets say just for the sake of it , you borrow a good friends parts or even there Heli or even if you are flying someones Heli and you are flying irresponsibly or you just make a mistake and there is a loss that you are responsible for, what do you do???????????? Ask Teeroy what I do?????????????????????? I believe that we should not be quick to judge others but I feel we should set examples with our actions. Now I am not saying stick your head in the sand but always try to put yourself in the other MANS shoes. In this case $50 would not break BigHands but because there has been a loss , I don't think Hands should be expected to just donate to the cause unless he choose to. Hands did CHris a favor in getting the product to him and if chris had sent the money right away they would have passed in the mail..............guess it worked out in the end. Hope the heli showes up.

Its been a little over 2 months I think Clint. Still no Sceadu. IM out of the hobby as of now. Will be for a while........ .
05-20-2005, 06:25 PM
You know for as long as I've been flying,I've never borrowed any chopper....If you cant afford to fly,then dont..
If you do fly someones machine and crash it, you should fix it. tute tute baby!!!!!!!
06-04-2005, 09:02 PM
I hear loaner helis are the best. :lol: I know I have had a few crashed but, it was not due to pilot error. So I do not hold them responsable for them at all. I need to get me a new heli mechanic.
06-05-2005, 08:11 AM
still waiting on the$$. This kid likes making postal servive people happy with cash contributions.
Maybe one day.
06-05-2005, 08:27 AM
Well I figured you would say when/if you got the money, I was beginning to wonder if maybe you had not received it. The US Postal Service has gotten a bad rap, I think they do a very good job, in my 36 years they have only screwed up for me once and even then it was just 3 or 4 days late. Itís UPS that pisses me off! Seems like every time I have to have it fast and pay the freight to have it fast they some how screw it up and put it on the wrong truck, I know it is not every time but several times over the past couple years.
Sorry for rambling but my point is that if you did not get your money then he did not send it, to bad I guise he has decided to be the trash of this world rather then one that helps redeem it.
06-05-2005, 10:08 AM
still waiting on the$$
Chris, what can I say? I am sure it was never mailed.
Sceadu50dude, do what is right. Own up to your obligations and admit that you haven't sent the funds yet. You are only 16 and everyone here will give you the benefit of you making a mistake, but dragging this out, is not in your favor. Do what is right and you will be rewarded. Tell the truth and make your commitments good, that is all anyone wants to see happen.
UPS that pisses me off!
Hey Russ, I stopped using UPS and strictly use FedEx Ground and USPS Priority. These two services top UPS by leaps and bounds.
Hey Rodney, did you ever find your Predator or get a plank for the heli you sent. There should be a way to find this guy, if you haven't made any progress. I will be glad to help. BTW, we all missed your Hot Wings at Chattanooga! How did the house move go?
06-05-2005, 03:17 PM
Yah Priority mail is great & Fed X is good to. The only problem is when companies I order from only use UPS then you have no choice. One of my customers has sent me stuff UPS from 40 miles away (Portland OR area) that went through Montana and took over 7 days to get her, they use several carriers so they put a note in there system to always use Fed X to ship to me in the future.
06-05-2005, 04:03 PM
7 days to get here
Yep, that stinks. I guess UPS has a system and when you move that many packages, the system works.... 'er most of the time???? :wink:
Have a great week !!!! I hope that Chris (Sceadu50dude) will step up to the plate and do the right thing.
