    Can I take advantage of being "Off Topic" to ask if anybody has purchased from one of the many online quad sellers in China/HK - that is defective and needs to go back???

    Having paid out US$203 - AU$285 or so depending on the current fluctuation in exchange rates.
    The quad just wanders around and does not react to stick controls as it should.
    Its not a newbie lack of knowledge - I asked a guy who is experienced and flies a couple the smaller Syma X5 series... and it had him beat!

    To send back from Aussie will cost - from what I can find online from Oz Post - around au$50-au$60.
    Wait till it gets there and wait at least another 3 weeks or more for a replacement to arrive.

    If anybody has done this before.. I would appreciate your results.
    I am also offered a new quad for a reduced cost - which is just us$20 less than store price! or a us$30 credit.

    FYI if curious - I purchased online thinking I could use a P3 clone to get used to "manual" RC flying before buying a P3... reading about short supply - I opted to by a P3P before the stuff arrived from China.
