Any one else getting seriously tired of this? It's made me think I don't want a drone any more!
There are thousands of people back ordered for months getting one lie after another from Bangood support. They brought about 300 into the Czech warehouse a few weeks ago so about 5% if European orders on the Spanish warehouse may fill. Banggood will deliver it to you in 2-3 weeks from their China warehouse but it'll cost you about an extra €100 minimum.

With at least 10,000 orders you can see why they are messing early buyers around. If you cancel from $400 and reorder at €500 times day 5,000.... They want you to cancel.

Agreed on the value but as it's only an iteration of the 2018 X8 there are a disturbing number of issues out of the box and the random and mechanical examples I've seen are symptomatic of hasty poorly trained assembly. Typical of a blockbuster product.
But , because of the initial price point, there are also a lot of people buying this as their first drone and that's not helping it's profile.
Either way Banggoods treatment of customers has driven a lot of people to DJI with the extra money deemed worth it to get away from the messing about and also for after sales/warranty support.
The Mi 4K will not be beaten any time soon for overall performance, reliability and price!

Another backordered pal sent me this from an X8 Facebook support group.
I'm not on Facebook but on the RC groups which have sadly degenerated into a sniping fest and even split into three!
I may join Facebook for more of this but I'm now sending it to Bangood Customer service!

I just got a shipping notification from the Fimi shop on Ali.
Ordered 17th June, Shipped 28th.
They said speedy delivery, but the notification said to expect to receive it within the next 89 days

The Hubsan Zino 2 is on sale for $459 / €407.91 from 28th - 30th June from Banggood In stock and shipping in 24 hours.
https://www.banggood.com/Hubsan-Zino...p-1635081.html
Also get 7.42% cashback from Topcashback bringing the price down to roughly €380 shipping from China (no EU warehouse as flights are still being restricted).
EU Priority is €11.34 or shipping from China with Free tariff insurance (no extra charges using either method).
I would bet China warehouse will be just as fast, but would understand anybody not willing to risk it. #

For anybody willing to cancel their FIMI X8 SE 2020 they could contact banggood via chat and maybe get extra BG points to maybe get a larger discount, (they offered me 800) - but I don't think they work with a promo product unless the agent can do something.

DJI Spark is €272 using code BGSPARKHK and whatever TCB brings it down to further https://www.banggood.com/DJI-Spark-2...p-1692694.html

I've cancelled my order. Sick of this tbh. Might buy a used Mavic Air.



I messaged them again this morning and they would not give me any indication about the date, so I cancelled. 3 business days to process refund so should have it by Thursday.

Hit them immediately with a dispute for non delivery on PayPal or your credit card, you’ve already engaged unsuccessfully without any resolution. Why bother? Because they’ll refund you almost instantaneously and it damages their profile with PayPal or credit card companies.

I canceled over a week ago and no refund was processed by wednesday so opened a dispute in PayPal, they replied and appear to be beating around the bush sending generic messages within paypal so gonna have to escalate it to get it sorted

Same as you won in the raffle and going to hang on. I have a mavic mini to keep me amused until the Fimi arrives so no major time pressure.

I wonder if they were to refund a raffle winner would they notice that they had already refunded over €50 or would they refund the full amount ?

I'm heading into Paypal after hearing about someone in Ireland who's sticking it Banggood on the basis if he's a big enough PITA they'll get him his drone. Or maybe he's just venting! Apparently he's instigating a separate PayPal dispute for each individual accessory bought for the drone from Banggood. He's claiming they’re defective as he can't test them because Banggood won't give him his drone. He's also dragging each case to the limit and then opening another. Whether PayPal rule against him or not and I'm sure they will, it's definitely causing Banggood grief as most sellers fear the wrath of PayPal who tend to default toward buyers.

I had to laugh because it's one way of passing the waiting time which in my case has now been pushed out to July 10th. Based on dates committed so far, confidence level is 1%.
Now, to PayPal.....

I received my Drone carry case today, hopefully won't be too long until the drone gets here now.
I'm just hoping it wasn't on that lorry that crashed in Belgium recently :/

Which case did you go for. I'm weighing up some options while I wait for the drone :-)

The Spark is coming up at $259 when I click on that link. That's €230 even before TCB.
