Yep, it was an ordeal. The worst company I have ever had the misfortune of dealing with. I did get the same car from elsewhere and it is brilliant, very fast and great value for money.
Thank god that's over. Plane sent back and money refunded. This took the shine off the wltoys cars for me tbh. Ive gone for a ftx carnage instead. :) Not from this shower obviously.
I thought i'd check back here to hopefully see you'd got your cars but i'm shocked. I will never be using Nitrotek after this and i'd called them to enquire about buying something so glad I never purchased from them! I hope you get your cars soon.
It's definitely not a mess of your own doing, the fault clearly rests with Nitrotek. I suspect, like you, they never had the car and hoped we would be accept a plane. I got an email from Lauren today, it was pretty passive aggressive to be honest. Still no apology or any humility whatsoever.
My suspicion is that they didn't even have this car in stock. It was only ever available for pre order. How many customers can resist having a play with an incorrectly sent RC plane and so end up having to keep it? The fact the Cessna was heavily reduced recently points to it not selling well and Nitrotek being overstocked with it, making the whole deal even more suspicious. For me personally there are 3 choices. 1. Pay the £6 and hope for the best. 2. Try contacting the Marple warehouse to confirm it is a car. 3. Cancel and try getting my cash back. Either way it's a massive mess. Of my own doing. All I can say lads is that I'm really sorry and I'm going to leave the deal posting for a while. All the best and have a good Christmas
