BananaHobby.com Complaint - BananaHobby is SCAM!

Review by DJJ on 2009-04-04
MONTEREY PARK, CALIFORNIA -- Hello guys! the bananhobby.com is horror! I was stupid to buy from them:)! I ordered ART-TECH Eagle Eey helicopter with camera and after I receive it I immediately went in to the problems! When I open it the helicopter looks like it was already in use! Scratched paint is some place plastic broke, all canopy is dirty... So I was thinking ok never mind lets try to fly:))! I charge the battery put it in, starting up and at first it fly good enough for me, but this was not enough just to fly:)! This helicopter is with wireless camera and you can get picture on your PC and record or even on TV... So I install the software connected that wireless audio/video transmitter connect the battery and after some moment was ready to grab my RC controller and helicopter jump by it self! that was horror guys:)! It fly just for the moment, went down but the rotor still on! I try to stop the motor by remote control no reaction:)! The rotor gets my laptop power cord and wrap it:)! There was smoke, smell! I was able to disconnect battery even that connection was hot! At first I can't understand what happen:)! But just after couple minutes wait a minute:))!! this is 72Mghz helicopter:))! I was thinking that I bought 2.4ghz helicopter as they shows on the web page:)! But I receive 72Mghz and everybody know that 72 Mghz isn't safe at all because if somebody around you in the range of up to 700 yards have the same frequency any toy it could interference! That is what happen to me! and remember guys I was buying 2.4ghz because I know that is safe and with RC helicopter better be very careful because those spinning rotors can heart you pretty serious even kill!

And you know what guys:)? the Bananahobby don't want to hear anything about refund:)! There is the girl her name is [snip] who is very rude an when I'm asking did you send the right helicopter she answers like parrot all the time the same: YOU DID NOT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, WE WON'T REFUND! This is true horror guys:)! NEVER EVER BUY FROM THIS VENDOR THEY ARE SCAMMERS 100%! The FBI should investigate them immediately! I will suit them for sure! DJ

This is definite bait and switch. Dispute the charge with your credit card company.

If you really want to go through the trouble of suing them in small claims court, they are based at:
18442 Santa St
Rowland Heights, CA 91748

You may have to do that if the credit card company can't help you.
