I will try the water trick probably not boiling at the start and have a try.

No damage to parcel in transit although probably inspected by customs. With the AXN bit were missing out of a sealed bag.

Strongly worded emails have been sent and irrevalent replies received but no parts.

Probably should take the attitude of some others , you get what you pay for.

Ordered 3 batteries from HK (Aus Warehouse) on 15/10, arrived 22/10, found one faulty (checked as a 2S should be 3S), logged complaint 21/10, store credit applied 24/10 after sending photo as requested. Good job :D
The only gripe (if I was a sook :roll: ), now I have to order another and wait (and get on with the usual chores around the house/yard :shock: ) :lol:

Oh.......and the faulty battery :?: .......no request to be returned so...............terminated 8-)

Dear Cynr,
Use of antipodean slang such as sook on an internationaly read forum is somewhat confusing.
Could you not stick to standard internationally understood terminology such as a sulky baby, weed, wimp, etc?
Think of the French the Eastern Europeans, oh ...the Humanity!

:lol: :lol: :lol: LMAO

I was going to use the term "wuzz,woose,wuss" but apparently they are all misspellings and can refer to anything from "a big girls blouse" to a "hybrid moose" :o . I thought the term came via cockney rhyming slang for cat ergo puss/wuss, my feline would get offended if he knew his nickname "puss" was a derogatory term. You don't upset a 10kg cat and survive unscathed.
Here we are acquiescing to a nightly ritual, guess which one is the sook........... :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's a better pussy, mine is just BIG......stands 500mm at the hips and 950mm nose to tail (was longer but had 70mm chopped off). I'll take a pick of him doing a stretch 1500mm paw to paw. When we have a blue (and often) I'm the knife in the gun fight :lol: :lol: :lol:
He is on a diet, 80g dry food (special fat cat food) and 1 teaspoon lean kangaroo per day.

i don't know if u guys know this but if u pay for your orders via paypal you covered via buyer protection so if something arrives broken missing or not at all, and hobyking or any other online store that is stuffs u around, you can claim a refund through paypal as long as u do the claim 45days for the date you payed. and it works ive had to do it a couple of times unfortunately and it worked out fine, it also makes the stores get off there ass when they get the messages from paypal
