    Hi guys, I picked up a kit for my latest scale build. A Chaos 600/ESP clone. Great for scale mechanics. I open the box and... well see the photo. Looks like the kit was put together with stock parts laying around. I honestly dont mind that but there is hardware missing and a few parts. So the Flasher, Phonixtech and Chaos are all the same. But the main frames in this box are HK600 frames. Some fishy stuff here... I'll let you know how this turns out..... IMG_0667.JPG

    Exactly, but I wouldn't even mind that except the bearing blocks don't fit right in the frames nor do the little plastic servo nuts that go on the inside.... Only me this could happen to... lol

    If you can see issues before you start building, send it back, there will be more issues pop up once you get into the build. Not worth the stress that it will bring.

    Sorry to here that fran. That does suck. Did you get that kit of EBay? I'm very Leary about buying stuff of them. Hopefully you used PayPal because there very good about getting your money back. Good luck this time and future purchases.

    There is only one company that I know of that sells Chaos frames. That company is RC Aerodine. Unless you got it from them then its not a chaos. If you did order from them then get in contact with (I think his name is) Cliff. That should be the owner. The company is based out of Texas so getting support should be fairly easy.

    I would be a bit tweaked about the situation myself.

    Well, it was RC Aerodyne. Spoke to Cliff. He assured me there not HK frames and is sending all the missing stuff. The frames are 2mm thick and nicely machined so I don't have a problem using them. He was very nice and understanding. Well see....
