    Hello. Sorry if it's a dupe, couldn't find anything using a Google site search, but please get rid of it mods if it is.

    Saw this on "another place". Looks like the £40 saving over the DJI originals could have cost you a lot more... :shock:

    This is for the orange-coloured ones ("Ttonger"). Original post linked below.

    That's for real? There really is a Jacky Banggood? I don't know who had the chutzpah to buy one of these things in the first place. Talk about taking huge risks for minor savings... :shock: :shock: :shock:

    I've bought stuff from banggood before, things like CREE led torches, other small electronics. Never had a problem but then I wouldn't necessarily buy anything from there that was critical to the operation of anything else I owned.

    Mr Bond, Dr. Jacky Banggood is one of our most promising young scientists at Q branch. He has developed something called a lithium polymer battery which also doubles as an improvised explosive device. He's integrated the Phantom Vision with the battery into the Aston Martin but the rotorpixel machine gun mount won't be available for another six months.

    Here is a list of his research team:

    Honey Rider
    Holly Goodhead
    ***** Galore
    Plenty O'toole
    Mary Goodnight
    Chew Mee
    Dr. Molly Warmflash

    Thanks for this, very useful info. I have contacted the ebay seller I purchased from 'wholesale366' to check if he knows anything about this batch, probably won't. But I will thoroughly inspect the battery when it arrives & probably return it regardless.. Can't risk it.
