Previous owner said it was never flown. Damage was from shipping.

Dang. What a dweeb. Well, he may be right about the flying but it's definitely crashed.

Yep, I guess if you attempt to fly something and crash, then it "technically" never flew

Well it’s a trade and I tried to communicate with the previous owner to at least pay for a new fuse but denied it. He said I sold him an airplane ESC HW 40a FF V5. Which works great with the FBL GOV and soft start.

I also have the ESC in my ad description. Well I need $100 to fix the never flown heli.

Did you get any pics before the trade? Was it packed decent or loose in a box?

I suggest letting others here know who it was so they can make an educated decision on if they want to make a deal with said person.

Actually the heli was well packed with bubble wrap and card board to prevent it from moving. All good now I have parts coming from AMain hoping to get it flying soon. It will cost me 100 hard earned $

I am the one he traded with, the heli was not sent like that, I asked him if the box was damaged he said no. The heli was not flown and I looks like he tried to remove the tail fin which was glued on and damaged the boom. He traded me an oxy and was not agreeable to each of us keeping our esc, turns out he lied and put an airplane esc in it. On initial set up, the heli has no soft start and almost injured me, I left the tail blades on my mistake but was lied to about the esc model and when I went through the program setup the soft start was not available(hobby wing 40 , looked like the heli version).the damage to the oxy was far more expensive than the boom that he damaged on the comet. I have been on heat for years and have never had an issue, you should not be able to make a post like this that is dishonest.

Iím not going to be silent here and let this guy get away with this. Like a politician who lies when he knows the other person has evidence to the contrary, I have reported this to the moderators. I received the heli from him a few days before he got his. I thought it was strange that he didnít want to keep our own escís being we kept all our other electronics and they were both hobby wing. I bought a new esc $65, need a boom which is unavailable and a few other parts. I didnít complain , I chalked the wrong esc installed in the heli to inexperience and the other parts my fault for not thoroughly checking. I sent him dated pioctures of the comet and pictures of it packed, the little flipper landing gear didnít even have scratched. It was not flown because I could not fit all my electronics in it. When he contacted me about the damage I asked if the box was damaged because I had insurance. He did not want to return it just wanted money for the boom $44. When I. Confronted him about the problems with his heli and told him I was out at least a $100 he stopped communicating, I saved all of the text messages. I am not going to let someone like this ruin my reputation that Iíve had on here for over 20 years

Did you guys exchange photos before shipping? Alot of this can be mitigated through before and after pics. I've bought/sold/and traded many heli's with norstaroption and never had an issue.

I never lied about the heli you received. I wanted the 60 amp ESC because that’s the recommended ESC for the Mini Comet, the 40 amp might not be enough. I just received your heli yesterday and I will never intentionally break the heli so I can rip people off.

Here’s the heli I sent before packing it up. I know the HW 40 Fun fly doesn’t have a heli soft start. But I was using the internal gov of the Spirit.

I guess I’ll blame USPS for the damage.

Here are the pictures sent on the day it was shipped. Even if accept your premise, the boom is $44 and the esc is $64

I just don't see how shipping damage could make those specific marks and breaks without severely harming the box. With only 4 pictures this is supposition, but if it was crushed in shipping wouldn't that be discernible?

The reciever also mentioned that the packaging was bubbled wrapped well and cardboard installed in shipping box to prevent moving around.
He also said there were no visible marks of abuse during shipping on box...
I personally know Norstaroption for many years now and he's known in our community as an honest humble person to fly with.I hope you two can resolve this soon.
