Default Watch out for this guys!!!! Please read!!!!

I recently bought a g401b gyro from cncheli and it worked mint so I decided to order a second one for my protos. Well after searching I found that chaosrc sold them for 40 shipped so I decided to go thru them. Well I waited about a week but I got my second gyro in and thought nothing of it. Today I read in the main heli section to watch out for chaosrc because it is ran by a "nick jones".......... no relation Anyway I googled his name and came up with quite a story, seems he goes by about 5 names and has scammed many people out there. He's only 16/17 years old too!!!!! I'm going to post a link for your reading pleasure but I feel bad cause since the g401b became popular I have been telling people that chaosrc sells them cheaper thus I feel like I could be putting other people in the way of being scammed. Like I said I ordered a gyro off him and I got it within a week with no problems. I suggest staying away from his store from what I have read.

like I said I ordered a gyro from chaos and got it no problem I don't get how he's "16" and has an online store of his own, he must have a parent or some one else in on it with him. I also read he worked for helidirect or was sponsored by helidirect or something.

Just to clear things up I know he has nothing to do with Helidirect.com. I was just mentioning how it sucks a slime ball use to work for a great company. I didn't want it to sound like he is still with HD like I may have made it sound. OOPS!
