I did opened a dispute on paypal for my drone ordered on the 12 of november, and they said they can refund me only on 172 euros as I didn't bought any insurance. So I will wait few more months and see if drone arrived before summer.


If you paid with PayPal you have the protection that they provide. That protection entitles you to a full refund if you do not receive what you paid for.

Forget dealing with whomever you bought the drone from. Deal with PayPal. Escalate the dispute to a claim and leave it at that. They will have 10(or 14) days to respond to the PayPal claim, if they do not respond you will be refunded by PayPal.

Yes I payed with paypal, but who answered was the customer service of gearbest. As I bought a spare battery that arrived already long time ago, I would prefer to receive the drone than the refund, so I will wait a bit more. Its frustrating the delay.

Anyone tempted to take her out in/above the fog?

I wouldn't if I were you. Fog is air saturated with water. It's close to freezing outside. You'll risk Icing up the drone and damaging it.

Thought as much. There's a few youtube videos of others doing it.
I'll keep her indoors for now

I had it in my hand with that thought today, but noticed that 3 out of the 4 motors seemed "coggy". One would tun nice and freely with my hand, but the others, to different degrees, had a distinct notchiness to them, as if they had bearings on the way out. It doesn't have a lot of work done, so I hope it's not that.

Has anyone elses have that feel to theirs?

Ahh grand. I ran it for a minute to see if it was alright. Thought I saw it vibrate the giro a bit, like it would result in a jello effect, but it does seem fine. Good to know it's normal for the motors to be that way, and it's not just me.

My motors jump through the fields as permanent magnet motors do and when i spin them by hand they are ok but when I fly it sometimes has a bit of a highpitch noise sometimes which i think could sound like a dry bearing. Not sure.
I always observe them on shutdown to see if any slow down noticeably quicker or have any heat in them.


On a seperate note got revenue letter today for battery ordered on ebay.

Sent a screen shot of ebay to see if it is good enough.

There definitely seems to be differences in the motors although have no scratchiness or other strange sounds on mine. The motors are about €12 to replace but still expect it them to last at least two years of weekend flying.

So annoying, they seem to catch the batteries a lot..

Yeah, that will do. They just need a value so they can add the tax accordingly..
